thought the WIFI network connection is really good.
My Note 3 does not connect to the Samsung Kies software, even after repeated attempts to instal Samsung drivers and the latest Kies software on my Windows laptop. It does not connect with the Kies Mac version either....so i have no hope of upgrading the firmware via Kies.
I tried to root the phone manually by getting into download mode to root it with Odin 3.09...the phone does not respond to the button press combo on Volume Down + Home Button+ Power button presses...it only responds to the Volume Up + Power Button press, where it enters into a black screen mode with words like " PRESS VOLUME DOWN TO SELECT RECOVERY MODE, FAST BOOT OR NORMAL BOOT, PRESS VOLUME UP TO CHOOSE"...Pressing these buttons leads me nowhere and i have to long-press the power button to restart the phone.
I am getting really frustrated trying to upgrade the firmware....what am i doing wrong? The Note 3 model i have is a genuine model because i tested it with *#0*#....i am however worried about the SPen..it is metallic and heavy with a small black tip.
