Select your choice from one of this
1. Root with Stock Recovery - It will give full root access but have stock recovery. You can set your flash counter '0' and so ready to claim warranty.If you want device full stock + root this is choice for you.
2. Root + Advanced CWM - This will give Root access as well advanced CWM - Here you can reset counter, but once reboot to recovery, it will raise flash counter, Find option to reset counter on every boot (only You must register or login to view this.).
3.Root with ExynosAbuse apk - simply install apk to gain root access. (not works on latest ROM, Jan 2013/LL7 and later)

So which one I should select? OR Which one is better?
Both Methods are given by elite developer and both are good, but both having its cons and pros. e.g.
Method 1:
Disadvantage : Here you will get full root access, but here recovery will remain stock, so you won't have option to flash zip files (still you can flash zip with Mobile Odin), but you won't have any option for Nandroid backup/Restore.
Advantage : You have to reset flash counter once only, then whenever you need to reset to unroot/ready to claim warranty, just you need to go to superSU - setting - unroot.
So If you are Flash counter conscious and really don't have need for nandroid backup, This one is for You.
Method 2:
Disadvantage : Note2 having auto check sum boot loader and it will check for custom things on every boot. So rooting with this method your counter will remain 1, even if you have reset it with trïânglê away. Though one possibility is there to reset counter, you have to use market version of trïânglê Away with option 'Reset counter on every boot'. But keep in mind this option only available if your kernel support this, stock kernel won't support it. Again before claiming warranty you need to flash stock recovery.
Advantage : You will have feature rich recovery like flashing zip from recovery and Nandroid backup/Restore.
So If you are not much worrying about flash counter or warranty and you really need Nandroid backup, This one is for you.
Method 3: - Recommended , (not works on latest ROM, Jan 2013/LL7 and later)
Advantage :Biggest thing you can disable exploit and make device safer. Easiest, No PC Needed. Simply install apk to root device, No flashing/Resetting counter needed.
Disadvantage :Camera issue on some FW, but reversible by enabling exploit in one click

Restart device and wait for 10 min. and then you can check status.

Reseting Counter
Above method will raise flash counter and you will need to reset counter to reclaim warranty, Read next post for it (post#3)

First thing I do recommend after rooting device
You must register or login to view this.

Why so?
EFS folder contains some important and some basic info related to our device identity like Wi-Fi address, Bluetooth MAC address and the very main IMEI address (nv_data.bin).
Now if this EFS partition accidently corrupted then your phone’s IMEI no. will erased and you can not make voice call further. This kind of damage is often not accepted by the service center of your respected handset’s company.
Here your backup can only be savior for you.

How to Unroot :

- This is commonly needed before sending it to service station and reclaim warranty.
1.As discussed in post #3 if you have any custom recovery/Kernel first you need to replace it with stock one. Post #6 of this thread having stock recovery/Kernel.If you have custom ROM, then you will have to flash stock ROM.(you can use mobie odin to keep root intact to reset counter)
2.You need to use trïânglê away if your binnary count is non zero (read post #3)
3.Once your flash counter is 'No' then you can simply unroot from superSU setting
if your device status is -Modified, you can do this trick to reset to normal
setting - appl manager - All - clear data for SysScope as well Enterprise SysScope
This should change system setting to Normal
If still you have modified status, you can wipe cache and data from recovery.
If still it doesn't change status, try removing Ext SD card
4. This is optional but full proof method to unroot and won't leave any footprint of previous root.(provided you flash counter is 'No')
-Flash Stock ROM with PC Odin
-Wipe cache and data.

Backup :

1.Nadroid Backup :

This is can backup your full ROM + Custom Kernel + Data
But as above said, I prefers to use this as Backup only static data rather than have full backup. I think this will be more suitable if you create Backup of just Base. e.g System. As data we always have modify in day to day activity, but system will remain same.
- So better to keep Backup of ROM + Mods if you are using like call recording, launcher,any dumped application you have, OR any stuff you are using with pushing in system ROM.
- Better to have backup after adding your account, as this will save your time. But keep Account sync off (otherwise backup will includes contacts, calendar) and when you will restore, it may have changed.
- - Add your preferable setting like sound, tone, keyboard, language, country etc. As these setting usually we need not to change, once it applied.
- Add Titanium backup, Root Explorer application, as this is useful immediately after restoring backup

Now Create Nandroid backup of above said contents with recovery. It is better to put note along with backup, so you can easily get idea which backup contains what, particularly when multiple backup are there.

