Hello XDA,
I know there are lot of guides on how to root the Galaxy Note ,but unfortunately I have not seen a guide that is clear enough to beginners that know nothing about Android. So, after hard work I have done a guide on how to root the Samsung Galaxy note and put it in your hands.

Note:I Have Also Made A Picture Full Guide So, IF This Guide Wasn't Clear For You, You Can Go HERE

Introduction:
Today, I will guide you on how you can root your Samsung Galaxy Note Gt-N7000 that has ice cream sandwich and Jellybean Android firmware. We have two ways for rooting this device. The first one is very simple because it involves install an app then get root from that app.The other method is rooting via stock recovery, it will also install a safe kernel and ClockWorkMod recovery.

Disclaimer:
I’m not responsible if something went wrong on your phone(Usually nothing goes wrong), you’re doing this on your own responsibility.
Rooting your device will void your warranty.To know more about rooting check What is rooting and it’s top 10 benefits.
Backup your Data like contacts and apps so IF something bad happened you will be prepared.
All these methods WONT trigger the yellow triangle.


Remember:.
it's Always better to backup your device before proceeding with any of these methods.You can also always check my article about How To backup Every Android Mobile Phone

Method1:Rooting via installing an application:
This method is very easy and simple but not recommended because you will have to patch the exploit (the bug) that allowed you to root which Might make your camera stop working but the camers will also work again after you unpatch the exploit. Also, this will change your phone status to modified. So, only do this if you are sure that you want to root your device easily.
Step1:Download the apk(the application) from Chainfire Original Thread.

Step2: After you have finished downloading the app. Install it by going to the directory you download it to, then click on it. If you got this error message
Go to Setting-> Security-> Tick “Unknown Sources”

Step3: Now open the app and click “Root device”. As showen.

Step4:Now you will get this screen so click “Grant”.

Step5: Now your device is rooted but,for Security reasons you have to tick “Disable Exploit” & “Disable Exploit on boot”. IF you had any issues with the camera than untick these options.


Step6: Now close this app and go to you app drawer where you will find a new app called SuperSu,click on it and when it opens it will ask you to update the binary so tab on “Continue”.
Finally this means you are rooted,
Hooray!

OR

Method2:
Rooting with Stock Recovery+Safe Kernal + CWM Recovery: [recommended]
Requirements:
1-You will need to download the kernel based on your rom from HERE (Download the .zip file only). You will find the kernel version in the “Setting-> About phone”. If you found problems to find your kernel don’t hesitate to ask.

Let’s Start:
Step1:Copy the .zip file to your External SD card
Step2: Now shutdown your galaxy note completely. Then, boot into recovery mode by holding the volume up+ the home button, Now press the power button ONLY for 5 seconds.(Keep pressing the Volume up +Home button after you see your phone model screen)
Step3:After then you will see the recovery menu,Now choose “install update from External SD”. And choose the .zip file we downloaded earlier .
Step4:Then choose yes. Now your phone will install the root. After your phone reboots you should see SuperSu app in your app drawer.


Hooray You’re ROOTED

NOTE:This method will root your phone + install CWM recovery but if you wanted to only root then follow method 3.

Method3:Rooting with Stock Recovery:
NOTE: This method could brick your phone if you wipe your data\factory reset. So, make sure you don’t wipe data\factory reset. Or root using method 2.
Requirements:
Download these files:
1- Root_Busybox_1.20.2.zip
2-Root_SuperSU.0.95-FreeSpace.zip

Let’s Start:
Step1:Copy both files to your External SD card
Step2: Now shutdown your Galaxy Note completely. Then, boot into recovery mode by holding the volume up+ the home button, Now press the power button ONLY for 5 seconds.(Keep pressing the Volume up +Home button after you see your phone start.)
[COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]Step3:[/COLOR]After then you will see the recovery menu, Now choose “install update from External SD”. And choose the “Root_SuperSU.0.95-FreeSpace.zip” file we downloaded earlier .And choose yes.
Step4:Now go back to the main recovery menu,Aslo Choose “Install update from External SD” And choose the “Root_Busybox_1.20.2.zip” file we downloaded earlier. After your phone reboots you should see SuperSu app in your app drawer.

Hooray You’re ROOTED

The idea is the beginner goes and learns, using the guide as a list of things he needs to be competent at.
People want it way to easy. IMO

Great guide
As the title says, great effort!! I personally followed another guide about 6 months ago but this definitely makes it concise and easier to follow with little prior knowledge.

Hi, my phone is rooted following method3 without busybox. My question is can I proceed with method2 straightly or should I undo what I already did (uninstall superSU for instance)?

Thanks in advance.
