Before flashing we need to make a backup of your PIT file just incase something goes wrong. And to do so open Command Prompt and execute the following commands.

Code:
adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/My-N9005.pit bs=1 skip=17408 count=4244"
adb pull /sdcard/My-N9005.pit

Now that will create a backup of your PIT File as a failsafe. :fingers-crossed:

Also port for other devices?

Hey,
are there any chances or possibilities for porting this rom also to another device? E.g. the S4 LTE-A, which has "exactly" the same hardware as the note 3 i guess, it also has the snapdragon 800, so i think it might not be too difficult to port this rom also for this device, someone who can tell me something about that?:good::victory:

The fact the Xposed won't work with Android v5.0 at present makes a no go for me. I can't see how I can do without about 6 or 7 key Xposed modules. It's a real shame

No, I don't think you can flash it, this isn't the same model event if the hardware look same. Maybe a little difference who made ****. But I don't think you can. I'll try it later ^^

A question, @Sewrizer, the wifi patch you give us, we have to pass with a custom recovery ? I don't want to pass my Knox to 1 ^^ I think i'll wait if their is a wifi bug, my wifi code is too long to enter it each time wifi reboot...

Not Working

adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/My-N9005.pit bs=1 skip=17408 count=4244"

Now that will create a backup of your PIT File as a failsafe. :fingers-crossed:

I tried the above commands on my phone but get - error device not found ??
My phone is the SM-N9005 so why won't the back up work. I do have a full CWM backup will that do ?

I'll post a guide about PIT later on sometime. It'll have things like "What is PIT?" "How to Backup?" "How to restore?" "How to revive soft bricked Note 3's" and all. Do remind me after the New Year and I'll make one. :)

WiFi issue might be solved by flashing this. Thanks @Sewrizer. I personally did not test it and also discourages flashing it as Lollipop includes many new changes to WiFi drivers while the zip file is meant for KitKat. EDIT: Instead of flashing that file. Try this. And also try to move the Q/A's there. :) Let's try to keep this an organized thread. :D

THIS GUIDE IS FOR SM-N9005
Please read the OP. ThankYou. :D

its not working for note 3 sm n9005

Can you elaborate more on why it isn't working with your Note 3? I've tried the same on my phone and I didn't have a single issue. :)

This willnot work for the ATT version will it?

It will not. But you can ask your developers of ATT version to create ports or some themes to look-a-like until the official leak pops up.

I tried the above commands on my phone but get - error device not found ??
My phone is the SM-N9005 so why won't the back up work. I do have a full CWM backup will that do ?

Have you set up your ADB properly? Also do you have Samsung USB drivers installed?

Quick question:

Can I downgrade to KK? I Want to try this FW but (surely) keeping KK because of Xposed compatibility.

Thanks!!

I personally did not try but many have said that you can successfully downgrade to KitKat after flashing Lollipop into their devices. Please do confirm with other members on the forum. :)

    Successfully install lollipop on my note 3 n9005 32gb(No Root)

    step I have done,
    1. enable usb debugging
    2. Do not tick re-partition (ONLY AUTO REBOOT and F.RESET TIME)
    3. Put in BL,AP,CP and CSC ( exclude PIT )
    4. Enter download mode from phone (power + volume down + home button)
    5. connect phone and once odin detected the connected phone press START
    6. Wait about 10-15 minute then it will auto reboot and wait another 5 minute
    7. Done

    Mine everything works well - no wifi issue, no proximate sensor problem, s-view window working well too :D
