Getting Started to Unroot Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Check and confirm what Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition model version you have.
There are three types of Galaxy Note 2014 Edition and you can easily figure out which one you have by checking its model number printed at the back behind the battery. You can also check it by hitting on Menu>>Settings>> About Device,  then look for the model number. Here are the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition variants:

  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition WiFi only SM-P600
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition 3G SM-P601
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition LTE version SM-P605 and SM-P605M.

We need that so we don’t messed-up the device since we are about to install the stock firmware here and each model variants uses a different firmware builds.

Check your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014  Android version

You may also need to determine your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition running Android OS version.  The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 basically runs on  Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) when released but then an Android 4.4.2 KitKat has been released later.  Now if you have an upgraded to  Android 4.4.2 KitKat and then rooted, you cannot actually return back to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Without knowing this is very crucial on some part, because in later software updates Samsung has added some security measures which is hidden inside your phone’s ecosystem. One of these is the “KNOX” security platform, that once being triggered it will automatically set your device into custom, and void your phone’s warranty.  But if you have gone this far, and you have already rooted or modified your device, you might already tripped the “KNOX” security counter.  But this method will not worked to reset for that KNOX counter, this will only restore your device from rooted or custom to official state.

To check your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014  software build version is too very easy, you can simply navigate from your phone’s home screen then simply tap Menu>>Settings>>About Device.Then look for the text field that says “Android version”,  it might have the 4.3 or 4.4.2 OS.

Now, once knowing the correct Android version from your phone, this will save us time and get rid of any unwanted errors. As I already mentioned that the latest Android updates already equipped with high security configurations.

Download stock firmware file for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Again, grab the 4.3 stock firmware if your Galaxy Note  10.1 2014 Edition’s runs on rooted 4.3, but you can also update that to the official 4.4.2 KitKatfirmware later on, if you want to as long you are already running on pure 4.3 firmware.  And for those with rooted 4.4.2 KitKat, you only grab the official 4.4.2 KitKat firmware and please DO NOT ever Odin-back the 4.3 firmware.

From these step it’s also been crucial if you just grab any firmware package without knowing which one is the correct version to choose. So that is why I want you to know the correct Android version first.  Now, let say  if you have a rooted version of Android 4.3 Jelly bean then you may only restore your device to the official Android 4.3firmware. Same as it goes if you also have a rooted Android 4.4.2 KitKat, then you may also only restores back your phone to the official 4.4.2 KitKat.  If you already on 4.4.2, you cannot actually downgrade back to the old software updates like 4.3, mark my word don’t do it.

These Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Edition 2014 Firmware list will be updated if and when there are new stock firmware available.  I highly recommend to always get the latest update as it includes bug-fixes and system improvements.

Getting Started With The Unroot Procedures

  • Fully Recharge the Phone.
  • First thing first , fully recharge your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition battery before engaging into flashing process.
  • Back-up all Important Files.
  • During the unroot process it deletes all of your files that are stored from your phone’s internal memory.  So make sure to make a back-up copy from all of it and save it in a very safe place.
  • Follow this guide: How to Back-up and Restore Files on Galaxy Note 3
  • Enable USB debugging mode if you are having issues connecting your device to the computer try to enable the this option. In your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, go to Settings>> About device>> then look for the firmware build number and then tap that build number for around 7-times  (e.g. on 4.3 it’s JSS15J.P605XXUBMJ9 and for the 4.4.2 KitKat it’s KOT49H.P600UEUCND2 and any future update build numbers) until a message pop-ups that says something “congratulations you are now a developer”.
  • TURN OFF the Security Reactivation Lock – This only necessary if you already turned-on this security option from your phone’s settings. If you’ve turned it ON before, then you must turn it off for we cannot  reconfigure the system if it was turned-on even Samsung personnel requires this if you want your device to be repaired under warranty. Just tap on Settings>>Security>>Reactivation Lock and then uncheck the Turn Reactivation lock on.How to turn-off the Activation lock on Samsung galaxy Note 3.Reactivation lock on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition
  • Prepare a Windows base OS computer or laptop, Odin flasher tool will not run on Mac and other OSX.
  • Use the supplied USB data cable, a bad USB data cable caused a flashing errors.  Believe me, I’ve faced it several times, if you get failed errors in Odin then you did not read this.
  • Remove the external  micro SD card if you have one, to avoid any failures and error during the flashing process. (Recommended for beginners, some rouge 3rd-party apps stored on SD card may also caused some problem)
  • Closed any other running programs in your computer, this include the Kies 3 which  basically blocks you from using Odin.

