I'm currently running Jedi Elite V5, which is a 4.3 ROM, and I finally got around to looking into updating to a 4.4.x Kitkat version of Jedi Elite, but the thread says that I need to Odin the official 4.4.2 bootloader and reroot, and I can't find a download source or a guide to unroofing for this specific device.
I'm so rusty with all of this since I've been doing more car stuff than computer stuff the past 10 months (got a new car, been trying to engine swap it, broke some stuff, had to rebuild the trans TWICE, etc) so please forgive my lack of up-to-date knowledge!
Before doing anything else you need to download and odin flash the official
stock Samsung N900T Kitkat NF1 4.4.2 firmware from http://SamMobile.com
or any other trusted source. After you have successfully flashed the firmware
follow the step by step guide below:
(be sure to do a full wipe before flashing the firmware)
#1: Download cf-autoroot for N900T:
#2: Download twrp custom recovery for N900T:
#3: Unzip the contents of cf-autoroot into an empty folder on your desktop
#4: Copy twrp custom recovery into the the same folder you created
#5: Flash the cf-autoroot with Odin windows app which is in your new folder
using "download mode" of the phone
#6: Flash the twrp recovery using download mode of the phone with Odin
#7: After both cf-autoroot and and twrp recovery are odin flashed successfully
you can either keep your stock N900T firmware or you can boot into twrp recovery
and flash any of the compatible zip file roms found in this forum.
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).
