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
damn... i think it did 4.4.. so i'm screwed>?
guess I need to pay someone to unlock it then? I unlocked my s2 was easy.. but this is pretty frustrating
Edit.. Holy Smokes! I got it to unlock!!! I downloaded the Rogers_j2 modem and flashed it. Follwed the hidden menu unlock method and it worked!! [email protected]!! took me like the whole afternoon-evening!!.
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.
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.....The stock ROM is here (you can flash any Canadian stock ROM to the phone): https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SGH-I317M/

To flash TWRP using Windows:
- open Odin and uncheck everything except f reset time;
- click on the PDA box and select the tar version of TWRP that you downloaded;
- put the phone into download mode and connect the phone to the computer;
- 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/