Flasher program for Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Odin3_v3.09 – Download

A USB Driver –  This is only needed if you haven’t yet installed the Kies 3 apps in your computer.  Older USB drivers will not work on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 because it now runs on the latest Android OS such as 4.3 and 4.4.2.  Grab it here – Download Kies 3 for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 or the  USB Driver. Just run the program to install it in your computer.

You also need to unzip or extract the firmware file,  compressed files can be extracted using 7zip, winzip, winrar or any unzipping program you have in your computer.

Unrooting the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Step 1: Run the Odin3_v3.09 and configure Odin in your computer desktop.

Hover your mouse to these three Odin check-boxes options, by default the ‘Auto Reboot’ and ‘F. Reset Time’ check-boxes are marked checks. Just ensure the “Re-Partition” remains no check marked.

Step 2: Boot your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition into Download Mode

Turn it off, then Press the Volume Down+Home+Power buttons at the same time, then let it go until a warning screen prompted you to choose to continue or cancel.  Press the ‘Volume Up button”  you will then see a download mode screen.

Step 3:  Connect your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition to the computer via the USB data cable

Once you connect your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014  with the USB cable you can see that Odin’s ID:COM triangular bar turned to blueish color and shows you the USB port number of your Galaxy Note 101 connection with the computer. The COM number will depend on which USB port assigned with your phones, it usually connects from 01 to 07. There is also a word that says “Added” in the log-cat box. If you ain’t see any response, try to recheck the USB cable and re-install the USB Driver.

Step 4:  Reload the Firmware Package in Odin

Click the Odin’s ‘AP button‘ then browse and select the firmware  file. Just make sure you already decompressed or unzipped it so you can browse it to the folder where you put it, it should it end with file description as “tar.md5″ or else the flasher program will not recognized it. Like for example if you have the 4.4.2 KitKat firmware is should look something like this,  “P600UEUCND2_P600XARCND2_HOME.tar.md5″
or the 4.3 Jelly Bean is like this,
“P600XXUBMJ6_P600DBTBMJ1_HOME.tar.md5″
Firmware packages comes in different build version numbers and basically shows the device model number such “P600” which means that this firmware file is for  Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition WiFi only SM-P600.

Then wait a couple of seconds while it reads the MD5 checksum.

Step 5: Install Back the Original Firmware

Simply hit the “Start Button”  Once both AP and CSC files filled with the right files, simply click that Odin’s “START” button to begin flashing. Wait and watch the progress bar as it will show you the exact time how it completes the flashing and it takes a couple of minutes before the flashing finishes, you have a time to relax  for a while.

Step 6: Wait until the Restoration Process completes!

When original firmware installation successfully completed,  you’ll noticed that Odin displays a word “PASS”.  this only indicates that the flashing was successful and your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition has now being restored back to the official firmware, and your root was gone for good.

If you’d get the “Fail” error, you must then simply repeat the process.  You may also check any other things that might have caused the problem like checking the USB data cable, your computers USB ports and closing any other programs that might have interrupt while running Odin.

Recheck and confirm if you’ve successfully un-root your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Once you already Odin’ed-back the official firmware it automatically mean that your phone now fully runs with the official firmware and then it can received any official (OTA) firmware again.There is also  free app from play store called root checker, you can use that too.

  1. Hey there… I rooted my P605 (LTE version) just to block Knox and to allow root access. No other mods were done. Now i would like to upgrade to the latest stock firmware. But Since I blocked Knox, i cant use OTA updates. What should I do next?

    I have experience in rooting/flashing sony acro s, nexus 4. This my first tab, so I wana make sure I dont screw it up. :=)

    Is It possible for me to just flash the latest Firmware on top of what I have now without Factory setting it? And I also would like to flash a custom recovery.

    Thanks

  2. Hi Neil,

    In the list I see the firmware 4.2.2 available but i think you mean 4.4.2 build.
    Is this correct? If not can you give me a link to the stock 4.4.2 USA firmware.

    thank you very much.

  3. Thanks very much. I had no big nail bittin;, hemorrhaging thing about the “Nuckle” err.. K knocks thing. (you know the warranty snitch softin’ware)I had this brand new Note, after kicking my iPad Air to the curb(I’m still a little curious if Apple will put 2 Gigs upstairs), I couldn’t update it easy and yer great unrootin’ blog is great!

  4. Step 5 you say “Simply hit the “Start Button” Once both AP and CSC files filled with the right files,” Up until this point you don’t mention CSC, where do you get this from?
