Verizon may claim that the Galaxy Note II is a very secure device on their network, but it obviously wasn’t secure enough, as XDA member Adam Outler has managed to hack the device and reveal a method on how to unlock the bootloader on Verizon’s Galaxy Note II. The process is quite simple actually, and if you’ve ever used or hacked a Samsung device in the past yourself, you’ll probably be really familiar with this. Flashing three files through ODIN will easily do the trick.
If you aren’t familiar with the process of rooting and flashing a device, asking for a little help on the XDA forums won’t hurt. Most people over there are usually willing to help get your device(s) rooted and flashed with a ROM of your choice. There are also quite a few tutorials on rooting and flashing as well, so you may want to give those a look before rooting Verizon’s variant of the Galaxy Note II. Also remember to be extremely careful before rooting. It is extremely easy to mess up once and completely destroy your $299 smartphone. Since your warranty will be voided, there isn’t a way to get the device back unless you buy a new one at full price.
