Exclamation Samsung note 3 n9005 ( european model ) IMEI and software problem

Hello,
I'm from Egypt I bought a note 3 n9005 european sim model

-from settings my phone reads different IMEI than the one written on the phone under the battery.

-The network goes down to emergency call only but never asked me for unlock PIN

-someone installed for me android 4.4.2 that deleted all options like air gestures and all other Samsung stuffs

- In settings menu the phone model n9000 ( -_- )
- I wanted to return the phone to stock settings, firmware and unlock it.
- I think knox already tripped ( how to check it ? )
- I downloaded a file with extensionBTU- N9005XXUDMJ7 (mar.tdr5) 1.36GB + Odin 3.07 + usb driver.
Do I need anything else because it's my first time flash an android phone.

Thanks in advance

Switch on the phone by pressing power+home+volume down. This will take you to download mode. Knox status will be displayed there.

If you are on 4.4.2, you can't downgrade to MJ7.

I have no idea how you managed to get a new with a new ROM.
But you can always try flashing the ROM you downloaded. You don't need anything else. Just read a couple of guides on Odin flashing.

Sounds like someone flashed CM for you --- Settings > about device and tell us what OS it is and what version

Just don't post your IMEI number here

If your model is showing N9000 it's from a CM build being installed, especially if you lost Samsung features.. as for the IMEI issue we'll investigate that soon as we know what we are actually dealing with

Yup just as I suspected... OK

Follow this

Open ODIN, put your phone into download mode connect your phone, load the .md5 file into the PDA option on ODIN and press start. It will reflash your stock Samsung back to normal.

_these command leads to an error ( sometimes it works and the imei is also different than under the battrey )

-I think that's coz of the region lock

Once you flash back to normal Stock Samsung it'll be better to grasp the IMEI errors, when dialling *#06# into the keypad it adds an extra number with a / mine is /01 iirc. for now, how about we get you back to Stock then sort the rest as we are unsure what is what.
// LG G3 (D855) // Stock // Stock //
