Install Official Android 5.0 Lollipop Firmware on Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900

Leaked firmwares are common nowadays,  and the most popular amongst these leaks are those of Samsung devices. Following the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop,  several OEMs started to roll out the latest update for their flagships,  while those which had their release planned were flowed too,  with leaks. Most of these firmwares are previews or beta builds of the upcoming release that are about to follow. You can use these leaked ROMs to get a snippet of the features that are about to come over with the official release, but on the sake of stability or even bugs.

Lately we have attempted to install a surprise leak of Lollipop firmware on the Galaxy Note 3, which has gained popularity over time. And recently we’ve been glad to observe that the official Android 5.0 Lollipop has been released for Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900). The official build is a direct release from Samsung with all the Lollipop features along with it and is already claimed to be stable.

    Hi, Rakesh… i want to know that i have installed Samsung Kies on my laptop so now do I have need to install samsung drivers to update my note3 SM-N900 ???

  • It was released months ago.

  • Muneeb

    will samsung officially release lollipop on note 3 SM-N900?

  • No, you can’t!

  • Kc Davis Legita

    Hi! Can I install this on my Note 3 SM-N900L?

  • Use the Devhost or Sammobile mirror links.

  • If you want OTA updates in future, you must the install the firmware with the same CSC it has originally. However, if you have been using the device in Lebanon and have purchased it some other country, you won’t get OTA’s from Samsung. You can go with the UAE firmware.

  • George Esber

    also i would like to ask you a question : i live in lebanon where i bought my note 3 and the nearest country where the update is available online is UAE , do you think i should download this version? or something else? and will i still get updates OTA? please reply soon! and thank you in advance

  • George Esber

    hi rakesh i’ve been trying for 2 weeks to download a firmware for my sm-n900 to update it to lollipop and the firmware always stops at about 180MB and when i restart my pc it does not solve anything! please help

  • No.

  • davon edwards

    What exactly do I need to do?

  • It’s not for the AT&T version. Browse this tag to find the correct firmware for your phone.

  • Arnold Linson

    can i install this on docomo variant? SM-n900D SC-01F?

  • davon edwards

    Can I do this with an unlocked note 3 n900a with android 4.4.2.

  • Christopher Botes

    yes the firmware works perfectly just format your phone once done. It will even feel better then the note 4

  • Jakkie de vries

    I updated my SM-N9005 with great ease, but I’m struggling to find a ROM that is AS stable (per review) as the N9005 version. Any ideas / links to the right place to download? It’s sounds like people are struggling with the SM-N900 a little bit. – South Africa

  • Jakkie de vries

    Het jy reg gekom met Lolipop Firmware? Ek wil my SM-N900 ook ROOT na Lolipop. Ek het my Sm-n9005 maklik geroot, sukkel net met die SMn900. Is bang ek probeer die verkeerde een.

  • Vik Singh Dogra

    OK here is the lesson for people who buy stuff online, the Hong Kong firmware is the one which works for eBay phones( most of the time).
    I tried almost every firmware and while doing that one of friend (who had similar experience) asked me if I had tried HK firmware. All sorted out well. on mine one even kies wasn’t responding.
    Cheers

  • Look, with all new softwares, battery drain and overheating are common issues. Don’t worry about that. Wait for a week and everything will be Okay.

  • Aj Qureshi

    Thanks for the reply.
    Well the only thing left for me is a factory reset. I actually did a cache wipe yesterday and now my note boots up but only gives me FC non stop for all the apps I got installed. Trying to figure out a way.

    I have a friend who also has a note and exchanged the battery to see if things were better . But unfortunately it’s the same. What do you think.?

  • You should try a data factory reset: http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-perform-data-factory-reset-and-wipe-cache-on-samsung-galaxy-devices/

    If you still see no improvement, get a new battery.

  • Aj Qureshi

    Hey.

    Ive got a SM-N900. And im currently on KK. Ive got a stupid problem. I can barely get half a day battery life on this. the battery dies up fast. I did notice that if i disable the WiFi then my battery usage is pretty low.

    Ive heard that Lollipop also has a high battery drainage rate. I was thinking. If i upgraded to Lollipop. Would i face a high battery usage?

    I need to get thru atleast a day. I have a mega 6.3 and i can easily get 12hours+.

    Can u plz advise If Lollipop is a better choice.

    Thanks in advance.

    hello sir i have galaxy note 3 n900 in pakistan sir tell me will updating my phone via odin my phone will not recieve updates in future is it is right??

  • Great!

