I am trying to root my Note 2, SCH-I605, 4.4.2, I605VRUFND7.
I have rooted Android and Apple devices in the past without trouble, but the issue I'm having with this Note 2 (as far as I can tell) is that I cannot get adb to see it. I have tried everything I can think of, as well as every guide I can find.
I'm still too new to link what I have tried, but I'll list a few.
GhettoRoot (also the GhettoRoot all-in-one from member Networking Pro)
I've updated to the latest version of Java
Installed the Java SDK
Installed Samsung Phone drivers
Installed Samsung Kies3
Installed the Android SDK (as well as updated to the latest platform-tools from the repository)
I've tried 3 different computers and two different Windows operating systems
I've tried 3 different USB cables (some third-party and the one that comes with the phone)
I've tried different USB ports on the different computers, including USB 2 and USB 3 ports
Different downloaded adb (from downloaded packages for example GhettoRoot and from the Android SDK)
SkipSoft Unified Android Toolkit
These are the things I can think of off the top of my head that I have tried. I really have put forth a lot of effort into solving this myself before I posted, but I'm just kind of at a loss now. I see where other people are posting success with what appears to be the same phone and version as I have, but I cannot figure out how they have done it. I think if I can just get adb to see my phone, then the rest will be easy.
Do anyone have any ideas or suggestions of something I may have missed?
Thank in advance!
