How to Unroot Galaxy Note GT-N7000!


For those of you who have bricked your Galaxy Note GT-N7000 for some odd reason (although that’s hard to do) or you simply want to “un-warrantize” your phone so you can return it for warranty, you always have the option to “unroot” your phone completely back to stock.

This will get you back on stock Gingerbread ROM. And if ICS is available by the time you read this, you can still unroot using this method and do a software update on your phone (or use Samsung Kies) to get it all back to stock.

Step 1. Put your Galaxy Note into download mode by holding down the Volume Down, Center button, and the Power button together for about 10 seconds.

Step 2. When you see the warning sign, you can press Volume Up button.

Step 3. Connect a micro-USB cable from your phone to your computer.

Step 4. Next, go to this XDA thread and find the appropriate stock ROM for the country you bought your Galaxy Note.  If you can’t find your country, try something close.  And you can actually flash any of them, it won’t harm your Galaxy Note as you can always flash another country’s stock ROM.  They are compatible across all Galaxy Note GT-N7000.

Step 5. Once you download the appropriate stock ROM, unzip it and you should get either one file or multiple files.

Step 6. Next, download ODIN program, unzip, and run it.

Step 7. Choose “PDA” and choose the stock ROM file you unzipped earlier if you have one file.

If you have multiple files, choose the file ending with “user_low_ship.tar.md5″ for PDA, choose the file that contains “MODEM” in its filename for PHONE, and choose file that contains “CSC” in its filename for CSC.

Step 8. Make sure you get a yellow highlighted COM on ODIN.  If you don’t, download Samsung Kies and install.  After installing, unplug and plug in the micro-USB cable to your Galaxy Note and you should get the yellow highlight.

Next hit “Start” and after 5-10 minutes, your phone will reboot and you should be back on stock ROM.

 

Step 9. You will also need to do a factory reset afterwards.  To do this, hold down Volume Up, Center button, and Power button for about 10 seconds until you see yellow messages.

Step 10. Choose “Wipe data/factory reset”.

Step 11. Choose “Yes”.

Step 12. Reboot and your Galaxy Note GT-N7000 should be back on completely stock ROM.

Now, this unrooting process doesn’t erase any of your personal media files on your internal storage or SD card.  If you are returning your phone for warranty, do copy those (that you want to back up) to your hard disk and erase it.

Have a Mac or Linux?

You can also do this using the open-source Heimdall for Mac or Linux.  The steps are nearly identical except you don’t need to install drivers for Mac or Linux.

                      Dear Max,

                      I tried rooting my Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 with Andriod 4.0.4 and it happened wonderfully… But then i tried installing some fonts and it asked me to reboot and there you go… the OS crashed. it has got a problem with the bootloader… Can you please help.. would unroot help me get me back my OS or i would need to go for a full wipe out. ? or one can tweak the bootloader a bit to make it running…

                      Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

                      Regards.

  4. Tanzim says:

    For unrooting, should i download Older ROMs od Latest Not Directly Rootable ROMs ?

    • Abdullah.gamal says:

      Tanzim
      you can download any of them the Difference between them is when you try to root it again
      the Older ROMs you will root them with method 1 ( and you will not have the yellow triangle )
      but the Latest Not Directly Rootable ROMs you will root them with method 2 ( and you will have the yellow triangle )

      • Tanzim says:

        Thanks Abdullah. That means new firmware versions are not directly rootable. So there is a yellow triangle ? Is there any problem of the yellow triangle?

  5. Abhi says:

    I rooted using the 1st method (runme.bat).
    1) In order to reciew updates from Samsung do I need to unroot the device?
    2) Is reloading the stock ROM the onl y way to unroot the device.

    I’ll appreciate anybody who can answer these two questions for me.
    Thanks

  6. Abdullah.gamal says:

    unfortunately i did not find my original rom in the stock rom thread
    i know i can download any rom but i need the original one come with my LOVELY NOTE

    thank you man for all this information in your site

  7. faian says:

    how come some apps don’t want to work on ICS? tells me the device is not supported.

  8. safijunaid says:

    Will it also erase the flash counter and make it 0? i used method 2 to root my phone and now the flash counter is 1.. do this method also reset that counter?

  9. nelonez says:

    I just wanna say THANKS a million times…. got my SGN back to normal….

  10. Mustafa says:

    I did flash my note using ODIN to i9220LP1.
    Can I use your method to back to my original rom?
    and one more thing, I’ve the yellow triangle on the boot screen, and the custom binary is (2), will the original rom wipe and reset this count?

