Root Samsung Galaxy NoteIt was just mere few days back that the Samsung has unveiled its 5.3 inched monster Galaxy Note, but now in the due course of the article we will check out on how to root the Galaxy note. Just in case if you wanted to know then there are various benefits of rooting as it allows you to customize the device. Last time we saw on Android Advices on how you can easily update your devices with the latest versions of Gingerbread which is XXKJ1 as well as the XXKJ4 and if you are any one of these versions or say if you are on the Stock version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 in your Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 then this procedure is for you.

To check on which Android version, you can check the same from the path Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version where you will find the version of Android OS where it will show 2.3.5 version and not any other version like 2.3.7 etc. as this rooting procedure only supports the firmwares which are on Gingerbread 2.3.7 version. Please note that this procedure can only be applied to only  Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 devices and not to any of the other Android devices.

Rooting Information:

    when I applied this root it crashed my phone. It just keeps on rebooting. also I have noticed it keeps a count of how many times a custom binary download is done.

    Hopefully downloading the xxkj4 file will restore it
