You can now root Galaxy Note 2 4.1.2  and install CWM Recovery on it. If you just installed the official Android 4.1.2 on Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100, you can already root N7100XXDLK7 update. Samsung released the update earlier today in specific countries. It is, however, available for download and can be installed manually … and now it can be rooted as well. What more you can wish for? You can also install ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) on Galaxy Note 2 4.1.2 JB device. Here is the step by step guide:

Step 5: Connect Galaxy Note 2 (which should be in download mode, as per step 3) to the PC.

You will see a message in Odin saying “Added!!”. If you do not see this message, don’t proceed and check if the device drivers are installed properly on the PC.

    Also, after you root and install CWM, after the first boot, CWM will ask if you don’t want stock recovery to be installed after boot.  You should select “Yes”.
