Verizon Galaxy Note 2 rooted | Android Central. Even the FutureLawyer isn't going to risk rooting the Galaxy Note II yet. I know, I am always the first to use a new exploit for a new phone. However, this initial effort has some bugs; and, I am going to wait until a method becomes available that doesn't involve flashing a complete ROM. It is good to know that the community is working on it. It is likely that you will be able to root, unlock, and flash Clockwork Mod Recovery in a little while. Root on.
