Ketan, how can we upgrade (using odin) to the latest rom without bootloader?

I mean, not the mk4 leak... the official packages that will come in ONE md5 file...

How to skip bootloader?

In that case you have to either use mobile odin
Or
Need to repack rom file

The much awaited Android .3 for Note 2 is officially released today. When can we get the firmware Dr. Ketan, with your golden touch.

Interesting..! mobile odin skips flashing bootloader, so we have to just use it and then apply your patch (wifi), right?

For repacking... do you have any quick link for some documentation about it?

I'll make some search I'm really interested on that opportunity

You needs linux or cygwin
Simply you need to extract file with unzip, remove sboot.bin,param.bin and tz.img
Rest of file you have to repack to make odin flashable tar

Hi, I want to try out the stock rom 4.3 which has just been released. Currently i am on DN3 V2. i will be making a back up of the rom. Can i just flash the new stock rom from odin ? Is there anything i need to keep in mind ?

You have stated once a user upgrades there is no going back right ? so, can't i remove knox in the official update after i have it upgraded? plus what role does a bootloader play ? why is it important not to have the bootloader that comes along with the latest official update ?

Dr. Ketan...is param.bin and tz.img a part of the bootloader? I saw that your wifi patch contains these two.. are these from the mj5 tar package? I tried to search about tz.img and param.bin but i couldn't find much info about what exactly they do..
Any info is appreciated..

Just a quick question, I am currently running android 412 on wanamlitev3.9 and intent to ipgrade to mk4 andeve all been made aware that we need to upgrade bootloader. Looking at this thread appears that may not be the case? Just download and flash the rom and if wifi dorsnt work then flash the wifi patch. -- is that the sum of it? Bearing in mind ill still be on a old bootloader. Unless the wifi patch is a bootloader? Confused
