Root the Verizon Galaxy Note II with Odin
The Samsung Galaxy Note II has been extremely successful, cashing in on the success of the original Galaxy Note and selling millions of units within weeks of its launch. If you got your hands on the Verizon variant of this 5.5″, quad-core powerhouse and can’t wait to root it, you’re in luck! The device has been rooted, and the method shared with us by XDA Senior Member droidstyle, with credits to XDA Recognized Contributors mrRobinson and Beanstown101.
What’s even better is that the method doesn’t require any exploits or commands. As with rooting most Samsung devices, it involves downloading the stock rooted Odin-flashable image for the carrier-branded Note 2 and flashing it to the device in download mode. Once flashed, you’ll have a rooted Note 2.
You can find the complete method and the relevant download links in the forum thread.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
