Hi! I just want to root my Note 2 without using Odin. I am having difficulties in connecting my phone to a USB connector, so I don't want to take any chances. All of the instructions in the Internet say that I need to use Odin to either flash CF- Auto Root or flash Philz Recovery first before I use the SuperSU zip file to flash it on my device. If I flash the SuperSU zip file without installing Philz recovery first, would it brick my device?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

You cannot flash any zip file via stock recovery,hence you need to flash custom recovery first to be able to flash SuperSU and to flash custom recovery you need to either flash it via odin or terminal emulator.In order to flash via terminal emulator you need to flash cf auto root via odin first. To sum it up you need Odin either ways to root your phone .

If you have correctly installed the Samsung drivers and tried different USB ports and using stock samsung cable Odin should recognize your phone.Uninstall the drivers and re install them from scratch.

Don't root without Odin. Or you will get into problem. Try another computer or another cable. My laptop does not recognise my note 2. I use my friend's. Njoy 4.4.2 till u find above solutions. I have successfully rooted 4.4.2 without any problem.

Hi...

I have GT-N7100 ( Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ) 4.4.2 KitKat ! I recently tried to root my device with Odin odin3 v1.85 ( cwm6-root-note2 ) and got the pass.

I am not able to use SU ( Which was already pre-installed by me before rooting from play store ) Also it give the message "There is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it".

I cannot also go to CWM Recovery mode by Pressing Vol Up + Home Button + Power Button as screen go mad and switch it off, Then I need to start it again to use my phone normally.

I have also installed an app from Play Store named Root Checker which verify if phone is rooted or not and it say "Root Access is not properly configured or was not granted".

Thanks to god my phone is still working but I still wish to Root My phone again with correct process !
Q. Can I still Re-Root My phone ? If Yes, Then please guide me through latest correct process with files.
Q. I wish to root and install CWM Recovery again ( Which I tried before which has not properly configured )
Thanks

Hi Sir,

I would like to say THANKS A TON for your precious time and for your quick response to my query !

EVERYTHING WORKS !!! Finally my phone has got root access !

Also a Big thanks to Mr. Smeet Somaiya for such a wonderfull and easy thread to follow to gain root access.

Its my first step towards getting into developing Android and I love it to the core to learn and explore more.

At last I wish to know if I am allowed to contact you in near future to seek help ?

God bless you....Have a nice week ahead !!

Cheers !!!!
