Exclamation New Hong Kong firmware available

I successfully used the process in the OP to get my N9005 up and running again (after being soft bricked) with the latest Singapore ROM. Thanks.

But I now see that a new Hong Kong firmware is available on SamMobile (am unable to add link).

I wonder if a direct flash of this ROM would have worked 1st try?

Hi,

There is the last firmware for Hong Kong on samsung-updates.
So,my question is: are there any advantages in European ROM?

Thanks.

P.S. I have 9005 32GB.

But after a lot of reading, experimenting, and praying, I tried this.

1. Download leaked ROM from here: Terafile; Google Docs; Torrent; Storage Cow
2. Extract the 4 files.
3. Fire up Odin 3.09 and put the phone in download mode.
4. Load ONLY CSC file in Odin. (It contains the pit we need)
5. Make sure Re-partition is unchecked.
6. Flash it.
7. Reboot to Download mode.
8. Flash all 4 files normally.
9. Reboot to Kitkat.
10. Enjoy.
Thank you!! This worked perfectly for me. In a matter of minutes! Thanks again!
