Question [Q] [Help Needed] How to flash my Note 3 to stock android

Hello everyone,
I just received my used Note 3 (T-Mobile) today that I bought from ebay, but when I turned it on I found that this phone has a custom rom installed.
As for the moment I don't want a custom rom and I want to use the stock software version on Note 3, can anyone please help me how can I do this???

Phone model is: SM-N900T
Android Version: 4.3
Build number: Darthstalker note 3 version 4

I live outside the USA and it would be nice even that when I flash to stock rom I will have my phone unlocked to use with my SIM cards here on my country.

I was searching a little online and here on the forums but I found that I couldn't flash to stock rom because of the 4.4.2 rom.

If anyone can help me, I will really appreciate it...

Thank You
Regards

Thnx phil,
Another question

I have successfully updated my Note 3 to stock 4.4.2 T-mobile but I haven't seen the new updates that comes with 4.4.2.
For example I don't see the camera icon on the home screen. Or I still have the tabs apps and widgets on the apps homepages.

Did I make anything wrong or I have to install any launcher or something else to make this other changes available.

I attached a screenshot to show you what I mean.

Thank You

P.s
I am sure that I did the update and I am running 4.4.2, at least this is what at the ABOUT DEVICE shows

I still have the tabbed app drawer, which is fine with me. As for the camera shortcut, try settings>device>lockscreen and make sure the setting is selected

Thnx for the fast reply.

I had secured the lock screen with pattern this is why I was not having this feature.
I changed it to swipe and everything is OK now.

As for the tabbed app drawer do you know how I can remove it??? I want to have only the app icons without the tabs showing.

Thnx again

Try hitting the menu button in the app drawer and playing with all the options.
