This variant of the Note 3 — the SM-N9005 — launched in September of 2013 after being announced at the IFA earlier this year. It did manage to come with 4.3 out of the box, however, that is not this version. This one here is the XXUBMj1, and it has just come out overnight. It is still essentially the same firmware but with some added goodies and improvements.

There are two different models of this N9005, the Snapdragon because of the processor and the Exynos. No matter which one you have this guide will work for both because the official firmware was issued to both sets.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

If you are living in the United Kingdom, France or Russia, as well as other parts of Europe, this could come into your settings soon enough. If you are somewhere else in the world, then updating it manually.



What we have here is an official firmware so it will not void any warranty you may have remained on the device. However, the downside to that is if you have root access and wanted to keep it will be revoked now and requires another tutorial to get it back again. Instead of following the same guide as before research one consisting of the newer firmware instead.

Many blogs will makeup a battery percentage amount you have on the device for no reason other than trying to create extra content. There is no reason to do this at all. When the galaxy Note 3 is plugged into the computer with a USB cable it will automatically start charging the battery. Because the Note is always plugged in during the guide, it will always have power.

Backup all of your important contacts and data to the internal storage otherwise known as the SD card. Doing so will ensure you do not lose any key information should something go wrong during the process.

With the last point in mind, it is important to know that we are not responsible for any damages that occur during the installation of this firmware by following one of our guides. We do out utmost best to provide complete and accurate tutorials for people to follow freely, but we do not guarantee success.