  11. Janet DuVall says:

    I hate myself, so stupid, I rooted but after installing superuser, its in system as default, and after running successfully stock rom from ODIN, even after wipe I still have root & superuser, how can I get rid of super user & get successful un-root? Apologize for my lamer mess, your help and site is my last hope!

  12. kartik says:

    thanx a million times

  13. Paul Soko says:

    i rooted using method 2 , i want to unroot is installing the stock rom the only way out? please help

  14. Vernal says:

    I’m being prompted for a password in order to extract the ROM. Please advise. Thanks.

  15. Sakthi Ganesh says:

    Thank u Soooooooo much

    y when i unroot my phone using odin, it takes so long at the factoryfs.img part?

  20. mesersmith says:

    I have:
    basebad version N7000XXKA4
    Kernel version 2.6.35.7-N7000XXLA6-CL907341
    build number: GINGERBREAD .XXLA6

    My question is how can I root this phone, because there are a lot of tutorials and a lot of ideeas that said what variant is good or not, ans all the informations make me dizzy.
    So, I understand that is not posible to root this ROM in dirrect mode, only tu downgrade to a previous ROM, root it, and upgrade to first ROM.
    Is that correct? I really need to root my phone and I need a clean advise.

  21. rahul patil says:

    really useful blog. i really appreciate ur help. thanks buddy :-)
    only problem i had here in india, it took 3 hours to download firmware & in between it got disconnected twice; so had to restart downloading again.
    but whatever u have mentioned here is really simple and had no problem to follow.
    thanks once again.

  22. Andy says:

    Hi! Thanks alot for this guide! I’ve just unrooted my Note so that I could update to ICS. But after restoring to the stock ROM, when trying to update via KIES. It says that my version of the device cannot be updated.
    The current firmware version is PDA: KL1 PHONE : KJ3 CSC : KJ6 (KOR)
    Really stuck over here so I would appreciate any help !
    Many thanks in advance ! :D

    • Max says:

      Try ODINing to ICS straight then, you can flash this in ODIN:

        Hi max,
        one doubt, i have a rooted kingdroid ics version3.0. i want to go back to my stock ICS rom for warranty purpose. should i follow
        1) the odin step above by flashing it with a stock ICS rom(i ll be doing odin on a rooted phone)
        2) should i restore the rooted stock ICS i backed up, unroot it , then flash abyss followed by installing the stock rom?
        3) any other step u suggest? so that when i connect my device to Kies , i shouldnt get the message ” Firmware cannot be updated in this device”…

  23. Stephen says:

    I have a euro note. I went through the whole rooting process, added the franco kernal and now the phone won’t recognize my sim card. I can use wifi but no more network connectivity. Then I tried to unroot the phone as described above. Everything went smoothly until I went to plug it in to odin and it went through the motions until it said Can’t Open the Serial(COM) port. and then fails. Any idea what the heck is going on?

  24. Stephen says:

    Totally worked. You’re awesome. So next question:

    Ok so after a disastrous first run – where I did all of the steps above (how to root w/o pc) and lost complete network connectivity, I reinstalled the german unroot per the instructions on the site (thanks to your help). I’m back to square one, which feels really good, but I DO actually want to root the phone. Was it the use of the Franco kernel that blew everything up? I have an unlocked euro GTN7000 with a tmobile sim card. What I want is to get 3g on it but it appears that’s not yet doable (wish I’d noticed that before going through everything but that’s my bad). Long story short, now that I’m back to square one, was it the kernel that messed up my network connectivity or was it the CWM.zip files?

    • Max says:

      might have franco kernel is only for ics roms.

  25. carl says:

    hi there, i rooted and everything was going fine…so i decided that i would back up my current rom ics. i did that, tried to reboot the phone and all of a sudden the phone is stuck on the galaxy note boot up screen. i tried to boot into recovery mode and all i get is the little green android bloke with the spinning thing in his chest, but nothing happens. will unrooting fix this problem?

    get back to me asap if you could, i really dont want to be sending the phone back (if they would even take it back now)

    thank you
    :)

    • Max says:

      when you see the green android bloke, do a factory reset and will fix the bootloop issue.

      • carl says:

        thats the point, i cant. it wont let me there is no option to do so. it just sticks at the android bloke too….

        also, i dont know if this will help either, but when plugged in charging all i get it a battery but no green bar inside it, only a loading circle, do you think this is connected to my problem?

        • Max says:

          Try hitting Volume Up + Down when in that mode or Volume Up + Power it will give you the menus.

          • carl says:

            looks like i may have bricked it completely from just backing the device up and wiping the memory.

            can odin be used to install any rom? or just stock?

            hitting volume up+ power+ middle button gives no menu like before, only the green bloke with the thing rolling about in his chest (and stays doing this), nothing else happens at all…

            thanks for your reply anyway :)

            • Max says:

              Yes that’s stock recovery do a factory reset there.

