Default [Q] (Help) Change Model Number Back!

Hi all,

Some time ago, I was troubleshooting one of the many ossues I have had with my phone. During the troubleshooting, one of the steps was to change the Note 3 model number to that of an S4. That would have effectively resolved the issue.

Now some time has passed, and having the phone identified as an S4 is causing other problems. I cant find the original thread though, and I cant remember which file I changed.

I remember going into Root Browser, and looking up a file. I opened the file in text editor, and changed SM900W8 to SMH I337 or something like that.

Anyone know where that file is? I need to change my model back because of compatibility issues
