Another Samsung device ends up rooted today: Galaxy Note 3 LTE SM-N900W8. The actions that lead to this are all a part of this guide.
In order to become a rooted smartphone, a special method has to come into play. This time, its name is SRSRoot. It’s a tool used by many gadget owners and specialists. The qualities which recommend it transform every gadget it’s on into a better one. Your handset is included in the list of products that are fully compatible with this tool. Which, by the way, is free.
The benefits of this procedure
The device that is rooted today came out in October 2013. What made it stand out then were its 2265 MHz CPU and Android 4.3 OS. The processor’s speed has become slower in the meantime. This will change once the SRSRoot makes its home on your phone. Besides applying tweaks to improve the CPU’s overall speed, the freeware delivers a list of new features. Other new stuff to expect from this application: no security problems and options to personalize the device.
To make sure no issues appear during the rooting, grab a Build ID; it doesn’t matter which one. Ours was the following: JSS15J.N900W8VLUBMJ4. The rooting happens smoothly and you won’t be welcomed by bloatware. Instead, your smartphone gets equipped with custom ROMs. The operating system we mentioned will stay on-board. The SRSRoot app offers availability with every Android version. Powered by an SRS Server, the freeware comes with admin / superuser permission. Root-only apps and battery tweaks are also distributed to your smartphone.
By going through a rooting, the handset’s warranty has to suffer. Once you see it becomes revoked, you need to search for a dedicated tutorial. Using it will deliver the warranty back.
If the rooted Galaxy Note 3 LTE SM-N900W8 ends up with an update, issues will come up. They’ll have to do with the root access and the handset’s system partition. The latter will be deleted; the former’s going to be revoked. As always, fortunately, the data and both internal / external SD cards will be spared.
You need requirements before the rooting procedure. So:
- download and then install on the notebook, from here, USB drivers;
- an option called USB Debugging comes with your phone and it needs an activation;
- the creation of backups is absolutely necessary for the handset’s data;
- a full NANDroid backup is also something to be generated;
- Windows needs to be accustomed with the notebook;
- a fully charged battery must be available on the phone;
- the device’s security programs must, for this guide, be turned off;
- the security programs currently activated on the notebook must be disabled.
