We will be posting Galaxy Note 3 stock firmwares here.
What is a stock firmware?
Stock firmware is the “original” operating system/software your Note 3 shipped with. These can usually be flashed using ODIN and they are 100% stock firmwares. See How to Unroot Note 3 on how to install these stock firmwares on any Note 3.
If you ever mess up while installing custom ROM or you just simply want to return to stock firmware for warranty purposes, you can use Note 3 stock firmwares to get your phone back to 100% factory status.

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.
Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!
