[Q] Wi-fi Note 8.0 (GT-N5110) - root using CF-Auto-Root OR Toolkit? Any issue?
I just got the Wi-fi version of the Note 8.0 (GT-N5110). I want to root it so I can run rooted apps (Titanium Backup, Helium, etc.) and not for installing custom-ROM.
One important thing I want to ensure is that when Samsung releases the OFFICIAL 4.2.2, I can still update it via Kies. I had the Galaxy Note 1 and I rooted it (forgot what I used to root) and when Samsung released the official Jelly Bean, I cannot upgrade via Kies, had to do Odin.
I see that there are 2 way of doing the root and I am wondering which one have LESS issue?
I. CF-Auto-Root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1980683
- Created by ChainFire (creator of SuperSU?)
- WILL increase the flash counter (can be fixed with Triangle Away, but not sure if this works with Note 8.0)
II. Galaxy Note 8.0 Toolkit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2251033
- I am still doing research, but it seems some people have issues based on the thread?
