For those of you who somehow picked up a South Korean version of Galaxy Note, the SHV-E160S, SHV-E160K, or SHV-E160L, you can root your Korean version Galaxy Note by flashing Tegrak’s recovery and kernel.
You can find the instructions for rooting the Korean version at Tegrak’s website but since it’s in Korean, let me briefly translate it for you.
*These are for Windows only but you can use Heimdall for Mac and Linux to flash the recovery.tar file, “heimdall –flash kernel recovery.tar”
First, install KIES on Windows, this will install USB drivers for the Galaxy Note.
Basically, you will need to use ODIN to flash the file ending in “recovery.tar”. This installs the recovery portion and will boot your phone into recovery.
Upon booting unto recovery, you need to find and flash the file ending in “.zip”. You should probably copy this file over to your phone beforehand.
