I have VooDoo OTA Root keeper installed. Does anyone know if this works? I planned on trying it then manually re-rooting if need be.
Thanks

Thumbs up Help with rooting 4.1.2

Hello Friend,

I am very grateful for all your videos and they are easy to use .
I rooted my Samsung Galaxy note 2 using your videos and I am happy with it but now
4.1.2 is out .Sprint sends me the update and I tried to update after the reboot ,it comes back into
custom recovery and I HAVE no idea what to do after that.
I already back up the phone so what are your suggestions .
Is there way to install 4.1.2 and still be rooted or should I follow the video with stock
recovery and if I do that will I loose my contacts .
I am ready to use those new features on the new ,there many more options .

Anyway thanks for your hard work and dedication .

Don't worry about losing your contacts as they are/should be backed up to Google. Using your PC browser, check GMail and from there look at your contacts. As long as they are there, and they will be, once you sync your phone, they will all be back.

Did you root with option 2 or 3? Sounds like 3...

I hope someone can help with this. I bought the phone yesterday and today (after reading this thread) updated the OTA. Then tried the method in the video to root with custom recovery. Well, the custom recovery flashed, but I still did no have root access and Superuser was not installed on phone. I tried to then unroot (following the video) and odin failed and now my phone is stuck on screen saying firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again. I downloaded Kies and I can't get into emergency recovery mode without a code. Apparently if the update was not done in Kies, you cannot enter recovery.... can anyone help with this???
I am sure I did sonething wrong and am not blaming the devs. In fact I donated money to the developer if the toolkit. Threw me iff at first because it was not in US $..lol.
