Alternative Root Method (OSX, Linux)
Mods -- Feel free to delete if it's a repost.
Quick note -- I take no responsibility for your device, if you choose to install CWM and root, this is your decision, use this at your own risk
After reading through a few posts and figuring out there is little support I could locate to Root using my macbook, thought I would jot down what I did to root my Wifi Note 8.0:
1 -- Download and install Heimdall:
2 -- Download & untar the CWM for my device pulled from here (you should end up with a recovery.img file when untarred):
4 -- Download Super SU Zip and push to device:
5 -- push (flash) CWM to your note using the command:
heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img
6 -- reboot into CWM using the vol+,pwr,home buttons.
7 -- flash the SuperSU zip.
8 -- reboot and enjoy!
