Is there a way to root the Note on GB without rolling back?

Tip us?

Go to Chainfire's kernel thread and download CF-Root LA6. Extract the tar file, and flash it using Mobile Odin.
That way you don't get the triangle, and don't trigger the binary counter.
Do you still get the triangle with the cf kernel? No one responded for a long time last night so I flashed the Abyss 4.2 kernel, but I'll switch to cf kernel if it's better.

No. You do not trip the flash counter when you use MobileODIN..... ever. And if you want to stay as stock as possible, use CF-Root.

Thanks. Are there any specific benefits of the cf kernel over the abyss kernel?

I followed the instructions on the Galaxy Note Root website then the triangle was annoying me so I used Triangle away to get rid of it.

It seemed by far the easiest way after having read loads of different ways of doing it.

No specific benefit, it all comes down to user preference.
I never had much luck when testing Abyss, it kept draining my battery.
However, many users like it and report great battery life. Also, Abyss
can be overclocked.
CF-Root is closest to stock of all kernels. It's stable, just a tad slower
and easied on the battery.

Sorry for the delay. Chas is right. There's no specific benefit to using CF-Root. However, CF-Root is a completely stock kernel with only root and SuperSU added. So technically, it's just as stable as an unrooted stock kernel. When compared to elaborate kernels with overclocking, undervolting, boot scripts, added governors, etc., CF-Root can actually be a significantly more stable option for those in need of a rooted kernel. In addition to CF-Root, there are also kernels based on CF-Root. For example, although built from source instead of being a modified stock kernel, the new Franco kernel is largely based on CF-Root 5.3. As a matter of fact, they are so similar that even Chainfire's own CWM Manager app detects the new Franco kernel as CF-Root 5.3.

So you see, your options are vast. You're not limited to Abyss & CF-Root, but CF-Root is one of the best options available.

I am still confused whether the cf root causes the yellow triangle or not, as someone said in this thread that the triangleaway app removes the binary count, but I didn't get an impression the app removes the triangle, too.
Isn't there anyway I can flash the cf root kernel and not have the triangle and the increased binary count?
