Why would I update the kernel of my Korean Note to Tegrak? There are so many kernels out there for Galaxy Note. Why have one specifically for Tegrak?
The primary reason (at least for me) to update to Tegrak Kernel is to be able to root my device. While there are many rooted kernel variants and custom ROM available for International Galaxy Note (N700) and AT&T, there's very few for the Korean note version. In fact, for the english speaking community, it is the only rooted kernel that's well-documented and discussed. In the Korean and Chinese forums there seems to be a handful of custom rooted ROMs, but unless you speak those languages, you would find it almost impossible to register (because of the foreign characters), moreso to download and install the necessary files. Tegrak kernel also appears to be highly popular even for those communities.

For a more technical understanding of the Tegrak kernel, you can find it on it's website (in Korean so you may want to use Google's translate feature) or for an english description, via its Google Playstore kernel app page. Note, as described on the section below entitled "Completing the Rooting Process", you will need to install and configure this app to complete the rooting process.

Are there other means of rooting Korean Galaxy Note aside from updating to Tegrak's kernel?
Yes, you can download a rooted stock binary (Original Samsung firmware, but rooted) and install it. Note that this is a 1.2GB file download. Here's the link on how to do it:

Are there custom ROMs available for our beloved Korean Note?
There's one I know of that seems to be working well, and it's CM9- Android 4.0.4 (aside from a handful probably that's impossible to download from those Chinese and Korean forums for us english users). A couple of things that has kept me from using it is the lack of support from call recording and inability to connect to infrastructure wireless setup that my company is using. I also like the pen-features built-in with Samsung touchwiz interface. Other than that, it really is very snappy and feels faster than stock. You can find the CM9 rom in this thread:

Pre-Requisites
  1. Make sure you have Samsung Kies installed so your phone will be recognized during "download mode" (see below)

  1. Run ODIN, you should see a yellow “0:[COM__]” at the left side to continue
  2. Make sure only "Auto Reboot" and "F Partition Time" are checked
  3. Look for a tab that says “PDA” and select the correct "Recovery" .tar file for your model from the links below
  4. Click “Start” and wait for the reboot
  5. Next is turn off the device again, once the device is fully turned off… hold the following buttons: volume up + volume down
  6. While holding down the volume buttons, turn on the device by pressing the power button

    rak Recovery

Congratulations- your done. Enjoy debloating and optimizing your phone!

Thanks, and FA09 Links

Thanks for the tutorial. Worked like a charm. Finally I can set a lower DPI (with ROM Toolbox).
The liks for the previous kernel/recovery (FA09) can be found here:

Hi Guys. I will try to root my Korean phone today(e160k). I'm still a root virgin so please help me:

1.) The download links posted by jairrab includes 2 files each (FA09 & UI24). I checked my phone's build number and the last part says .UI24. Does this mean that I will only download the UI24 and ignore the FA09?
2.) Do I need to install Kies on my netbook? I will use a slow windows net book to root. ODIN will not work on my macbook pro.
3.) How do I find the root of my internal storage?
4.) Should I save the Kernel in its zip form or should I unzip it?
5.) Should I enable or disable USB debugging when rooting?
6.) Currently,I can use 4G on my korean note? Is it possible to get LTE signal from this phone (since its an LTE phone) after rooting?
7.) Recommended apps to speed up my phone after rooting? do you know any app that can read external HD tested on korean note?

Sorry for the dumb root questions and for my english.

Thanks.

2.) Do I need to install Kies on my netbook? I will use a slow windows net book to root. ODIN will not work on my macbook pro. Kies is mainly intended to install the necessary drivers so that your phone gets detected by ODIN. If your phone works with ODIN even without Kies, then no need to install it. You will need Kies though when you need to update to a new firmware from Samsung
3.) How do I find the root of my internal storage? use Root Explorer
4.) Should I save the Kernel in its zip form or should I unzip it? No need to unzip
5.) Should I enable or disable USB debugging when rooting? not necessary, but suggest you enable USB debugging, especially when you use ADB
6.) Currently,I can use 4G on my korean note? Is it possible to get LTE signal from this phone (since its an LTE phone) after rooting?
7.) Recommended apps to speed up my phone after rooting? do you know any app that can read external HD tested on korean note? Titanium backup to remove bloatware. You can also install Tegrak overclock app.

Hi Jai.

Actually before I read your answer I have already rooted my phone using your guide... I was planning to video it but I was so focused with your instructions so I forgot.

Regarding the Tegrak overclock. What is your recommended settings? I'll download Titanium now.

Hi Guys,

I want to do a nandroid back-up. However, it seems that korean galaxy note is not supported by CWM recovery. Any recommendations? Can i use the CWM recovery of AT&T galaxy note to do the nandroid back-up? thanks.

Don't think you need root access for that. That's root of internal storage (sdcard), not system storage. In fact you can place it anywhere in your internal or external storage, you just need to know where it is so you can locate it.

Perfect! Now I am root! :good:
PS. I only had to reinstall and update KIES to the latest version and everything went smoothly sailing.

Btw, if an update comes via OTA/KIES would I still be able to update my note and retain root? Or do I need to revert it back to non-root? If so, what are the necessary steps to do this? Thanks!

Hi Guys, is there an SMS fix for the SHV-E160L that only has 80 Characters?

I tried installing hancent sms and go sms still i cannot send more than 80 characters it all failed

I tried to follow instructions in this thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1775015 but now i cannot send sms.

Please let us know if what would be the fix for the sms.

Thanks!

I think there's a problem when sending sms between 80 to 160 characters. If it exceeds 160 should be okay.

Follow the procedure. You flash the kernel via booting to recovery menu, not via ODIN

Hi guys. I am truly sorry for highjacking this post, but I am a bit desperate with my problem regarding this phone.

I recently purchased it, but I can't use any sms app from the market (like chomp, go sms etc), I can only use the stock one (Any other app doesnt send/receive and sms messages)

Also, in the notification area, I do not see "Vodafone" as my carrier, but a number 22601. Any ideas? The sms is a big problem for me, because i need some functions not available on stock messaging app :(

One thing I know is that non stock SMS seems to fail when length is greater than 90 but lower than 160 (or 145). But you said you can't also receive SMS from non-stock, that's unusual.

You may want to try installing CM9, sms works without character limitation even for stock app.

Wondering whether anyone has tried doing the OTA update and keeping root by using the "temp unroot" and/or "OTA survival" options in Superuser? If so, was it successful, and would you mind giving a quick rundown of the steps?

Thanks!

    Just FYI for all of the Korean note users:
    See the super thread located in the general section...
    I've given you a quasi-section for all of your related threads...

    Likely you already know this, but with the lack of a full section for your devices, I decided you needed a place to call home, even if it resides within a thread.
    There you will find all combined threads applicable to your devices...

    And please PM me if you have further additions that need to be made......g

    Edit: this thread has also been added as of today....g

    Good job Jairrab. Very clear instructions and easy-to-follow. Can you also add up all the links of the previous recovery and kernels on each models so it will be much easier just in case someone needs it. Thanks.
