Hi

Here is the way i used to flash the firmware, i advise to backup all your data before the flash.
All the files here are provided without any waranty.
Flash at your own risks.

Remember that go back to 4.3 is impossible after this procedure.
You may too void your knox counter when you attempt to root your device...



Click the pictures to open the root of the Mirror and find others goodies.

- Flash The Firmware :

First: Set the reactivation lock setting of your phone to OFF.
Be sure the battery of the phone is full.

- Uninstall Kies if you have it on your computer to avoid conflicts.
- Download PC Odin and Install / update the drivers from Samsung[/URL], that's all you need.
- Best and safe way is to use the original stock usb3 cable and make the job on a portable computer with his own power supply (battery connected).

1 - Download the latest repacked rom in this folder and extract it.

This is pure stock rom with only Multi-CSC OXXEND2 added.
Currently, this rom contain 19 Country Codes:
BGL, CYO, ERO, MSR, ORX, PHE, ROM, SEB, SEE, SIO, TEB, TOP, TPH, TRA, TSR, TWO, XEF, XEH, XSK
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File. More safe in my opinion.

If you need another CSC, maybe one of then is yours:

The Multi-CSC VFGENA4, 19 Country Codes:
ATL, CNX, CYV, MOB, MTL, OMN, PRO, SIM, SWC, TCL, TOP, VD2, VDC, VDF, VDH, VDI, VGR, VOD, XFV
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The Multi-CSC OLBEND1, 10 Country Codes:
GLB, MM1, SIN, SMA, STH, THL, XME, XSP, XTC, XTE (Asia)
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The Multi-CSC OXAEND1, 5 Country Codes:
BTU, DBT, ITV, XEF, XEO
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The Multi-CSC OJVENB2, 3 Country Codes:
KSA, XFM, XSI
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The CSC ITVEND1, 1 Country Code:
ITV (Italy)
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The CSC ZZHENE3, 1 Country Code:
TGY (Hong Kong) - The attached modem ZHUENE2 is here.
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

The CSC VNZDMJ4, 1 Country Code:
VNZ (New Zealand)
The csc parts are from 4.3 rom but are confirmed working fine.
As it have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.

Three others CSC for specifics operators in France.
As they have a small sized hidden partition there is no need of any PIT File.
Check at the bottom of this post for French thread.

Just grab the one you want and put it in CSC in PC ODIN during the same flash process and it first flash the CSC inclued in the firmware, and then overwrite the CSC with the one you added.

2 - Download CF Auto Root for KitKat from Chainfire ODIN version.
Extract the tar.md5 file inside the zip to use with pc odin.

3 - Download the custom recovery PhilZ Touch ODIN version.

I advise to apply this unlock procedure before anything to avoid flash errors:
-> You need Triangle Away from Chainfire with a root acces granted.
Free version is avaible but consider to support the dev for his great job...
a/ Install the app on your phone.
b/ Run Triangle Away and Reset Flash Counter - Follow exactly what the program ask.
At the time to choose the way to reboot after the reset is done in recovery, choose reboot in download mode and then start the flash process immediatly.
4 - In download mode flash the file that you had previously downloaded N9005-hlte_PDA-xxxxxxx_CSC-xxxxxxx_MODEMS-xxxxxxx_REPACK.tar.md5 with PC Odin in AP.
Do not forget to check/enable the Phone Bootloader Update option in pc odin. (seems working nevertheless without this option ticked)
Leave all others one by default.
Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked.

If you have an error (size error - Your phone may mismatch with this rom, another Samsung lock...) as odin fail at the end of the flash process.
- Shutdown the phone, disconnect the battery, disconnect the phone from your computer and wait a minute, return to download mode.
- Download and flash the file wich contain the CSC that you want.


5 - Auto self-reboot, let the stock recovery do his work completly (the green android man).

If you don't want to install root and a custom recovery, you can stop here.

6 - Go back download mode, flash the PhilZ Touch recovery with pc odin in AP.

7 - Again, in download flash, CF Auto Root with pc odin in AP, let the installation process terminate.
Note: If you were previously rooted, jump this step and download, If not yet done, SuperSu to update by flashing the file in custom recovery..
In this case, re-flash CF Auto Root will loose all your settings of SuperSu...
8 - Download the fix for the ExtSdCard issue and flash it in custom recovery.
This is a Google security restriction, unnecessary to wait for a fix from Google, just from developpers of apps. Quick way is to apply this fix.

9 - Don't forget BusyBox which should be usefull too.

