    Instructions:
    ****If you want CWM recovery to be installed please use the alternative method****


    Easy method: (CF-auto root) ***Follow these instruction carefully***

    Thanks to Chainfire for producing cf-auto root :)

    3.Extract the .zip file to some where you can access it easily. Make sure that you do not extract it twice :)

    4. Run the program ODIN.exe

    5. Click the PDA button [do not try to be clever and click other things]=> choose the file you have extracted Cf-autoroot...tar.md5

    9. Do not check REPARTITION

    10. Click start and Be happy :) [This stage should be long, if its taking you hours, you must have done something wrong]

    11. Hit the "Thanks" button! and also go and thanks chainfire too!

    10. Hit the "thanks" button!


    What should i do after rooting the device?

    1. Stay with the boring stock rom that was made by your manufacturer.
    or
    2. Flash a custom rom and enjoy the smoothness and customization of the rom


    Guide on how to flash a custom roms:

    1. Download the rom you like: i would now like to breifly explain the difference between Aosp based custom rom and stock based custom rom.
    Aosp [android open source project] rom:
    -This type of rom are commonly known as "pure google roms" there will be no Touchwiz or SenseUI. The most famous Aosp based rom is the cyanogenmod rom. Aosp roms is most oftenly the lightest rom, but this does not mean that there is less customization. This type of rom will often gives better/faster performance than the stock rom, but however it can be less stable.
    Stock based custom rom:
    -Stock rom are roms that is made by your manufacturer, it is made specifically for your device. Developer will use this rom as a base and add some customization to the rom. Developer may also take out some things they do not like out of the rom, these are often known as "bloatwares." By using stock based custom roms, user will benefit from its stability, and some of the function made specifically for their device, e.g. S-pen functions.
    Some link to the custom roms:
    Stock based roms:
    Omega: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1915036
    Wanamlite: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1928227
    Hypernote: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1942132
    ***There are more in the development section***
    Aosp based roms:

    Cm 10 and 10.1: http://get.cm/?device=n7100 *** if you are a beginner do not use 10.1 for now its still not stable ***
    Jellybam: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1996038
    Paranoid Android: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1970335
    ***There are more in the development section*** ALWAYS DO A MD5 SUM CHECK before flashing!!!

    2. The rom you have downloaded should be in a .zip file ready for you to flash. DO NOT extract the file!

    3. Connect your device to the PC (you do not need to turn it into download mode)

    4. Copy the zip file into your INTERNAL sdcard (your phone storage), place it some where you can access it easily.

    5. At this point make sure that your battery level is higher than 30% (i would recommend that it is fully charged or at least higher than half).

    6. Reboot into CWM recovery [How? HOLD POWER+VOLUME UP+HOME]

    7. If you are coming from stock rom or any other rom that is not the one that you will be flashing, you will need to make a full wipe!

    8. DO A NANDROID BACKUP!=> go to backup and restore=>backup

    9. Do a factory reset/data wipe

    10. Wipe cache partition

    11. advanced->wipe dalvik cache

    12. Now it's time to flash the rom, to do this just select "install zip from sdcard" and then choose the .zip (your rom that you have downloaded) from you internal sdcard. ***Your rom that you have downloaded might use the aroma installer, just follow what it says and select what you would like to be installed.

    13. DONE! *** first boot might take around 3-5 minutes, if you get a bootloop, try booting into recovery and do a full wipe and reflash the rom, if it still does not boot, go into recovery and restore from your NANDROID backup :)

    You can root the stock rom and use titanium backup (or similar) to uninstall the aps you dont want. This is what I have done. No need to put a custom firmware on your phone. You dont even need CWM.
