Don’t know what custom ROMs can do for you? See What is a Galaxy Note 3 Custom ROM first.

To install a new custom ROM, you will need a rooted Galaxy Note 3 with CWM or TWRP recovery installed.

For this tutorial I will be using TWRP Recovery to install a new custom ROM.  To install using CWM Recovery, please see How to Install Custom ROM using CWM on Rooted Galaxy Note 3 instead.

Before we start, I highly recommend you make a backup ROM FIRST, see How to Backup/Restore ROM using TWRP on rooted Galaxy Note 3!

Step 1. Turn your Note 3 off.  Then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds until you see “RECOVEYR BOOTING” at top-left of your screen.


Step 2. Once in TWRP recovery, choose “Wipe” to wipe data/factory reset.  This will erase all of your settings, apps, and app data.  This will not erase your personal files such as videos, photos, and other files stored in your internal storage or micro-SD card.

*Note – You may be able to skip this step if you are installing a custom ROM that’s based on the same firmware as one you are currently using but for most custom ROMs, I suggest you to do this step.

    Hi Max,

    As I am writing this, I am still waiting for TWRP to complete the flashing of a new ROM CM12.1 Unofficial Temasek-hlte 5.1.1 Lollipop which I have started over 30 mins ago already. I can see the “status bar” below still moving, as if to indicate that the flashing is still on going.

    I am just getting worried since in your youtube video, it really did not take this long to complete the flashing process.

    What can I do now? None of the softkey buttons work on my Note 3. I think I can press the Home Key but I do not want to interfere until I am sure on what is best to do.

    The last line in the DOS-like page says “Updating partition details…”

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.
