Hello guys,

First sry for my bad englisch, im from germany and my englisch isnt that good

im trying to downgrade my Note 3 (running on N9005XXSGBPL6/DBT/STOCK ANDROID 5.0) to Stock Android 4.4.2.
I have tryed already like any available stock 4.4.2 roms, but Either my device does not start and stucks at the samsung logo and ends up in a boot loop, or it freezes after the first few seconds after the boot.
I dont know what to do, i have tryed to wipe the cache and the data but it still doesnt work.
I also tryed different USB ports and different versions of odin.
I really want to have android 4.4.2 on my note 3 because it runs much better than 5.0, has less errors and uses less ram.

Maybe someone knows a solution for my problem.

I'm not sure about your note 3 but some Samsung phones do not allow downgrading the bootloader from 5.0 to 4.4.2.

Were you able to successfully flash a stock 4.4.2 ROM with Odin?

Did you confirm that the bootloader and modem are also at 4.4.2?

The app phone info says: Bootloader-Version: N9005XXSGBPL6
I think thats the 5.0 bootloader?

Yes, it looks like the phone is still on a 5.0 bootloader. If the ROM and modem are on 4.4.2, this is probably why things are not working well.

I downgraded from stock 5.0 to Omega 4.4.2 no problem. Nothing special, not even a clean install. Everything working great for 2 years now.
