i just noticed this ..
whenever i go to Settings, the sound will automatically be on mute but after i exit the Setttings menu, it goes back to normal .. not sure if it's the kernel or the root that's causing it ..

Since NC2 is older than ND3, Towelroot must work directly on NC2. No need to flash ND3 kernel and then ROM kernel, just execute Towelroot and it must work.

It would be something like this ???

1. Download and install Towelroot app (https://towelroot.com/), but do not use it yet.

2. Run Towelroot app and tap "let it ra1n" (after that you can remove Towelroot app)

3. This step is not mandatory, but I recommend to install SuperSU app from Play Store (thanks to @Chainfire).

4. Enjoy your rooted ROM and KNOX 0x0. All data, applications and settings will remain untouched

Ok did it, now i installed SuperSU, i tried to update binaries, and it says: "Samsung Knox has been detected. this might limit root capabilities and cause annoying popups. Try to disable knox?

Do I press OK ?

Yes, press OK. It will certainly tell you that it failed to update binaries but after reboot everything is correctly updated and SuperSU will be OK.

my baseband is n9005ZHUENH4. so how will i root my note 3. like i've rooted note 2 of mine. but in that case i did get the root file for my exact baseband number. but this time i don't see any.

I just followed the procedure and it went like a charm, except that at the end I ended up with a very workable device, Knox at 0 0, but on DeviceStatus it says "Custom" and no software updates possible! What did go wrong?

I've found just wiping the cache and rebooting cured this.

Do I understand correctly that to avoid losing Knox "virgin" status one has to avoid custom recovery? Because I keep on reading Xposed modules asking for taking a backup, making sure being able to use recovery, etc. and so... one roots his device to be able to access it freely but these two things don't seem to get along.

Anyone with a firm understanding on the legality of Samsung refusing to honour the warranty in case of Knox 0x1?

i have done this successfully, the reason for doing so was to enable LTE/4G as my carrier was supposed to be enabled in the NG1 update but was not.

Is there a way to return to unrooted status (so i can use my corporate email / sky go etc.) ?

Thanks

Paul

    Firstly a big thanks to @geohot for his awesome app - Towelroot, so don't forget to hit "Thanks" in this thread:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2783157

    Unfortunately, this app does not work in case of Samsung stock ROMs: FNF4 or newer :(

    Fortunately I have found a way :D A way is based on my very old idea, published 14 January 2013 (but only HERE, because I'm XDA member since March 2013).


    Ready? Let's start! :)

    1. Download and install Towelroot app (https://towelroot.com/), but do not use it yet.

    2. Download XXUEND3 100% stock kernel (PC Odin flashable file):

    >> KERNEL_N9005XXUEND3.tar.md5 <<

    3. Go to Download Mode, load file as AP using PC Odin, connect the phone, click Start, wait for start up your phone.

    NOTE: After this step you can see that wifi not working but don't worry - everything will be fine after restoring your original kernel (p.5). To continue (p.4), you will temporarily need a data connection.

    4. Run Towelroot app and tap "let it ra1n" (after that you can remove Towelroot app)

    5. Download your original kernel, matched to the ROM version you are using. Flash it in the same way as in p.3:

    >> Recent kernel versions for SM-N9005 <<

    (N9005DX, N9005VJ, N9005ZH, N9005ZT users - go to the "Kernel_DX_VJ_ZH_ZT" folder)

    6. This step is not mandatory, but I recommend to install SuperSU app from Play Store (thanks to @Chainfire).

    7. Enjoy your rooted ROM and KNOX 0x0. All data, applications and settings will remain untouched :D


    Report 2014.11.28:

    Above scenario has been successfully performed on stock firmwares: XXUFNF4, XXUFNG2, XXUGNG1, XXUGNH1, XXUGNI4, DXUFNG2, DXUGNH1, VJUFNG3, ZHUENH4 :D

    I have added DX, VJ, ZH, ZT kernels to "Recent kernel versions", so please let mi know if it works, especially if it is not reported yet :)


    Hit "Thanks" button if you like my work :)

    Hi guys two questions in step 4 do i really need a data connection, the phone signal in my house is way too bad, may i use usb to transfer the towel app to the device from my pc? if not which other alternative do i have?

    The second one after being rooted could i get the official updates for my phone? i already read that doing so will result in your device lost its rooted condition so, i just wanna know i after root i still can get the updates.

    in my experience the data connnection is used by supersu to download new su binaries. so, yes, you can transfer the towel app to the deive through pc.

    yes ota is available after towel root. yes, you will get updates and your device is still official and unmodified.

    after rooting, do i just install custom recovery and flash rom?

    thats up to you. after rooting, you can install mobile odin. without installing a custom recovery, you can flash a rom. You can even retain 0x0 knox if you don't flash a new kernel.

    root up and enjoy

    Hey guys,

    I've just got my Note 3 N9005 and I was reading about the root. My phone came with 4.4.2 preinstalled XXUENC2 and after a lot of reading I was begging to think that Rooting will be a pain. I downloaded Towelroot and started it just to see if it installed correctly. Incidentally I clicked on the rain button and it said done.... I downloaded root checker from the store and it confirmed it...?!?!? I installed SuperSU and it didn't want to update the binary for some reason and asked me to restart. after the restart SuperSU works and I have Root... I haven't flashed anithing and Knox is still 0x0

    Ideas how did this happened?

    How have you test this if you have Knox 0*1??????

    It's simple :)

    "Set Warranty Bit : kernel" message has not been displayed throughout the entire procedure :) its enough for me to be 100% sure :)

    As you can see in #7 - it works as it should :)

    tried it but on step 1 install Kernel XXUEND3: boot_N9005XXUEND3.tar.md5 my wifi is greyed out now so cant make it rain says need internet any help thx

    update wifi got greyed out but enabled data made it rain knox still 0 thx ,,,

    I did not notice it, but I used data

    Hello I have the gn3 itv no brand update to xxugng1.the last update. is it possible to downgrade to XXUEND3 make the root and than upgrade again? anyone try ?

    Downgrade the entire ROM to XXUEND3 is not possible (bootlop) - that's why my thread is very useful :D

    Your firmware is XXUFNG2 (last ITV update, according to Sammobile), so do as I wrote in #1 :D
