How To Root Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Extract the rooting package you had downloaded earlier.
- Make sure the device is disconnected from your computer.
- Open the file Odin3-vX.X.exe.
- On the Odin window, click on the PDA button.
- Choose the file CF-Auto-Root-….tar.md5 (the filename would depend on your device model), which you had extracted earlier.
- Turn off the device.
- 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.
- Connect the device to your computer via a USB cable.
- Do not make any other changes and make sure that the ‘Repartition‘ option is not selected.
- Click the Start button to start the rooting process.
- Wait for the device to reboot.
- If the device didn’t boot into Recovery mode and the rooting didn’t take place, just try repeating the steps again.
- If it still doesn’t get rooted, untick ‘Auto-Reboot‘ in Odin and then after flashing, take out the battery, wait for some time and re-insert the battery, and boot into recovery mode manually by pressing the Volume Down + Home + Power key combo. This should do the job.
- Congrats! If everything went fine, you should be having a rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in your hand!
