✔ Best Answer
The experts over at xda-developers are the ones I trust most when it comes to rooting an android device. I used their guides when I rooted my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. I see you've already lodged an enquiry in their forums in regards to your task. Myself, I would await their further instructions.

Given your query about build numbers I can see that your device is very recent. I would imagine that they are in the process of analysing it for exploits. There is a possibility you can revert to an older firmware (to root) given that the hardware is likely identical but that is only a guess on my part and I personally wouldn't attempt it before they give you the green light.

Analysing your firmware number it is build #1, February, 2015

The firmware number that is different from yours is build #2, August, 2014, which is likely to be the most recent successful stable root.

The last three characters is a date indicator:

Hi btk1w1
Thanks so much for the detailed reply!!!
Very helpfull in many ways.
I rooted my old htc desire with cyanogenmod a few years ago and that "hooked" me. :-)
I am replying with my SS Galaxy Note 10.1 which is also rooted - works great!
I am playing with a shell program and doing some "white hat" on my tablet now.

The info on the SS phone explanation was great......

No problems Marty,

These devices are capable of so much more when they're freed from their shackles aren't they?

I especially like jailbreaking any Apple device I can get my hands on. I do it mainly for customisation purposes and for the odd workaround these manufacturers don't want you to be able to do with the hardware.

There are so many talented software engineers and hackers out there, I'm happy they share their work.

Oh...I love toying with the "MAC" folks.....

Linux people - oh, a new upgrade for 0$ - cool
Win people - oh, a new upgrade - uh no thanks I will do it myself
Mac people - oh, a new upgrade - and only 100$ - sold!

Anyway; I digress - once again thanks!
