I had JB 4.3 already installed with root on my N7105, but last month came a new minor update called N7105ZHEML. This is for Hong Kong versions of the Galaxy Note II LTE. This seems a fairly exotic update, as I couldn't find much info about it and I had to scramble from dozens of various sources with more or less success. The update installed without a glitch via Odin, but I couldn't get the phone to re-root nor could I get back to my old NAND backup, as the phone didn't seem to restart properly after a restore. So you can imagine that I got slightly nervous...

Please note that this is for the N7105 (LTE version) and the Hong Kong Version of the latest 4.3 update, called N7105ZHEML.
It might work for other hard or software too, but I can't be sure.
Do everything on your own risk, as you can easily lose all your data or even worse, brick your phone if you don't know what you're doing!

Anyway, here is what worked for me, hope this helps somebody:

Check new N7105 firmware: http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/1...7105&pcode=TGY

1. Backup using ROM Manager/NAND
2. Backup using Titanium
3. Download new ROM file, unzip it
4. Open Odin 3.09, Click AP/PDA and choose N7105ZHUENA1_N7105ZZHENA1_N7105ZHEML1.tar.md5
5. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
6. Turn off phone, then press Vol Down, Home and Power until boots
7. press Vol Up (Continue)
8. Connect to USB, Odin should turn blue
9. Click Start, wait till phone boots (takes really long time, incl. Media Database update)
10. Do not disconnect until PASSED! shows up in Odin

Install TWRP Recovery:
Check here for updated TWRP: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/125
1. Open Odin 3.09, Click AP/PDA and choose openrecovery-twrp-2.7.0.0-t0lte.img.tar
2. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
3. Turn off phone, then press Vol Down, Home and Power until boots
4. press Vol Up (Continue)
5. Connect to USB, Odin should turn blue
6. Click Start, wait till phone boots

De-Knox, BusyBox and Re-Root with PowerBoxV2:
Check here for updated PowerBox: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2651601
1. Boot into TWRP Recovery: Turn off phone, then press Vol UP, Home and Power until boots (can be done without booting up after installing TWRP)
2. Remove SD Card, copy Powerbox_v2.zip to root of SD card
3. Install ZIP file from TWRP
4. Run PowerBox, choose only first option (DeKnox, BusyBox and Root), execute
5. Clear Cache and Dalvik
6. Reboot

If Superuser doesn't install or root doesn't work correctly:
1. First try to install SuperSU from GooglePlay

If this fails:
1. Download UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip for TWRP from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053
2. Copy it to root of SD card
3. Boot into TWRP Recovery: Turn off phone, then press Vol UP, Home and Power until boots
4. Install ZIP file from TWRP
5. Reboot

Boot into Bootloader: Turn off phone, then press Vol DOWN, Home and Power until boots
Boot into Recovery: Turn off phone, then press Vol UP, Home and Power until boots
