I'm new to the Verizon side of things as i use AT&T, but i got a note 2 from a friend of mine to give to my kids. So I'm trying to root it using this method being add he took the 4.4.2 ota. Is this method still working. I've tried multiple times with no success. I've tried all 4 of the downloads in the OP and still nothing. Or is there another way to root it by now. Any help would be great.
