How to Root Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

It’s been hardly a day since Samsung released its Galaxy Note 10.1 and the root is achieved on the tablet already. So this news will definitely excite you if you have just got your hands on the Galaxy Note 10.1. The rooting method uses ODIN to flash the ROM therefore this method could go for all the variants of the Galaxy Note 10.1.Though the developer have tested on the International GT-N8000 variant (European, Brazilian, Saudi Arabian, UAE) of the firmware so if you have any variant other than that then you probably should wait a while as the developer has promised to make the rooted firmwares for other variants of the tablet as well so they will soon be available for sure.

The developer actually added the subinary, busybox and chainfire’s SuperSU in the official stock firmware of the tablet so obviously that doesn’t make it a full custom ROM but rooting can be helpful in that state where you rather don’t want to lose any installed apps or settings. And the good thing is that it doesn’t ticks up your flash counter as you still are using custom kernel and hence you will be able to receive official updates released from the manufacturer.

The method is quite conventional, first reboot into the download mode then connect your tablet with PC using data cable. After that launch ODIN and load the rooted firmware’s tar file into ODIN and then finally flash it to your tablet. Though here’s a video tutorial that will guide you through the rooting process:
