Default [Q] Problems Upgrading to 4.4.2

Hi all

Long time lurking and now hoping to pass some knowledge i have learned onto other but at the minute i have a problem myself.

I have a Note 3 running Baseband N9005XXUENB1 Build number KOT49H.N9005ZHUENB5 which given the keyboard settings i believe it is the Hng Kong firmware.

I want to use a stable UK firmware like the Vodafone one N9005XXUENB4_N9005VFGENA4_N9005XXUENB1_HOME.tar.md 5 however everytime i try to flash using odin 3.09 it fails.

I am using an original USB cable and tried different USB ports.

Any ideas what is going wrong?

Can anyone suggest a version which will work?

Can we get an exact copy of the error you get on Odin please?

As the 16GB Hong Kong Note 3s have a different partition layout, you might have gotten that an error.

You're trying to flash a vodafone rom... This is a carrier rom...
Look for the UK rom that has a csc with BTU as this is the open rom...
