How to Install SM-N9005 ROM on T-Mobile or Canadian Note 3 SM-N900T/SM-N900W8!


If you are a T-Mobile or Canadian Note 3 user with either SM-N900T or SM-N900W8, we have some great news for you.  You can now install any SM-N9005 custom ROM on your T-Mobile or Canadian Note 3 with everything working out of the box.

This is for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean ROMs ONLY, for Android 4.4.2 KitKat, go here instead.

Previously, you could install SM-N9005 custom ROM on T-Mobile or Canadian Note 3 but the problem was that Wifi, Bluetooth, and NFC aren’t working.  But we can easily solve this issue by flashing a custom kernel and also a fix in CWM or TWRP recovery after installing the ROM.

After installing your desired SM-N9005 custom ROM of your choice, simply install the two additional files here:
*Note – This is ONLY for TouchWiz-based custom ROMs!!!

    Great fix! flashed omega v6 with no problem on my T900. To bad AT&T roms just don’t compete with T Mobiles!!! Well at least their 4.3 roms don’t. But none the less, really cool to have that option! Thanks!

    • jimmy slate says:

      I’m pretty SURE it does not work with kit Kat Roms ( TW ) . Definitely wouldn’t risk bricking!! I’d go to XDA and read through some forums and ask questions if I were you.. Doesn’t seem like you’ll get any help from a Dev on here!
