How to root T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 N900T

Galaxy Note 3 N900T, the version which you can opt for if you use T-Mobile, is ready for a revolution. Which comes in the form of a rooting procedure.

We have tailored our guide for this smartphone alone. Make sure you don’t own a different model, because our rooting tutorial will not work on it.

Requirements

In preparation of the actual rooting process, mind the following requirements:

  • charge your phone’s battery;
  • create backups using this guide, so that no important data gets lost at the end of the guide;
  • your notebook or PC must run Windows;
  • turn off every program that protects your laptop or comp against dangerous viruses and the like;
  • on your handset make sure you enable that option called USB Debugging.Galaxy-Note-3-N900T

Instructions

  1. After you’ve paid attention to the pre-requisites, you need to begin our guide with these actions: download Samsung KIES along with Odin tool v3.07 and also Root Package (file name: CF-Auto-Root-hltetmo-hltetmo-smn900t.zip) on your laptop. Then don’t forget to extract the latter two packages on your laptop’s desktop.
  2. After you are done with the download of the Samsung KIES, you have to find USB drivers for your handset and download them on your PC.
  3. Now open the Odin on the notebook and follow that up with another action: power the N900T off. Then take into account these tasks: enter the device in Download Mode by pressing and holding Volume Down + Power + Home together.
  4. After that, continue by plugging the Galaxy Note 3 to your notebook and wait for a bit; the Odin will look for the phone and, when it’s found it, it should show “Added!!” together with a yellow ID:COM box port (or blue). But should the devices miss a connection between one another: flash, again, the USB drivers or try with a different USB port.
  5. Choose, from the Odin, “PDA” and then select the required Root .zip archive from where it is. After you tap START, the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900T is going to enter the most wanted rooted stage.
  6. The signal that will let you know if the device is rooted or not will be a green ID:COM box port and PASS on the screen. Unplug the devices from each other. Then restart the phone. You can now start to look for various custom ROMs, root-only apps and such to enjoy on your phone.

Once the phone has acquired a rooted state, its warranty will be lost. In order to have it back on the handset: upgrade your phone to an OTA release or downgrade the device to stock Android JB version.

IMPORTANT: In case your handset goes into boot loop, you should make sure you enter it, first, in Recovery Mode, then, from this mode, opt for Factory Reset/Wipe Data and then select Wipe Cache Partition; from the Recovery Menu you should now choose the option dedicated to system rebooting.

If you happen to notice a frozen Odin, you should remedy the situation by first closing it, then unplugging the smartphone from your notebook, force restarting the Galaxy Note 3 N900T, flashing the USB drivers once more and then redoing the guide from this step onward. That’s that. The T-Mobile handset is now free of problems.
