I really can't find the answer here or anywhere. (i've been searching all morning)
I've been reading allot about it but know is me question.
Is my note 3 Branded or not and can i just install stock 4.4.2 and then flash X-note or any other custom firmware?

Device Information:
Model
SM-N9005

Baseband:
N9005XXUENA2

Kernel:
3.4.0-348029

Buildnumber:
KOTH49H.N9005XXUENA7


Now according do this it is just a normal Note 3. I have another carrier in it with LTE working and everything is working.
BUT When i boot the phone there is a t-mobile boot animation. (thats all i can find of t-mobile in and on the phone)

I know T-mobile does this with all there phones and my last Note 2 had this to and i could just Root and Flash all i wanted like it was a normal version. Now can i also do that with this Note 3. And how can i know the difference between a T-mobile Note 3 and a International One.

Its probably only the T-Mobile bootanimation which is added. Should be fine to root it and flash custom roms on it if you want. Search in the T-Mobile thread for more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-3-tmobile to be sure.

Thanks, i tried that but i don't know what to search for. i tried everything i could think of (english is not my native language). And nothing comes up. I already reader and searched trough it manually in the topics if i could find something but i couldn't.

Suggestions on how you specifically call this? I tried Branded, Unbranded, International note or T-mobile and all variations i could think of

I guess you have a SM-N900T, look in the link in my above post for how to root it and which roms//mods are available. Look in device info for the correct model number or in the Phone Info app from Play as linked above.
