CF-Auto-Root for SG Note 3

I've just uploaded the CF-Auto-Root files for various Note 3 models. This includes the International Exynos (SM-N900), International Qualcomm (SM-N9005) and T-Mobile US models (SM-N900T), and various Asian models.

While this is not known for sure yet, I expect the ATT and Verizon models to have a locked bootloader, and if that is the case there will be no CF-Auto-Root for these models.

Using CF-Auto-Root will trip the KNOX Warranty Void flag, which is not reversable! Triangle Away is not working yet for the other bootloader values either, but I expect it'll be working on the Qualcomm (not Exynos) models soon (but still, it will not reset the KNOX values!)

It's smart to buy a phone that Chainfire works on!

Keep up brother

Michael Hall commented on 2013-10-03 at 23:34:

I will wait a while before I root mine. The phones are new and full of features to keep me entertained for now. I will play it safe and watch the forums for bugs, fixes and updates before I root.

Keep up the excellent work Chainfire +1

Hiwa Barzinc commented on 2013-10-08 at 15:24:

Is there gonna be a fix to this? Sm-n9005 must of em say root deny or root privilege needed
