Default How to root T889 +Counter reset + Unroot+ Stock firmware

Rooting Indtruction
SINCE SUPERSU.ZIP DOES NOT WORK ON ALL DEVIVES THE BEST OPTION TO ROOT RIGHT NOW :
1ST: ROOT BY OPTION 2
2ND : FLASH CUSTOM CWM VIA PC ODIN OR MOBILE ODIN ( PLAY STORE )

Option 1: CWM + SuperSU .
1. download cwm6-recovery-n7100-121014.tar : http://www.mediafire.com/?mouxvj4og7azcow
OR Download cwm recovery V6.0.2.5 .tar: http://www.mediafire.com/?oyv15gidjxd6c23 . Big thank to Dr.Ketan&KoushThis CWM will not support EXFAT Card
2.download CWM SUPERSU V0.99 installable ZIP: I took off download link until further notice. From Chainfire " SUPERSU. ZIP does not work on all devices, needs fix. Note that if you are already rooted, installing through Market is by far the easiest way to install SuperSU !". More infor here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053
3.Download PC Odin : http://d-h.st/SdH
4.Open Odin and select PDA tab
5.Point to extracted file cwm6-recovery-n7100-121014.tar
6.Now switch off device and reboot in download modeby:
press Vol down + Home +Power, And then, press Volume UP button in Warning Page to enter the Download Mode
7.Connect device to PC and wait till device successfully added to com port (it will turn light blue)
8.Hit ‘Start’ to flash
9.Once it flashed successfully, you can see 'PASS' in table above the ID :COM, you can disconnect device from PC
10.Now reboot into CWM by :Switch off device and press Vol Up + Home +Power hold about 5 second
11.Install SuperSu.
12.Reboot.Done

Option 2 : Only Root

Download this CF Auto Root from here http://download.chainfire.eu/264/CF-...3g-gtn7100.zip
and extract it to .tar
Procedure :
1.Open Odin and select PDA tab
2.Point to extracted file CF-Auto-Root-SGN2.tar
3.Now switch off device and reboot in download mode
press Vol down + Home +Power, And then, press Volume UP button in Warning Page to enter the Download Mode
4.Connect device to PC and wait till device successfully added to com port (it will turn light blue)
5.Hit ‘Start’ to flash
6.Once it flashed successfully, you can see 'PASS' in table above the ID :COM, you can disconnect device from PC
7.Reboot device and you will have superSU in application drawer.

Option 3 : Root with Exynos Abuse Apk

3.Root with apk No counter reset needs, Easiest - Credit goes to Chainfire, alephzain

1.Download latest from chainfire's here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...26&postcount=1
2.Install application as routine apk installation and open it.
3.Open Exynos Abuse application from App drawer
4. Select Root Device
6.Now your device is rooted, for security purpose you can disable Exploit.
( Note : This may break camera, but unchecking disable exploit make it working again )
7. Open SuperSU & Update binary.

How to unroot Exploit :

Open Exynos Abuse app, uncheck disable explot & Disable Exploit on boot then select Unroot device
Restart device and wait for 10 min. and then you can check status.

Since Chainfire support our note now . if you want reset counter for warranty then download TRIANGLE AWAY from play store which will do the job.Still dont know what is it, go here for more infor http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1494114.

If you want to unroot for some reason :

From stock rom and root by Chainfire method all you need to do : Triangle Away app ,SuperSU / setting/ full unroot. Reboot into Recovery / Factory reset.

From custom rom : reflash stock image via Odin .reroot by CF auto root,reset counter with Triangle Away App,SuperSU/Setting/Full unroot . Recovery / Factory reset.
Can find stock firmware from here http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/ search for T889
Stock T889UVALJ1 & T889UVALK8 (Post 51) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969551 ( Thank , TeshXX)
Stock + root http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1975560 ( Thank , Mr.Robinson )

How to flash rom via Odin :

Make sure you have installed Kies OR Samsung USB driver
Open up the ODIN
1. Enable the check mark by click on the following options(default Option)
- Auto Reboot, and F. Reset Time
- Download TAR ROM
- Check PDA, and point to TAR ROM file
2. Now switch off device and Enter into Download Mode
- Enter into Download Mode by pressing Volume Down button, Home Key and
Power Button simultaneously. And then, press Volume UP button in Warning Page to enter the Download Mode.
3. Connect the device to PC via Data Cable.
Make sure that the one of communication port [ID:COM] box is highlighted in
light blue. The device is now connected with the PC and ready to download the
binary file into the device.
4. Start downloading binary file into the device by clicking Start Button on the screen.
the green colored "PASS!" sign will appear on the upper-left box if the binary file
has been successfully downloaded into the device.
5. Disconnect the device from the Data cable.
6.Done

Common question about reseting counter
I have reset counter but system status still 'custom'
You should have stock recovery (Opton 2)
If you already have stock recovery(CF Auto root) then reset counter first
then wipe cache + wipe data(factory reset) + re wipe cache
You should now have system status 'official'
I have rest counter but after reboot again it goes to 1
This happen if you have rooted with CUSTOM RECOVERY(Opton 1)
This is neither error of recovery nor triangle away. This happens due to new bootloader which have auto checksum for recovery, when you reboot to custom recovery count will raise.
To prevent this you need to have play version of Triangle away, and you should check (enable) 'Auto reset at boot'. Again this feature depends on kernel/recovery is supported or no

Thank you.
Weird, I guess the development forums for 150 other phones must be wrong then. Their moderators must be slacking.

p.s.-no root, no development.
p.s.s-you must be a toolkit user

Yeah, the reason I put my thread in origin dev because i seen every forum do the same ,all I do is try to help but I guest moderator want to keep dev thread at NEVER so let it be. Toolkit is good but complicated if you choose wrong option then will be problem thats why I come up with this solution which easy to root and with out any issue .
