Default [Q] Whats the latest way to root?

Before you jump to conclusions.
1. I have been rooting for a long time, I am not new to this.
2. I have searched the forum and all the info I found including mkskips way to root using galaxy toolkit is outdated. Infact I downloaded GTK from skip's site and it doesnt even list 4.1.2 MC2 version on it. It lists MA7.
3. I looked up kingo app but it doesnt mention sprint note 2.

So lets cut to the chase and please let me know what/how are you guys rooting nowadays?

Thanks I saw that but that doestn seem to install custom recovery like twrp or cwm. Earlier methods like one click root/ mkskips toolkit, all used to do it without needing odin. IF nothing else exists, I am fine trying the chainfire method.

I'm still using mkskips toolkit to root my Note 2. Was on MC2 a few days ago and rooted it just fine using the MA7 option which I believe is #92. Did it succesfully 2 times so I know for a fact that it works. Im back on MA7 now but its great to know I can continue using the toolkit if I ever go back to MC2.
