Hello everyone, I was undecided for a few weeks, but now I would like to share this new method (experimental), to get the root on our Galaxy Note, having as a base any stock ics rom. I tried it ONLY with N7000 LP1 and I9220 ZLP1 ics rom, so
I'm pretty sure it will work with all future stock ics rom. I saw this method weeks ago somewhere surfing on the net, but I don't remember where, cause I didn't added bookmark to that page, and I decided to apply it to our beloved SNote....

REMEMBER, this is EXPERIMENTAL method, I will not be liable for any damages that may happen to your device

STARTING BASE MUST BE STOCK ICS UNROOTED DEVICE

Let's start :
1. download this file : https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BzRB5vMumafCbGVkTW1YWmVTei1RNW0ySlBiSE1lZw
2. unpack it in your EXTERNAL SD ROOT, in order to have these two files : CWM.zip and SU-Busybox-Installer.zip. This method can't be applied if you don't have external micro SD
3. reboot in stock recovery, select option "2" install from external sd card, select CWM.zip and wait until CWM touch recovery appears
4. now select option "2" install from sd card, then select SU-Busybox-Installer.zip, then reboot
5. FINISH, now your device should be full rooted

Note that with CWM touch recovery YOU WILL NEVER DO OTHER OPERATIONS, like BACKUP OR RESTORE OR SOMETHING ELSE.
The only other thing that I tried is to flash another kernel (best is abyss 3.9 with redpill recovery), then reboot recovery, and ONLY FROM REDPILL do your stuff, like flash a new rom...but I DID IT ONLY FROM LP1 LEAKED ROM, I am not responsible if you do it from another base rom and it doesn't work or brick your device

I REPEAT THAT THIS METHOD IS "HIGH EXPERIMENTAL" AND DON'T TRY TO DO OTHER THINGS THAN THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE

But if for you it worked and you liked it, offer me a coffee for as long as I'm experimenting...:D or simply hit "Thanks"...;)

Thanks to "grgsiocl" and "ferdi90", my first two (and only) beta testers...:D

Sounds interesting, but I doubt we'll see a herd of testers galloping in to give it a go. Not after we've all seen the effect the 'monster' had on a lot of Notes.

Kudos for thinking outside the box, though, maxicet.:)

ok, next time you'll come to Italy I'll offer you a coffee...:D
Recovery will not be permanent, you must repeat point "3" each time you need it

Hi , great work! :)

I've got a question first, after doing all this, can i install other Custom Roms (like Rocket Rom?), and what's the difference between this "CWM touch recovery" and normal CWM (in other tutorials) ? :)

    Thread closed

    The method has caused bricks, and no proper credit was given to the original developer - perhaps for his benefit, who wants their name associated with something that creates bricks? Now the bickering - thread closed.

    Won't work. Stock GB LB1 doesn't offer updates from external SD card and as previous posters wrote, the stock recovery fails checking the zips. I assume because they are not official updates.