  • Ehsan Sheikh

    Thank you for your assistance Rakesh. Push notifications on the Indian firmware seem to be working fine. Thanks once again. Love from Pakistan!

  • Yes, I am. I have tried that 2 times. If you get a bootloop, do this: http://www.droidviews.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=39824&action=edit

  • Ehsan Sheikh

    are you sure? no extra precautions to take when downgrading?

  • Yes.

  • Ehsan Sheikh

    Thank you for the prompt reply Rakesh. Moreover, can i downgrade to kitkat with the same procedure?

  • Yes, the Indian firmware would work better for you. Follow the same procedure and perform a wipe afte the update.

  • Ehsan Sheikh

    Hello Rakesh. First of all, i’d like to thank you for uploading this guide. A few days back i updated my npte 3 n900 to lollipop by the above mentioned method. However, now i am facing an issue where I am unable to receive push notifications on mobile data. Is this becuase I’m using the russian firmware in Pakistan? I believe the phone keeps looking for the russian network signals and cannot keep yhethe connection with local cellular service when in idle mode.
    Now i was thinking to change to the Indian firmware and see if it works. Should i follow the same procedure as above for changing my lollipop firmware to Indian? Please advise. Thanks

  • No, it’ll not. You should try this guide instead: http://www.droidviews.com/update-att-note-3-with-lollipop-ota-and-root-it/

    please help me

  • Yes.

  • Doron Reinis

    Did it and now starting all over again. It says : “NAND Write Start!! ” . from this point should it take around 10 m?

  • Doron Reinis

    OK, just tried the process and failed to do it. I followed all the steps as it was written. However, all looked like it is working at the beginning and the Odine reacted as it does the job. After an hour there was nothing !!! so, I gave up the process. I think it is better to wait for the official release even if it will take a while.

  • Doron Reinis

    OK – now its not turning of

  • Doron Reinis

    OK thanks

  • It usually takes 5-10 minutes.

  • Doron Reinis

    Any idea of how long it should take before i give up?

  • If you are still having the issue, disconnect the device, turn it off and start again.

  • Doron Reinis

    Hi, I started the process of updating and it takes already 1 h. Looks like the system is in freez mode. Any estimation of how long this might take?

  • Debb Y.

    I have an AT&T Note 3 SM-N900A that just got an OTA Lollipop 5.0 UPDATE last night. After doing lots of reading, and having always had my phone rooted prior I took the leap and have to say I am VERY pleased with how fluid this runs not to mention battery life on this official version, will see.

  • Emal Khan

    Thanks alot

  • Emal Khan

    Its rooted and custom recovery and where can i find custom lollipop rom?

  • If you got root and a custom recovery, you can install a custom Lollipop ROM.

  • Emal Khan

    Do u know any way i can get lollipop on my note 3 sprint?

  • Yes, KNOX will work on the new software.

    if i install this new software can i use KNOX? if no there is anyway to do it ?

  • snagnax

    thank you it worked on my n900

  • No, it will not.

  • Emal Khan

    will this work on sprint version? and will i need Google apps after i flash this?

  • I have been using it for about a month now. It’s runs perfect.

    Thanks for the quick response.
    My phone is unlocked.
    I live on Europe, Montenegro, so can you please suggest to me which firmware would suit me the most, and are there any drawbacks in updating the android like this and not waiting for the official realese?
    I read that some people are complaining that the phone is getting slower and a bit laggy?

  • Hi, if your phone is not locked to a carrier, you can install any unbranded firmware. If you wish, you can later download the firmware for your country when available and install that.

  • Miško Darmanović

    Hi, Rakesh.

    My Note 3:
    Baseband version is N900XXUENG1
    Build number KOT48H.N900XXUENH1.

    I dont know which number is PDA and which is CSC but on sammobile i found out that there is no lollipop 5.0 for these 2 codes, only 4.4.2:

    Date 2014-10-01
    Version Android 4.4.2
    PDA N900XXUENH1
    CSC N900OXEENI1

    Date 2014-07-01
    Version Android 4.4.2
    PDA N900XXUENG1
    CSC N900ODDENF1

    Does this means my phone still cant get lollipop?
    Also can you tell what does this means, its the last section in my about device information:
    United Arab Emirates
    TRA ID: 0010633/08
    TA: 0000000/00

    Thanks

  • sohaib

    Thank you.

  • I don’t have time for getting into such discussions. There’re so many comments to reply to.
    Anyway, that error occurs because of the difference of PIT structure/mapping on some variants of a device.

  • sohaib

    then why do people get ‘invalid ext4 image’ error in odin ?

