I have Note 3 N9005XXUENC2... recently i have updated it to 4.4.2 usin OTA, but now after update it hangs some time. There is no fix app on which it hangs, sometimes it hangs even in opening the dialer. I have tried doing a reset from recovery and wiped the cash also but still the problem is same.
plz help....

I am thinking of trying official 4.4.2 firmware of some other region may be it could solve the problem
Which region should I try for it ???
can I directly flash it through odin..??? will it trip the Knox???

Search for samsung phone info in playstore to check you region or csc.
You could keep the same region as your current phone. Just download the firmware from sammobile or samsung live updates. Then flash with odin. Flashing official fw won't trip knox
Edit:
Just to be safe don't downgrade to 4.3 if you do care about knox. Also it could soft brick your phone

OTA updates can sometimes cause issues with people's devices, try the Odin method.

Flashing directly via Odin can fix the issues OTA update brings.

plug your phone into your computer open Kies and it will tell you your phone's country then download firmware from sammobile or through Kies if they have an update for you.

Another tip after you do full wipe don't install any app and try phone for 1 day.
