Will contact Saudi Service center support tomorrow and if it dont go well then I will try the last resort Chainfire App..

You have two options. First get a permanent unlock code. There are many sites online selling it. I have one for my n9005 which I bought from gaffar market ( The seller gave me the unlock code).
You just have to enter it once. It costs around 1000 bucks maybe.

Second, I guess after inserting your saudi sim card install the region lock away app. And follow the instructions inside the app. After that if you will insert the indian sim card I think it will work.

Hey Vikas,

Thanks for your response.

I did placed an order for the unlocking code for $20 from a leading unlocking codes provider and this is failed. The phones from Saudi Arabia and their IMEI unlocking codes are difficult to found. I did received the money back though..

I think if the Saudi Customer support do not help me then I will be left with no option other than regional lock away app.. I think I am heading towards it with all the options disappearing one by one..

How much did you get ut for in Saudi? I bought my N9005 in India for 41k a two months ago. It was factory unlocked. But mine was a european model. Where are you located? If in mumbai you can head to manish market to get it unlocked. Plenty of shops there who do it for reasonable price.

Exclamation Instructions please..
I recently purchased SM-N900 in Bangalore, India.
Here are the details:


Someone please guide me on the following..
1. Can I use Kingoapp to root the device?
2. Can I install a Kitkat custom rom without first upgrading to stock Kitkat?
3. The ROM I want to install is VN-ROM (link below).. Is it good or do you have any suggestions for me?

Do not use Kingo Or Vroot they are not good option. Try chainfire method for samsung it is always best for samsung though you will trip knox and warranty will be void. Use the file in first for your phone as it is exynos aka indian aka international variant How to root Note 3 easily

And yes you can flash Kitkat based ROM without updating to official release and the ROM you want to try is great for your purpose
