How to Root Galaxy Note 10.1 Wifi GT-N8013!

(Above shows my Wifi Note 10.1 being rooted, the red circle showing that there’s no SIM card slot.)

Well, it seems like Samsung did a good job of maintaining consistency along their Note 10.1 this time around. Unlike Tab 10.1s which required different recoveries for each different models, the Note 10.1 shares the same recovery and other file system partitions, allowing you to easily install the same ClockworkMod Recovery whether you have a GT-N8000 (3g model) or the GT-N8013.

What does this mean?

It just means that there’s more compatibility across all models of Galaxy Note 10.1 and it will make it easier for developers to make new ROMs for both.

You can root your Galaxy Note 10.1 Wifi GT-N8013 using the same root method used on the GT-N8000 version, see here to root your wifi version.

    I have a N8010 and Im from australia..

    I have the stock XSA firmware and I am rooted. I bought a OTG cable on friday and i tried to attach mice and keyboards and other devices like a pen drive but it does not work. when i connect the otg cable by it self, it shows the USB connector attached notification but it goes away in few seconds. Usb Host Controller ( app does not show any device connect. I have tried connecting devices with USB debugging enabled and also it being disabled.
    I also flashed cm10 and it does not show anything at all when I connect the OTG cable. I dont think there is a issue with the cable. Please help me out here. If you can, please make a kernel like the SiyahKernel (for SGS2 and SGS3)

    Thanks so much for the root Max. Only problem I am having is that it keeps giving me notification that there is an update available and when I try to update, it gives me an error and it stays on clockwork mod. How do I fix this problem? I am waiting for the Jelly Bean so I don’t know if that is the update. Thanks again.

  16. Tim says:

    Hey Max. I just picked up the note 10.1 Verizon variant sch-i925. Is there a root method that I can use for this thing or should I take this back to Verizon and just get the Wifi version. I would like to overclock just a little bit and try out a few roms as I have done on my Galaxy S3. Thanks bro

    • Max says:

      Check XDA I think there’s root for that one, I don’t think there’s many ROMs for that model, wifi is much more versatile.
