The new Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 is so easy to root that the method for doing so was discovered almost instantly after the announcement of the new tablet. What’s involved? Not much actually, and the best part is that rooting the way mentioned below will still allow you to get OTA updates.

The method for rooting, as mentioned below, was first posted by RootGalaxyNote.com, and specifically injects European firmware. If you aren’t from this region, you can still install this without an issue, as long as it doesn’t bother you that your device will now appear as a European device instead of your native country model.

With that in mind, here are the steps involved:

Step 1: Hold down power and volume buttons together for about 15 seconds to launch into ODIN downloadable mode. When the warning screen pops up, hit the volume up button.

Step 2: Connect a Galaxy Note USB cable to your computer.

Step 3: Now you’ll need to download ODIN and the XXLGA Stock European Firmware. Unzip both files, you should get a folder with two files for ODIN and another file that ends in “.tar”.

Step 4: You should see a yellow box with a random number, if you don’t you’ll need the Samsung USB drivers. Download and install these, then unplug/plug your Note 10.1 back in and the yellow box should be there.

Step 7: Hit the “PDA” button and choose the stock ROM file ending in “.tar” and hit “Start”.

Step 8: You Note 10.1 will not start updating with the special root injected ROM. If it fails, reboot into the ODIN mode and try again.

Step 9: Once “Pass!” is displayed, everything is done and the system reboot.

That’s all that is involved, pretty straightforward. If you need more help or tips for installing, check out Root Galaxy Note.com.
