The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an extremely powerful and desirable device with a crystal clear WQXGA display and lots of clever software additions by Samsung. Now, for those of you lucky enough to own it comes an easy way to root your new tablet, via legendary developer Chainfire.
Of course, as with any rooting guide; we’re not responsible for any badness that happens if something goes wrong whilst following these instructions. That said, root access is relatively easy to obtain and worth the risk if you’re into tweaking or generally getting the most out of your devices. Read on if you’re still interested.
Also, another disclaimer – you’ll need a PC with Odin on it. Sorry, Mac users.
Firstly, you’ll have to download p600Autoroot.7z from the Mega servers. Put your Note 10.1 into download mode, either by turning the tablet off and then holding volume down + power, or by plugging the device into command prompt and typing adb reboot download.
Next, you’ll have to flash autorootp600mj4.tar.mdt with Odin. Place the file into the AP slot and don’t mess around with any other settings before hitting start.
It’s basically as simple as that. The tablet will now be rooted, and you’ll have to flash the stock mj4 recovery provided (or perhaps a custom recovery of your choice) and then you can get to enjoying full root on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
Another excellent and fast root method by Chainfire with a little help from beanstown106. If you can, head over to the XDA thread for more info and to express your gratitude to these two great developers.
If you’ve successfully followed this method, let us know!
