For those of you wondering how to root your T-Mobile Galaxy Note SGH-T989, you can use the AT&T root method as hardware is identical to the AT&T SGH-i717 version.
As for custom ROMs, please do not flash AT&T Galaxy Note ROMs. Users have reported success though that custom ROMs work fine so long as you flash T-Mobile modem back on after flashing ROM on Touchwiz-based ROMs. CM9/CM10/AOKP/AOSP ROMs are not working though so don’t flash it!