              • carl says:

                do a factory reset through odin?

                i cant do it through the phone, it is giving me no options what so ever.
                if is hard bricked is there any chance in me getting my media files off it, or check if there is any left on there before i take it back to the store and i get photos of the mrs floating about the internet lol

  26. carl says:

    i said before, nothing happens when i do that, it goes to the green man, with no options and automatically goes back to the samsung galaxy start up screen and just plays the same screen over again on a loop. looks like i will be taking it back to the shop….

    • Max says:

      When you see the green man, try hitting volume up and volume down or volume up and power key, that will show u the menus.

  27. Simon says:

    Dear Max,

    I was wondering if I can use this method to unroot my note if I used the ‘root your galaxy note without computer’, method?

      I am having the same problem like yours, please let me know how you did yours. I am sitting here all day long doing this, but no progress. Gosh….I don’t know how I am gonna survive without my phone.

      • Jed says:

        Well guys, i did all i could have done and I was not able to get it back. I was forced to send my phone abroad “from the Caribbean” to the States to get it fixed. Cost me 50 USD…what can I say….Max please address this issue.

        • khai says:

          I sent mine to mobile tech videos and they fixed it. But all I get back is 8GB, so unless you are sending it to Samsung for the warranty repair, I suggest you that you go to XDA Forum and find the PIT file thread and repartition it. It’s likely EMMC brick caused by unsafe ics kernel bug.

    Thnx v.much Max

  46. Maurice says:

    If I unroot it, will it still have the yellow triangle?

    • Max says:

      You can use Triangle Away app to get rid of it but I don’t really recommend it unless you are returning your phone for warranty, the triangle does not affect performance of your phone in any way.

  51. salah says:

    Hi, I was upgrading my note yesterday .. It stopped at 36% .. And showed an issue .. then it switched off and never got up any more .. when I tried to connect it to my pc .. It did not respond .. but after a while it showed a picture of computer and mobile and a yellow triangle between them .. as an error .. It says you must open your device in recovery mode .. I read about that .. I knew later that I should press up vol. home power on then I will see my boot screen .. I tried but nothing showed up. It’s still black .. please, tell me what to do please.

  52. OnuTzu says:

  53. Wendy says:

    Hi Max

    I’m wanting to unroot my Note using Heimdall on my MacBook Pro, Mac OS X Mountain Lion. I have installed Heimdall and the Samsung Stock Firmware – following the XDA link in your tutorial. I entered Download Mode on my Note, attached it to my Mac and saw that Heimdall detected the device. On the Load Package tab in Heimdall, I clicked browse and selected the stock firmware .md5 file. Heimdall decompressed and extracted the file and then reported a .xml file was missing. I also tried to another .md5 file and had the same error message display.

    I would be really grateful if you could explain how I use Heimdall on my Mac to unroot my Note, I have searched the web to no avail :( I really an stuck.

    Thank you.

  56. SK says:

    Hi Max
    Before this my phone is in “Soft Brick” (stucked at Samsung logo)
    Follow your Unroot method till Step 8.
    It works!! Yahoo!! :D
    Now my phone is on Stock Gingerbread ROM.
    I read in XDA saying that it is unsafe to do factory reset only on ICS Rom.
    Is it safe to do a factory reset?

    Your device’s firmware version is not supported to update fimrware via Kies.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

  76. Chris says:

    Mate, I really need help; I think my n7000 is bricked.

    1) It doesn’t get past the logo screen.
    2) CWM launches but it doesn’t let me flash any roms as it keeps saying ‘Installation Aborted’
    3) In Odin V3.07, my device is highlighted green (not yellow, and I’ve also installed Kies)
    4) I’ve tried to unroot it with odin like in your http://rootgalaxynote.com/galaxy-note-unroot/how-to-unroot-galaxy-note-gt-n7000/ tutorial but it just fails.
    5) I’ve tried to unbrick it with tutorials I’ve found online, checking ‘Auto Reboot’ and ‘F. Reset Time’ (and not ‘Re-Partition’) but this also fails.

    I really need help, please reply with some details of what I should do. Thanks.

    • Max says:

      first try solving one thing at a time. try using cwm to install a new rom again and make sure you can open the zip file on your computer first. if u cant u have a bad download so just redownload file.

    Hello,

    Now, if I want to go back to Stock ROM, do I need to install same Gingerbread 2.3.6 or can I download and flash any ROM preferably JB ROM (N7000DDLSC N7000ODDLSC from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1424997)
