The broken restore ROM feature on CWM Recovery now has been fixed for most of the Note 3 models, you can check for the update versions on our Galaxy Note 3 ClockworkMod/TWRP Recoveries page. Look for “*New – Restore fully supported” and you will see those models have been updated.
For those of you who want to root your Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), here’s a root method that will root your phone while keeping KNOX counter at 0x0.
Before we begin, please pull out any microSD cards and also make a backup of everything including your photos, videos, and anything in your internal storage you want to save as this root method will ERASE EVERYTHING ON YOUR VERIZON NOTE 3!!!
For those of you with AT&T Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900A, now there’s finally a root method available.
This root method will erase everything on your phone so MAKE A BACKUP before proceeding!!!
UPDATE: AT&T has updated software and this root method will not work unless you have N900AUCUBMI9 build number!!! (Settings->About Device->Build Number)
For those of you who want to make your Note 3 speaker volume louder, there’s a MOD for that.
XDA user jovy23 has made a Loud Volume Boost MOD that will increase the volume of your internal speakers on any rooted Note 3 with Qualcomm chip. (If you have SM-N9005 or any U.S./Canadian Note 3 like T-Mobile SM-N900T, Sprint SM-N900P, you have a Qualcomm version.)
For those of you with a rooted Galaxy Note 3, did you know that you can use an app called Wanam Xposed to customize your UI and system?
You will be able to add some cool features like call recording, 4-way reboot, screen-off flashlight shortcut, enable camera during call, enable all apps for multi-window, change clock/battery/icon colors, enable NFC during screen off, and a ton more.
The Galaxy Note 3 comes with floating windows in additional to its multi-window feature, allowing you to have floating windows of any apps you desire just like a desktop computer.
Well, the Note 3 only supports handful of apps like YouTube, Calculator, Phone, and Clock but there’s an easy way to enable this Pen Window feature for ALL of your favorite apps.
For those of you who like TWRP Recovery over CWM recovery, it is now available for Sprint SM-N900P, T-Mobile SM-N900T, and Canadian Note 3 models, grab em here.
TWRP Recovery is nearly identical to CWM Recovery in features except it does have support also for USB mount and USB-OTG. This can be great for using USB-OTG to backup your ROMs to a flash drive.
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.
Thanks to XDA developer, Shabbypenguin, CWM Recovery is now available for Sprint Note 3 SM-N900P users. Be aware, restore function is not currently supported by the Note 3 so DO NOT RESTORE ROMs until developers have figured out a way around it (this is on ALL Note 3s) as Note 3 has a new security feature that’s causing the issue.
