You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.


Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged ‚ÄĒ at least 50% battery of the device.

 icon-check-circle STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‚ÄėAbout device‚Äô option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SM-N9005!

Do not use the procedures discussed here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. This is not for any other variant of NOTE 3 either, so don’t try this on SM-N9000, or NOTE 3 variants at Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, US Cellular, etc. You have been warned!

 icon-archive STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.



You must have proper and working driver installed on your windows computer to be able to successfully flash the Android 4.4.2 based N9005XXUENA6 firmware on your Samsung Galaxy NOTE 3 LTE. In case you’re not sure, follow the link below for a definitive guide for installing driver for your Galaxy NOTE 3 on your computer.




Download the CF Auto Root file given below and transfer it to a separate folder on your computer (just to keep things tidy, that is).


DOWNLOAD LINK | File name: CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.zip (21.11 MB)


  Example video: If you haven’t used Odin before to flash a file on your phone before, then we suggest you first watch a video of that to get familiar with the process. The video demonstrates flashing of a Recovery on Galaxy S3, but since the procedure is same, the video will help: Click here to watch the video

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing the CF Auto Root, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  1. Extract/Unzip the CF-Auto-Root file, CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.zip on your computer (using 7-zip free software, preferably). You’ll get the following files:
    • Odin3-v1.85.exe
    • CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5
  2. Disconnect the Galaxy NOTE 3 from PC if it is connected.
  3. Double-click the Odin3-v1.85.exe file to open Odin.
  4. Boot your Galaxy NOTE 3 LTE into Download Mode:
    • Power off your phone first and wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off
    • Press and hold these 3 buttons together¬†until¬†you see¬†Warning!¬†screen:¬†Volume Down + Power + Home
    • Press Volume Up now to continue to Download Mode
  5. Connect your Galaxy NOTE 3 to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box.
    If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:
    • Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy NOTE 3 LTE as said above in ‚ÄėBefore you begin..‚Äô section.
    • If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and reinstall back.
    • Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
    • Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your phone should work best, if not, try any other cable that‚Äôs new and of good quality.
    • Reboot phone and PC and then try again.
  6. Load the firmware file (extracted in Step 2) into Odin as instructed below:
    • Click on the¬†PDA¬†button on Odin and select the¬†CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.zip¬†file (from step 2). Your Odin window should look like the screenshot below:
      Root GALAXY NOTE 3 on N9005XXUENA6 Firmware
  7. Now in the Option section of Odin, make sure that Re-Partition box is unchecked. (Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes remain checked, while all other boxes remain unchecked.)
  8. Double check the above two steps.
  9. Click the Start button to begin flashing leaked Android 4.4.2 N9005XXUENA6 firmware on your Galaxy NOTE 3 LTE SM-N9005, and wait until you see a PASS! message in Odin’s top left box.
  10. When you get PASS! message, your phone will restart automatically. You can then disconnect your phone from PC.

If you see FAIL message instead of the PASS in Odin’s top left box, that’s a problem. Try this now: disconnect your Galaxy NOTE 3 from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 2 of this guide again.

Also, If device is Stuck at setup connection or on any other process, then too, try this: disconnect your Galaxy NOTE 3 from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 2 of this guide again.

NOTE: It may happen that your phone doesn’t automatically boot into recovery and root your phone. In that case follow the following above procedure except that in Step 7, Auto Reboot option is un-checked and then the instructions below:

  • Pull out the battery and re-insert it.
  • Boot your Samsung Galaxy NOTE 3 into¬†Recovery Mode:¬†Press and hold these 3 buttons together:¬†Volume Up + Power + Home.
  • Now, this will start the rooting process and will reboot the phone automatically when the process is done.

That’s all. If you need help regarding this, feel free to ask us in comments below.
