Easily Root Sprint & T-Mobile Note II without Increasing Flash Counter
The Galaxy Note line has been one of Samsung’s most successful. If you’re a proud owner of this powerhouse behemoth and want to easily root it without tripping its flash counter or switching to another ROM, you’re in luck, provided you’re using the T-Mobile or Sprint variant of the device.
XDA Recognized Contributor mrRobinson has taken the latest stock Odin-flashable factory images for the devices, and injected them with the su binary and SuperSU app, leaving everything else as is. The result is a pure stock ROM, with only root access added. Since nothing else is modified, the flash counter on your device should remain intact.
For those of you who also want a custom recovery, mrRobinson has also provided the method for getting TWRP on the device. Flashing that however will trip your flash counter.
