Hi guys

I bought the Note 3, I'm trying to put TWRP recovery on. But there is a note saying

Use the 4.3 version of TWRP if you have never upgraded kitkat bootloader. Otherwise make sure you use the 4.4 version. These versions of TWRP have different DTBs and will fail to boot if you do not match your bootloader.


So, how do I know if I have which bootloader?

Get an app from tge Play store. It's called Info. Here is the link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.app.info

You will find there what you need. Good luck!

Can you check if I have the correct bootloader installed?

I can not make any phone calls at the moment, I get "com.android.phone as stopped" error. Is something wrong with the bootloader, or kernel or the rom or something else?

Please help me. I can not call or receive any calls, I miss talking to my mom.
