First I would like to thank you for such great community. I am new here and this is my first post.
I bought Chinese Note 3 a week ago. And after using it for a little, I realized that Google Play services doesn't get installed because of its Custom ROM. I searched over and over again on Google XDA, and i tried following things:
- I found at one place that there is no official CWM recovery for SM-N900. But, I managed it to install via MTK Tools.
- I can't try Odin because on pressing Volume Down + Power + Home buttons shows some Chinese menu.
- Could't install TWRP dont know why.
Custom ROM Installation
After installing Recovery, I tried to install custom ROMs. I have tried about 5 ROMs listed below:
- Hawkish Elite Series
- VN ROM
- Criskelo ROM
All these ROMs either get stuck while installing (some at 10%, some at 44% etc.), or suddenly recovery screen shows up with no confirmation about ROM installed successfully or aborted or what.
I HAVE RECOVERY: autoCWM v22.214.171.124 for SM-N900
Please help. I bought this phone just a week ago after saving money about 1 month. Thanks for your help in advance
