I think my phone is asian! I just flashed the latest taiwan firmware released (N9005ZSUGOC3_N9005OZSGOC3_BRI) after flashing the new bootloader and everything works now!

I'm not sure what actually made it work since this is the first taiwan firmware I tried (its all XEO and BOB previously), but big thanks to everyone who helped! Now I'm trying to find out how to get his rooted, wish me luck!

I just installed lollipop 5.0 polish firmware 01-03-2015 version from http://www.sammobile.com with odin

The install on my Note 3 went well, with no issues and the phone works fine

The only issue is I still have the samsung bloatware apps on the phone that I wanted to get rid of by installing the new firmware

I also still have all my previously installed apps on the phone after firmware update

I would like to know how I get a fresh install of lollipop on my phone, with no previous apps or bloatware ?

I guess I have to reset the phone to factory settings, before installing the new firmware file is this correct ?

TIA :good:

Galaxy Note 3 WIFI issue Lollipop 5

Recently updated my Note 3 9005 to Lollipop 5 and all I had
is problems

1- Wifi Dropping out as soon as you move away from the router 1-meter range
2- Bluetooth issues voice not clear and connection dropping out.
3- Battery Drains Quickly
4- Generally the device sluggish

1. I have done a full reset,
2. cleared the cache in recovery mode
3. Took the device to Samsung Shop 50 miles away and they reloaded software and still no luck
4. disabled Mobile Data Mode
5. *#0011# advanced wifi power saver switch

Is there anything you suggest guys that might work please?

I have a NOTE 3 SM-N9005, it belongs to UAE. There is no official Lollipop update for it.
Can I flash this on it ? Is CSC matters in this case ?
Please advise.

I installed this rom a few days ago and I've had to factory reset my phone multiple times. Not sure exactly how but it happens when wifi/bluetooth is on and this sends my phone into a endless bootloop until i factory reset it. Is this happening because of my baseband ( N9005XXEGBNL8) or is it something else?

Try to fi d and download N9005XXUGBNL8 which contains seperate BL, AP, CP, CSC.... u can use HLTE_EUR_OPEN.pit.

SM-N9005 Official Lollipop Upgrade for Australia

Hi guys,

Would someone be kind enough to help me? I have a SM-N9005 32GB Note 3. I believe that it may be the sprint model if that makes a difference as under the device name you can change it had SM-N900P as per below.

The phone is brand new and came with Kitkat 4.4.4 and I live in Australia All I want to do is put an official version of Lollipop 5.0 or above onto it. I don't want a modified one.

Thanks in advance for your help :)

Device Name - SM-N900P
Model Number - SM-N9005
Baseband Version - N9005XXUGNG1

    Confused on how to install Android 5.0 Lollipop? Fear not. This guide have you covered :D

    So to start this. We need some things.

    Now that we have everything we need. Let's start. :D
    THIS WILL ERASE/FACTORY RESET YOUR NOTE 3. So take a backup of your important stuff

    Extract the ROM zip file.

    Once extracted. Open Odin and set up Odin as follows.
    FOR 32GB Model

    FOR 16GB Model

    Now click START :D
    Once done reboot your device. 16GB users will have to goto Recovery and factory reset

    First boot will take longer than expected. Leave it alone for about 10 minutes.

    And after some time. You will be greeted with the glorious Android 5.0 screen. :D

    Video Guide. :D

    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.

    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:

    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:

    You can ask the developers of S4 LTE-A for that. :D

    So glad to see this :D Is this leak for the international Note3 ? Does it incluede French language ? Did you see any bug on this leak ? And last question, if the flash goes wrong, how can I use the backup PIT ? :)
    Many thanks for sharing this leak ! :)

    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. :)

    I install it on my N9005 it include french and Italian and many other i dont flash bootloader and pit file for now everything it's ok only the WiFi issue!!!i must to put the key wen I restart or close the wireless.

    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

    Sorry if is a dumb question, is the first time i try to flash a rom for this device, i have a n900w8 and odin shows me repartitio error, even with repartition unchecked, is ther any chance to install this rom on the n900w8? i think it has the same hardware as the n9005.

    Thanks in advance

    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.


    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
