Steps 1 through 3
There’s already a working CWM recovery which means you may be able to easily root your brand, new Galaxy Note 3 easily.
Here’s an outline of steps you must do to root your Galaxy Note 3. This guide works for all Jelly Bean Android 4.3, KitKat Android 4.4.2, 4.4.4, and Lollipop Android 5.0, 5.0.1, and 5.0.2. For KitKat/Lollipop, make sure you use the updated CWM recovery instead.
Currently this root guide is for Windows only (or use VMWare for Linux/Mac) but I will have an updated Mac/Linux guide soon.
Step 1. First, make sure you have either SM-N9005, SM-N9006, SM-N900, Korean SM-N900S, Canadian SM-N900W8, Sprint SM-N900P, or T-Mobile SM-N900T model Note 3. If your model is not listed, try Towelroot or CF Auto Root instead.
