Samsung Galaxy flagship devices have plenty of 4.1.2 firmware options to root these days. One of them is the DDUCMA2 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Official Firmware update for Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000, featuring multi window 4.2 keyboard with Swipe and the new customizable notification panel. The official firmware is available for Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 owners from any country.
Here is how to root DDUCMA2 on your Galaxy Note so you can have total control of your device afterwards:
2. Extract your downloaded zip file CF-Auto-Root-p4noterf-p4noterfxx-gtn8000.zip, to get .tar.md5 file under it.
3. Extract your downloaded zip file ODIN.zip so you can get the ODIN v3.07.exe (executable file) along with other files within it.
4. Turn off your device and wait 5 to 6 seconds until it vibrates to confirm it is completely turned off.
5. Switch your Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 device into Download Mode by pressing and holding down the Home and Volume Down buttons simultaneously with the Power button. Doing so will prompt you with a Warning! Screen.
6. Press the Volume Down key again, to proceed and enter Download Mode.
7. Run the ODIN executable file (ODIN v3.07.exe) as an Administrator for you to get Admin privileges. This is important to complete the process smoothly.
8. Connect your Galaxy Note to your PC using a USB cable. A new message saying “Added!” will show up from ODIN’s message box in the bottom left of the screen. If you don’t see the message, then you have to retry connecting both devices using another USB port. If it still doesn’t show the message, then you have to re-install the driver. Another indication that the devices are successfully connected besides the “Added!” message is the COM port with a number in Yellow. After seeing this and the “Added!” message from ODIN, you may now proceed to the next step.
9. Inside ODIN, select the CF-Auto-Root-p4noterf-p4noterfxx-gtn8000.tar.md5 file. Do this by clicking on the PDA button and choose the file.
10. Be sure to put a check on the Auto Reboot and F. ResetTime checkboxes in the ODIN window.
11. Verify every prior step is done correctly and hit the START button. This will initiate the flashing process.
12. Wait until the flashing is completed. If so, your device will reboot automatically and then you should see a PASS message with green background soon after the reboot. You will find the PASS message in the left-most box located at the top-most part of the ODIN window.
13. After seeing the PASS message, disconnect your Galaxy Note from your computer by unplugging the USB cable.
