Does this still work?

So it looks like there was a big gap in time between messages on the last couple of pages on this thread. Does this still work for VZ Note 2's now on 4.4.2?

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.

Thx M8 :highfive:

This was driving me bat sh*t crazy!

Casual was stuck on "initialising protocol" and phone on "downloading";
once I unplugged phone, pulled/replaced battery, plugged back in and turned it on-
Casual recognized phone and said "connected, system ready" (link status- connected) and completed process! :D

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.

If you have correct files...boot to download mode and reflash with odin.

The device gets stuck on sboot.bin in Odin. I was on 4.4.2, and there was no warning so I went ahead. Now, I cannot restore because Odin sticks. How can I restore this phone? Need help. Download says binary: custom
system: official

Other phone broke, it'd be much appreciated of someone could help me here

Issue with my Note 2 N7100

Hi
Thank you for extensive development of program. I used it to root my Galaxy note 2 N7100 (not from Verizon) and followed the instructions. Now Phone is stuck in the loop of initial screen then blank screen then initial screen....

Vol. UP + Home key + Power does not work (Same as above result) - to stop this loop I have to remove battery but Vol down+ Home key + Power work in phone comes to ODIN mode.

Any advice ?



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.

Introduction
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.


Overview
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.


Download
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.


About CASUAL
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.


Updates
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
26JAN13: Instruct Windows users to install the proper bootloader -- auto CASUAL update
26JAN13: more concise directions --auto CASUAL update
7MAR13: Initiated beta test of one-click operation on all platforms!
17MAR13: Cross-platform Heimdall is now in effect with CASUAL R311b
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)
Use Zadig
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libwdi/files/zadig/zadig_v2.0.1.160.7z/download
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.

    Ironically I probably wouldn't have noticed the hole used this time had they not added the blacklisting of the old versions. Looking at the code for that gave me a push in the right direction

    Troubleshooting
    70% of problems with CASUAL involve USB cables and USB ports. All other problems can be tracked back to Windows XP.

    CASUAL Stops and my phone is in Odin Mode/Download Mode
    Use a different USB cable and a different USB port. Personally, I have two USB cables which work for everything and anything but they fail when it comes to Odin/Download Mode.

    CASUAL displays Disconnected and won't let me press the button
    Put your device into ADB mode. Settings>Developer Options>USB Debugging

    CASUAL is not working and it's not something above
    Did you install drivers? If you installed drivers, you need to uninstall and delete them. You don't need them because Windows installs them. Actually, they're poisonous, and some drivers install themselves with a future date which causes them to be un-upgradable. This means, you've shot yourself in the foot. You can run Samsung Kies and do the troubleshoot connection wizard, or you can go to device manager and uninstall the driver + delete driver.

    CASUAL is not working and I'm absolutely sure it's not a driver issue
    1. Let everything sit for a bit. CASUAL will generally pop up a troubleshooting message.
    2. If you're sure nothing has happened for the last 3 minutes, disconnect the USB and restart the device normally.
    3. Restart your computer
    4. Try again using a new stock USB cable, on a different USB port, preferably located in the back of the computer.

    I just want to annoy you
    First grab a hammer and go outside into the back yard and hit yourself repeatedly in the head. If you do not have a hammer, borrow one from your neighbor. If you don't have a yard, borrow one from your neighbor. If you don't have a head, mission accomplished.

    You probly caught it in the middle of a commit. try this: http://d-h.st/6c6

    This is CASUAL Revision 311. This includes quicker startup, a full Open Source stack of software, no Odin, auto-downloads, auto-executes, and it works on Windows and Linux. For Windows you have Drivers and MSRedist (both installed by CASUAL), this is a one-click procedure. We are working on making it easier by the day and expect the next release to be even easier. For now, the driver requires you to select "Gadget Serial" and hit install.

    I will bump this up to the first thread now because I've already tested on Window and Linux. Droid Modder X said he would have a video out soon.

    there no way to unlock boot loader on odin another way ?
    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...

    Basically, its down because jrloper and myself are reworking and upgrading. the CASUAL repository system. It will soon be infinitely expandable and able to pull resources from anywhere.

    An unfortunate side-effect of this is Quality Control takes a bit of time.. as we test, its getting better, faster, accommodating for more errors, performing more troubleshooting, becoming safer and even accounting for errors in data transfer across the internet.

    Its almost ready.
