A wonderfull day to all. I've been a member here wayback long ago. I know for myself that I don't contribute here a lot. It's because I'm not a very techie person.
But when my mom gave me her old Galaxy Note 2 and try to lurk around here about this phone. I've read a lot of good things about this phone and it's capabilities. Now I'm really getting interested about some things. But almost all of those Applications, Roms, Custom Roms, Recoveries, and Kernels reqiure root access, which my phone doesn't have. Hehehe. I tried to read a lot of post about rooting, but there's a lot of things and terms that confuses me, like MJ5, MK9, Baseband, Modem, Knox enabled, etc. I know that these things need to be considered when rooting. And I know that if I messed things up, my phone wil turn into an expensive paper weight. Hehehe.
The first thing I want to try is to root my phone, and try installing and uninstall system apps and enjoy rooted capabilities. So I'm hoping for somebody that can guide me how can I root this Model and Version. Hoping for your kind consideration guys. As I'm new about this rooting things.
AFAIK the Android version of this phone is previously 4.1.2 out from the box (not sure though). Then my mom got it updated to 4.3 and noticed that "Knox" is already in the app drawer. But if i open Knox it says: "You need to download and install this app. Downloading via mobile networks may result in additional charges depending on your payment plan." and there's an "Install" button that can be press. Do I need this app or do I need to install this? Is it safe? The phone doesn't have warrranty anymore. And I'm planning to Root, Install Custom Recovery, and Custom ROM in the futere. But I want to do it gradually.
Thank you very much guys for helping people like me.
