If you are also one of them who is not rooting their galaxy note device just because the fear of increasing flash counter then we have a good news for you. XDA member Mashi launched an Odin-Flashable root method for At&T Samsung Galaxy Note which will obviously not increase your flash counter. In Case anyone who is not familiar with Flash Counter, let me tell you that it is the way of Samsung to track users who are flashing things on their device and who isn’t. Flash Counter keeps the record of how many times you have flashed kernel over Odin. For information, previously a XDA member Da_G has also elaborated a method to root Samsung Galaxy Note but that was increasing Flash Counter, but as understandable not many users like that so Mashi has elaborate a new method to fix the bug.

Before we will move on to instructions on how to root Samsung Galaxy Note without increasing Flash Counter, you should take some precautions and then you can simply move forward to the instructions.


  1. It is most important that you should make a back up of all your data such as music, Contacts, Messages, in case if any thing will deleted or get corrupted during the rooting process. You can check the following post in order to back up all your important data.
  2. Make sure that you have already enable your Device in USB debugging mode.If not, you can enable it as follows:- “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”
  3. Ensure that your device have at-least 75% of battery back up so that it will not interrupt you during the process.


  1. First you have to download the pda.tar file.
  2. In Order to flash this file in Odin, Simply Open Odin in your PC and switch off your phone so that you can enter download mode. In order to enter Download mode Press Volume down key + Center button + Power button simultaneously.
  3. Connect your device to your PC via USB cable and once you connect the device, ID:COM in Odin will turn yellow which indicate that all the drivers are properly installed.
  4. Now you have to select the pda.tar file you have downloaded in step 1. After selecting click on ‘Start’ and process will automatically start. Your device will be restarted there is no need to worry, its just because that the process is completed.

And that’s it, with the grace of XDA member Mashi, Samsung is now not able to track that how many times you have flashed kernel or root your device. Happy Flashing !
