KitKat 4.4.2 ROM must update the BL and they is no chances revert back to older 4.3 ROM.

That was corrected shortly after - I'm aware of this.

-Your data will be wiped. So, back it up!
- You are doing this at your OWN risk. We are not responsible if you brick your device or your cat eats your phone.
- It will NOT increase your binary counter NOR void your warranty.
- This test firmware is a pre-release build and not official from Samsung.



Step 1
Extract (unzip) the firmware file
Extract Odin v3.09.ZIP file

Step 2
Restart phone in download mode (Press and hold Home + Power + Volume down buttons)

Step 3
Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin

Step 4
Add AP_N9005XXUENA6_340325_REV03_user_low_ship_MULTI_C ERT.tar.md5 to AP
Add BL_N9005XXUENA6_340325_REV03_user_low_ship_MULTI_C ERT.tar.md5 to BL
Add CP_N9005XXUENA2_REV03_CL1277177.tar.md5 to CP
Add CSC_OXX_N9005OXXENA5_327209_REV03_user_low_ship_MU LTI_CERT.tar.md5 to CSC

Note No need to update bootloader as suggest in #2

Step 5
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked

Step 6
Click start button, relax and wait a few minutes and phone will restart.
