Ok, I finally rooted my Note after the warranty had expired! I was just researching on how to unlock it from the network I'm on, and here's the link that worked:
Be warned! I'm not responsible should you try this and things go wrong if you didn't follow instructions properly! All I'm saying is that it worked on my unit!
Then, yesterday, I had to do the noob mistake of lowering the CPU speed just to see if it could lower power consumption and it BRICKED after a restart!!! The same process didn't do anything and so I researched on having it working again and this guide on putting it back with Samsung's original ROM and kernel worked:
A fair amount of downloading the data needed had taken overnight and carefully reading and following the exact steps. I had to pay about $2+ for the SIM unlocker app which will only work on a rooted unit.
THIS IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT CAREFUL as the instructions gave ample warning of what damage a wrongly placed script set could do.
Benefits of rooting that I'm currently enjoying are being able to read NFTS (via a free app) portable powered HDD; take out bloatware like Crayon Physics, Social Hub and the like; complete app + data backups. I'm still discovering more stuff for the next few days, and probably try out a couple of different good reviewed ROMs.
I do advise you not to do this if you are still within your warranty. I'm giving this open-lined Note to my wife since I'm getting a Note II soon.
I have brought this device sometime ago but facing some issue with battery usage. I can understand its a huge phone with huge battery but mine only last for single day and more over not complete day and m very easy on the internet and others things still can't understand the reason for battery depletion so quickly.
Please guys help me

Niraj, 27 Nov 2012Okay...Thanks!!Well I have also been listening these rumours that JB update will soon be avail... moreBut dude you should remember that that will void your warranty if your phone is in Warranty period. And also if after that you try to update your phone through Samsung kies (If anything comes officially from Samsung)then it will create problem.So do it @ your own risk.
Note_user, 27 Nov 2012Yes. i already updated my Note to latest S/W release (ends with 'LRB') from Samsung through ki... moreOkay...Thanks!!Well I have also been listening these rumours that JB update will soon be available for Note 1 but yet to see it...now thinking of going for customozed ROM available on XDA Forum...What say?
Niraj, 27 Nov 2012Are you able to upgrade your Note N7000 to Jelly Bean using kies...pls revert.Yes. i already updated my Note to latest S/W release (ends with 'LRB') from Samsung through kies. And for your kind information, this is not a JB update.Its an intermediate ICS update only.I believe they have fixed some known bugs in this release and expecting JB update for Note 1 very soon :).
