      Howdy, Chief. How are you liking your Note 8? Is it going to be rootable, do you think?

        Absolutely not! The Verizon Samsung flagships have had encrypted bootloaders since the Note 3! For the Note 3, we had SafeStrap to boot around the bootloader and run ROMs... but that's abandonware now. So maybe the international version will be rootable... but the Verizon version? Not a prayer

      It's killing me that it's the eve of the Note 4 being presented and the forums are dead. As we talked about before, nothing will compare to that nexus anticipation. Regardless, I'm excited for tomorrow. Here's to it being a good day.

      P.S.
      Hope you're doing well.

      Couldn't have said it better myself. Now come on Verizon! :)

      Hey Chief,
      As I noticed with the note 2 room, the note 3 forum just cannot compare to the activity we had with the Galaxy Nexus. Lol.
      Hope you are well.

      Chief: Hope all is well. I was wondering if you would share your superwipe zip? Haven't used it but would love to try it out.

      Alrighty! I just chose the "Reboot Into Recovery" Option from the ROM manager, it's creating a nandroid backup right now!

      I couldn't have done it without you, Thank you so much!

      I'm going to install a custom ROM now... I hope you don't mind if I ask you a question if I get stuck.


      Once again, Thank you so much!!

      Regarding the post you made on my topic about not being able to make a Nandroid backup.. I flashed Clockwork, you said then flash SPRecovery... I don't see the option. I saw "Flash Alternate Recovery" and it said below it "SPRecovery 0.993b." I'm flashing that atm. Then I'll flash Clockwork again.

      Then you said to boot into recovery by turning on phone and holding X... Then you said "Just make sure CMRecovery "stuck" " What does that mean?

      Btw, Greetings from south-east TN ^_^.

      Thanks for your help.
