I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8013EAYXAR).

I have tried literally everything, and I am at a loss. I have tried SuperOneClick which didn't even come CLOSE to working. I tried using Odin which seemed promising, so I went with it and kept trying. I tried stuff that was downloaded. I tried converting the official CWM to a tar.md5 (this made Odin crash). I tried adb methods (maybe I'm doing something wrong).

All I ever get is the factory recovery. I can't run Titanium Backup (or really any other decent apps) without su.

Please help. I'm at a loss here.


If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and are looking to root, here are some useful links.

This is the post where I found the link to the superuser file that is to be flashed via Odin. The post describes the process. NOTE: You do not need to flash CWM to get root.

Here is the link to the actual su file that has been prepared for use with the Odin utility.

Hope this helps anyone that gets caught up in the process of rooting their Note 10.1. =)

    Please don't post link-only answers, if the link changes the answer is useless. At least, paraphrase the solution into the answer so that the answer is helpful even without the link. Commented Mar 8, 2013 at 8:38
