    So if I root my Note 2 will I have any issues with my verizon plan? I have insurance on my phone and I want to keep the insurance intact.

    • Sorry Jason, I don’t have Verizon Galaxy Note 2. No idea about that.

        Rooting will void the warranty but all you have to do is unroot before making a insurance claim. Unrooting is just as easy as rooting and Verizon will never know as long as you don’t let them.

    Hi. I need the internal memory of my sgn2 to be detected as a mass storage device because I am trying to scan for deleted files. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • Alex

    By the way, my sgn2 is rooted.

    • Sorry Alex, you can’t enable internal storage as USB mass storage. Try undelete app from Play Store instead.
