Flashing/Rooting a Samsung Galaxy Note III SM-N900X
I bought a samsung note iii sm-900x from abroad and I haven't received it yet. The is the retail edition. It means that it does not have gsm and gps antennas. Its rom has been modified buy samsung so that it does not have lockscreen, the display doesn't turn off or something and various other problems. In order to use it like a wifi only tablet I have to flash it or root it (I don't understand much about phones) to a modified android os designed to make the demo version usable like a normal tablet.
I don't know much about flashing or rooting. Does anyone have a good amount of experience for rooting, flashing etc?? How do I do it.
I read about this situation from this forum http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2548761 but the instructions are too complicated for me....Some help will be greatly appreciated.
What the hell is odin??...This rooting/flashing thing is totally new to me..so please give instructions like you would to a 6 year old.
Before I rooted my phone I went to xda forum and read different threads for 3-4 days before rooting my device. Having someone who rooted their Samsung android would be a added bonus but I think you will learn of a wide range of problems and solutions from the forums.
you should try to learn it first hand from someone instead of learning from forums. You know you dont want to brick an expensive mobile for nothing
But once you learn it, it is very easy.
What happens when a phone gets "bricked"? Rom er ki data incomplete thake?
Ok..suppose I do brick it. Shouldn't there be a way to repair a bricked phone.??
