    So far the process hasn't gone smoothly for people on xda, I suggest waiting a while.

    There is a step where you are supposed to make sure the grey box is checked or unchecked (I don't remember) and it isn't working for anyone.
    It isn't even working for the ones that said "you guys don't know what you're doing", that's a paraphrase.

    Yeah it seems something is wrong with Rev3 of Adam's file. I'm guessing it will be fixed before the day ends. Obviously he has a working method so most likely this was a small oversight.

    Nothing like a small oversight to make you **** yourself when it comes to messing with the boot image lol

    Hahaha I hear that. But the good news is because of this oversight you'll never make it to a point in the process where any damage can be done. The worst that would happen is you waste `20 minutes re-flashing over Rev3 to a stock rooted system

    It is working for me. I started with Jellybean, then Odined Revision 3. The first time the 'Phone Bootloader Update' was greyed out. Flashed anyway, got a 'Pass' then used the power button to restart the phone. Didn't disconnect the USB connection. Didn't wipe anything.

    The phone restarted and I got to the Gmail login screen and shut down the phone. Then I used Volume Down, Home, and Power to reenter the Download screen.
    Odin recognized the phone 0:[COM3] for me. Then I simply checked the Phone Bootloader Update. Even though the box appeared greyed out, the checkmark stuck in there.

    Then I hit Start again. And it's almost done flashing.

    Does this include custom recovery or is this unlock only? Hopefully we'll get Clockwork touch or TWRP.

    Good news, Adam has uploaded a repacked version of Revision3. Hopefully now everything goes smoothly and as expected.

    Then I can certainly wait, as unlocking provides no real benefit without recovery. Unless someone wants to be bold and flash a ROM via fastboot lol

    Actually from what I've read in the XDA thread it comes with TWRP.

    So yeah, we have recovery as well.

    I've had a few issues with the email client -- but mainly my gripe is that it just seems to require too many taps. I too would love a imap client -- one that supports IDLE!
    You would have to dual boot windows 7.
    Heimdall is the alternative to Odin but they have not fixed the drivers to work with jelly bean. I think the "casual" application will work on mac because it is java based but unless you can use odin that doesn't help you

    I may get flamed for saying this, but for once, this stock software does everything I need and then some. I will continue to hack up my nexus and sgs3, but this baby is staying secure.

    I need some help, I'm having a serious issue. I unlocked the bootloader just fine on my Note 2, for some reason I decided it would be a good idea to try and go back to recovery mode to put BeansBuild4 on it which now leaves my note 2 stuck on the "Note 2" boot screen. I can get into Odin mode but not recovery mode. I'm in dire straights, please help!

    You're sure you unlocked? At the end of unlocking did you get the TWRP screen?
    To get into recovery hold volume up + power+ home.
    I read some people were having issues using the volume up button. I don't know if that was resolved.

    Yes it is unlocked, I did get to the TWRP screen and I can't get into recovery . I tried getting back to the TWRP screen using the same method to put BeansBuild4 on it and evidently I shouldn't have.

    I reviewed that and I could use it if I could get into recovery mode (or whatever Volume up+Power+Home is referred to). If I were to use Odin to put a stock rom on it could that make my phone operational?