  • Only LG releases firmwares based on storage variants. Samsung firmwares have that partition mapping info inbuilt. So, you need not worry about that. Download the firmware and install it.

  • sohaib

    okay just one last question, i checked sammobile to download my hong kong official lollipop firmware now my question is how do i know that this firmware is for 16gb or 32gb version ?

  • MuneebHanif

    will this work on sprint n900p

  • Look, I have flashed 3 Lollipop firmwares meant for different countries on my Note 3. Never got error. PIT is not meant to be flashed normally. It’s required only when you get PIT mapping or invalid ext 4 error.

  • sohaib

    Im so particular about PIT because Im scared ive heard many people commenting that they get ext.image error at the end of flashing just because of repartition.

  • It won’t work for you. Try the guide for the AT&T Note 3: http://www.droidviews.com/update-att-note-3-with-lollipop-ota-and-root-it/

  • Why are you so particular about the PIT. You should just flash the firmware without PIT. It would be installed without problem.

  • sohaib

    ive done some research on google and ive found that hong kong version PIT structure is a bit diffrnt from international version ?

  • Aimeryl Mat

    Does it work on an unlocked At&t Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900A??

  • sohaib

    ive done some research on google and ive found that hong kong version PIT structure is a bit diffrnt from international version.

  • sohaib

    ive done some research on google and ive found that hong kong version PIT structure is a bit diffrnt from international version

  • If you follow the instructions carefully, there’s no risk.

  • Since the Hong Kong version is available, install it.

  • sohaib

    my phone csc is tgy that shows its from hong kong so should i flash hong kong version lollipop as it is officially released or should i go with russian ?

  • sohaib

    you mean PIT made from kitkat version will work in lollipop too ? and PIT ko odin mein firmware ke sath flash karna hai ya phir firmware alag aur PIT alag ?

  • sohaib

    what is the risk in installing firmware manually ?

  • Yes, the PIT file will work for all 32gb sm-n900 devices.

  • If you are out of Hong Kong, you won’t get the OTA updates. Install the firmware manually to get Lollipop.

  • sohaib

    And second question is the PIT that you have send me will it work on n900 while flashing official stock lollipop rom ?

  • sohaib

    hey need to know onething, my n900 is purchased from hong kong and on sammobile i saw that lollipop is officially released for my n900 hong kong by samsung but whenever i try to update kies says software is upto date but my software version is still 4.4.2 not even 4.4.4, can you why is this ?

  • Here is the PIT for 32gb Note 3 SM-N900: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/84115590/ha3g.pit

  • 32GB.

  • sohaib

    And Secondly how can i make a backuo of my PIT ?

  • sohaib

    Rakesh, your note 3 is 16gb or 32gb ?

  • Tomer Bar-Shlomo

    It worked only with My-N9005.pit from

  • Yes, unzip the firmware.

    Do I unzip this file. Odin is not seeing the file.

    Hi.
    Thanks but i did that and still had the same problem.
    The actual fault was that one of my connected apps was not in the list. I had to add it and now all is fine. Thanks.

  • Try this:
    Go to Settings >Applications>Google play store and clear app data.

  • DAVE WILSON

    Hi.
    Thanks for the firmware. I installed it on my N900 without any problems. I am from south afrika and so far i had no major problems exept for a constant error with the google play service.
    all other systems seems to be working just fine. I will update again when i figure out what the story is with google play service.
    Thanks again.

  • Please share the new link when available.

  • Thanks for the mirror. Added in the post!

  • Well, I took all screenshots shared in the article after updating to Lollipop.

  • damdin

    Screenshot is not working at all, please check guys if yours is working

  • Rueben

    Ok so this was the most comprehensive and thorough instructions out there… mind you the link for the Firmware was a tedious hassle to get. 2 things to keep in mind for the novices like me – GET THE RIGHT FIRMWARE there is SM-N900 and others like SM-N9005. Also the device will take a while to reboot and run through the animation then the app optimization … I got worried and almost started to panic – be patient !

  • Ajitesh

    hi. will it remove root access

  • You can install it with or without root.

  • Michael

    do you have to root your note 3 before installing the lollipop firmware

  • No, but we recommend wiping the device after installing Lollipop. Do a backup first.

  • mohammed

    does this opreartion del all my data ???

  • Nozir Ahmod

    Thanks!

