The Samsung Galaxy Note has recently received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update but as the device already seems to be aging, rooting it seems to be the only aid. For those who have already rooted their device on previous firmwares, we have posted the tutorial to get the official stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on their devices. Again, it should be clear to your that your previous root tools won’t work on the new set of firmware. Meanwhile, we have these new set of files which’ll help you get your phone rooted over the updated firmware.
If you’re familiar with the traditional method of pushing files into your phone’s file system via Odin, this one would be as easy as a pie for your while for those who are new to this, we are here to guide you anyways.[box_light]Before you proceed with the installation, we recommend you to backup all data on your phone. To make backups easily, you can read our complete backup guide. If you do not have device drivers installed, you can download them here. We are not responsible for any damage your device might face with this guide – the chances in this case are very less though.[/box_light]
Root Samsung Galaxy Note on UBLSF Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
Download Odin and Root Kernel N7000UBLSF to your computer. Extract the contents of the downloaded zip file(for Odin). Now turn off your device and boot it into download mode. To do this, press volume down button and power button together till you see the Warning screen and then press the volume up button to log in into the download mode. Open Odin.exe(from the files extracted above) and connect your device to the PC via USB Cable. Before your proceed, make sure the ID:Com section in Odin turns yellow. If not, you need to check your device drivers. Now click on the PDA button in Odin and select the PhilZ-cwm6-UBLSF-UBB-4.87.6.tar.md5 file. Hit the Start button and wait till the software flashes the package file onto your phone’s file system.
Done with that, wait for a moment(it can even take two sometimes!) till your phone boots up and the homescreen flashes up. If your phone booted up successfully, check for the SuperSU/Superuser icon in the application drawer. If you have one, your phone has been rooted successfully! You can also try the Root Checker app(Downloadable from the play store) to check the Root status of your device.
