Hi guys!

As you know, flashing of the older firmware is not possible because of the boot secure into bootloader.
But there is a way to downgrade the firmware without flashing bootloader that can't be to downgrade. But unfortunately it will increase the value KNOX WARRANTY BIT 0x1.
So I extracted parts of the firmware for your convenience and an opportunity to downgrade or flashing individual parts of stock firmware..
AP = Android Platform
BL = Bootloader
CP = Modem (radio)
CSC = Region & mobile operator
pit = Partition table

So does this mean we can now get a recovery and thus flash away. Maybe I'm not understanding what's happening here. Please go easy on me fellas.

Now you can all...
You can extract any part to package into tar and flash it... but not bootloader
You can extract recovery.img, change stock recovery on cwm
You can extract system.img via dsixda kitchen and build custom zip...
You can analysis pit file and will know partition table for backup efs...
And more different things...


May be this thread better to move into development part
there she probably would have been more useful

A.S., it sounds to me as you started an era of possible custom ROMs development for our N900A. Am I right?

The question I have since the first day with my phone is if it would be possible to flash the stock ROM of the N9005 (international version of the Note3) in this N900A variant. I do not use the phone in the AT&T network and would love to get rid of all AT&T stuff.

Even having the booloader locket, would this method let us able to do that?

Thanks!

No, I'm hasn't n900a, but has n900 (exinos octa) and don't wanna to experiment with n900a...
To me was interesting to see firmware n900a, but don't find it.
So I extracted this from oneclickbin.exe and uploaded for users...
