Hi there,

I was wondering if I could get any help regarding my Note 3. I would like to root the device using a Mac.

AP: N905XXUGBOK6
CP: N9005XXUGBOJ1
CSC: N9005DBTGBOI1

Are there any guides out there using Heimdall? I wasnt able to find any.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Hey there,

thanks for getting back to me

I checked autoroot*chainfire*eu but the Build Number is a different one (LRX21V.N9005XXUGBOA5). Im not sure if this will work?

I know Samsung has different versions of the same ROM (e.g. 4.4.2, 5.01, etc.) and I never worried about that. I would just flash Chainfire's KK if I was running any KK stock ROM or LP file if I was running any stock LP ROM.

If you want to flash it a different way, you could flash TWRP using Odin and then flash supersu from TWRP.

So there are multiple ways to root a device?
Regarding the Chainfires ROMs: "If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device". How do I avoid this? Can I somehow check if my bootloader is unlocked?

Regarding TWRP:

Would those be the two things I need for this method?

1- You have the international variant of note 3 (SM-N9005) and a german region code (CSC=DBT), so yes your bootloader is unlocked.
2- Yes, use "twrp-2.8.7.0-hlte-4.4.img.tar" and you should be good.

- If you want only root and keep your device's warranty, go for CF-Autoroot.
- If you don't mind about warranty, need root and custom recovery for future custom roms, go for TWRP directly.

If I root with CF-Autoroot would it be possible to flash a custom rom later without triggering the KNOX count?
