I thought it was understood that there is not now or ever will be a marshmallow for the note 3 from Samsung..

Which only leaves aosp and cm based marshmallow .
Ie no touch wiz.

It's just the way samsung works..

If you're gonna be snotty, at least make sure you're right...

On this topic, I like the darkwolf s7 edge port personally.

Just back up the directory to find your specific carrier.

Sof Key Issue

https://idlekernel.com/flash-tools/firmware/hltecan_SM-N900W8VL/N900W8VLU2DOH1



I flashed the idleKernel and my soft-buttons started working as expected again. With the stock kernel, from the N900W8VLU2DOH1 (TLS) ROM, they were borked.

I recently updated from 4.4.2 to lollipop on my Note 3 SM-N900A (Stock Rom - Build N900AUCUEOC1) and have the soft key problem.

I flashed the kernel tar available at https://idlekernel.com/flash-tools/firmware/hlteatt_SM-N900A/N900AUCUEOC1/ and it flashed successfully but the issue still exists. I have read something about doing some additional steps for the flash to stick but dont know if it is applicable here. Can someone help me recover by soft keys?

I tried Telus version from August 2016. Don't see any change. Still Android 5 DOH1.

Still got softkey issue. Back key and Recent app key not responding.

Did someone found a solution for this issue? I found some on the Web but nothing works.

Hello everyone, I was planning to install a custom rom on my note 3 (n900w8)... but the custom rom is for n9005. I saw this thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2471544). "You CAN install N9005 ROMs on an N900W8 device, however you will need an N900T kernel with the N900W8 patch" I am confused on this part. Can someone explain what is needed? Thank you.

Note: im not sure if I can post the custom rom link in here because its from a different website (Dark Au Rom)

Most n9005 roms work just fine on the n900w8 and I have never had to 'patch' a kernel to make it work out of the box. NFC is the only thing not working on any W8 due to different hardware setup. Aryamod is the best s7e/n5 port at the moment.

Fix soft key

I upgraded to N900W8VLU2DPG1 and has a same problem with soft key. Install idlekerner ver 7.1.0 https://idlekernel.com/touchwiz-lollipop/v7.1.0_2016_03_27/ fix the problem. Please chek the kernel version you installed as there are many versions.

Upgrading to N900W8VLU2DPG1 stock and add idlekerner & 5x5 TW Launcher is the best for me so far.
Everything working including NFC and less hassle of crushes or FCs except cannot enjoy all the new and nice features.
But I can live without them.

Peace everyone,
Just a quick question for everyone. I have had this canadian branded phone for quite awhile now. I have been on many different ROMs from Darknote, Dompop, Cm, Darkwolf, Phronesis, etc. As posted above, Im leaning towards going back to complete stock because simple problems sometimes get to me and I would rather have complete function on the phone with good battery life. I would just like to know what list of mods do yall use that would be good for the stock Rom that doesn't break any functions. I love a debloated set-up with sound enhanchments, security patches, custom kernal, unrestricted stock camera and maybe transperancy. Just wanted some ideas on what mods are best for our model. thanx for your input. It will be gladly appreciated.

Hi,

Had anyone been able to enable the Wi-Fi calling feature on Note 3? I have a stock ROM, but looks like this feature is only available in US rom, T-Mobile and Sprint?
