Talking Guide for Root using Odin

Hi everyone,

I've Rooted my Note using Odin, very simple like most Samsung devices. I've got a full guide here.

Basically flash netchips kernel for CWM in PDA in Odin and then flash a SU zip from recovery and you're done (if that isn't enough info for you then check the blog). Current drawback of this approach Vs the zergrush exploit is that you cannot return the Note to a factory state for warranty purposes (the flash counter remains elevated). This means your warranty is really, truly, borked. I'm sure someone will crack it soon, but for now this is the state of play.

Video also has bonus demo of the Note running the 'tegra-only' Shadowgun and outputting it via MHL to an external monitor and playing it with a PS3 controller!

Seems broken here, should be able to just flash a stock kernel back on though, Root privileges should be retained... will check tomorrow and add to the guide if needed.

Note to anyone who used Netchip method: Flashing CF Root will fix your hotspot tethering.

This is my first android device, and loving it. I require root access to have wifi function at my work. I had no troubles rooting the phone using AndroidNZís original method (now method 2 on their website, canít post link here coz itís my first post L) That method uses the Odin application in Windows.

Yesterday I updated Gingerbread to 2.3.6 using the Mobile ODIN app on my phone, which was supposed to maintain my root access, but it didnít.

Now I canít seem to get root back, using the KK9 kernel. Iíve tried both methods at AndroidNZ, the zerg method works to the point when it tries to copy the zImage to the phone, and the phone has an error regarding brcm.bluetooth. And then the process just hangs. The second method using ODIN bluescreens my windows pc as soon as it tries to copy stuff to phone.

About phone shows:

Android version
2.3.6

Baseband version
N7000XXKK5

Kernel Version
2.6.35.7-gb4846d2
netchip@netchip-dev #2

Build Number
GINGERBREAD.XXKK9

Iím not sure what to do now, or even if Iím doing the right thing. Any constructive advice would be appreciated.

Did you have a Nandroid backup? You could restore that and then go from that point again.

The problem is likely to be that your kernel version doesn't match the CFRoot KK9 kernel. Flash the KK9 kernel to the phone (in Mobile Odin under PDA) and then try the second Root guide method again.

If that fails I'd try flashing a stock ROM again and the using the Zergrush/CF method with the appropriate CFRoot kernel.

Thanks for the reply. Just got home from work and tried the zerg method and it worked fine. Now have kernel 2.6.35.7-N7000XXKK9-CL725676 se.infra@SEP-53 #2.

No idea why my laptop wouldn't do it, my gaming PC did it straight up, doing nothing different.

Thanks again for reply.

I'm looking for some assistance?
I've used the above method I understand I no longer can return the phone to factory state due to my rooting inexperience Ive only backed up after rooting.
Anyway we live and learn.
What I want to do is update the kernal from the current netchip version.
No matter how I go about it I'm getting errors.
I have used the cwm method and attempted using mobile Odin.
All I want is restore to a stock kernal.
I know my description is vague but would greatly appreciate any assistance?
