Instructions

  1. The time is now ripe for the steps that will root your phone. Begin by reading these instructions: after you download Odin tool v3.07 on your PC from this address, you should unzip it along with the CF-Auto-Root.
  2. Then care care of these guidelines: switch the phone off and enter it in Download Mode; the booting is done by applying the next steps: press and hold Volume Down + Home + Power at the same time.
  3. At the end of the booting, you should open the Odin on the laptop and then proceed to this operation: plug the smartphone to the notebook.
  4. Once the Odin finds your handset, the plugging between your two devices will have happened. If not, get the USB drivers and flash them another time or instead use a different USB port.
  5. Tap on “PDA” after the plugging is done, then locate the CF-Auto-Root-tolte-toltexx-gtn7105.tar.md5, launch the latter in Odin and then deselect Repartition should it be already checked. Then leave the default settings as they are and after that tap “START” to begin with the rooting of the phone.
  6. The rooting is a process that will take little until it’s done. When you notice the end of the process, you should see a restart of the phone. So make sure to disconnect the devices from each other as soon as the handset displays a boot animation on it.
  7. When the phablet enters Normal Mode, you will have to launch Google Play, look for Root Checker app and flash it on the smartphone. With the aid of this tool you will know if the rooting on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 XXDMF2 firmware really did happen or not.

When you are made sure of the state your device is in in, and it’s rooted, then you will get free hand to appeal to all the incentives a rooting means. Like the opportunity to install custom ROMs, tweaks, root-only apps and the like. If you’ve heard of custom recovery images, you can get one on your device by first looking for TWRP or for CWM Recovery and installing one of them on the phone.

And that concludes our rooting tutorial for today. Hope you’ll have great fun with your freshly rooted Galaxy Note 2 LTE!
