    I was running your os, good job. i do like it.
    But, i used an application that came with your os to update the Google apps, and its been mostly a brick.

    i get a system error , and it reboots.
    seems that it wants to activate the phone and can not…
    done every thing i can think of to get the os booting again, wipe everything and started from nothing.. no luck, any ideas?
    Thanks in advance, for this really cool rom!!

    Dear Max,
    Got the Note 3 package deal from ShopHQ. This is a T-mobile 900T and Galaxy Gear Watch. I have a LOT of auto reboots. Seen the articles, ( battery, SIM card, etc…) but I want to wait until Samsung fixes this before rooting unless you think I have a better chance of fixing my problem by rooting my phone. I await your recommendation.
    Regards,
    Rocky

    Dear Max,
    This first time I am writing here though I have been learning so much from site & videos.
    I am so eagerly waiting for solution to unlock the boot loaded on AT&T Note 3. I wonder why the great expert at XDA taking so long in creating the boy loader. I am sure some geniuses out there must have already found code breaking. I request for making it available ASAP. Waiting!

    with the new KitKat update for T-Mobile, is there any new method of rooting with that os? i tried it with the previous way and it just put my note in a bootloop having to just reflash the firmware. any help would be much appreciated

    • Dee Ellis says:

      Alright I’ll just reply to myself. If you have a N900T with KitKat 4.4.2 and you want to root it. use the N9005 root method
