Install Android 5.0 Lollipop on Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 (Snapdragon)


Today here we are with some good news for the Galaxy Note 3 users in Europe who are eagerly waiting for some Lollipop love. Samsung has been constantly on the news with lots of Lollipop updates and leaks which are driving the Android users crazy. Unlike the other OEMs, Samsung is very successful at releasing the Lollipop updates for its flagship as well as the mid-range devices alike and we love Samsung for that. We’ve already seen a Lollipop firmware leak for the Galaxy Note 3 users just a couple of weeks back and now we’re talking official release.

The European Galaxy Note 3 LTE SM-N9005 users are up for some luck today as it’s raining Lollipop all over Europe. The update was spotted in Poland for the unlocked Note 3, and for the Vodafone subscribers in United Kingdom, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania and few other carrier locked devices in some of the European regions. The firmware comes with the build number N9005XXUGBOA5 and updates your Note 3 to the Android 5.0 Lollipop. If the frequency of the updates from Samsung holds constant, you might see another update very soon (Hoping!!!).

If you’re lucky enough, you might have already seen the OTA notification in your notification bar. To manually check for the notification, navigate to Settings → About phone → Software update and check for the latest update. Don’t lose you heart if you don’t see the update notification even after checking for it manually. Follow the quick guide given below and upgrade your Galaxy Note 3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop manually using the Odin firmware flashing tool.


Prepare Your Device

  • Charge your device to at least 60% battery life to avoid any mishaps during the process.
  • Install appropriate drivers for your Samsung smartphone. You can find them here.
  • Enable USB Debugging on your Galaxy Note 3.
  • Backup everything, this includes your device’s storage, SMS, contacts, and apps etc. The process will erase everything off your device.

    Show me Odin screenshot.

  • Mohit Uppal

    I don’t have the error log, but it failed due to which phone was not working so I re-installed 4.4.2. Can you help me in installing 5.0, N9005xxuGNG1. CAN I CHANGE FROM GNG1 to some another, or I have to wait till GNG1 has 5.0 version released.

  • Can you show me the Odin error log?

  • Mohit Uppal

    I’m using SM-N9005 with 4.4.2. PDA is N9005XXUGNG1, but till date no update on 5.0. How can I install 5.0 ??
    Can I install any other firmware? Previously I tried installing UK firmware
    but was not able to install every-time it failed. Any help plz.

  • Prabh

    Can you teach me how to update it manually and safely ?

  • Yes.

  • Hamid Ali

    So is it totally safe to install this framework on modified rooted 4.4.2 version with falged Knox?

  • You can find the link to download the firmware and instructions about installing it above.

  • Hamid Ali

    Can you please be more specific about how to apply the update? I mean do i need to format my phone first or juat install the framework with Odin. Because i am not very expert in this field. In some articles i read that if your Knox counter was flaged then it can cause errors in updating the framework. Or if your phone is modified then the official framework will show errors while updating it. Secondly do i need to root my mobile again after update to active LTE service?

  • Yes.

  • You can install the Lollipop frmware manually.

  • You can install the Lollipop firmware from above.

  • It’s official.

  • Finley Post

    Is this a root or is this a legal update from samsung ?

  • Yes.

  • Hamid Ali

    I am using N-9005 model with 4.4.2. I am from Pakistan and this device was not officially introduced for selling in my country. Anyway it was available in market so i buy it. But i was unable to use LTE service on this device because it was not showing the option to select LTE network in connection settings. So the only way to make it work was rooting. I root my device and change a single value 0 to 1 in a specific file to make it show options for LTE and it works. But it also flag the knox from 0x0 to 0x1. Now i am unable to get 5.0 update. So i was looking for a way to get that update. Is there a way to get it guys?

  • Yes, you can.

  • Serei Ratanak

    Im using the same kernel but different dpi.. mine is dpi@SWDD 6217 #1.. can i proceed installing?

