hey guys i was wondering if anyone could help me with installing the latest build of xnote 10.0 for my n9005


i am currently using the xnote 7.0 rom which is 4.3
my baseband is n900AUCUBMJ5
kernel is 3.4.0-1625098 se.infra@SEP-121#1
and my version of xnote is XXUDML2
i currently have safestrap installed as my recovery
i am rooted as well


the xnote note instructions read as the following


"
[SIZE="1"]ONLY IF COMING FROM ANDROID 4.3

FIRST DO THIS, SKIP IF ALREADY DONE CLICK H E R E

So you need a 4.4.2 official firmware already installed, a working KITKAT recovery and ROOT to backup EFS (use chainfire root for KITKAT)

1- Untick reactivation lock in security settings
2- do a EFS backup from your KitKat firmware
3- check the MD5 of your downloaded X-Note zip
4- reboot recovery
5- wipe data (don't do other wipes)
6- install zip and choose the rom in your sd
7- follow aroma, wait for first boot, done
.
[/SIZE]"

so my question is do i need to follow those instructions in order to flash from the old xnote 7 to xnote 10 and if so where do i find the download link for the 4.4.2 official poland firmware. (will the langauge be in polish) and will it completely wipe my device in any part of this process and do i need to install a different or newer recovery

thanks for all the help in advance

theres a couple of threads in the general section of this forum to download 4.4.2 - The language won't be Polish as you get to choose on setup wizard.

It won't wipe your device using Odin to flash it - although it's advisable you do wipe.

Lastest CWM by Chenglu - PhilZ Adavanced CWM - TWRP are all Kitkat compatible now. -- remember you don't need to root to install a custom recovery.

Not 100% sure with using safestrap, you'd have to check the safestrap thread for advice.

Using safestrap automatically throws a spanner in the works due to the way it's handled flashing etc, there won't be a simple way with this but there are ways.

well in that case do you know of a way for me to reflash to a different recovery?

im sort of becoming overwhelmed with this process.

i understand how to flash roms pretty well and have been following the xda community for about two years now ive learned and read enough posts to not be a complete idiot anymore. this process however has kinda screwed with my head and im nervous to attempt to update to 10.0 without clearer instructions
