If there’s one thing we all hate with our Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo’s it’s that the battery life is never efficient enough. Modern-day technology tells us that it isn’t going to change anytime soon. Tesla’s Elon Musk is a great example of somebody who is worth billions of dollars but still hasn’t given us anything to be excited about regarding a battery that can last. It’s the single most important reason as to why we are not converting over to electric vehicle technology.
With that said, there are ways we can change the battery on our Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphones without physically changing the battery pack at all. We can do that by reducing the stress that is happening with our hardware. The more we work our smartphone hardware, the more the battery has to work to keep up. By removing things like the default stock apps on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo device we are then able to reduce that load and that gives us the better battery life. Better battery life also comes from reducing the work of your software. Everything that is happening on your screen is using up valuable juice too. We can solve those problems with a rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone by checking out some of the best root apps for Android lists and seeing what you can find for battery life and device performance.
The rooting package found in this guide is based on the JSS15J.N7507ZTUANC5 firmware which is part of an Android 4.3 Jelly Beam update that rolled out to some regions. It does not say that you need to update and run that same JSS15J.N7507ZTUANC5 firmware build ID on your device before you start with the guide. Chainfire tells us that it is just there as a guide for you to see because sometimes a Samsung device will refuse to boot older images. In fact, the guide should work for all Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo devices with the SM-N7507 model number.
Files You Need
- Download the new CF-Auto-Root file for the SM-N7507 from here.
- You are voiding the Samsung warranty of your Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone when you follow this guide. You can always unroot by removing the SuperSU or by flashing the stock ROM to get the warranty working again.

In conclusion, that’s how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone with the SM-N7507 model number. You should find the SuperSU available from the Neo’s app drawer when your smartphone reboots.
Chainfire states that any device that does not get into recovery mode during the guide will not be rooted. Anyone not finding the SuperSU available from the app drawer might be suffering from that same fate. For all those times, you can boot the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo into recovery mode manually instead.
Furthermore, anyone who has the Samsung USB drivers working has the device getting into recovery mode and still cannot seem to get the Note 3 Neo rooted can try installing a different version of the Odin flashing tool. Sometimes it can take a few versions before one of them works for your smartphone.