2.Data Backup :

Here list of things we need to have backup day to day.
1.Contacts : There is option available in contact – menu – Import/Export, This is best tool when you manually wiping, as this is most secure backup. Contacts also gets backup automatically if you keeping Accoun sync ON. Though will discuss in next step how to auto backup.
2.Camera snaps : Usually very precious data, and stores in Internal storage by defaults, so won’t erase during wiping/hard reset(except specially you select to format USB storage). But still better way you can change setting in camera appl storage location to Ext SD card, so need not to worry, if you need to format USB storage any time.
5.Call Logs
6.Calendar – As said it also auto sync with google acc, but will discuss in next session
7.Personal dictionary, usually swype dictionary auto add all names and words you are having in contacts, will discuss next session

So after having backup of all mentioned above, you need not to have worry about data, and you can fearlessly flash any ROM without worrying about losing data.
Hete now will discuss how to setup Titanium backup to backup all mentioned thing automatically.

Schedule Backup :

1.Open Totanium and make this change
Menu – preferance – Auto-sync TB –This will save all change you make on Titaniu, and need not to set everytime after re installing TB.
As well if you have sufficient space on card, select to have 3-5 copies of backup.
2.Now first create backup of full device, once your device is full prepared with everything..
batch – backup – select ‘Backup all user app + system data’
This will have full backup of all your installed appl and data.
3.Now from backup/restore screen, select ‘Click to Edit filter’ See image below)

select ‘create lable’

name it e.g. ‘data only’
select add/remove elements
Now just select green and yellow colored listing – and Ok from Rt upper corner tick mark.

Now come to schedules
Pick one from listed – Edit
First line select with Backup new user+syst app & newer version (see image)
Second line – no filtering
Select time (when your device remains in non use)
Select days of week you want to backup (idle daily)
And save.

Now pick another one – Edit (see image below)
First line select – ‘Backup all system data’
Second line select –[Label] data only (OR name which you applied above)
Same way above select time and days of backup and save.

So schedule 1 will backup all application which you install day to day, and schedule 2 will backup all the data like bookmark,contacts, personal dictionary,SMS,calendar,call logs etc as per your selected time.
And keep data up to date.

Backup of homescreen

This is usefull when you have multiple folder on your homescreen like I have in this picture.

Here you need to have backup of Tw Launcher(or touch wiz home if you are using TW5), but remember when to restore, just select data only.

Restoring :

So whenever you need to wipe OR you want to switch over from different ROM, just go this way
1.Restoring after wiping
If you have same ROM and just wipe data then restore with Titanium is enough
- Install titanium, bacup/Restore screen and just select all yellow colored backup and restore, if you want to restore dictionary,calendar,storage select those from green colored list and restore
- Batch – restore – select ‘missing appl with data’ and restore.

2.Restoring from other ROM
better flash same kernel, on which you have create nadroid backup and restore nandroid backup of base as mentioned at starting of post.
Then restore rest of things as mentioned in 1. above.

@ All newbies using titanium backup

I have read to many cases, user losing backup made by titanium after factory reset
This is b'coz by default titanium backup make makeup folder on internal SD card, and factory reset wiping this folder too, so at end of factory reset you won't have any data to restore
to prevent this, always use storage to Ext SD card instead of int SD card
How to ?
-create new folder on ext Sd card and name it like titaniumbackup
-open titanium - menu - preference -backup folder location
Now this will show all backup files, press back menu and navigate to new folder you have created
and use 'use current folder'
It will ask to move all data - move it.

Now back to preference menu and check mark 'Auto-sync TB setting'
this will remember your choice after installing TB next time

Now you are safe and can wipe cache and data without losing your backup.
