T-Mobile Alliance Lollipop Rom on ATT Note 3

As you are probably well aware, AT&T has finally decided to bless us with the Lollipop update to our Note 3. Like many of you I rushed to see it in action for myself and was quickly reminded that I don't like the lack of theming options. After all I've been using @RErick 's amazing Alliance ROM found here. Unfortunately, he is going out of country and won't be able to update it to Lollipop just yet. Xposed isn't an option for us Samsung users just yet until they figure out the bootloop option, so that only left trying our closest relatives ROM (Tmobile's Alliance Rom)

I am here to confirm that it does work.

Installation Process:

I was already on stock rooted lollipop before flashing. Here is what I did from there.
1. Downloaded the tmobile alliance ROM from this website to micro sd card
2. Reboot to SS. If you are already on lollipop then you will need the NC2 flasher from here.
3. Wipe
4. Install ROM
5. Reboot to download mode
6. Odin the N900A_OC1_ALL_Other_Stock_Partitions.tar.md5 using Odin's PDA slot.

Phone will take a while to boot. Just be patient.

Issues:
After the phone came up, I went to settings..general..applications...running .... and found every Tmobile app and cleared cache and disabled them. The real important one here is the Visual Voicemail. Otherwise it will keep on trying to contact Tmobile and then you will get text messages saying there is an error.

Wifi Calling is throwing a sim card error (as you would expect). Only problem is it is shown in status bar and lockscreen. I'm sure there is a way to hide it or disable it. I just haven't had a chance to figure it out.

Only thing I would ask is that we be real careful and respectful when posting in the Tmobile Alliance Thread. Do not post there asking why things aren't working or how to get this installed.

Hope this helps.

4. Extract the downloaded meta-inf file and drop it in the 7zip window.
5. Save the file and move it to your micro sd card on your phone.
On phone.

I will use your ROM as soon as you finish. I don't care how much back up or setup time I'll need. Just finish it whenever you can and let us know.

OK, do when you said "on phone", is that a separate process or do I still need to unzip the ROM and use the meta file?

really the rom should install. the kernel will not install any way, so you can install rom as is without moding the script @RErick has the universal partitions so just instll without messing with zip

It just means the first few steps I did on my computer to prep the zip file. You could probably do it on a phone. Then the last few steps was the actual install on the phone.

When I am done with the ATT version there will be a way to boot to safestrap directly from the rom. Safestrap won't be fixed just yet, but it will be a workaround of sorts without a buggy app to use. Also I will include another zip to flash just before reboot so it gives you the right kernel. I've been working on it with the 4.4.4 version for a couple of months. Did anyone not see that you could flash the NC2 kernel from my installer?[emoji6]
It will all be perfect when I'm done. And then any zip that I release will automatically install the 5.0 kernel, but my extra one will be for those flashing other things than what I release in my thread.
