How to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on Android 4.3

Rooting a device means to get superuser privileges and gain entry to system-level access to the Linux kernel on which Android is running. Something which is normally blocked out to regular users. Nowadays, rooting has reached a level where any new device gets a root method merely days after it becomes publicly available (or in some cases, even before that). The same applies to Samsung’s latest flagship in its Note phablet lineup, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The device, which became available just last month, carries the top of the line processor, hardware and software available right now, and offers a user experience second to none in the Note lineup of devices.

The root for Galaxy Note 3 also comes from the renowned Chainfire, whose auto-root has served a viable, working solution for a lot of Android devices. Additionally the root is available for almost all variants of the Note 3, and hence, if you have the T-Mobile or Sprint variant, you're not excluded.
