How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 SM-P601 on Android 5.1.1 [Guide]

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-10.1-2014Geeks love mobile devices, but one problem people from all areas of the globe collectively complain about is battery life. We never seem to get the battery life we want, or expect, from a device that is being made anywhere relative to the year 2016. We as a species are great at a lot of things, battery life is not one of them. It’s said that our inability to create longer lasting batteries is not just effecting our devices, but really our technological advancements on the whole. Electric cars are another obvious area where we struggle to create anything that makes us say shut up and take my money.

Appreciatively, there are some applications out there which can help us solve some of our battery woes without anything needing to be done to the battery itself. Many people look past the idea of running additional apps on our devices to help us with battery life, since apps themselves are usually a key contributor in making our devices head to the charger sooner than they normally would. However, applications out there like Greenify are household names to expert geeks because they work. You can install the Greenify application on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 after you root it using the guide after the break.
