To avoid any issue that may appear if you aren’t fully concentrated on this tutorial, we recommend you to follow every step we will add in a short while, as well as the pre-requisites that will come first. To shed some light on the tool we will use today: its name is CF-Root. The creator behind it is a member of XDA Developers forum, which is synonym for great tools. The CF-Root works with your phone’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as well as whatever future version Google will unveil in the future.

But it’s a long way to the future Android versions, so for now let’s see what the CF-Root can do for your Jelly Bean-running phone. For one, your device will deliver an enhanced performance, you will deal with root-only apps on a regular base, the battery is not going to die on you quickly and so on.

Requirements

You can have all of this and more only if you pay attention to our instructions. For now, though, make sure you pay attention to the requirements below:

  • make a battery to keep the data in your phone safe;
  • flash USB drivers for the Galaxy Note 3 SM-900T T-Mobile on your notebook from this page;
  • charge the battery unit of your phone;
  • download the CF-AutoRoot (file name: CF-Auto-Root-hltetmo-hltetmo-smn900t.zip) and then Odin tool v3.07.exe from here on your laptop;
  • enable the option called USB Debugging by opening “Settings” on your smartphone, selecting “Developer options” and then selecting the option we recommended you to turn on.Galaxy-Note-3-N900T

Instructions

Here is the part where we tell you how to land your 900T in the rooted state.

  1. Start the tutorial with this first task: unzip the Odin archive and the CF-AutoRoot, as well. You will then have to power your smartphone off and boot it, afterwards, in Download Mode like this: press and hold, at the same time, Volume Down + Home + Power, stop when the Android icon appears and then press Volume Up.
  2. The Odin will now take center stage, because you will need to open it as Admin on your notebook, then be sure to plug the handset to your other device.
  3. Odin will then tell you if a connection has happened by displaying an “Added!!” message along with an ID:COM box whose main color should be yellow. Use another USB port if the connection isn’t established; or flash, again, the USB drivers.
  4. We now have these instructions for you to follow: tap, while in the Odin tool, the button called “PDA”, then opt for the …tar.md5 file and choose the boxes labelled F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot.
  5. In case a box called Repartition is checked by default, uncheck it, then tap, while still in Odin, the key called “Start”. After the rooting file is flashed on your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3, you should wait for the latter to reboot and then display this message in green: “Pass”.
  6. Once you are shown these signs, you need to unplug the handset from your notebook, since the device has just been rooted successfully. If you happen to be unsure of the rooting, you can go to Google Play store and download Root Checker directly from there.

If you’ve just seen confirmation that the phone is really rooted, there’s no stopping you now from going through all the advantages of owning a rooted Galaxy Note 3 SM-900T!
