Review the risks:
- This procedure to root your phone is not an official one, so if you decide to apply it for your Galaxy Note 2 you’ll lose the official warranty phone;
- There is always a high risk involved in getting your handset bricked, so be careful! We cannot be held liable for any damage caused to your device;
- This root operation can be applied only on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 model, so it’s not the ideal time to be brave and dare for more; we can tell you from the start that it doesn’t work on any other device, so check model number of the device by going to Settings>> About phone>> Model number;
- Any damage caused to your handset is your responsibility; we can only tell you to follow all these procedures and steps carefully in order to avoid breaking your handset. However, if this happens, Androidflagship.com has nothing to do with it!
- Start by backing up your important data that you might need after you finish this procedure. Make a backup as long as you never know when anything might go wrong. We know that you probably are comfortable with the current state of your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100, so a backup option like Nandroid is recommended; if something goes wrong, you can easily restore your data as no problem has ever happened;
- Enable USB Debugging mode (for that, you must go to Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging);
- You will have to connect your Galaxy Note 2 with the computer. Verify if you have installed the USB drivers for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 properly and don’t forget to disable the security protection on your laptop that might interfere with this root operation;
- Find Galaxy’s Note 2 original USB cable; you are going to use it later;
- Is your handset charged up to at least 70% battery level? If it goes off during the procedure of rooting, the phone might get bricked or permanently damaged. You don’t want that, right? So, have some patience and charge it properly.
