Guys

Is there a way to change the default dialer on a Sprint stock rooted Note #3 (NC5)?

When an app access the phone I always get the screen in which I select the dialer to be used and I always hit always yet next time is the same.
I have clear data from the stock dialer no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yes go to this link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2283828 download the free TBOupdater.apk once it is in the phone you can open it there are all kinds of apps some are blacked out some are transparent. There is a blacked out dialer in there you can install on NC5.

If you can't find the app at the link above here is my link https://mega.co.nz/#!cdowBaYQ!Qvnalt...WdSP4aVodfn_5Q just copy this to sd card then click on it and install on your device then just scroll down till you find the dialer and install. The Blackout update app will automatically update it self when you open it.

Your welcome, in case you are having trouble finding it I know I did. Open the app, click on Available Apps, Recently Updated Apps, scroll down to Dual Themed Call App. Download the zip file copy and paste to sdcard, and flash in recovery. Enjoy!!!

First I would make a backup of the rom as close to the way you like it as possible with what ever recovery you are using. Then store it on an ext sdcard or PC. Then you can just do a recovery restore when you want to change back. Mine is on a 32GB ext sdcard, which it seems like a I do a system restore via recovery backup once a day because of all the new things I try to flash. OR use a root explorer type file manager copy and paste the original dialer .apk to an internal or external sdcard. Then you can delete the new one, copy and paste the original back. Be sure to check permissions, they need to be reset to original settings, then power down the device, and when it reboots it will run the original dialer.
