CASUAL for Verizon Galaxy Note II Receives Major Update

Verizon Galaxy Note II owners may remember our previous article on the work of XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler and Recognized Developer Ralekdev, which used CASUAL to automatically unlock, root, and install a custom recovery on the device. While the previous iteration was pretty much completely automated when run on Linux, running the tool on Windows meant that some users were required to finish off the process manually using ODIN. This has been addressed, and the process is now completely automated for Windows users and also greatly improved for Mac users.

If you aren’t familiar with CASUAL, it stands for Cross-platform ADB Scripting, Universal Android Loader. The CASUAL scripting language is wrapped in JAR files, allowing various hacks and exploits to be deployed quickly and safely on various platforms. If a serious issue arises, the script will do the decent thing and direct you to a support page instead of fobbing you off with an error message. And if the scripts themselves are outdated, they will be brought up to date automatically.

If you have a bone stock Verizon Note II and wish to begin modding it, this is without doubt the quickest and safest way to go about it. Simply enable USB debugging, connect your device, and run the CASUAL application. Providing you already have Java installed, everything will pretty much take care of itself. Just in case you don’t believe how easy this is, here’s some proof in video form courtesy of DroidModd3rX.

Check out the development thread for more info on unlocking this device.
