Default CF AutoRoot

The famous and honorable mister Chainfire posted a working cf auto-root for the NotePRO Wifi and NotePRO LTE here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=235

I tested the WiFi variant and it works like a charm.

The procedure is as usual (Beware: This root method will flag or trip the KNOX counter):
1. download the zip file and unzip it
2. Use Odin 3.09 and put the unzipped tar.md5 file in the AP slot (all options set to default)
3. Boot your NotePRO into download mode (turn off NotePRO and hold the volume down button and power button simultaneously. Follow the instructions on the screen)
4. connect the NotePRO to your computer via the USB port, wait until Odin sees the device and hit Start

Interesting. My NotePro 12.12 Wifi only has two days so I'll wait a bit more before rooting, but definitely have to do it.
Will this work with all stock ROMs/countries?

Worked great - no issues. Tablet is now much more productive.

Best part is using AppSetting Xposed module. Can finally make use of the screen real estate

Can't seem to get Pen Window Manager to work though. Would really like to be able to configure the list of pop up windows. Wanam works great for adding apps to the Multi Window Tray. But it doesn't have options for Pen Window.

If an update gets pushed for our device will we be able to install it without a custom recovery?

I got stuck at cache.img trying to root and now my device seems stuck with the "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". Not sure how to fix it. Googling...

So I should flash the recovery img .tar file the same exact way I tried to do the root zip file? In the PDA slot?

EDIT: The answer is apparently yes.

Thank you I was worried there for a bit!
