You need to download and Odin flash the official stock N900T NE6 firmware.
Here is the direct fast download link for it:
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23501681358537528
The zip file also contains Odin, CF-Autoroot and TWRP 2.7.0.1 recovery.
Unzip the file into a new folder in windows desktop.

Be sure to go into recovery before Odin flashing NE6 and do a factory data reset
and a full wipe. Then Odin flash the TAR/MD5 firmware.
After successful odin flash, put the phone into download mode again and
flash cf-autoroot and the TWRP 2.7.0.1 tar files.

If you want more information and or instructions here is the link:

Good luck!

Exclamation ???
Ok So I did all the above and it worked good. I have all the New "Features". However, Baseband is still NB4 while the Build Version is NE6. Shall i try to fix this or leave well enough alone?

run triangle away v3.26.apk from chainfire, when you apply the info. it will shut down, power off, then boot to bootloader and flash firmware, that was the easiest way for the modem, baseband to stick....

Fix it! I think the baseband is partly to blame for the the data drops in nb4. And I'm getting way better battery life as well. To get the new baseband to stick download Triangle Away then reflash in Odin. Worked for me. Id recommend you wipe your data too. http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...v3-10-t1494114

Use Triangle Away to reset your flash counter and make it official. Then flash NE6 with Odin/Mobile Odin to get latest baseband.

Just did this today, you need to be on a stock samsung kernel for triangle away the warning is VERY clear in the app. Personally, when a developer says "do it this way, or you will have a problem" I take their advice.

Read carefully and follow ALL of the instructions very carefully as well.

There are at least two different threads covering how to flash this. One has "stock ODEX" {{ http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2713354 }}, the other has "stock Deodexed" {{ http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2761451 }}


Good luck

There is "NO" way to update officially to NE6 if you have rooted, modded, used a custom recovery in the past on you Note 3.

If you have tripped knox in any way, you will already have the bootloader you need to be on, and can flash the new stock rom from the forum.

If you have not tripped knox, have no custom recovery, have never done anything to your phone, then you are free to get the update as TMO pushes it out.
