I am so glad to find the process I need to achieve root on my i337 on nc1. I am a total noobie to "flashing" and such. Is there anywhere in these forums to find a step by step? I have read so much in the last 3 days my eyes may bleed. I know it's a lot to ask, but I would really like to be rooted.
You can not root on new so you have to Odin full NB1
Then downgrade to MK2 both in the following thread.
When it's done take battery out and boot into recovery, then factory reset.
Reboot root using safe root or any other method. Then install safe strap as described in the following thread
Once you are rooted you can install nc1 again the link is in the thread above. Also flash the kernel for nc1 also listed above.
