    It can be done, but using a Mac with non-Nexus devices can be a pain.

    Here is the link to the Verizon Note 2 XDA forum. You should look here for rooting and rom'ing.

    With the Note II, you should be able to use Chainfire's ExynosAbuse apk to root the phone in a single step... at least, that is what I did with my AT&T Note II.

    I used the same guys other tutorial to root my AT&T Note 2 on my Mac--not difficult at all, took about 5-10 min total. Only thing he left off the guide was to make sure you have USB Debugging option turned on in Developer settings (problematic if you're not familiar with rooting yet, thankfully wasn't my first time).

    One of the main resources I've used for a long time, & learned a lot from is XDA.

    Once you learn it, rooting is a snap.

    XDA is a wealth of info for nearly every device sold anywhere.
