i understood this
Note that, this will downgrade your ROM to KJ1, after that you can update it.

- Make sure your SGN is NOT connected to your computer
- Reboot your SGN into "download mode" (Vol Down + Home + Power)
- Start ODIN
- Click the PDA button, and select the "SGN_XX_OXA_KJ1_FACTORYFS.tar" file
- Connect the SGN to your computer
- Make sure "repartition" is NOT checked
- Click the START button
- Wait for the phone to reboot TWICE
- Done.

This is the rooting process

What is next then to install that theme??

For DDLB2 kernel you have to downgrade to directly rootable like KL3 or KJ1. KJ1 is rooted. In Dr.Ketan's guide he has clearly given instructions only for updating to STOCK ROM[. He has also mentioned that for installing a custom ROM or theme you will have to refer to the install instructions provided by the dev of the ROM or theme.

Cheers,
Kaushik

You right dr.ketan. After joining the files it gave WinRARZip archieve file. Again extracting this file, gave TAR file(WinRAR archieve). This I think should not be extracted. (when extracted on window PC gave img file). Thanks for reply and guidance.

Clarification needed
First of all i would like to thank Dr.Ketan for explaining how to root in detail.
I just have a small question, once i have downgraded LB2 to KJ1 which of-course is already rooted to which version should i update ROM?
I think updating it back to LB2 will make it unrooted again right???

You can update to lb2 or any other latest rom. But you hav to use cwm/mobile odin pro to keep root intact.

Here's step by step guide to Root Galaxy Note on DDLB2 kernel version.

Found out by tshrjain ((That's Me)) :P

Instructions for windows users only. Linux and mac need to figure out themselves.

Thanks to xda-developers.com, rootgalaxynote.com and downloadandroidrom.com

-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

Please find the attached txt file for instructions.

I wanted post here, but apparently new users are not allowed to post outside links which are needed to download 2 files.

-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

I wanted to root my phone to install "AdFree Android" from the market. It blocks all the ads from free apps. Saving a lot of network data.

Hope this helps.

In case of any problems, just install the stock rom from here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1424997

Using step by Step instructions given on that page itself.

Please do click "thanks" if I could be of help.

Dear Dr Ketan

Could you please give me instructions as to how to root G-Note Stock 2.3.6 (Indian Version DDLC1).
Thank you in advance.
After updating or downgrading is it always necessary to update Kernel.
