NOTICE: This will not work on the latest firmware updates. Flashing will cause bootlooping and you will have to reload software.

If CASUAL brought you here, your version is outdated.

Well, this has been quite the saga thus far...
Us: Suck It Verizon (exploit)
them: Suck it XDA-Developers (OTA patch)
Us: Back Atcha Verizon (exploit)
them: Stop it XDA (OTA Patch)
Us: No You! (exploit)

Introduction
CASUAL will guide you through the process. Put your device into “Developer Mode>USB Debugging”. Click the do it button. If you experience a problem, PLEASE USE THE PASTEBIN button to post a log. CTRL+L>Pastebin> come back here and press ctrl+V. We need a log or it didn't happen. 70% of the time when someone posts a general description, we need more information.

Overview
You are expected to be STOCK.... Stock anything, but stock. If you are not stock and have a custom recovery, this will cause you to only be able to flash back to stock using Odin or Heimdall. Be stock. You will need to download and execute the CASUAL application below. Then click the Do It! button. You need Java. Do you have Java?.

note: if it fails, try turning everything off and back on, then run it again before posting for help.


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. Make sure you're connected to the internet.
Windows 8 is supported but you must install drivers for Download Mode first. See this post
Windows XP IS NOT supported! If you can make Windows XP work, share the knowledge. XP is 12 years old now, Microsoft and I both discontinued support for Windows XP.

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:
Code:
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk gksu dpkg
NOTE: Linux 32/64 bit Heimdall may require an update. I will be taking care of it this weekend. If it works, please let me know so I can remove this message.

Mac Users: Mac works easier than any other system at the time of this systems. Please report problems.


Download
CASUAL(R515b) No You 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. While the video uses an old version the procedure is mostly the same.


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. While the video uses an old version, the procedure is mostly the same.

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.
8May13: After last the issues with this release, I spent 5.5 hours updating to VRAMC3 and .1 testing this package. . It works well, I assure you.. I assume the previous release had a bad MD5. I apologize for any inconvience.
9May13: Initial Release
10May13: Fixed windows driver issue. Added clearer instruction messages to wait (fixed "hanging"). Added better error handling. CASUAL R492 -- killed old versions

You need to disable the default USB drivers with the following commands:
Code:
sudo kextunload -b com.apple.driver.AppleUSBCDC;
sudo kextunload -b com.apple.driver.AppleUSBCDCACMControl;
sudo kextunload -b com.apple.driver.AppleUSBCDCACMData;

Dont post logs here. They're ugly. Use pastebin. Please remove all of that. I specifically said not to post that.

Try it again with a better cable. I see it is disconnecting and reconnecting repeatedly. That's a bad cable if I've ever seen one... Odin mode does not have error correction like ADB. Its really picky about having good cables and a good USB port.

When this works, please post that it worked.

Sorry, I'm a novice with having to post that stuff. I don't have to post logs much.


I don't understand how the cord could be bad since its the one that came out of the box yesterday. But I don't have access to one right this second

On EDIT: Went into the temp file and individually clicked on each of the .exe files. Rebooted phone and restarted CASUAL. Everything worked fine after that.
Thanks again! Donation sent yesterday.

Tried 2
different cables on 2 different ports. No luck so far. http://pastebin.com/741wqT3T
Any ideas?
This is a brand new Note 2 on the latest OTA which installed at the store when I got it.

Thanks!

Original thread you posted 2 days ago worked for my Note 2 I purchased used on Sunday. Same cable I have connected to my computer for years now, process was butter smooth. Phone updated to 4.1.2 before I had a chance to get home and root.

Only had to battery pull after it hung initially. Thanks! Will send donation as soon as I get PP funds.

Looks like it failed while attempting to install CADI. Do you have administrative permissions?

We may need to make a change to the execution of CADI.

Im getting the same error with numerous usb cables and using different usb ports.

No you didn't. You're the first to get this error. You have UAC disabled or you have no administrative permissions. Notice the loop while attempting to install drivers. also, it returned "null" as in it returned less a blank line.
