    Verizon Galaxy Note II Now Has Root

    The Verizon Galaxy Note II now has root, thanks to some folks over at XDA. It looks like it's a fairly easy and straightforward affair, using ODIN. As always, be careful with the process and follow the instructions carefully. It's important to note that there are still some bugs to be worked out with this one, and of course, the phone is still locked. Still, those details will likely be hammered out fairly soon. Here's a quote with the instructions below. Be sure to hit up the source link for additional details and downloads.

    Section 1: How to Root/ Return to stock Stock 4.1.1 JellyBean with Odin

    Step 1: Download and install these files to your pc:

    Odin- http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1340993443
    Samsung driver- TinyW.in - #TeamWin URL Shortener worry about the link saying GSIII, it still works fine on the GN2.)

    Step 2: Download one of the rooted stock odin images below to your pc:

    Root66_VZW_stock_VRLAJB 4.1.1- Dev-Host - - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service be unzipped to extract the .tar file. also do not worry about the md5 extension)
    mirror- root66_VZW_stock_system.7z ::. | by mrRobinson for Galaxy Note 2

    Step 3: Power device off, hold the volume down/home/power keys until you see a yellow triangle, then press the volume up key to access "odin or download mode".

    Step 4: Open odin and connect the oem usb cable from pc to device. Adb driver should automatically install(atleast it did for me on windows 7). There should be a "comport number" in upper left hand corner of odin indicating communication between the pc & device.

    Step 5: Uncheck Auto reboot

    Step 6: Click on the PDA function of odin. Select the rooted system.img you downloaded in step 2, then select start. This operation should take less than 8 minutes before odin will say pass/reset.

    Step 7: Pull and reinstall battery.

    Step 8: Press and hold the volume up/home/power buttons until you see a green android. You should boot into ASR(Android Stock Recovery)

    Step 9: Wipe cache.(If you experience errors, boot back into ASR and wipe data.)

    Step 10 reboot!

    **This will not wipe data/factory reset unless you chose to do so after you flash the new image**
    (It is recommended to wipe data in ASR if you experience problems after the install)

    **This is a fully working root method, everything works. All issues reported early in the thread have been fixed**

    Credit goes to MrRobinson and Beanstown101!!


    How to unroot 4.1.1 JellyBean

    1. There is no stock image released as of 12/3/12. However the root image MrRobinson created, for all intents and purposes, is stock.

    2. There are two additional files, /system/xbin/su and /system/app/Superuser.apk.

    3. If you remove those two files with a app such as filemanager you are back to unrooted stock.

    I love root access, no question, but I'll be waiting for a custom recovery before tampering.
