I had the Poland N9005XXUGBOB6 on my Note 3 and flashed the Saudi Arabia N9005XXUGBOEA without any wipe. I still have my german language and the device runs smooth.

I would strongly advice to flash the brand new "Nordic Countries" version released yesterday!
I tested both the Saudi Arabia version, that still has partial troubles with Bluetooth and video play, and yesterday the Nordic Countries that is much advanced in terms of release number

The "nordic countries" is very very good, according to my tests and a few other users in an Italian forum
Bluetooth finally working great and battery management even better!!

Can you provide alternate link? Also are there preinstalled apps (carrier/country) and if there are can they be removed without root?

I haven't installled it yet, but I'm guessing by the file size of cache.img and hidden.img that it may have some bloatware.
Even without root, it may be possible to uninstall, or if not, you can disable the apps.
You can also try to create and flash your own CSC package.

Were you rooted or had a custom recovery? your baseband is still far behind. It seems Lollipop roms need to be flashed twice in order to have baseband/kernel updated, this is an issue with devices that have a custom twrp before flashing an official odin package.

Not rooted (it was rooted with 4.4.2 but I lost that with the poland release) and no custom rom yet. I'm still Knox 0.

Since I read about the Nordic Countries Version, I'll give that a shot tonight. And I'll try the flash-twice for the modem. But after flashing the saudi arabian version I had a much better 4g performance than before.

Ok, flashing was easy, worked like a charme and updated my modem to POF3 in one go. I'll test the new Build over the next days :)

N9005XXUGBOE9 for DBT is finally out. Could anyone tell what changelist is?

Any fast mirror?

Thanks.

PS: a lot of people says that Nordic N9005XXUGPOF3 rom is the latest one. But its changelist is 4935104. Saudi Arabia one isn't better as it's 5020004? And what about Malasyan/singapore ones? No italian in it? Thanks again.

Here is my story...

I have an Australian unlocked N9005. First flashed to Poland 9005XXUGBOB6 without any issues, then flashed to Saudi Arabia N9005XXUGBOEA without any issues either.

To me the Saudi Arabia rom is smoother and more responsive than the Poland rom. For once I was tempted to flash to Nordic N9005XXUGPOF3. After finding out the changelist being 4935104, I'd rather stay with Saudi Arabia rom with changelist 5020004.

What about Unified Daemon bug? Has been in fixed Saudi Arabia rom?

I have tried Nordic N9005XXUGPOF3 but Unified Daemon have already downloaded 30 MB in less than 24 hours and drained my battery a lot... :/

    Flash with keeping Root + Knox 0x0!

    Flash with keeping Root + Knox 0x0!

    Note : In This method, your bootloader will not upgrade, and maybe have some bugs!

    DISCLAIMER: I will NOT be held responsible if you lose your Warranty, if you trigger KNOX or if your phone bursts into flames. I'm merely describing what I did and what worked for me (I have bootloader version N9005VJUEND1).

    Prerequisites:

    • IMPORTANT: Phone with rooted KitKat firmware installed. (This is an ABSOLUTE necessity, since Mobile Odin DOES NOT support Lollipop!)
    • MobileOdin Pro v4.20
    • Latest SuperSu ZIP installer (v2.45 or higher!)
    • Lollipop ROM (.tar.md5 file)
    Instructions:

    • Purchase and install Mobile Odin Pro
    • Put SuperSU zip in a folder in your SD Card (external SD recommended)
    • Put Lollipop ROM (TAR.MD5) in your SD Card (external SD recommended)
    • On Mobile Odin Pro, touch on "Open file ..." load the TAR.MD5 file and confirm
    • Then touch on "OTA / Update ZIP" and select the SuperSU Zip
    • Make sure "Enable EverRoot" box is UNCHECKED.
    • Check "Wipe Dalvik Cache"
    • Recommended but not mandatory: check "Wipe Data and Cache"
    • Touch Flash Firmware and wait.
    • Now, you're in Lollipop with Root and Knox 0x0!
