How to root Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605

Hey, what’s up? Pro Geeks here with another step-by-step Android root guide for Verizon variant of the Galaxy Note 2 running on 4.4.2 Kitkat.

I saw many users were complaining having their devices bricked or stuck at logo screen using Cf-auto root method. ChainfireXda developer has updated the root kernel, and you can gain root access using Odin without any issues. Please keep in mind that rooting your phone using this method will void its warranty as it trips Knox counter.

  • Further hit the Volume Up button to continue.

Step 3: Connect your device to PC.

Step 4: You don’t need to mess with the Odin default settings.

Step 5: Now click on the AP/PDA button (depending on Odin version), browse and select the CF-auto root kernel file and hit the START to flash the kernel.

Step 6: Wait for Odin to flash the autoroot kernel. Once done you should get a PASS!! green labelled message in Odin and at this stage your phone will automatically reboots.

Step 7: Once normally booted, check that SuperSU has been installed. To verify root access, Open Google Play app on your phone and install “Root Checker“. Once installed run to make sure your phone is rooted.
