I've managed to root my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE (SHV-E230L) using your ExynosAbuse app.
Right after that, I extracted the recovery.img file using a terminal and then turned it into a .tar file for uploading here.
Please use the attached file for your Auto Root, thank you.
I'm confused about something. The CF-Auto-Root Repository page says the following:
If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device - with the exception of Nexus devices, which will usually automatically "OEM unlock" and wipe your data !"
Then it goes on to list the files for flashing; in my case for a T-Mobile Note 2 SGH-T889. So...how do I know if my one week old SGH-T889 has a locked bootloader, in which case flashing the listed file (CF-Auto-Root-t0ltetmo-t0ltetmo-sght889) would brick the phone according to the warning above? I'm new to rooting... but the CF-Auto-Root is for newbies it says. Thanks for some help.

Thanks for a great way to gain root and have the phone as stock as possible. It was just what I was looking for. I do have a question about OTA updates. How do they work now that the phone is rooted. I noticed that when I go through the settings menu and click on software updates I get a message that tells me my device has been modified and software updates are not available. Will I have to use the Kies program to get all my updates now? If I wanted to reverse the root, how would I go about doing that?
So I've rooted phones before, but now I've got one that doesn't have a rooting "easy button," the Samsung Stratosphere II (Verizon SCH-i415, 4.0.4); doing a cat /proc/partitions doesn't give the names of the partitions, and being a total Linux/Android system noob, I can't tell off-hand which is which:
Chainfire, I notice earlier you said many Samsung devices don't use separate kernel/recovery partitions, so is this one of them? Am I pretty much out of luck as far as rooting goes?
Try flashing this with ODIN:
Let me know if it works.
First of all, wasn't sure if it was allowed to post on this thread (it's odd, 4 days old and no post), as I've seen nothing saying I shouldn't, here I go.
Newbie question here:
1) Is it possible to flash CWM Recovery with this root?
2) I'm willing to flash it, should I then just root using CF-Root(non-auto) as it already comes with CWM?
3) The version of CWM on CF-Root (non-auto) is already outdated, would it be a problem if I just flashed the new version over it with ODIN (download it from clockworkmod.com/rommanager and flash)?
I ask this because I want to keep my phone as stock as possible, but want to be able to perform a Nandroid backup and flash some ZIPs (if there's a way to perferm/restore Nandroid backups and flash ZIPs w/o CWM please tell me how )
