    After some trial & error, root has been obtained for the VZW Galaxy Note 2 - this is just root, the bootloader is still locked...

    This is a copy / paste from droidstyle's post on the XDA Forums ( [GUIDE][VZW Edition]How to Root the VZW Galaxy Note II and more! - xda-developers )...

    Standard Disclaimer Applies....DroidForums.net, XDADevelopers, nor anyone associated with this method is responsible for any issues that might arise from this method - you are using at your own risk and assuming the liability & that you understand what you are doing.

    Section 1: How to Root Stock JellyBean with Odin - VZW Edition only!


    Step 1: Download and install these files to your pc:
    Odin- http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1340993443

    Step 2: Download one of the rooted stock odin images below to your pc:
    Root66_VZW_stock_VRLJB- Dev-Host - root66_VZW_stock_system.7z - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service

    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!

    *Everything is working folks!! We now have a solid root method!!!

    Credit goes to MrRobinson and Beanstown101!!

    Just wanted to add that Busybox needs to be downloaded separately. I just rooted my Note 2 this morning. Everything is A-OK!

    Yup method is not hard ...the most common issue seems to be drivers installing properly from my seeing issues on different forums ..once rooted the first thing I would do is make a backup of stock ..the part you saw at the end was TWRP which is the recovery system it installed ..this is where we can make and restore backups ..flash custom Roms...there is a few twrp videos floating around as well for familiarity ..
    Keep us posted and we are here for help along the way
