Did you happen to lose root or still have not yet rooted after updating the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon to build VRAMC3? Developers released an updated rooting method for the device over the weekend, easily working its way around VZW’s OTA patch. Running the program is extremely simple as it is completely automated and just takes a couple of clicks if you are running Windows 7. It is also available for Windows 8, Linux and Mac users, so it should be a fun and easy process. (more…)
Welcome to Custom ROM Friday. Today, we are featuring CleanROM for the Galaxy Note 2 from developer scrosler. There is only so many ways to describe a custom ROM, so who better to sum up their work than the developer themselves?

With all of the happy news floating around that developers unlocked the re-locked bootloader on Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2, we thought we should point out that nightlies for CyanogenMod 10.1 are now up!

I don’t have to explain what all CM brings to your device, right? To sum it up, it’s vanilla Android with many enhancements on top. (more…)
When Verizon released a surprise update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that was listed as nothing more than a “security patch,” we knew it meant only one thing – they had locked the bootloader again. Since then, users who updated early have been waiting patiently for some of the Samsung devs to work a little magic. That time has now come. (more…)
And just like that, the Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 2 has been rooted. The process doesn’t look all that painful. Basically, you download Odin, some drivers, and a rooted Odin VRLAJB file to be flashed. It’s all of 10 steps, most of which are basic Odin and driver instructions.
No custom recovery is available, to my knowledge, but that will likely change. Hit up the source link below to get the step-by-step guide and files.
