For those of you who want to unroot your AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717, here’s how to do it easily using ODIN and stock ROM tar.md5 file on Windows. If you have a Mac or Linux, you can use Mobile ODIN Pro from the Play Store instead. And also if you are returning your phone for warranty purposes, you can reset binary counter by using Triangle Away app before running ODIN or Mobile ODIN.

    did you do this video because people were complaining of the jelly bean roms?

  2. Jean Mauri says:

    Hi there man yeah just wanted to ask u from some support regarding gnote i did this method coming from a ics rom and i cant get past the att logo nither with this method or the gingerbread unroot method any suggestions on what to do

  3. LJ says:

    Can you show how to unroot the tmobile note

  4. Felix Velazquez says:

    Hey Max, everything went well on this process, but I don’t know if I am unrooted yet because some rooted required apps are still accessible. You recommend doing a factory reset or just erase those apps?

  5. Rich says:

    I have to return my Note for a warranty replacement…the USB/Charger port doesn’t work unless I push the usb cable down while inserted. I unrooted and went back to stock ICS.

    My question is about the yellow triangle. Say you never rooted your phone..would you still see it at the warning screen after you do the power button/volume down combo to get to ODIN mode to see your flash counter and rom info?

    I’m assuming the yellow triangle shows up during boot on some Samsung devices but not the US Note…or is the yellow triangle in the warning screen before going to Odin mode the giveaway that I’ve already rooted my device?

    I could swear it was there before I rooted for the first time.

    • Max says:

      Yellow triangle only shows when you flash a custom recovery in ODIN, you can easily get rid of it using Triangle Away app if you don’t like it but it does not affect your phone in any way, I don’t advise resetting the binary count unless you are returning phone for warranty.

      • Rich says:

        I had to return it this morning due to the charger port being totally screwed up. I flashed the counter and it worked just fine..showed NO custom flash and Official Rom.

        I guess the yellow triangle at that warning screen is supposed to be there. First thing i did when i got in my car was the power/vol down thing and it was there on the brand new unrooted phone.

        I guess the triangle they talk about shows up on boot screen, so you’d see it everytime you power on.

        Time to root my new phone and flash to CM10 🙂

  6. Rich says:

    ok, after some googling I found this:

    “Flashing this recovery will void your warranty and will show you a yellow triangle at the first screen every time you turn on your phone, which is a method Samsung uses to find out whether you have played around with the device.”

    booting my Note up, i see no yellow triangles at any point…so I’m assuming I’m GTG (good to go)

  7. wilson says:

  9. super-beaner says:

  10. Happyoldman says:

    Any friend, brother and sister here can help me to unroot my T-mobile Note ?
    And bring it back to stock condition ?
    I need to exchange because I have problem with charging.

  11. LJ says:

    Happyoldman use oden with the AT&T unroot software and sequence posted on the site. For the TMobile Note you must hold the up and down volume button with the power but to put the phone in recovery mode. Follow the video max has an you will be fine. This worked perfectly when I unrooted my note.

  12. reggiejaxx says:

    Hey Max, just updated to the new version8 of this great rom but now the author of the rom suggested updating the kernel ,I downloaded the new kernel but wanted to know how to safely flash it I’ve heard bucking stories thanks 🙂

  13. reggiejaxx says:

    That was meant to be Bricking stories from flashing kernels!

  14. cel gales says:

    I used this method but when i tried to reboot it acts like its about to boot but only makes it to the second samsung boot screen and then restarts the process over and over again. Never rebooting!!! What do i need to do?

  15. Mikachu says:

    Hey I have a question….so rooted my Note and ended up having a lot of problems with the ROM until I was fed up and wanted to unroot. So I followed the method above to the T and I can’t get my phone paseed the “Rethink Possible” Screen. I thought maybe it just needed time so I left it be, and its been six hours since then and its still on the same screen. I re-did the method and the same thing is happening! I don’t know what to do! My poor baby is stuck! lol

  16. Mikachu says:

    Please help! I sued this method to get my SGN back to stock and now It won’t get passed the “Rethink Possilbe” Screen if I turn it on and I can’t get into download mode! I have no idea what to do? Is it bricked? I followed the instructions to the letter! Please help I’M FREAKING OUT!!!!!

  18. Jim says:

    This worked great, no problems at all! Was having call quality issues so flashed back to stock with intent to return it for repair/replace but then the issues went away… not sure if it’s related (doesnt seem like it would be), so I went ahead and rooted again and flashed back to my backup padawan v4 and am good to go!! Max… great work, thanks for all your help. I go here first when looking for roms or any interesting hacks, keep up the good work!

  19. Ryan O says:

    For people that got their phone stuck on att “rethink possible” screen.
    I got it working after I cleared cache and data on recovery mode

  20. james tearn says:

    need to unroot i717 and return to stock without cable functionality.
    Please help!

  21. John DeKoven says:

    I have a T-Mobil Galaxy Note. I just got a notice that there is an update and since my phone is rooted I believe I need to unroot it. However, I never see instructions on specific rooting/unrooting for the t-mobil galaxy note. It’s been awhile and I can’t remember how I rooted it (i.e. if I just followed AT&T directions). If I want to unroot can I just follow the directions here for AT&T unroot?


  22. bruce says:

    the ATT download link is not working, is anyway you can post it again? or send the link to me?
    Thank you

  23. josh says:

    I am trying the link as well but I am running into the same problem as Bruce, the link doesnt seem to be working and I need to return the phone to because waranty

  24. joshua says:

    please help Max. the att download link is not working. can you please send me the link?

  25. Mike says:

    Hey I want to let you know that flashing this rom does not delete stuff and you may have picture and music that you want to save using kies. I did restore factory defaults before doing any of this and also did triangle away which worked with att note -i717 . also the program are still left over in phone memory root apps . so you probably want to look at whats left over and backing up and deleting before turning your phone in for warranty.

  26. John says:

    Hello Max!
    I tried to install a ota software update from att. At the enough of the DL it took me to ROM Manager pro. I opted to select to reboot, because I was unsure of the over options. My question is do I need to unroot to accept the ota software, or is there a way to bypass ROM Manager Pro without uninstall. Most importantly is it worth downloading the manufacturer update. I’m not sure what the update is. I’m assuming it’s jellybean since I have a i717 with ice cream sandwich.

    The Rogers one seems to work for the Bell Canada phones, thought I’d let you know
