You might already know the digits “12.2” in the Galaxy range. The Note Pro and the Tab Pro both offer the 12.2 option and they are two separate devices. Make sure you know the guide below is only for the Note variant before starting. Kingroot is the method we are using today, which gives devices a “soft” root option. Furthermore, you can easily unroot the device using the Kingroot application by opening the app up later and clicking the button. Many people prefer Kingroot because it doesn’t come with the risk of bricking your handset. After installing the app and opening it from the app drawer, you can click the button to double-check your device is available for the rooting. It’s at this point where if the display says “no” you can turn around and go back. Doing so eliminates bricking.

If you are one of the many who like rooting Android to use the additional root-requiring apps from Google Play, we highly recommend using this Kingroot method. However, if you are wanting to install custom ROMs and change the UI, you’ll be better off finding a different tool.
