    I just want to be able to remove bloatware, and maybe use Titanium Backup to freeze other apps. I don't want to install or run custom ROMS.

    So, I believe that I just need to ROOT, I do not need to unlock the bootloader, is that correct?

    Assuming that's a yes, I'm concerned about the warning regarding using the ChainFires Exynos Abuse APK. Will using that app to root truly open my phone up to exploits? Is there another ROOTing process that is less dangerous?

    Finally found out what a bricked phone looked like.
    I was cleaning up a Note 2 factory. Did the Vol up, Menu Power thing and wiped the cache and did a factory reset. Then after making sure my drivers were up to date and MY ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM WAS DISABLED (most posts forget to mention that step) I started Odin, connected my phone, plugged phone to computer and loaded stock rom to PDA and ran it. It ran to PASS at which point it rebooted. It closed down right after the reboot and I can no longer reboot, because it doesn't see the battery. No matter if I charge either of the two batteries in the phone (The battery graphic always shows zero) or externally (the batteries charge light went from red to green), The battery graphic always shows zero and the phone will not boot into any of the three modes. By the way plugging it into a charger makes no difference, no power.
    Anyone have a fix for this or do I have a doorstop?
