Ok, since the old thread was plagued with paid roms, and it got archived unfortunately, I'm creating a new thread. Let's keep this healthy and clean so the information we post here wont get removed and will help more people in the long run shall we?

Update: May 3, 2014 - Added fix for Caller ID issue!

Update: May 1, 2014 - Added instructions to turn off Google Account Manager after setting up a Google Account

Update: April 9, 2014 - Added instructions to install super su after flashing new firmware and rooting.

Update: Feb 17, 2014 - Added instructions to turn off Google Bookmarks Sync after setting up a Google Account

Useful links:

How to Install/Flash Google Apps on Galaxy Note 3 N9002:

** Please note that if you are using windows 7 to root the device using cf autoroot as instructed in the link above, you will encounter an error halfway thru the flashing process. You need to run odin 1.85 as windows xp to remedy this.

** Please note that after rooting and flashing google apps thru cwm, you will still have root access but the super su app may get lost. If that happens, please install super su from the google play store and everything will be back to normal. - thanks bigstuart for pointing that out

To fix the gapps error we see everytime we turn on the sync shortcut from the pulldown notification bar:

After setting up your google account, go to the settings menu and turn off the google bookmarks sync app. This will fix the google services has stopped error message.

To fix the google account dropping out (having to set up your google account again) turn off the google account manager app from the settings menu. Three users have confirmed this has fixed the issue.

BigStuart was able to finally find a way to fix our caller ID issue. Here's how to get it done:

Edit /system/csc/others.xml

change
Code:
<CscFeature_RIL_CallerIdMatchingDigit>11</CscFeature_RIL_CallerIdMatchingDigit>
to
Code:
<CscFeature_RIL_CallerIdMatchingDigit>-1</CscFeature_RIL_CallerIdMatchingDigit>
and add the following line:

Code:
<CscFeature_Contact_EnableDynCallerIdMatchingDigitWithAutoSim>TRUE</CscFeature_Contact_EnableDynCallerIdMatchingDigitWithAutoSim>
I added that line at the end of the file, before the closing </SamsungMobileFeature> tag.

Then reboot the phone and test caller ID

Lastly, enjoy your dual sim flagship device

n9002
thanks for making a new thread... am really interested in the n9002 but having second thoughts that i have to root it and it will have no samsung warranty. can i ask those who are using it now... (will use it if ever in the philippines)
1. once rooted and google play install do one need to root again if you hard reset your unit?
2. does rooting trip knox?
3. is there much chinese bloatware that you cannot delete?
4. problems encountered the unit being released only in china?

Good thinking on this Thread. The archived thread had some links to removing bloatware and dealing with issues like changing CSC. Wish they didn't delete it. Now we have to re-search and save them all over again.

1. once rooted and google play install do one need to root again if you hard reset your unit?
Shouldn't. I have rooted using RDLV and have reset w/o loosing root.

2. does rooting trip knox?
It did on mine. But there seems to be some who have done it without tripping Knox. Check the forum.

3. is there much chinese bloatware that you cannot delete?
[COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"]Once you root you can remove almost everything. Search the forum for a list of prog you can safely delete[/COLOR].

4. problems encountered the unit being released only in china?
[COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"]None really. You can add Google apps, ie Play, Mail, Hangouts, Calendar. If you change the CSC settings, you will be able to set your default search, calender, etc. But read up on how to do that first, you need to back up as it will cause a reboot and loss of data.[/COLOR]

Who gives a crap about knox anyway? This is a phone from China, if you will import it to another country, it will not have local warranty. You are not gonna send it to China if ever you need it repaired right? So go ahead and root, flash google apps, and remove all those chinese crapwares.

Im driving right now, but if needed still, i will post a link for a guide on how to do the basics in turning the n9002 to something as close as possible to n9005.

What, the last one got archived!? It was a bit long but got me off to a start and the RIP made it even better. Anyway, I best not mention that.
Well I have checked back because today I just added my 2nd sim. That's 1 Unicom, and 1 China Mobile (some westerners do live in China). It's working and the beauty is: Unicom's data seems good, but China Mobile 's national and international call rates seem better.
I am still interested in getting the best out of my N9002. I am still having a few issues and it's hard to know if they are ROM based or other. Anyway, minor issues, this phone is the best I have owned.
