Hi can anyone help me?
I tried doing the CF autoroot method. everything works and my note 2 boots back up but it doesn't go into recovery mode or I can't seem to access the recovery rom. I even tried using ODIN to install CW recovery and still can't. Am I doing something wrong? I just got this phone and I'm pressing both volumes +home key when powering on but it just boots up to android.

yeah i just figured that out. I c your also from T.O. I just bought the phone off someone today. It's locked to Bell been trying all day to unlock it but the unlock method by going through the debug mode doesn't seem to work for me. I finally got custom recovery and I did the dumbest thing by letting Kies update the firmware for me. Now I'm trying to get stock 4..1.1 rom back but really wanted to ask if you know how I would go abouts unlocking it. My sim is with Koodo/Telus

Yep. T dot here also.

You will need to get back on the orig firmware then unlock it. I unlocked my s3 and note 2 the same way, really easy but not if it updated!

What did kies update you to? 4.4? If it did as far as I know you cant go back even via odin.

My Charging port went bad, I changed it and not I can't connect to pc.

Is there any hope to root my AT&T Note 2 from SD or through Android? I know Towelroot doesn't work anymore, neither does kingroot.

is this possible also for N7100?

my n7100 is network dead after downgrading rom.

i`ve been trying different roms and 4.1 reads gen. IMEI

4.4.2 reads correct IMEI but dummy serial number and says out of service.

was wondering if your method could fix it.

anmac1789, I am in the same boat as you. I have not tried to customize ;) my Note 2 since very early days with Bell Root66 rom. I understand that we need to upload a stock recovery.img in order for Chainfire to try and make a CF autoroot. I can not figure out how to do that?? I am on Virgin Mobile (Bell) V4.4.2 as well.

You can also root the i317m by flashing twrp and then flash supersu with twrp.

I will have to search for procedure for this, thanks.

The stock ROM is here (you can flash any Canadian stock ROM to the phone): https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SGH-I317M/

Supersu is here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/stable-2016-09-01supersu-v2-78-release-t3452703

TWRP is here: https://dl.twrp.me/t0ltecan/

Odin 3.07 is here: https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=...5QWImOPDJboTA_V3D5S9eA&bvm=bv.145063293,d.amc

To flash TWRP using Windows:

  1. open Odin and uncheck everything except f reset time;
  2. click on the PDA box and select the tar version of TWRP that you downloaded;
  3. put the phone into download mode and connect the phone to the computer;
  4. flash TWRP and, when you see the word "reset" in the status window, remove the USB cable from the phone, remove the battery, replace the battery, boot into recovery which should now be TWRP.

To root, copy supersu to the phone's internal memory and a micro SD card, boot into TWRP, and install zupersu.zip from TWRP, reboot, allow binaries to update it required, reboot, and you'll have root access.

To root without flashing TWRP and the phone has stock recovery, download and flash cfautoroot from here:https://autoroot.chainfire.eu/

will this allow internal storage being used a USB mass storage or to appear as a drive letter in windows explorer so that we can import files such as word documents, pdf files, .m4a voice recorded files as well ? just like how we import photos and videos by right clicking on the samsung phone when it appears in windows explorer ... Thank you.....

Rooting has nothing to do with allowing mass storage. On a stock ROM, connecting the phone to a Windows machine in MTP mode will allow the phone's internal and external storage to appear as a drive letter in File Explorer.

    Check your device model ! Settings -> About device -> Model number. See the third post for exact support model numbers. If your device is a totally different model, it will not work (may even brick) !



    CF-Root is the root for "rooting beginners" and those who want to keep as close to stock as possible. CF-Root is meant to be used in combination with stock Samsung firmwares, and be the quickest and easiest way for your first root.

    Donate
    CF-Root has been available for many devices and has clocked over 8 million downloads. This is not even counting custom ROMs that already include it. Don't be a leech, buy me a beer (and use the "Thanks" button!). Imagine if every CF-Root user has donated me $1...