- About Mobile Odin :

As Mobile Odin seems to be unable to update the bootloader, don't use this one to avoid brick issues when operate with a different rom version than you have.
If you are already on the same firmware, you can use Mobile Odin to re-flash the rom or any other single part:
- Copy the file on your phone.
- Open this file in Mobile Odin.
- Enable EverRoot and Inject Superuser (SuperSu) in case of a system flashing.
- Choose to reboot in Recovery when you flash System and Cache partitions. If not, you may have problems regarding the CSC.
- Start Flashing.
- Do not skip md5 check to gain a little time. (For the life of your phone...)

- Issues :
All theses solutions were tested by me and worked for me, but without any other warranty.

The CSC region code or version are invisibles, the CSC folder is missing in system/.
The stock samsung keyboard crash often once booted.
You need another CSC (warning, you wil loose all your datas and settings, change for another CSC perform a wipe of the phone)
- Check here for the file you need, download and extract it.
-> Apply the Unlock Procedure.
- Flash the file N9005-hlte_CSC_xxxxxxx_RECOVERY-xxxxxxx_REPACK.tar.md5 with pc odin in CSC.

The Modem is not updated.
Download and extract the .tar.md5 modem file.
-> Apply the Unlock Procedure.
- Flash the file that you had previously downloaded N9005-hlte_MODEMS_xxxxxxx_REPACK.tar.md5 with pc odin in CP.
- Reboot normally.

The Bootloader is not updated.
You can check by using this app.
-> Download and extract the .tar.md5 bootloader file.
-> Apply the Unlock Procedure.
- Flash the file N9005-hlte_BL_xxxxxxx_REPACK.tar.md5 with pc odin in BL and check/enable the Phone Bootloader Update option.
- Reboot normally.

Flash player doesn't work anymore.
-> Install Firefox last up to date version and the original latest apk from adobe, nothing else to do.
-> If you prefer Dolphin, download the special version of adobe flash player, more here.
Maybe someone make an xposed module later, it should be a dream...

This fix seems working with this rom (bootloop efs corrupted related).
Not personally affected, just tested the flash.
Download here too.

After all this procedure, you should be fine, upgraded and with all yours datas and settings...
At this state, i just made a wipe of the cache and dalvik cache with phil'z recovery.

- Tune :

- Enable Init.d Support.

- To simply restore the sound at the (de)connection of the charger, you can install this app.

- If you want an imaged battery, you can use RECOVERY - SystemUI N9005 xxxxxxx MOD tkari4-Version by tkari4 based on the guide from parkhyb.
Basically revert to the old 4.3 style for battery and network icons.

Just Flash the mod with any custom recovery.
To revert back to the original situation, just flash in custom recovery the file RECOVERY - SystemUI xxxxxxx ODEX STOCK. (STOCK ODEX version)
You can use my blue battery mod. (I reworked a little the graphics for a better scale.) Just extract the .rar archive and install normally the apk Inside, you need too a working Xposed Framework installed.
You can find other Xposed compatibles battery Mods here.
Just reboot once installed.
Many Thanks to tkari4 for keeping alive his mod.

- The repacks i made still works fine.

The rom repacks are made by me with this tool.

Many thanks and credits to all the persons who made this possible.

Notes:

As i do not have the time to download/extract all the roms, if someone needs another CSC repack for him or just to share, please post here with a link for the extracted CSC files only (cache.img.ext4 - hidden.img.ext4) related and with all the details (region, full code name, original rom it come from ... )
To unpack a .tar.md5 file, simply rename it as .tar and extract the content with any good archive software.
I will centralize here.
All others requests in any another form will be ignored, thanks for understanding.

To keep as simply and clear as possible, i will maintain on the Mirror and on thread only the latest updated rom, so if you put elsewhere any link from here, it may be broken in the time, the only ones which would be permanent is the one of the folder and the one of this thread. If you Mirror any file, thanks to keep credits.
Keep a local copy of the downloaded files if you think you will need then later as the content should be updated here.
I maintain the updates only for multi-csc repacks and keep others ones in the mirror, if you need one of theses mono-csc wich is not updated with the latest recovery avaible, simply ask here...

French users, clone thread is here.

Just press thanks if i helped.

Yes, every day i do.
And i saw no thread that talk about merging two différents roms to make a new one for a specific country, centralize all the majors tools with direct download links for correct versions to avoid confusions between JB & KK, that i often saw, and attached xda threads, and too provide others files needed at the same place for my device (n9005)

Maybe i had read the forum more often than you think...

Sincerly.

You made a thread, Others made a thread, i made a thread too, i just wanted to simply share my experience in another form, without any other pretention.
You seems to have a problem about that, not me.
You have time to waste, not me.
I'm not interested to play to the one that has the biggest.