  • maxprkr

    I wasted half day today removing 5.0 and downgrading to 4.4.2 on my n9005. After suffering for a month on 5.0: battery time reduced by x2-3; programs hang and stacked; terrible white background of the interface – less visibility and more battery drain then former black; such functions as voice call or fast dial now inserted several yes/no questions on the screen!!! instead of just calling in one press or one voice command, as they do in 4.4.2. And many issues with stability etc. You can google it and read others… JUST STAY AWAY from it. I thought “newer, later – better” WRONG.

  • But why?

  • maxprkr

    Stay away from this crap 5.0

  • The Lollipop firmware for Cambodia is not available. If your device is not SIM-locked, you can try any unbranded firmware.

I want to upgrade it to lollipop, but i don’t want the region lock to come again, so can u suggest me which country’s firmware version should i use not to get the region lock. I’m thinking to go with the poland version, can u tell me if the region lock is going to come again or not please?

  • The Sammobile regular link works fine.

  • boks

    I have no luck on both links unless you buy premium to avail the download. would there be any aside from the last link. Thanks

  • boks

    noted. do you other link to download aside from sammobile?

  • You will lose root but can root it again.

  • boks

    btw, the device is rooted, what happen then after using firmware since my device is rooted. Thanks

  • Keith

    Mark, it’s on a website: I paid $32 USD or around 1300p. Thanks.

  • Mark Evans Agsalud

    Hi keith. Thank you for the reply. can you give me where you got an official unlock code and for how much? My unit is galaxy note 3. Thanks

  • Nebunu

    Not managing very goods custom Roms. I mean i was nervous enough when I installed lollipop. I am thinking do..

  • Keith

    You cannot Sim/Network Unlock with the Region Unlock App. The region unlock is for regions (Asia, Americas, Europe, etc). My unit was Network Locked to Smart as well, I purchased an official unlock code, after unlocking, I flashed lollipop and it’s been a breeze since..

  • Since you got a carrier-branded device, I would not recommend installing any other firmware on it. Wait until the firmware for Philippines (Smart) is out.

  • Mark Evans Agsalud

    Hi, im from the Philippines and my note 3 is locked with Smart Ph network. I tried unlocking with the Region Unlock app but it did not work.What update should i install? Thanks!

  • Your best option are custom ROMs.

  • 1. Insert a SIM card that’s not supported by your Note 3,

    2. You’ll get “SIM lock” windows which you dismiss,

    3. Download install (enable uknown sources first) this app from Chainfire from XDA

    4. Once app is installed simply run it and press “Region Unlock”
    5. Press “Reboot now” and you’ll be good to go (should be).

  • Keith

    Yes for now… thanks for the help..

  • So, everything is fine now!

  • Keith

    Update: So after installation and restoring.. I shut off the unit and let it charge. When I rebooted it, play store wouldn’t open, I lost all my google apps, and other apps that I restored with Kies 3 and Helium.. I did a factory reset, restored, and it did the same.. so I went ahead and downloaded Poland BOB6.. so far it’s been good.. no issues whatsoever.. WiFi, bluetooth, NFC, etc. all working well.. Thanks…

  • Glad to know it worked!

  • Keith

    As you stated, i inserted .md5 ext and continued to use v.3.10.. it worked, and is in the process of booting up.. i think issue is i was using a visitor account on my laptop which didnt have admin rights.. so i logged in my account and the file was recognized.. any further updates/requests for assistance will be posted in response to your comment above.. Thank you Rakesh.

  • Try adding add .md5 after .tar so that the file has .tar.md5 extension. Also try with Odin 3.09.

  • Keith

    I’m using V.3.10 and also the firmware is the one you recommended

  • Sound weird! Anyway, add .md5 after .tar and try again. What Odin version are you using?

  • Keith

    the file extension ends in .tar and its not recognized by Odin

  • Guest

    the file extension ends in .tar tho

  • Keith

    it does not show any files.. not even the folder where i extracted the file to is recognized

  • What happens when you try to navigate to the firmware file. Does the file have .tar.md5 extension?

  • Keith

    Need Help. i have odin open but it wont recognize the .tar file. What to do now?

