This might be the stupidest question I've asked but: I am about to root my Note 10, I've made a backup. But does rooting reset everything? Like would I have to download all my apps again? Set my wallpapers and change my settings and all that? I am looking at
CF-AUTO Root
By Chainfire
Ported To the Note 10.1 (2014 edition) By:@BeansTown106

And in the steps it mentions loading roms, I do not really care for roms, just the rooting ability. So am I starting over or does it just grant the root ability?

Thanks!

Whatever device you root, it doesn't reset nothing at all. Just unlocks the security privileges and makes you the administrator. When flashing roms then there yes you lose all your apps only but the rest things personally stay except apps
