    I have just bought a Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7108 G3 in China (on China Mobile).
    It's a great phone but, being China, there is no Google account available or access to the Play store, etc...
    I believe I need to root the phone in order to install the Google apps. I found the following thread:


    which suggested it could be fairly painless through using SuperOneClick and installing the relevant .apk files, etc.
    However, I couldn't get SuperOneClick to work and now don't think it is the right package to root.
    What is the best way to achieve this? Is it relatively safe? I guess that since I don't need/want to flash a new ROM it shouldn't be too risky?
    Any help would be much appreciated!
