Default Flashing kitkat bootloader problem

Hello, I am new to android. Please guide me how to update bootloader to kitkat. It is N5110ZNCB1, can I update my bootloader to kitkat released in UK. I have flash latest recovery through Odin still I am not able to flash bootloader. Also tell me the procedure of flashing kitkat firmware on my note 8.0 N5110. I have flash through Odin but I fail to do so. Please please please take out some time for me and guide me, I really want to update my note 8.0

Hello,
I have a note 8 aswell GT-N5100 though and it has a bootloader from china, but i just managed to flash it with samsungs current STOCK ROM for poland.
First i would ask what error is odin3 giving..? If you already tried flashing please download the UK ROM for your GT-N5110 from http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ follow the instructions on the sight to update your device via odin3..
If it stops at modem.bin like mine did then follow the instructions on this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2626778 to root your device. The minute you root it it will reboot and that's it..
Welcome to KIT-KAT
Hope this helps
Good Luck

The error is the procedure starts and then fail in between by saying that unable to flash tz.img. I am following the method as civz has tell but cannot flash bootloader. Through recovery I have flash civz rom but wifi is not working. And my device is 5110, which is only wifi not 3G. Please reply me as soon as possible. Thanx in advance

I have tried this method as well but still fail. I flash rom without bootloader upgrading, but my wifi is not working. And when I flash stock kitkat firmware I get this error----NAND write start fail
