How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 SM-P600 on Android 5.1.1 [Guide]

samsung-galaxy-note-10-1-2014If you plan on flashing a slew of times during  your tenure with a rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 10, we recommend you check out the Flashify application to help you with your flashing needs. Flashing makes flashing from your custom recovery very easy and efficient, allowing you to set up queues of files for flashing so they can repeatedly flash by themselves without you having to load each one. Flashify works well with zip files, boot images, custom kernels, any mods, recovery images and anything else you generally want to flash when tinkering with the operating system.


  • The following guide is made for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition running on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update. The guide should work for all versions of the SM-P600 running on Android 5.1.1, regardless of your firmware build number.


  • Enable the USB Debugging Mode from the Settings on your Galaxy Note 10.1 device by tapping on the Menu > Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging Mode.


  1. Download the updated CF-Auto-Root file for the Note 10.1 P600 from here.
  2. Drag the file from the default downloads folder over to the desktop.
  3. Right-click the mouse over the file and choose the “extract here” option from the menu.
  4. You will see the Odin flash tool and the rooting files in the same folder, right-click the Odin and choose to run it is an administrator.
  5. Boot the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in download mode and then connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
  6. Wait for a few seconds and then click the AP button you see from the Odin user-interface.
  7. Upload the rooting file for the Note 10.1 ending in the tar.md5 extension.
  8. Do not many any adjustments to the default settings you can see from the Odin user-interface.
  9. Click the Start button and the Odin flashing app will now root your device with the CF-Auto-Root package.
  10. Wait until you get the pass message from the Odin user-interface and your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 device then reboots directly to recovery mode where it will finish the job.

In conclusion, that’s how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 SM-P600 running on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software update. Any device that does not boot into recovery mode after the flashing competes will need to reach the recovery mode manually before the rooting guide will have worked.

    Sorry please explain number 7 I didn’t get it. If you could upload a video to youtube and send me a link. Thanks.

    Hi Tom,

    Now that CyanogenMod is gone, most people prefer flashing LineageOS. Some of the guys from CyanogenMod are now making new ROMs under the LineageOS name.

    Apart from LOS, anything that is getting plenty of downloads is usually a good indication of what’s going to be worthwhile. The XDA-Developers forum has how many downloads a ROM has gotten on the front page before you enter the thread for it.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Ryouma,

    Hi Rene,

    I’m not sure why I wrote that at the end. It was a while ago.

    Don’t worry about the part that mentions recovery mode. The device should be rooted as soon as it reboots after the flashing is complete. You can tell when the flashing is complete by watching the device’s screen. The developer has programmed it, so it shows you what is happening.

    If the file isn’t working at the moment, it means the developer needs to update it. You can let him know by leaving a message on the CF-Auto-Root tool thread at XDA.

    But if you do want to try getting into recovery mode after the flashing, you need to hold the Volume Up + Power + Home keys at the same time, and the time you want to do it is as soon as it goes to reboot after the flashing.

    I followed the steps but my device does not boot to recovery mode. You say I should reach it manually. How do I do that?

  • Ryouma

    Worked perfectly! Thanks for making everything so simple

  • Tom McManus

    Can you recommend a good ROM for the galaxy 10.1 sm-p600 model now that cyanogenmod is out of the game?

  • Kormos Lajos

    just an addition to 5.: Your device is completely switched off. “Boot the
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet in download mode” (hold down volume down
    + power on buttons at the same time for some seconds) A warning message appears but just continue.
    Then some message incl. “downloading” appears, dont wait just connect
    your device to your computer via USB cable.

    Would the proper software to root a SM-P05 running under Android 5.1.1 be available from you? Or, would you know where I could get it?
