How-to: Easily root and unlock your Verizon Galaxy Note II with "No You Verizon"

How-to: Easily root and unlock your Verizon Galaxy Note II with "No You Verizon"
Last month, we reported that Verizon started to roll-out the newest software update for their Samsung Galaxy Note II. This was a pretty hefty update at 245MB, but finally brought the device to Android 4.1.2 with all of its enhancements.

Unfortunately, if you're device happened to be rooted, once the new software update was installed (VRAMC3) it would no longer be rooted.

It took a few weeks, but the guru AdamOutler over on XDA literally stuck it to Verizon with the newest version of his Casual rooting program called "No You Verizon".

The directions are pretty straight forward, as it involves downloading the Casual program to your PC, and making sure USB Debugging is enabled on your phone. Connect the Note II to the PC, run Casual and follow the on-screen directions. In the matter of minutes your phone will be rooted and have the bootloader unlocked. This will also install the TWRP boot-recovery on the Note II at the same time, but if you want to use ClockWorkMod Recovery, you can get it from here.

Here is a YouTube video that DroidModd3rX posted to show how easy it is to root and unlock the Note II.
