  1. Download and Extract N8020XDBMA2_N8020OROBMA1_ORO.zip to get a file with .tar extension in the unzipped folder.
  2. You will then extract Odin zip file to get Odin3 v3.07.exe.

  4. You will then put your Galaxy Note 10.1 N8020 LTE tablet in Download Mode by pressing and holding down the Volume Down button, alongside Home and the Power button, until the screen flashes the Samsung Logo. After a few seconds of that, the tablet will enter download mode.
  5. Run Odin3 v3.07.exe with Administrator rights.
  6. Now that you are all prepared to root your tablet, connect your Galaxy Note 10.1 N8020 LTE with your PC. You will then see a notification appear in Odin in the bottom left saying “Added!!”. If for some reason, you do not see the said notification, try another USB port. If that too doesn’t work, then reinstall the USB driver. Once you successfully see the “Added!!” notification in Odin, you are good to go.

    • Click the ‘CSC’ Button, and select file with *csc* in its name (Ignore, if this file does not file exist).
    • Click the ‘PIT’ Button, and select the .pit file. Use only if you got it while extracting in step 1 above, otherwise ignore it.
    • In Odin window, make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are selected. Please make sure that Re-Partition checkbox is selected, only if you are using a .pit file.
  8. Hit the ‘START’ button to begin the flashing process.
    Once the flashing process is completed, the tablet will automatically reboot and you will see a ‘Green’ PASS notification in the top-left-most box. You can unplug the device from the computer now.
