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.

Automation The first is...

It has now been seen that Android M will receive a new app drawer as part of the stock launcher. The first four icons you will see in your drawer now will be automatically updated to represent your recently used applications.
