I have seen a few others in recent weeks try this with some degree of success: when it gets stuck in download mode Casual should report *your phone should be rebooting into Android now*. If that is the case with your situation, unplug the USB cable, pull the battery, replace the battery, plug the cable back in, and power on the device. At that point Casual should continue the process of unlocking & rooting the device leaving you in recovery when it's finished.
Like I said I've seen this work a few times since I began following this thread. If Adam or jrloper think it's dangerous, or could cause a brick key me know and I'll remove my comments.

If it is stock, 4.42, No. The bootloader cannot currently be unlocked. I have used it on Note 2 this week using Windows 10. I did have to register it with Windows Defender to get it to work.
UPDATE: new version available here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2272066.
FIRST!!! First jailbreak under the new 2012 DMCA Excemption that is. First "Android Jailbreak" ever... Gah that name erks me... Anyway, You’re here to legally Jailbreak your Verizon Galaxy Note 2.
CASUAL will guide you through the process. Put your device into “Developer Mode>USB Debugging”. Click the do it button. This is not only the first release of this new Exploit, but it’s also a beta-test of CASUAL. I expect problems... however this will be addressed with updates. See the About CASUAL section below.
We decided to start a new thread becasue the old unlock method is tried and true on Windows with VRALJB. This method is based on a totally new exploit.
You are expected to be STOCK.... Stock anything, but stock. This will install a stock kernel and that may affect non-stock roms. You will need to download and execute the CASUAL application below. Then click the Do It! button. You need Java. Do you have Java?.
Windows 32/64 Users: CASUAL will put your device into Download Mode. It will automatically flash everything. If drivers are required, jrloper's CADI (CASUAL Automated Driver installer) will handle it. If Microsoft VC Redistributable is required, click next, next, next. Make sure you're connected to the internet.
Linux 32/64/raspberry pi Users There may be a permission escalation in order to install heimdall, either way sit back and relax. CASUAL automates the entire process.
Please run the following in a terminal first:
Mac Users: Mac works easierr than any other system at the time of this release on 32bit systems. Please report problems.
CASUAL(R465b) Back Atcha Verizon CASUAL is used to automate the process. The exploit was developed by Elite Recognized Developer Ralekdev and packaged by AdamOutler. To run CASUAL you need Java. Do you have Java?
Jailbreak video for Windows users only!
This video desmonstrates CASUAL used with Odin to flash the Galaxy Note 2 firmware Thanks to DroidModderX.
Jailbreak video for LINUX only!
This video demonstrates the one-click CASUAL Linux Unlock method... at 2AM.. so don't expect me to be cheerful.
CASUAL stands for Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Univeral Android Loader. CASUAL jar files are a wrapper for the CASUAL scripting language. CASUAL allows rapid and accurate deployment of hacks and exploits. At any time, if a serious problem is detected with any script, the kill-switch will be flipped and you will be brought to a support page (most likely here) so you can download the latest version. Otherwise for minor corrections, new CASUAL scripts can be deployed remotely.
CASUAL provides updates WAAAAY quicker than Verizon. As soon as I push an update to the Subversion repo it appears automatically in EVERY casual. See below for the change log.
25JAN13: Initial release.
25JAN13: put your device into download mode automatically on Windows. Windows users, let me know if this is annoying. -auto CASUAL update

20MAR13: Removed mac blocker from script --auto CASUAL update.
6APR13: kill-switch activated as most of repository has been restructured and drivers/dependencies will not be deployed. This will be resolved soon with a new version.
7APR13: New version includes better driver support via jrloper's CADI and on-the-fly updates for drivers and more. 32/64bit Heimdall for Mac is now supported. Several irrelevant command line features were added as well.
18APR13: CASUAL R417 Several fixes with improved logging and pastebin support thanks to jrloper
2May13: killswitch for old versions implemented.
Alright I'm going to post a debug version, later this evening. If you're willing to help me out I'd appreciate the output from it.
In the mean time, if you would like to finish jailbreaking, do as before (placing your phone in download mode)
Select "Options" -> "List All Devices"
Then from the dropdown Select "Gadget Serial", then click "Replace Driver".
That should allow you to run CASUAL without further hiccups. Once you reboot your phone.

Please stand by. I expect to have everything working again today. The purpose of the down-time is to ensure there will be no Downtime in the future. I'm working on it now...
