If you want to keep your root and have cool features like unlocked hotspot/call recording, you may want to install the latest Jasmine Lollipop ROM. For those of you coming from KitKat ROM with root, this is the best route so you don’t lose root permanently along with your unlocked WiFi hotspot.
For those of you who couldn’t root your AT&T or Verizon Galaxy Note 3 on Android 4.4.2, it was because the latest Android 4.4.2 is unrootable. BUT, XDA user GeoHot has figured out how to root it!
This root method actually works on all Galaxy Note 3 models with Android 4.4.2 and also does not trip KNOX for those of you worried about it. It will work on Android 4.4.2 with build numbers ending in NC2 or NC4.
For those of you who want to enable wifi tether for free on your AT&T SM-N900A or Verizon SM-N900V Galaxy Note 3, there’s an easy way to do so without root.
Step 1. There’s a bug on the Samsung firmware that allow you to turn on the hotspot toggle through a 3rd party widget so all you have to do is download a Hotspot toggle app such as Hotspot Toggle Widget.
