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?
#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.
