      Hi,

      I have a Note 2 N7100 Android 4.4.2 Build no. KOT49H.N7100XXUFNL1 baseband ver. N7100DDUFND1. Can I just follow the procedure for updating to Lollipop? Is rooting not necessary to do this procedure? Any risk of bricking the phone? If so possibility of recovery if any?

      Sorry for the too many questions. I am just curious and also worried to try. Your valuable inputs would help me. Thanks in advance.
