Dear Mr Outler,

You are a true Genius; I'm so glad you're not working behind some useless 'Bar' attending to technically challenged people who need help setting up some sort of account so they can then sync their phones to a desktop or laptop (for it to work at all).

I had my very own 'No You' Verizon (F' You Verizon) moment last month when they pushed out 4.1.2. Since I had not yet rooted my G Note 2 and was on stock 4.1.1, I knew that the update to 4.1.2 would include a patch to prevent root (albeit temporarily).
I did what any self-respecting techy' would do in this situation:
1. I immediately pulled out the battery to stop the update.
2. When that didn't work, I pulled out the SIM card.
3. Executed "Back Atcha": success!!
4. Connected to Wi-Fi to install Root Checker; bought Root Explorer; renamed those three little pesky system files (I know I could've have Frozen in TB Pro but, just wanted to rename. Besides, TB Pro didn't bring up all the pesky files); "lost" my phone on the train and HAD to put in an insurance claim, so, now I've got a spare (1 Rooted; 1 UnRooted); so, F' You VZW control freaks and Thank U Adam Outler for being the True Genius that you are.

Sincerely

I purchased a Verizon Galaxy Note 2 from a guy off of craigslist. I tested the phone with my sim card but once I reached home I noticed it would constantly go into a demo mode. I flashed the phone with root66 but it came back up with NO SERVICE. Now I have been trying to use this casual crack so I can eventually put on another radio. Is there a way to unlock the bootloader of my phone without using casual as its failing.

It didn't work for me. I tried twice. The second run went further than the first but it just outright quit the second time. Here's the log:

Your antivirus is blocking the program from working. I use Microsoft essentials and the same thing happened to me. I just disabled the antivirus, ran noyouverizon (it worked), and then re enabled my antivirus.

Maybe I posted the output in the wrong place and pissed someone off cus I still haven't heard anything back. I'd love to root this sob. I'm not completely ignorant either, this is literally the only phone I have failed to root. If someone could advise I'd appreciate it a lot. I was going to donate but not now :-\ (if I can actually be helped I would. I support all devs that I find to have a good product)

Thank you djones! I had thought of that but when I checked avg is was expired and didn't havean ooption to turn it off. I guess I'll just uninstall it altogether and try again. Thanks again!

Now rooted. Thank you again DJones! (didn't even realize the wife's comp had the Essential program.) I don't use anything but my phone anymore so windows is rarely used by me unless it's necessary like in this case

I'm rooted! This is great! Much less intimidating. Now what!?? So many options.

The problem I'm having is now that I'm rooted my PC can't see my GN2 when I plug it in. I want to try installing a custom ROM, but how can I do that if I can't access my hard drive? Is this a setting I need to change or a different driver I need on my PC?
