So, you’ve rooted your AT&T/Bell/Telus/Rogers Galaxy Note SGH-i717. What next?
If you want just root so you can get root for your Galaxy Note and get free wifi tether, that’s fine but if you want to install new ROMs on your newly-wedded bad boy, you will want to install ClockworkMod Recovery tool. Which will allow you to install, backup, and restore ROMs.
Step 1. Hold down the Volume Down and Power button together until your phone resets. When it resets, let go of the Power button but keep holding down the Volume Down button.
Step 2. When you see a warning screen like shown below, hit the Volume Up button to enter Download mode.
Step 3. Connect a micro USB cable from your Galaxy Note to your computer.
Step 4. Download ATTGalaxyNoteRecovery.zip and unzip. You will find three files like shown below.
Step 5. Run odin3v.185.exe by double-clicking on it.
You should see the ODIN program running with a yellow highlighted COM port. If you don’t see the yellow highlighted portion, you don’t have Samsung Kies installed. Download and install Samsung Kies (then unplug, plug the micro USB cable.)
Step 6. Hit the PDA button and choose the file
Step 7. Hit Start to flash the ClockworkMod Recovery to your Galaxy Note.
Step 8. Your phone will reboot. To get into ClockworkMod Recovery, hold down Volume Up, Volume Down and Power button together until your phone resets.
Step 9. Then let go of Power button while holding down the Volume Up button.
Step 10. You should be in ClockworkMod Recovery. Congratulations! Pat yourself on the back, you’ve successfully installed ClockworkMod Recovery on your AT&T/Bell/Telus/Rogers Galaxy Note SGH-i717!
