Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page.

You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.


Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.


To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SM-P605!

Do not use the procedures discussed here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. This is not for any other variant of NOTE 10.1 either, so don’t try this on SM-P600 or SM-P601. You have been warned!


Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.



You must have proper and working driver installed on your windows computer to be able to successfully root your Samsung Galaxy NOTE 10.1.

In case you’re not sure, follow the link below for a definitive guide for installing driver for your Samsung device on your computer.

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing the CF Auto Root, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  3. Double-click the Odin3-v1.85.exe file to open Odin.

  5. Connect your Galaxy NOTE 10.1 to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box. If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:
    • Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy NOTE 10.1 as said above in ‘Before you begin..’ section.
    • If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and reinstall back.
    • Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
    • Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your phone should work best, if not, try any other cable that’s new and of good quality.
    • Reboot phone and PC and then try again.
  6. Load the firmware file (extracted in Step 1) into Odin as instructed below:
    • Click on the PDA button on Odin and select the CF-Auto-Root-lt03lte-lt03ltexx-smp605.tar.md5 file (from step 1). Your Odin window should look like the screenshot below:

NOTE: It may happen that your phone doesn’t automatically boot into recovery and root your phone. In that case follow the following above procedure except that in Step 7, Auto Reboot option is un-checked and then the instructions below:

  • Pull out the battery and re-insert it.
  • Boot your Samsung Galaxy NOTE 10.1 into Recovery Mode: Press and hold these 3 buttons together: Volume Up + Power + Home.
  • Now, this will start the rooting process and will reboot the phone automatically when the process is done.

    What about tnox

    • It will trigger KNOX, and thus will result in warranty getting void.

    • KNOX gets triggered, meaning Warranty is void.

  • Hong Wei Tay

    What about stock recovery? I’m quite new to this and I read somewhere about something on stock recovery and I don’t see any here. What is it actually?

    • CF Root keeps your stock recovery. It doesn’t changes it.

      • Hong Wei Tay

        Oh, so it means I can continue to get official updates? Thanks!
        Also, I am unable to check the “F. Reset Time” box as it is greyed out, is that okay?

        • Yes, you can get OTA updates. As, stock recovery is retained, and is untouched. You may lose root, which you can get again by using cf root.

          • Hong Wei Tay

            Okay. But what about the greyed out option? I can’t check the “F. Reset Time” box as it cannot be selected.

          • It’s okay. No worries.

          • Hey, btw, you might face problems in receiving OTA updates. I know I said you could but I misred. Actually, you can get official updates via Samsung’s Kies software. But not OTA (over-the-air) updates.
