Default Root Jelly Bean 4.1.2

I found a tutorial about how to root the new firmware and wanted to share with everyone. I did not create this I am just passing on help which I know some people will want. I am not responsible if you brick your tab.

This rooting process will only provide root for the Galaxy Note 10.1. The users will have to install custom recovery like CWM recovery separately to flash custom ROMs or hacks in the device. Rooting would also increase binary flash counter, the report added. (Fix for this at the bottom of this guide)

Those users, who want to root their Galaxy Note 10.1 running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean official firmware, should keep in mind certain important aspects before trying out the rooting process:

- Since there are chances of losing personal data and settings, having proper backups is highly recommended

- The process is meant only for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8013). The users must check their devices’ model number in: Settings > About device

- The device must have at least 80 percent of battery power (Not true I had 50% and it worked just fine)

- USB Driver must be installed for Galaxy Note 10.1 in your computer with USB Debugging enabled

- IBTimes cannot be held responsible for anything that goes wrong. Users should proceed at their own risk

How To Root

Step 1: Download CF-Auto-Root to root N8013UEUCMA3 firmware (Filename: CF-Auto-Root-p4notewifi-p4notewifiue-gtn8013.zip) to your computer and extract the zip file.

Step 2: Download Odin 3.07 and extract the file.

Step 3: Reboot into ODIN download mode by holding down Power and Volume Down buttons together for about 15 seconds. Then press the volume + button.

Step 4: Run Odin 3.07 as Administrator and connect the tablet to your computer via USB cable.

Step 5: If the tablet is connected properly, you will see “Added” message in Odin. You will also see COM port with a number in Yellow (Mine didn't show up in yellow, it if doesn't it will still work just look for added towards the bottom left).

Step 6: Click the PDA button in Odin and select the CF-Auto-Root-p4notewifi-p4notewifiue-gtn8013.tar.md5 file.

Step 7: In Odin, check the Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time options.

Step 8: Click on the START button in Odin to start flashing.

Step 9: After the flashing is done, you will see a PASS message with green background in the left-most box at the top of the Odin. The Galaxy Note 10.1 will restart automatically. Once you see the home screen, you can unplug the tablet from the computer.

To verify whether your Galaxy Note 10.1 is rooted properly, .

Then finally use Triangle Away so that you can receive OTA updates after rooting.

"Many Samsung devices store a flash counter that keeps track of how many times you have flashed custom firmwares to your device. On some devices, a yellow triangle or other sort of visual warning is also displayed during boot if you are running a custom firmware. TriangleAway was built to disable the triangle (if a visual warning is present) and reset the custom ROM flash counter to 0. This app requires root !"

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1494114

This app will allow you to receive OTA updates.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

For some reason I ended up rooted but dont have cwm installed? Does auto reboot need to be unchecked?

Tried it with auto reboot unchecked (in the newest version of odin, 1.85 would not allow me to uncheck it)

Same thing. Rooted, but still not custom recovery. Its like 4.1.2 overwrites the custom recovery.

Root does nto automatically install CWM. These are two separate things.

Would someone please write instructions on how to do this with Heimdall? I don't use Windows at all at home and don't have administrator access elsewhere. I'd really would like to root my shiny new tablet.
