Good news for all the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users. Per reports, the newly unveiled Verizon-based Galaxy Note 2 now has a root solution that has been currently achieved by the Android Community.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon comes with a branded home button and has been available for purchase since Nov. 29, going for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement. Those who have already purchased the Verizon-backed device and are wondering if the phablet would get a root anytime soon, are in for a treat.
Android users who have been using a Samsung device for some time now, should be or are likely to be familiar with Odin. Interested users need to note that Odin will be required for this procedure, and those who are familiar shouldn’t have much problem handling the root themselves.
The new root is still in its developmental phase and, therefore, the new method could introduce a couple bugs, namely a broken signal indicator (while the data still works, the indicator remains broken), with some users stating that the phone isn't as smooth as it was with the factory image.
“It's also worth mentioning that this is just root, not a custom recovery or a full bootloader unlock. Chances are someone with access will show up with files needed to rectify this, but in the meantime know that you won't be able to flash ROMs and kernels until some work-arounds are figured out,” an Android Central report states.
Nonetheless, all kinds of problematic issues are currently being worked upon and a rooted factory image is expected to be available soon, and will keep everything as it should be while just adding files needed for root.
Users will just need to load and install the Odin and Samsung driver in their PCs, and even if the link says that it has been made for the Galaxy S3, that shouldn’t be a problem as it works on the Galaxy note 2 as well.
Following the source link given below users will get all the files needed (Odin, drivers, and images) to achieve root on the Verizon Galaxy Note 2. However, this will only grant the users root access. It is unlikely that users will encounter any problems with early bugs as well, as they have been sorted out and everything works as it should.
