Your Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100 and notebook alike need to go through several important pre-requisites. Here you go:

  • take to this page to find USB drivers for the tablet;
  • download them on your laptop and install them there;
  • the tablet will need to function, for the rooting, on a fully charged battery;
  • backups are always requested, so be sure to create some;
  • a full NANDroid backup is another necessity, which means you should generate one;
  • all of your handset’s security programs have to be disabled;
  • the security software that’s available for your laptop need to be turned off;
  • your handset’s USB Debugging needs to be activated;
  • Windows is the OS version which best works with a rooting guide.

Step by step instructions

  1. Here’s how you have to begin: install the SRSRoot on the laptop. This requires you to go here and click on a download button. These actions will make sure that the app’s download begins and that you can flash it afterwards as mentioned.
  2. The downloaded package will then need a launch on your laptop. After performing all of these steps, the tablet can have its Menu tapped. Next, go to Settings, tap it, look under it and tap Unknown Sources.
  3. For this step, we ask that you activate USB Debugging. This is the option we wanted you to enable for the requirements phase. If you haven’t done it back then, you need to do it.
  4. Once you’ve activated it, your next action should be this one: attempt a connection between the handset and your laptop. This is a process that is only generated with the gadget’s USB cable. After being plugged to one another, you’ll have to move on.
  5. The most important thing now is to ensure the start of the rooting mode. The Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100 will only enter the latter if a certain option’s tapped. The name of this helping tool is the following: Root Device (All Methods).
  6. When the activation is done, you will need to wait. The rooting shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes; if it does, though, get ready to redo the steps until things are OK once more.
  7. [sc name=”banner-jos”]A successful rooting has to be followed by this action: tap Reboot System Now. Once you have enabled this appropriate option on the tablet, you can wait again; this time do it until the handset’s restarted.

Once your Samsung GT-N5100 has come back to life, the root access is yours for the taking; more precisely, its novel things and improvement options.
