A few weeks ago the dev community of the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 was in an uproar. Verizon decided to unleash an update that patched the unlock bootloader exploit! This was really no surprise to anyone. Verizon has been known to sneak in patches to kill Root, and unlocked bootloaders in the past. Known developer "Adam Outler" the guy who unlocked the Note2 initially announced that the update should not be accepted because it would lock down the bootloader. He also let everyone know that he along side developer "Ralekdev" were hard at work to regain unlocked bootloader status. Just a few days after the OTA was released the new CasualRoot was released! It is now safe to accept the OTA update to VRALL4. You can find instructions on Unlocking the Bootloader, Rooting, and installing TWRP Recovery at the source link below. The method is easier than ever. It does require that you have java installed if on windows.
