Android 4.4.2 ROM available for the SM-N9005 version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The official update could be just 1 to 2 weeks away from getting rolled out, although by the time it reaches everyone, it could be quite a while. As far as the changes you that can expect from the update, it is said to be similar to the changes found on the Android 4.4.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 found on the Google Play edition. Status bar icon colors have been changed to white, and there have been changes to the lockscreen including adding a shortcut to the camera, and the use of full-screen album art when playing music.
Keep a few things in mind. The test firmware will wipe your current data, so back up your phone. The good news is that installing this test firmware will not void your warranty, although it might brick your phablet if you don't know what you're doing. If you're not sure about installing the ROM, your best bet is to wait for the official release.

Hmmm, I guess we with the exynos(n900) versions are always left out. Samsung is getting on by bad side with their exclusive love for the US. If they don't stop this bullcrap I will switch to an iPhone. At least with an iPhone no matter my country am assured to get the same treatment.

you should have bought a snapdragon note 3 that are available internationally instead of whinning like a crybaby . You should have known exynos are crappy and without LTE before hand . I dont live in the US and i use a Snapdragon note 3 .

Let me check if I can get something in your thick head of yours. There is nothing called *international* version of Note 3, nothing exists like that. The reality is that in certain countries only Exynos-version is shipped. So, if someone is part of those countries, they can either buy the Exynos version or import a Snapdragon version paying extra and without warranty. Do you get it??

I prefer TW. Had CM11 on my S3 in November and definitely missed the UI. I don't know what I'd do without my S-Pen.

you could still use Spen , but you couldnt use all the touchwiz features like action memo , pen window , screen , scrapbooker , airview etc . I only occasionally use action memo and pen window but i liked airview

The new UI for phones will be released with the S5. As it said above, I tried Cm on my s4(before switching to the note 3), and I felt like I am back in ages. I missed the camera with all the modes, the smart stay, watchon, screen modes, group play, and many more. People always wanna take a ride with the bandwagoners, and now its time to hate on TW. If you dont like it, go and flash a google edition rom, or maybe don't buy a Samsung phone at all, how about that?
