  2. Step two: this file will then open and you will have to use PDA for the next action, which sounds like this: choose Stock Firmware and check, in Odin, these boxes: F. Reset Time along with Auto Reboot. If some other boxes are checked, perform the opposite of that and uncheck the box whose name is Repartition.
  3. Step three will tell you to switch the Galaxy Note 2 off and see to it that the device gets rebooted into a mode labeled Download. For people who don’t know how to do the latter: select and keep selected at the same time the buttons labelled Home, Volume Down and Power; but not at different times, you need to press and hold them simultaneously.
  4. Step number four has to be composed of these actions: plug the phone to the laptop and then click on Start.
  5. Do something else while the flashing is underway. After it’s done, you’ll see the Galaxy Note SPH-L900 rebooting. With the end of the rebooting comes the realization that the smartphone has officially been unrooted.
