Root A Galaxy Note 2
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and you have installed the update to Android 4.3, you may have noticed that – if you had root access, you’ve now lost it.
If you’ve never rooted your device, you should consider it. Rooting gives you full control over your device and lets you install custom ROMs, custom recoveries, tweaks, mods and kernals.
Follow along with our guide below to gain root access on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that has been updated to Android 4.3 XXUEMK4 Jelly Bean.
