    Want to Root Note 2

    Hello Members

    I want to root my Note 2 SCH-i605

    I tried to do it using some old info from a YouTube video using Odin3 v 1.85 and root66_vzw_stock.system.tar.md5 and it failed.

    Pretty sure I bricked the phone. lol (Should have read some of the reviews first).

    I restored it to JB4.3 using Odin3 v3.07 and I605VRUEMJ9_I605VZWEMJ9_I605VRUEMJ9_HOME.tar.md5

    How do I find the correct tar file to root my phone and is there anything else I need to know for a successful root?

    I understand it is possible to unblock as well as root but I am pretty sure I just want to root it.

    Thank you for responding to my question. I followed your link and have reviewed the page. 2 things are bothering me.

    1. I checked the reported success list and found this (Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3). This is actually less information about the phone than was available on the video instructions which ended up with my phone bricked.

    2. At the top of the page it says, (ROOT] Saferoot: Root for VRUEMJ7, MK2, and Android 4.3). I guess the first group of letters is the baseband version/build number which on my phone is VRUEMJ9.

    Using Saferoot seems to be a bit more complicated than using Odin and I am not keen to attempt it unless I can be absolutely sure it will work.

    Hi Bd. Thank you again. I am not worried about the degree of difficulty or my ability to restore it if it does go pear shape and if nothing else comes up I will. I lost all my apps last time so I have to re-install them all. I had about 70 so its a bit of a headache. I am only reinstalling essential apps until I root then the first thing I will do is install a memory swapper app and Titanium.
