Before We Begin

Download the Galaxy Mega 6.3 drivers and install them onto your PC (if you haven’t done so already). The Galaxy Mega 6.3 USB drivers can be found at this link [2].

Have your micro USB cable handy.

To perform this root, two files will need to be downloaded. The first of which is Odin, a tool we’ll use to flash the root onto your device. Download Odin here [3].

Extract the Odin file to a folder onto your Desktop.

The second file that needs to be downloaded is the root package file itself. Do not extract it. The root package can be downloaded here [4]. Move the file into the folder that you previously extracted Odin into.
