There is a quicker method to removing the battery! When you first Root using Odin, AS SOON as PASS! appears in the blue box, press volume up and down at the same time without pressing power. You will go into CWM ! But you still need to do the rest of the steps. This just eliminates the step where you have to remove the battery and boot using power + volume up and down. Enjoy! + repp!

Hi, I failed in step 10 to install superuser ZIP as I put the file in the wrong location. Now when I try to put the phone into downloading mode it won't go into CWM but stock recovery mode (3e). Is there any way for me to go back to step 9 and install superuser ZIP again?

Thanks for any help.

You failed way before step 10. If you are getting stock recovery then you are failing in the steps before. Start over.

This works. Excellent.

I followed the AT&T rooting procedure which always put in me into the Andrioid Recovery Mode, then I came across this post and followed the steps ans it works.

Just make sure when using the ES file exploerer to rename the script, make sure your go to setting first, then scroll down and check all the boxes in the root setting section, or else you don't have access to system files.

I also download he Root Checker and Rom Manager from Play store. Root Check can verify if you have root access and Rom Manger can hrlp you boot into CMW recoverary esaily.

Question
I upgraded my i717r (Rogers version) to JB today. So, I lost my root as expected. I re-do this procedure again and everything went smoothly, no error. But when I verify it with Root Checker, it said I have no root access.

Anybody has this problem? Might be this procedure doesn't work anymore on JB.

Procedure is exactly the same as ICS. And since you updated via Odin or kies then there should be no script to stop the installation of the custom recovery. What method did you use? It is recommended to use the new version 3 Odin.

I use the same procedure outlined in the first post. I will try to use the odin3 when I get back home tonight. Hope it will work.

Thanks for the hints.

I tried it again with Odin3 v3.04. It has the same problem. Odin went thru successfully, Both CMW and superuser are installed but still no root access.

Strange...any other suggestion. By the way, I upgraded my note thru Kies yesterday,

Anyone has the same problem as me. I tried both Odin 3 v1.85 and Odin 3 v.3.07 and they both don't work.

Any other suggestion?