  • Nozir Ahmod

    Already did that before your comment. Boot loaded successfully but that time I had gone through another Odin Flash process with a Custom ROM (N900) PIT File Re-Partition as I didn’t have any backup of my PIT, unfortunately! This Stock Lollipop ROM is now working but battery drains too fast!! Do you face anything like this? I think, the problem is in that Custom ROM PIT File.
    Now, can you please give me your PIT Layout File? You can backup it through ADB Shell or Terminal Emulator.

  • Well, I have installed the firmware on my Note 3 and it’s running fine. Turn off the phone and press and hold the Volume up+Home+Power buttons together to boot the device into the recovery mode. Then wipe data factory reset. It’ll be fixed.

  • Nozir Ahmod

    I’ve Note-3 (N900) 32GB Version. I’ve flashed through the right process &everything works fine in Odin &got a “PASS” sign without single Error. But after rebooting, it’s in a Bootloop! Do I need a 32GB PIT file to re-partition EMMC?
    By the way, I’ve flashed this Stock ROM over CyanogenMod 12 Unofficial Build.

    1. Close your S-View Cover ( The Way you want to see the time )
    2. Power off Your Note 3 While Cover is Closed
    3. Power On The Note 3 With Cover Closed
    Remember Do Not Restart the Device
    Do Power Off Then Power On With Cover Closed
    Thanks

  • Resetting the device does not affect software version. If it has KK, it will remain the same.

    Oh alright. Now I want to attempted to backup and reset because it can changed my phone bug, and if I reset my device, is this ROM back to KitKat, or not? By the way you have fast reply. Nice service.

  • You can install the stock firmware normally. No need to reset the device.

  • Wilson Kosasih

    Alright, if I have installed this firmware, and then I want to install other firmware, can I install it while using this ROM or, I must do factory reset and then download other ROM?

  • You’ll have to flash the firmware manually.

  • Wilson Kosasih

    Oh okay, by the way, if I installed this firmware, would the update appears on software update, or I must flash other firmware?

    Sorry bad English :/

  • Yes, with new firmwares, that is normal. You can try a data factory reset from system recovery to fix the issue.

  • Wilson Kosasih

    I installed it, and yeah, it was normal, BUT the phone battery keeps draining fast and everytime i used it, always warm, is that okay, admin? please respond. thanks

    S-View Cover was working after the Firmware was installed. The Device was lagging so i set it to factory Reset then it worked smoothly without lags but S-View Cover was not working though it worked before Factory Reset

  • Boot the phone into stock recovery and wipe data factory reset. It’ll be fixed.

    Anyone experiencing random restarts? Will be using the phone or have it docked on the desk and it will simply restart. Annoying as ever.

  • I could, yeah. I’m not sure if there is a root for 5.0 just yet is there?

  • Like? And you can try AOSP based ROMs too.

  • yeah, except that HTC really screwed up Lollipop. They took all of the good stuff out of it. 🙁

  • Cool 🙂 The best decision.

  • It’s okay now. I sold the note 3 and got the m8 unlocked. Updated to lollipop ota

  • Its not a pit file issue, pit is partition design for your smartphone. The issue is your radio (modem/baseband). Just get the right one.
    Or, click on the SOURCE link at the end of the article and you can ask the users over at XDA.

  • I have the unlocked t-mobile usa version. SM-N900T running on 4.4.2

  • I tried to use the PIT file for my 32 gig and I get a PIT error on my phone and in ODIN. I tried using the PIT generated from my phone as well. It will only successfully complete if i use PA file by itself. Then everything works perfectly fine on the phone accept for WiFi. It won’t turn on. When i try to swip the bar right to turn on the WiFi, it doesn’t react and swipe right. and its greyed out.

  • I have flashed it on my 32 GB Note 3 ( see screenshots). No problem.

  • vbp

    but i read several places to use pit file for 32gb SM-N900 …. ???

  • Yes.

  • vbp

    should i adopt same process on 32gb SM-N900

  • I have NK3 baseband.

  • Those are all att modems. I have the sm-n900t – TMobile Unlocked version.

  • Its a T-Mobile device not att. But I couldn’t find the right file so went back to 4.4.2

  • Find and flash the AT&T modem.bin.

  • I flashed this but modem.bin failed. i let it completely boot up. fdr’d and everything worked except for WiFi. any idea? Literally every single thing on the phone worked except wifi wouldn’t turn on. It isn’t like it wouldn’t connect to wifi. It literally wouldn’t toggle ON. i know people are having issues with staying connected but i didn’t even make it that far. if i tried to press the wifi button it would just stay greyed out and never turned on. Im running the t-mobile unlocked sm-n900t on ATT network.

  • Might be a software fault from company side. Lets see if someone else reports too.
