Default How-to: Root / Un-Root your SG-N7000

This is really the easiest method to root + change recovery to CWM + install a safe kernel on your Samsung Galaxy Note N7000
  • What's root?


  • What's CWM?


  • What's a safe Kernel?


  • Isn't it unsafe to use CWM?



On to the guides:

root + change recovery to CWM + install a safe kernel
  1. Visit this thread, have a read through then download one of the packages in the second post. You'll need to choose the right package for the kernel you need. The right kernel will depend on your baseband version. Goto 'About Phone' in your phones settings and look at the baseband (radio) version. For instance mine is N7000XXLRK so I would get the kernel XXLRK-XEU. Get the file ending .zip
  2. Copy the file you downloaded to the root directory of your external SD card (not the internal memory), do not extract the zip file just copy it over.
  3. Reboot into recovery by holding down vol up+Home+power, keep them held down until you see the Android with a spinning thing in his belly.
  4. Select 'apply update from external storage' by using the 'volume rocker' to scroll and 'power' to select.
  5. Select the kernel you previously downloaded using the same buttons (volume rocker then power)
  6. Once completed reboot your device.

Your device is now rooted, you have CWM as your recovery and you are on a safe kernel and are safe to factory reset and you'll be able to install a ROM of your choice through CWM.

How to unroot
Most custom ROMs and this method of installing CWM + safe kernel will also root your device. For most this is great but for some it's undesirable.

If you wish to unroot just flash the attached file from CWM recovery which will uninstall busybox and Superuser.
