For those of you who want to return your rooted Galaxy Note 3 back to stock factory status, you can by unrooting your Note 3 with ODIN and stock official firmware.
This will allow you to fully unroot your Galaxy Note 3 and make it just like the day you got the phone. Also for international models like SM-N900 or SM-N9005, you can use this method to change the country firmware. E.g. You bought your phone in India and you want to use it in France but your phone doesn’t support French, you can install French firmware on your Indian Note 3.
And for those of you who want to just run stock, I don’t recommend this method (only for warranty/returns) but instead find a rooted stock ROM in ZIP format you can flash using CWM or TWRP recovery, that way you can keep your CWM/TWRP recovery and run stock ROM.
This unroot method may ERASE EVERYTHING ON YOUR PHONE, so please MAKE A BACKUP before proceeding!!!
Step 1. Turn your Note 3 power off. Then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds until you see a warning screen.
What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
How to Install Custom ROMs
First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.
