Well I keep asking for someone with adb root access to do an adb shell mount and send me the mount points so I can verify the partitions but noone is getting back to me.

If you or anyone else can send me the mount points then please do so asap. The unroot zip file will remove the su and superuser files along with busybox and cwm manager (if present) but it needs the correct system partition value to mount the system and run the script.

Mark.

I will, I just need a stock recovery.img ! If you have it, please pass it to me (this goes for all US variants, btw).

I might get it to work as well if somebody can get me the stock kernel. Root first, then from a root shell:

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p8 of=/data/local/tmp/kernel.img bs=4096
then from normal cmd:

Code:
adb pull /data/local/tmp/kernel.img
And post the kernel.img - should be 8mb

I will also need: Settings -> About device -> Build number

Oh ok. I would, but I haven't rooted mine yet. Still deciding if I want to keep my grey one or exchange it for the white lolol. Hopefully, someone who is already rooted will be kind enough to do it for you.

Thanks for your effort and time.

I am getting issues with both TWRP and CWM. With TWRP, the data partition is unable to mount, making a full wipe a no go. With CWM, data partition can mount...but the external sd can't. Anyone else having these issues, or is it something on my end?

I can use my extSD with CWM so it's something on your end. I used the toolkit for the N7100 but same stuff...

I just sent you a pm with the stock recovery.img from my device(T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2). My build number is JRO03C.T889UVALJ1. Hopefully this gives you what you need. Thanks again.

Just sent you a pm with the mount points for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2. Thanks for this tool. It's incredible.
