If you've got a Galaxy Note 10.1 handy and a hankering for root-enabled fun, noted modder mskip has just posted an initial version of his extensive Toolkit for the Samsung tablet to the XDA developers forum. We've seen these before for all kinds of hardware, most recently the Galaxy Note 8.0, and they're great as a one-stop shop for advanced user operations. The toolkit requires a Windows PC, but beyond that it's got everything you should need to start rooting and modding the Note 10.1.


Here's the full list if tools and operations included in the Galaxy Note 10.1 Toolkit:


  • Install drivers automatically
  • Backup/Restore a single package or all apps, user data and Internal Storage
  • Backup your /data/media (virtual SD Card) to your PC for a Full Safe backup of data
  • Perform a FULL NANDROID Backup of your system via adb and save in Custom Recovery format on your PC
  • Pull /data and /system folders, compress to a .tar file and save to your PC
  • Auto Update ToolKit to latest push version on startup (professional feature)
  • Dump selected Phone Partitions, compress to a .zip file with md5 and save to your PC
  • Install BusyBox binary on phone
  • ROOT ANY PUBLIC BUILD (different options available)
  • [B]Root with Superuser (Clockworkmod) or SuperSU (Chainfire) via CWM (works on ANY build)
  • Install any zip file via Sideload feature in Recovery

  • Rename Recovery Restore files if present

  • Pull Files from your phone to your PC
  • Set Files Permissions on your phone
  • Dump selected LogCat buffers to your PC
  • Dump Bug Report to your PC (if installed)
  • Help, Information Screen for various tasks
  • Mods Section to Modify your phone
  • Reboot Phone options in adb mode
  • Change background, text colour in ToolKit

The toolkit works for all four standard versions of the Galaxy Note 10.1: the GT-N8000 (international GSM+WiFi), GT-N8005 (GSM with cellular calling disabled), GT-N8010 (standard WiFi), and GT-N8013 (U.S. model WiFi). At the moment the N8000 and N8010 models are in the testing phase - see the XDA thread for details. Verizon's LTE version, the SCH-i925, is not supported. A reasonable £4 ($6) donation adds the ability for the toolkit to auto-update - everything else is included in the the free version.

It goes without saying that you need to know your way arout root and custom recovery tools, as well as the basic Windows Command Prompt, before using mskip's toolkit. But I said it anyway.
