Root Galaxy Note 10.1 using Odin – Install XXALGA Stock European Firmware

Do you want to know how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1? We will offer you the easiest way to do that.
This process can be done with the help of a custom ROM which was developed by a member on the XDA Developers forum. The name of the tool he created for this purpose is Odin. In order to install such a ROM, the device you want it installed on needs to be rooted. Which is always a delicate process. For instance, it implies the fact that your gadget’s warranty will be made void. However, that becomes available again after the user either grabbing an upgrade offered by Samsung or by downgrading to the stock ROM. At the end of the day, thought, rooting offers the owner of a device the possibility to enjoy neat features on his smartphone, tablet and such.



  • Before deciding to start a rooting process, there are certain things that need to be done. First, see if you have access to a laptop using the Windows OS, a USB cable and the Internet.
  • Then you must create a backup for the very important files and whatnot that are on your Galaxy Note 10.1.
  • Only after you checked these out grab your tablet and enable an option called USB debugging; to find it, go to Settings, then Applications, then Development and there you will see the needed option.
  • The next step is to deactivate any security software and such you have installed on your tablet and laptop.
  • Then make sure that the battery is either fully loaded or over 60% full.
  • The last requirement is to go to Settings, then About Device and then Firmware Version. Once in the Firmware Version, see what operating system your tablet uses.

Below are some types of firmware that are needed for the installation. Download either one of them (it must be the right one for your tablet; the gadget will tell you if it’s not): UEALGB GT-N8013 Firmware with Root injected, XWALG7 Stock Saudi Arabian/United Emirates Firmware with Root injected or XXALGA Stock European Firmware with Root injected.
