Default [Q] Trouble with SM-N9006

Noob here. I just bought a Samsung Galaxy note 3 on Craiglist and looks like I have been ripped off. This is a China model SM-N9006. Wifi is not working. So, I looked here and found out I can root the phone and install CWM maybe ?

I downloaded the files and when I try to put the phone download mode by pressing vol down + home + power .. it went into a menu in Chinese. I didn;t where to go from here.

What are my options for rooting ?

Should I buy mobile ODIN pro ? would that be easier ?

Please advise.

This is a fake device. The bezel around the screen is too wide. Sorry for the bad news i hope you did not pay a lot.

Can I still use it though ? If I can fix it ? Does it work like note 3 or not ?

DO NOT attempt to flash anything meant for the official note 3 devices on that thing or it will be a complete brick. Odin will likely not work, nor will mobile odin, most likely. This is a ripoff device and doesn't have the same hardware or even software.

Check the op here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2574886

There are a couple links in there where you might find help with your knock off device.

I just typed one of the Samsung dialer codes *#0*# and it showed me the test menu.
Can the phone still be fake ?

Yes, the screen you posted immediately identifies it as a fake.

There are also tools in the play store you can install to determine the hardware. I'd still recommend reading the link I posted as well.

Expensive paperweight mate Try to get your money back from the vendor or go to the police if he advertised the phone as a genuine Note 3.
