Tutorial [Q] Just Bought a Note 3

Hey there.. Just got a note 3 on 4.2.2 Is there a root method AT ALL? Or anything I can do? Or am I doomed to a truly stock device?

4.4.2 is currently doomed. There is a bounty out though for a full unlock and root.

No custom recoveries if the bootloader is locked.

Also please refrain from spamming and trying to sell anything on here like you just did. It's against the rules. Please re-read the rules before you get banned.

As far as I'm concerned this is a fantastic device. If you happen to be on 4.3, it's better now because you can root it. 4.4, you can't; not yet at least. Personally I'm got mine last month on 4.3, rooted it.
Either way, it's an outstanding device with a temporary hiccup. Every device has at least one.
