I have the Nexus devices (5 and 7) and it was a breeze to to configure the phone (rooting, etc.) and easier because there is only one version of the phone. Now I have the T-Mobile Note 3, I tried to read as much as I can but there are so many questions due to the many variables on the phone (carrier version, locked bootloader, etc.) So I thought I will ask those I couldn't find the answers.

My phone is rooted using Kingosoft, KNOX is not tripped and on stock ROM with T-Mobile SIM card.

Problem: Wi-fi instability
Often times, the Note 3 will lose connection to my home Wi-Fi. I have not changed anything on my router and the Nexus 5 and 7 works fine - no disconnection. The Note 3 is connected to 5Ghz N with WPA-PSK and dynamic IP address. Any fix on this?

Q1. Text-to-speech
How do I change the this to use Google's instead of Samsung S-Voice? When I got to Settings, only S-Voice is selectable. I want to change it for navigation purposes

Q2. Home button - double click
Any change to configure this for something else, like Google Search? I've frozen S-Voice so double-clicking the button now does..nothing.

Q3. Disable My Magazine swipe-up
Quite often I accidentally swiped-up. Any way to disable this?

Q4. WTH is Beaming Service for Beep'nGo??
Went to Google Play --> My Apps and there is a new update for Beep'nGo. I did not install this, but I found out I cannot disable this - I could not find it under Titanium or Application Manager. How do I disable this? I am sure it's running in the background and eating battery of some sort

Q5. What is safe to Greenify?
From Nexus 5, there are just a few built-in apps in Greenify. But with the Note 3, there are tons of them, not including the apps I installed. Which one of these I can disable? See screenshot below.

U can hibernate any app but system apps. As for your phone goes, id suggest flashing a stock image via odin to see if your problems persist...

I am referring to question related to the configuration, not problem that will be fixed by "reset" or restore to stock ROM. Example:

Q1: Changing text-to-speech --> out of the box, it default to S-Voice --> doesn't matter if I restore to stock

Q4: Beepn'Go --> out of the box, it exist --> doesn't matter if I restore to stock

...and so on.

1)
For TTS, Google TTS is now available for installing from the play store. Did you install that?
I did, and can select it. It also has HD on Google TTS now.
I am running stock un-rooted Kitkat.

2)
For double click, download a free app from Play Store "S for Switch Voice"

1). TTS
That's interesting.. I know Google TTS is installed out of the box, but when I went to Google Play, there is nothing under "My Apps" to UPDATE this. When I search for Google TTS, it said I can "install" it. So for some reason it was not installed in my Note 3, BUT it exist under Settings. I'll try to install it

2). Double Click
I disabled S-Voice (freeze using TB). Do I have to unfreeze this to get this to work?

1) Great. Lemme know if it worked after installation.
2) I think mostly yes, you have to unfreeze it, as the app launches Google Voice Search when S-Voice is activated. But I am not sure. You can always try it and let us know
