Hello kind fellows,
As you can see, I'm a bit of a noob with this stuff, and never been active here before. My friend hangs out here a bunch, and suggested I post this...
I'm not a total idiot, but I admit to being kinda confused about Samsung devices, what with the firmware, baseband, modem, and ROM all being separate things? I know just enough to get my self in trouble, but really pretty good at following directions. Which is how I arrived here.
This is my first Samsung device, and I used CF-autoroot and then some stockish ROM (w/o knox? from freeza?) to get to where I am now. That was ages ago.
Everything runs smooth as hell, and I LOVE this Note3. But since I'm rooted (w/ knox counter tripped), obviously I have not been getting updates.
Looks like I've been missing out on some new stuff.

I'm hoping someone can give me a quick list of "things to flash", in what order, to get to .... looks like NC5d? I want to be totally up to date, rooted w/ custom recovery, and on .... I think Freeza again? newest stock w/ no knox? (unless someone has something better to recommend, a tweeked stockish ROM?)

Thanks for reading!

if anyone needs more info, i'll provide what i can, but the details on how i got here are fuzzy....
also, if there IS a post somewhere that would give me this info, point me in that direction!

Sorry, I'm in the middle of a hockey game (go flyers), but if you haven't figured it out yet, I'm sure someone'll point you in the right direction. (friendly bump for the newb)
Should be fairly easy, a couple Odin flashes and a rom....

No one, guys?
C'mon. I'm just really scared of borking my phone, and frankly I get lost between the leak thread, the stock thread, the twrp stuff... the posts saying "you must be on so and so firmware before flashing this, or bad things blah..."

The best I can do is point you in the direction that I took. I am sure that there are more efficient ways to accomplish this now but when I updated, this method worked perfectly. This method will get you from Mj4 to Nab(d). Once you get to Nab(d) you will be on Kit Kat. From there it takes about 2 minutes to update to the latest firmware and bootloader.

Just go to post #5 in the following thread and follow the directions. Back up your internal memory as it will be wiped out during this process. Also remember once you are on KitKat you can not go back to Jellybean...So do not try!
