You can root the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition with the model number P-607T using the Towelroot app if you are running Android KitKat and a kernel version before June 3 2014. It’s not the end of the world if your device is running a newer kernel version because you can just downgrade to the version of KitKat that can be rooted. From there, you can choose to install some custom ROM for your device that might be based on Lollipop instead of running the official Lollipop builds. You’ll need to install a custom recovery to install a custom ROM, though. The Towelroot app does let you install a custom ROM after you get root access, so that works well.
