Default [Q]

Hi all,

I have very minimal knowledge when it comes to Android development - I have never flashed a rom, but I have rooted my phone. Recently, I purchased an AT&T Note 3 from my little brother after he had tried his hand at modifying the phone. He rooted it, flashed Knoxraid, didn't like it, and wanted to revert - he removed root, kind of stupidly, before doing anything else. Now, the phone runs Knoxraid, but isn't rooted and I have been unable to get root again. What am I doing wrong, or what don't I understand?

Thank you all.

do you want to revert to stock all together? if so i could walk you through that and you could reroot it.

"How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."

download this here and unzip it when its done http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=25106 its android 4.3 so if you want kitkat make sure that kitkat has a root guide if there is one.

download odin here also https://mega.co.nz/#!UdRRyCAT!H4FyVx...uykgP2pT4rh8Ek unzip it as well
Take out your battery and go into download mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons) open odin and connect your phone (in download mode) to your computer, make sure in odin one of the id:com boxes changes color after you plug in your phone. (i dont know what color it is in odin 3.0.9 i have older samsung phones so older odin name for me lol) select AP and select wherever you put the firmware, Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked after that click start and sit back and watch, be sure to move your files onto your computer if you need any from it like pictures/music.
