Default Rooting Note 3

So we don't have a recovery yet right? As in we can't flash rims like other phones ..?

I don't get the OPS question. ROOTING and putting on ROMS or flashing is two different things.

Yes you can ROOT. Just Google Kingo Root. many have used it even on MJ5 and it works great.

No you cannot flash ROMS. You can use Safe Strap which fakes a flash by putting the ROM on your internal memory and then faking the boot system into using that ROM. You can actually put several ROMS on your phone at one time with this method and choose which to use at boot.

The draw back is that each ROM consumes a large portion of your internal RAM.

Or use the method that hasn't been banned here, by evilpotatoman.

Skip step 3 if you already took the MJ5 OTA update and are running stock MJ5. Does not trip Knox if done properly. No questionable EXEs like kingo.

We do have a working recovery and safestrap also lets you flash on the system partition. It also uses no internal memory as long as you flash the rom to the "stock" slot.

So in other words we don't have regular recoveries like TWRP... stupid question like why can't we flash using regular methods?

Does this have a locked bootloader?

Flash over whatever you want from here:

But you WILL trip knox and void your warranty. That's what everyone is trying to avoid with other methods.

Edit: actually I think I interpreted that post wrong. Looks like it's only for the ROM parts.

Actually just ignore that entirely. You can use other methods to downgrade that don't trip knox, so there really is no point to that old thread now, I think. Saw extracted bootloader and thought it might have done the trick. Nope.
