This is the Q&A thread for x-note. In the OP you will find all the links to download the ROM and make it compatible with tmobile. FYI the newest Civz-snapkat kernel is now 2.6 not 2.1 but you will need to Google it to find out exactly where to get the zip if you want the newer version of the kernel.

I don't have a specific link for some of my tutorial but A Google or youtube search should suffice. But I will give you the basic steps. That being said my way of rooting will trip Knox and more than likely void your warranty. For the programs I list just do a Google search and you should find them easy enough.

1. install Odin 3.09 or 3.07 to your computer
2. Flash your custom recovery (I prefer twrp) via Odin
3. Flash your custom ROM from your external sd card or, SuperSU if you only want to obtain root while staying on the stock ROM, from the recovery. (if you are not familiar with flashing roms let me know and I will give you the steps.)
After these steps your phone should be rooted.

Note: I found that after the 4.4 update when attempting to boot into recovery you have to let go of your buttons as soon as you see the blue words "recovery booting" or something like that at the top left of your screen.

Hey there, I just upgraded to 4.4.2 coming from 4.3 I had great battery life in 4.3 but when I switched over to 4.4.2 my batter life is terrible as well.. I am also rooted and have used app quarantine to freeze some apps to see if I can get some more battery life out of it and no luck. I did a straight Ota update by going to stock 4.3 then updating then rooting 4.4 the only thing I haven't done is a factory reset which will be my next step! :thumbup:

I have heard that after flashing official 4.4 you should factory reset to help the ROM settle and that should improve the battery life.

I didn't install any new apps. I just upgraded to 4.4.2 using OTA update couple of days back and since then the battery doesn't seem to last for more than 5-6 hours for the same usage that got me 8-10 hours or more before upgrading.

Hey guys, just switched over from Verizon and am looking for the best way to root. What are you guys using to root 4.42 stock and does it trip knox? Can't wait to get back on a rooted N3.
