As you know, the Samsung Galaxy Note II has only been available on Big Red’s network for a week now, making itself one of the last carriers to release the device. With it only being out a week, the device has already been rooted. Like just about every other Samsung phone though, rooting the device will require you to use ODIN to flash a rooted image file. Unlike the many other versions of the Galaxy Note II, there are actually quite a few bugs in this one. The Note II’s signal indicator is pretty much broken, but data connectivity still works. On top of all of that, some users are reporting that it’s not as fast as the stock image. Regardless of all the bugs it has, there is no doubt that they will all be fixed in the next few weeks or so. I mean, the Verizon version has only been out for a week and stuff like this takes a lot of time to get working correctly.

Keep in mind that the bootloader is still locked on the Note II, so there aren’t any custom ROMs to download just yet. It shouldn’t be too long before some genius comes alone has a way to bypass the bootloader.

If you own Verizon’s Galaxy Note II, just hit the source link below to start rooting it! Keep in mind that there are risks when rooting it, and The Droid Guy isn’t responsible for your actions during the rooting process.
