How to root Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9008 on Android 4.4.2 [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 [1]Rooting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone when it is running on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat software updates can be done by flashing a one-click rooting tool called CF-Auto-Root. The way CF-Auto-Root works is a touch of genius. The rooting tool is programmed to install a modified recovery and then flash and enable the SuperSU. It then removes its modified recovery image and reflashes the stock recovery that was running before it started, so you are left with the same recovery and SuperSU enabled. It is the SuperSU that is going to give you the chance to become the root user.