  • Yamato Senpai

    Hi can someone tell me How to unlock any Sim card for this Model N9005 i am trying for log enough but no response on octoplus box

  • Nebunu

    Download a fimware with this buid version: N9005XXUGBOB6

  • Raaghu

    ok thx, let me tell you the firmware i used

    thanks alot, but it is not lollipop version it has gone to olderversion 4.4.2
    can i update to lallipop now or how

  • Raaghu

    it is asking for “Confirm wire of all user data” what do i say here Yes/No

  • Reboot the phone to stock recovery and wipe data factory reset.
    1. turn off the phone by pulling out the battery and then insert it back after 30 seconds.
    2. press volume up+home+power keys together.
    3. Just as you see Samsung logo, release the power key but keep the volume and home keys until the phone gets into recovery mode.
    4. Using the volume keys, highlight the wipe data factory reset option and confirm wipe by pressing the power key.
    5. Reboot the phone and it will be fixed.

  • Raaghu

    Rakesh , everything is fine, but while re-starting it got stuck wih samsung logo, i wait for long time no use. anything still need to be done

  • Follow all steps from the guide.Just also the PIT and enable Re-partition option on Odin.

  • Raaghu

    fine, only pit file or do i need to add the firmware also in PDA section

  • Download this:

    and select the file in PIT section in Odin. Also check the Re-Partition option on Odin this time.

  • Raaghu

  • Nebunu

    Hi mate. My phone keeps restarting for a few days. Know anything about bugs in this version?

  • Nebunu

    Ai reusit sa instalezi acadeaua?

  • Well, if you follow the guide carefully, there is hardly a chance that your phone is bricked and if it does somehow, you will be able to restore it.

  • Radu

    Ok..but if somehow i will brick it ..can i bring it back to warranty? Thanks

  • Neither of them. Just install it.

  • Radu

    Do i need root for the update? Or will i lose my warrantly?

  • Nebunu

    even better after factory reset. thanks. I suppose I will be able to receive the next updates as normal true air…

  • Nebunu

    so no error, just a choice of google. thanks.

  • Nebunu

    also s planner widget wont appear on my go launcher only on touchwiz. strange.

  • Nebunu

    Hi. just noticed now that i have option only for full sound or vibrate, no sound is not there as an option. will do a factory reset this days. i don’t really want to start all over again.

  • Do a factory reset for better performance.

  • Nebunu

    Just installed it. You are a star bro. Very clear instructions and easy to do. Thanks. will keep an eye on all to see how the battery will behave and also the rest. cheers.

  • No, you can install the firmware.

  • Nebunu

    Hi there. Just a quick question, my phone is not rooted. Dos it make any difference?

  • Nebunu

    cheers mate, will let you know how it went

  • Here is the firmware for Bulgaria (MTL), but it’ll work fne for you:

  • Nebunu

    no, its not.

  • Is your phone carrier branded?

  • Nebunu

    so basically just wait for the official version to come..

  • You can’t install any of unbranded firmware if you don’t have problem with English.

    i have a hong kong note 3 n9005 i tried to flash it from poland rom but it failed twice is there any way that i can change my honkong build rom to poland 5.0 rom .plz answer fast

  • Well, I am not sure if it will help or not but give a try to AOdin 3.10 too.

  • surjhat s

    its a official poland lollipop firmware.don’t try will show you error..wait for the hongkong firmware..

  • surjhat s

    i tried with odin 3.07 and 3.09

  • carl chua

    what’s the update sir?.. did you successfully flash it? im a note 3 16gb hongkong version also

  • If your phone is not carrier branded, better use the Poland firmware. Romania (Vodafone) will also work for you though.

  • Sergiu

    Hello I am from Romania.

    Owning a SM-N9005 Galaxy Note 3 LTE is not encoded.

    Can I install on it version 5.0 Romania (Vodafone) ?

  • G74XS

    It does not matter if i install a different region version on my note3 cause i can only see some of vodafone but mine is from new zealand, is that details is really important??

  • That might be one reason but you should try again. What Odin version did you use?

  • surjhat s

    i tried with poland firmware.all went well but at the end system.img.ext4 failed.maybe because of my note 3 sm n9005 is 16gb(hongkong version).what do you think?
