Question Upgrading stock JB Rom to Custom Kit Kat?

Hi Sifus,

I owned a SM-N9005 Note 3, with Stock MJ1 Rom, rooted with CF-Auto and installed with TWRP (hlte) 4.3.

So I understood that once upgrading to KK, there's currently no way to downgrade back to JB thus taking this pre-caution to ask for advices. (correct me if I'm wrong)

I am intended to upgrade my Note 3 to a custom KK ROM (eg: XRom, Omega Rom, etc...) however, I am not too sure what's the next step I need to take?

(A) Since I'm rooted with TWRP, go ahead and download the ROM from developer and follow instructions to flash?
(B) Since I'm still with JB, I need to flash to Stock KK before flashing any custom KK ROM?
(C) Other better ways?

Regards,

#1: Goto http://SamMobile.com and download the latest official stock
KK 4.4.2 firmware for your phone's model Note 3 (N9005).
#2: Download cf-autoroot from: http://download.chainfire.eu/352/CF-...xx-smn9005.zip
#3: Unzip cf-autoroot into an empty folder on your computer's desktop
and copy the new odin flash kk firmware and twrp into the same folder.
#4: The cf-autoroot zip file comes with Odin which is needed to flash
the stock official firmware, cf-autoroot and twrp recovery.
#5: Download TWRP from here: http://goo.im/devs/OpenRecovery/hlte...te-4.4.img.tar
#6: Perform a full wipe including Wipe Data, System, Cache, Dalvik and
last but not least a factory reset in twrp recovery.
#7: Odin flash the stock official firmware which you have downloaded.
#8: Odin flash cf-autoroot.
#9: Odin flash twrp recovery.

Once you have done the above you will be able to flash any of the zip
file custom roms which are designed for the Note 3 N9005 phone.

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
