Root Galaxy Note 8.0 N5110 on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 ZTBMH1 Official Firmware
In case you’ve landed ZTBMH1 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (Chinese version) on your Samsung’s Galaxy Note N5110 WiFi and you now look forward to root it, you should rely on our guide for a walk-through.
This tutorial is also good to follow in case you own a rooted Galaxy Note N5110 that has lost its warranty after you’ve upgraded it and you want this feature back on it.
If you are new to all of this stuff and don’t know why you should root your handset in the first place, here are some of the advantages of this process: you will get to install and use custom ROMs and root-only apps, you will be able to customize the tablet with the help of many options + features, the performance of the device will become better and so on.
The pros we have just mentioned above are all great and such, but in order to experience them you will need to prepare your device first. And what better tools than some pre-requisites? Here they are:
- create backups (we’d like for you to make a NANDroid backup, too, apart from the regular one);
- download CF-Auto-Root archive (file name: N5110ZTBMH1_N5110ZZTBMH1_BRI.zip) and Odin tool on your PC;
- charge the tablet’s battery;
- install USB drivers for this model on your laptop;
- enable USB Debugging;
- use the Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5110 instead of a completely different model.
Now head over to the steps below. Each of them has the role of bringing your device closer to a rooting state.
- Once the desktop of your notebook has the two files we told you to download on it, you should next do this: power the handset off.
- Now boot your tablet into Download Mode by pressing + holding, at the same time, Volume Down, Home and Power.
- In the next few seconds you should see the display of your N5110 with the Android logo on it; so press Power to complete this task of entering your tablet into Download Mode. Then open, on the notebook, the Odin.
- Wait for this to be launched, then be sure to connect the Note 8.0 N5110 to the laptop and afterwards wait for a confirmation of this; which will arrive once you spot “Added!!” on the screen along with a yellow ID:COM box port number (if the plugging fails, you need to either re-install the USB drivers or employ a different USB port).
- Now make sure you do the following: click on PDA. Follow this task with another one: opt for the CF-Auto-Root-kona3g-kona3gxx-gtn5100.tar.md5 and then select F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot. Tap “START“.
- Wait for the rooting firmware to begin its flashing on your device, then wait again for the tablet to enter a rebooting phase and then greet you with its home screen. The minute that happens, you can disconnect the devices from one another and then find the rooting package in the device’s “About Phone“.
But if the file is not there, you should redo the guide in its entirety until the tablet is really rooted on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 ZTBMH1 official firmware.
Should you not have trouble with the procedure we discussed in today’s post, then make sure you try out all the advantages we told you about in our tutorial.
