Hi,

A couple of months ago i rooted my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE and now i have decided i wanted to unroot.
I wanted to unroot so i could easily update my phone again through samsung update as it wont let me if phone is rooted.

I went into SuperSU and pressed Full Unroot and rebooted my phone. After reboot i had lost root as planned, but when i tryed updating through
the update on my phone it still said my device was rooted.

I decided i wanted to go back to original factory stock firmware through odin.
I am able to find my firmware but cant find the same build number.

i wanted to ask does the build number change when samsung bring out an update or will my build number always be the same?

Here my phone details

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE
Im on EE
UK

Model number: SM-N5005
Android version: 4.3
Baseband version: N9005XXUDMJ7
Build number: JSS15J.N9005XXUDMJ

Im trying to search the internet for the Original Stock firmware but all im finding on websites (Including this website)

is this firmware

Region: EVR (everything everywhere) UK
PDA: N9005XXUDML3 (different to my Current)
Changelist: 2019540
Android: 4.3
Build date: 12/12/2013

i havent updated since october 2013 due to being rooted and i hope to go to kitkat soon.

Am i able to use this firmware with a different build number?

Thank you for any help.
proberly a silly question but i need to ask before i do something wrong that could have been prevented.

MJ7 --> M= 2013 J= October
ML3 --> M=2013 L= December

M= 13 letter
J= 10 letter
L= 12 letter

You can upgrade from MJ7 to ML3 like I made from MJ7 to ML2.
Downgrade from MJ7 for one before not.

The build number is the firmware that come with. It will not harm your devices as long as the firmware is updated version. If your are updating to KitKat, you will not be able to downgrade to 4.3. Save your EFS file.
