Requirements

Before We Begin

Before starting off with the guide, get yourself ready with the following:

  • Download and install Samsung Galaxy Note 3 drivers (if you haven’t done so already). Restart your PC after the driver installation.
  • Download Root_de_la_Vega.7z (2.2GB file) to your computer. Extract this file to obtain 5 files (Root_de_la_Vega.zip, Root_de_la_Vega.tar, N900AUCUBMI1_OneClickBin.exe, Odin3 v3.09.exe, and Odin3.ini).

How To Root AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3

  • Remove the external sdcard, in case you have one.
  • Switch off the device.
  • Take out the battery and the USB cable (if its already plugged in).
  • Wait for about 10 seconds and re-insert the battery.
  • Boot into Download Mode by keeping the ‘Volume Down’, ‘Home’ and ‘Power’ buttons pressed (Volume Down + Home + Power), until you see a Warning! screen. Then, press the ‘Volume Up’ button to enter Download mode.
  • Open the file N900AUCUBMI1_OneClickBin.exe, which you had extracted earlier.
  • Plug-in the device to your computer using a USB cable.
  • After you plug-in the device, the box at the top of Odin (the application you just ran), will turn yellow and the message ‘Added’ should appear in the message box in Odin.
  • Click Start and wait for the process to finish.
  • Wait till your device restarts.
  • Plug out the USB cable.
  • Enter into Download Mode again, as earlier.
  • Now, open the file Odin3 v3.09.exe.
  • Connect the device to your computer.
  • Now, the first box at the top of Odin, i.e, ID:COM will turn yellow and the message ‘Added’ should appear in the message box in Odin.
  • On the Odin window, click on ‘AP‘ and select the file ‘Root_de_la_Vega.tar‘.
  • Take care not to change any other setting.
  • Click on the Start button to start the flashing.
  • Wait till the process finishes and “PASS” status is displayed in Odin.
  • Wait for the device to reboot.
  • Extract the contents of Root_de_la_Vega.zip to obtain:
    • root_de_la_vega.sh
    • root_files (folder)
  • Copy these 2 files to the ROOT of your device’s internal sdcard.
  • Restart your device.
  • After your device has restarted successfully, delete the 2 files which you had just placed in the root of your device’s internal sdcard.
  • Now, restart your device again to complete the rooting process!
  • You may now insert back your external sdcard.

Conclusion

Enjoy your rooted sweet AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3!

    [@Godwin] Thanks for the response. I couldn’t find anything for rooting the ATT SM-900A either for Mac. It seems I’m stuck until the developers work to set something up. Last year ( ATT Note “2”) they had a Mac routine that was up beginning October and it worked brilliantly! I sure hope you’re right and it comes soon. So dependent on the altruism of the expert programmers that tackle this challenge…[@Godwin] [@Godwin] [@Godwin] [@Godwin] [@Godwin] [@Godwin]

    Thanks for the response. I couldn’t find anything either yet for the Mac so I’m stuck for now. Last year the Note “2” had a Mac method to root at beginning of October. Sure hope you’re right and it comes soon! I’m on full standby until then…