    What's installed
    - SuperSU binary and APK
    - Stock recovery

    Installation and usage
    Flash the CF-Auto-Root package as PDA in ODIN (details on how to do that are in next post), and your device should reboot into a modified recovery (signified by a large red Android logo) and it will install SuperSU for you and restore the stock recovery, and reboot back into Android.

    If you don't get to the red Android logo, boot into recovery manually ("adb reboot recovery", or boot while holding Power+VolUp+Home).

    Using this root increases your flash counter. You should run Triangle Away (see below) after rooting to reset the counter. Note that if you want to run custom kernels or custom recoveries, your flash counter will be set to 1 at every boot. Either configure Triangle Away to reset the counter at every boot (Play version only) or only reset the counter when you need to go into warranty.

    Did you see the red Android logo during rooting, but SuperSU does not appear? This may sometimes occur due to left-over files and settings, however, you can usually install SuperSU from Google Play at this stage and it'll just work.

    Not included - Triangle Away
    Triangle Away can be used to reset the flash counter after installing CF-Root. The flash counter keeps track of how many custom firmwares you have flashed, as this voids warranty. (No idea what this about ? Read up on it, you will want to use this !)

    Not included - adbd Insecure
    As this CF-Root does not include a custom kernel, adb shell does not have root access by default (you can still get it by typing su inside the shell), nor is adb remount supported, nor will adb push and adb pull work on system files. adbd Insecure can be used to remedy this situation. (No idea what this is about ? Don't worry about it !)

    ODIN Installation (detailed)

    - Follow these instructions to the letter. Do not touch any buttons or checkboxes that are not listed below to touch!
    - Unzip the attached Odin3-vX.X.zip file
    - Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file (see posts below this one)
    - If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
    - (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
    - Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
    - Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
    - Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
    - (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
    - Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
    - Click the Start button
    - Wait for Android to boot
    - Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

    - NOTE: Sometimes the device does *not* boot into recovery mode and root your device. Just do the entire procedure again if this happens. If it still will not install root and such, make sure that in Odin "Auto Reboot" is not checked. Then after flashing, pull the battery, and boot with VolUp+Home+Power button to boot into recovery manually. This will start the install process.

    New to Samsung? Unfamiliar with Odin? Think all the above is a hassle? Get used to it. It's very simple, and us Samsung folk use Odin (or Mobile ODIN ;)) for everything! It's so very very convenient once you get used to it. Notice the 30 second comment above? For experienced users, the entire process indeed takes only 30 seconds!

    You may now optionally want to install and run Triangle Away to reset the flash counter.

    @CF - donation made for your efforts with the "keep it simple root method"! this is the easiest method to root and then unroot that i've used. :) right after i rooted my device, i installed GooManager, flashed TWRP and began customizing my device. however, after a couple of days with my GN2, i've determined i'm not the targeted user for this device, so i unrooted and returned to att. this is a solid device, super fast, fluid with unlimited potential! In my case, I simply prefer the size of my S3.

    my unroot, return to stock rom, stock recovery and Normal device status are listed below. AS ALWAYS I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS FUBAR's YOUR DEVICE. i'm simply posting for informational purposes only. (not sure all of the steps below are are necessary):

    1. Reboot to TWRP recovery to complete a factory reset
    2. Used CF's method to re-root and reinstall the stock recovery (e.g., method listed in 2nd Post of this thread).
    3. Purchased & installed Triangle-Away from market
    4. Used Triangle-Away to reset the counter
    5. After reboot (from step 4) uninstalled Triangle Away
    6. Via SuperSU, used the Full Unroot option to unroot. Checked GN2 Device Status and it said Modified
    7. Booted into stock recovery performed a factory reset.
    8. After device rebooted, checked Device Status again and it said Normal
    9. Returned the device to att corp store; att checked and confirmed device status (as Normal) and issued a refund.
    CF, thanks again for your efforts!
