One of the first questions people ask before they get a new device is, "Can it be rooted?" Most of the time it can be, however sometimes carriers will push an update that prevents the old rooting method from working. A very good example is the HTC One X on AT&T. Once the update bringing Android 4.0.4 came, the old rooting method no longer worked. It seems as if our very talented Android development community has rooted the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 2 already, and we don't even have an official release date or pricing yet.
The source who brought us the first confirmation for the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 is now telling us that the device has already been rooted. As seen in the screenshot above, the Galaxy Note 2 for AT&T is easily rootable. It does not have a locked down bootloader, unlike the Verizon version. The device is slated for a mid-November release on AT&T.

So there you have it, the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 has been rooted. Now let the custom ROMs flow into our favorite forums including XDA, Rootzwiki, and Modaco. Who's ready to see some CyanogenMod 10 or AOKP on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? I know it would look great on that display.
Who was looking to pick up the AT&T Galaxy Note 2? Now that it can officially be rooted, are you now sure you want the device? Let us know in the comments what you think.
