Question Update to 4.3 Stock ROM, NO KNOX

I was wondering how would I do this. I wanted to flash JediMaster X but im rooted on 4.1.2 Jedi X. How would i go about updating to stock 4.3 without installing knox so i can get the working bootloader then update to Jedi Master X ?

I would prefer if the stock ROM was rooted already and knox removed. Anyway have any links.

Has anyone done this process ?

Hi, even though you are on stock 4.1.2, remember: you have root privileges now. You can flash any ROM designed/built for your particular variant of the Note 2. That simply means stick with flashing ROM that match your device's model number.

Next, I flashed JediMasterX this morning. It is built from stock firmware Android 4.3 for the Note2 so you can flash this ROM, if there's a build for your variant. You don't need to flash the actual firmware to upgrade to 4.3 ROM. All builds in the forum come from source code, which means there is a base design for each kind of phone, but Android is Android and it follows certain predetermined rules.

One thing you need to do is read the OP to whichever ROM it is you are thinking about flashing. The ROM chef is going to place some very important information on the first page where they present their ROM. It is much advised that you follow those guidelines down to the letter. For instance, you want to flash JediMasterX, right? Did you know that the OP mentions that if you haven't already updated to 4.3, (BTW...there are links in the forums for each carrier to download the stock firmware and they're already root and you don't have Knox to worry about!) that you should flash a particular kernel after flashing the ROM. You'll even find a link to the stock 4.3 modem, which is necessary for providing a data connection. That is less necessary than flashing the kernel and the OP explains why.

I hope this has helped. Make sure you have your custom recovery set-up and that you already have a Nandroid backup of your root stock firmware or another ROM you have recently flashed. Always keep a backup, more than one is even better!

Happy Flashing!

Yes I want to flash JediMaster X but I heard that if i don't have the stock bootloader WiFi will be dropping in and out. Support for devil kernel in V2 is being dropped or something (so i wanted a solution in which i don't have to flash devil kernel) so I need to have the stock bootloader to have stable connection. Yeah I was just looking for the simplest process to get everything working on JediMasterX 4.3

I totally understand you. And that's where that kernel I mentioned comes in. It's called the dual-boot or Devil's kernel by @DerTeufel You need to either flash that kernel after flashing the ROM via the Aroma installer. Reboot back into recovery and flash the kernel OR flash the bootloader patch provided by another senior contributor in the forum. That link is somewhere in the OP and you have this option. Download and flash the stock root 4.3 firmware -- it already is Knox free -- for your device. Then flash your downloaded JediMasterX ROM and you won't need to worry about flashing the kernel.

I forgot to mention one other thing. I know that JediMasterX was shared with us earlier in December. One thing of interest, and this is solely for your information...don't go trying it until you're more comfortable with flashing and more importantly recovery! The N7105 is compatible with the T889 and that allows us to flash ROM built for our respective variants. The Devil's kernel was built for the N7105 originally. And I just downloaded a pretty updated -- as of this month -- version of the kernel yesterday. I did read in @DerTeufel's OP for the Devil's kernel that he wouldn't be supporting any requests for changes to the kernel. But the kernel is solid. Has been for quite some time!

Sorry it's taken me long to reply. Wouldn't you know my phones are both drained and I hadn't turned on my computer yet. Anyway, important thing is to read, read, read. I know you might get bored clicking through pages, but it's really cool when you find updates to certain ROM you like buried in those pages instead of posted on the main page. Or you find tips to a having a better experience on the ROM you happen to be on by using a mod listed in a forum. And you can learn a whole lot from everyone in these forums, but reading through the forums will teach you things about root, what you can and cannot do, that no single person can.

Hope this helped! Have fun flashing!

Yea, you're going to download and flash through desktop Odin the stock root 4.3 firmware. You download the zip, unzip and place the .md5 file in PDA of Odin. You'll then need to flash a recovery image through Odin as well so your recovery partition will be ready to flash into recovery and then backup the stock root firmware. Keep it in case you want to go back. And always do a complete wipe in recovery for a clean install of any ROM you flash.

Computer is super slow today. ARgH! lol

I know what you mean and I'm using the official ROM now without Knox

Step 1: Root your phone
Step 2: Install Titanium Backup pro (u can download the APK from apkmania or any other site)
Step 3: Find the apps in the screenshot from Chrome to Mobile life
Step 4: back up each one of them (in case if u need Knox later)
Step 5: uninstall
Step 6: have fun, your phone is Knox free
