October 16, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

There’s no doubt that the Galaxy Note 3 is a powerhouse. But some people, like myself may still want to root it. Why? Well there are tons of reasons. There are some mods for Multi-Window and Pen Window which allow you to add more apps. There’s also the custom ROM scene and a few apps that you may want to use that need root access. Just like any other device, we did need to wait for someone to find an exploit to root the device. It’s also important to point out that this will void your warranty and will also keep you from getting OTA’s from your carrier.
