Hello friends!

If you have the wonderful Samsung Galaxy GT-N7000 Note, updated to ROM version N7000XXLA4 (2012-Jan-12) and you want to root it, here's the step by step to do it.

The current methods for root do not work for the lastest version, so you have to do a downgrade, ie flash a ROM version of the oldest official, apply the root method again and then flash the official ROM N7000XXLA4.

This procedure avoids the yellow triangle warning because we flash only official ROMs.

1. Download rootable by method zengrush or cf-root (eg N7000XXKJ4) official ROM
- http://hotfile.com/dl/133780325/5643...4_DBT.zip.html
- Pass: samfirmware.com
- Extract with 7zip
2. Download Odin v1.85
- http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1323799721
- Pass: samfirmware.com
- Extract with 7zip
3. Flash with Odin v1.85 the downloaded rootable official ROM (step 1)
- Set file N7000XXKJ4_N7000OXAKJ4_N7000XXKJ4_HOME.tar.md5 on PDA field
- UNCHECK Re-Partition option (very important)
- No change other options
- Shutdown the phone and turn on with VolumenDown+Home+Power pressed, after press VolumenUp to turn Downloading mode
- Connect USB cable (wait for the drivers are installed automatically)
- Click Start button

4. Root with zengrush or cf-root method
a. Zengrush method
- Check Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debug
- Check Settings > Applications > Unknown sources
- Download DooMLoRD_v4_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su script (http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...6&d=1325678726)
- Extract it
- Connect USB cable (wait for the drivers are installed automatically)
- Run runme.bat
b. cf-root method
- (I don't like it)

5. Download the lastest official ROM (ie N7000XKLA4)
- http://www.hotfile.com/dl/142436991/...4_DBT.zip.html
- Pass: samfirmware.com
- Extract with 7zip

6. Download and install MobileODIN Pro from Android Market

7. Flash with MobileODIN Pro the lastest official ROM (ie N7000XKLA4)
- Copy N7000XXLA4_N7000OXALA4_N7000XXLA4_HOME.tar.md5 to a phone folder
- Choose Open file...
- Browse N7000XXLA4_N7000OXALA4_N7000XXLA4_HOME.tar.md5
- Check in the options: Enable EverRoot, Inject Superuser, Inject MobileODIN, Inject CWM Manager
- Choose Flash firmware

Hi. Thanks for your indepth guide.

Is it possible to just flash "ROCKET-v20-LA4-eybee1970" custom ROM instead of the official LA4 rom in section 7?

Or do you need to flash a 'factory' LA7 then Rocket's rom?

Thanks.

The true meaning of this procedure is enjoy the latest version of the official rom rooted.

Anyway, of course you can.

You might add a step to your guide to download and flash the matching LA4 cf-root kernel to regain cwm recovery. A simple step once you are already familiar with mobile odin pro, and trading up 3e recovery for cwm could save folks a lot of trouble if they mess stuff up when taking advantage of those superuser permissions and end up not able to boot into the system to get to mobile odin pro.

You won't loose root if you flash with MobileODIN and EverRoot option enabled.

Don't worry. If you install a stock firmware, you will get any updates via OTA.
