How to Convert your Note 3 into Note 4! [Note 4 Port Evolution ROM]


Looking to turn your Note 3 into a Note 4?  Look nowhere further than Note 4 Port Evolution ROM by XDA user Kbythwood!

Based on Android 4.4.4 TouchWiz, Note 4 Port Evolution ROM brings you Note 4 system UI and features to your Note 3, it will work on the AT&T Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900A, T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900T, Canadian SM-N900W8, and (should work, although not tested) international SM-N9005.

Out of the box, the Note 4 Port Evolution ROM will bring you everything from Note 4, all except features that requires Note 4’s new hardware such as fingerprint/UV/heart sensor.  Otherwise, this ROM pretty much turns your Note 3 into a Note 4 minus the higher 1440P resolution (who needs it anyways, it drains way too much battery).

If you don’t care for Note 4’s new Gear VR capability then this ROM will turn your phone into Note 4 without having to break your damn wallet!   With this ROM, you will be able to easily inherit Note 4’s super capabilities like floating multi-windows (by dragging  your finger from corner, see video for demo), Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, and much much more.

Also, this ROM comes with a modded Note 4 launcher that is even faster than the real Note 4 stock launcher and performance/battery life is excellent.  For T-Mobile/international version, you will also be able to overclock easily to 2.726Ghz thanks to Lean kernel and get your performance up to par with a Note 4 (near 46,000 on Antutu).

  3. John D says:

    After doing the install of the rom and Kernel it tells me that the SU binaries need to be updated. Once that is done the phone will constantly be rebooting. It boots up and stays on for a few seconds then it reboots again. I have updated SU via the rom and via the recovery. Both give the same results. Any ideas on how I can change that?

    Hey i’m having issues with entering my APN settings, its not allowing me to manually enter it. Currently if i no longer have any data from my network. I’m in Jamaica and i’m using the Canadian Note 3, any suggestions?

  12. Shak008 says:

    Floyd: Use Apn Manager (build in app) & set your Apn & save it & select it. Then go to your phone setting mobile network & select the new Apn. If you direct go to your phone setting mobile network then you can’t add new Apn. You have to through by Apn Manager. I hope this work for you.Thnx.

  13. Shak008 says:

    John: Follow my previous post for data connection setting. Hope this works for you. Thnx.

  26. lobo says:

    I’m using AT&T NOTE 3 and I flashed without any problems except I can not record nor use my data from my plan.
    Anyone have suggestions?

  27. adam says:

    Using an ATT note 3. rom installed fine. Odin files installed fine. Internet is working, however, I simply cannot sign into google no matter what I try, whether it be on the mobile network or my wifi.

    • Bobby Phoenix says:

      Do you have two step verification on? If so you have to go into your account on the PC, and generate a code to use instead of your password.

      • adam says:

        I don’t. I switched back to a stock rom and had no problems logging in, switched back and still have the same issue. Also, I did not have problems logging in on my backup S4. But I simply cant get it to work with this rom on my note 3

        • John says:

          You were able to switch back to a stock rom? For me, this rom is too buggy (keeps randomly rebooting every few hours). But I cannot seem to be able to revert back to any other rom. (stock firmware with Odin gives me errors) I also have a backup from Safestprap, but now I cannot boot into Safestrap at all. Does Safestrap work for you? How did you switch back to another rom?

  28. louie says:

    fuck this rom…..!

  29. alan says:

    Hey i’m having issues with video recording, * RECORDING FAILED* any ideas?

  30. Shak008 says:

    T mobile Note 3 (Sm-N900T): Can’t play 1080p video on YouTube. Display resolution is not perfect. Data speed still slow. Any 1 figure out that. Video recording has no problem. But the rom is very fast and flawless except these issues. Hope in future update. Going back to stock with root or something eals. Thnx.

  31. Haider says:

    Extremely great rom but has the same issues like s5 experience Rnm and that’s battery drains within no time while typing the mag I lost 7% battery power, great rom with poor software optimization for battery consumption.

  32. Haider says:

    It seems like that I am not using note 3 but some cheap Chinese copy due to battery power consumption and that’s the only thing I hate other than that it’s perfect now I am gng back to my stock version because can’t bare this any more and am sad that I can’t make use of such an excellent piece of work.

  33. haider says:

    Important please see the video how to download the Rom
    At the start the battery is at 84% for AT&T note3 and after 6 mins it’s left with 72% during the tutorial . and person claims it gives great back up please help.

  34. Marcian says:

    Love the ROM. However, I can’t get safe strap to work now. I have the latest version …. it says it installed but not active. Any help would be appreciated. (I’m on the AT&T version)

    • Jobby says:

      Same here. I have the AT&T note. I first used the 3.72 version (which is what I used on my stock ROM, which worked fine on that) and when that didn’t work, I tried the 3.75 version… Still nothing. Help would be appreciated.

  35. Cobalto says:

    La ROM no incluye idioma Español, por lo que, si no hablas inglés, no podras utilzar Google Now! y todas las aplicaciones se instalarán en inglés.

    • pitt500 says:

      Que tal Cobalto,

      La rom no viene en espanol, pero si se puede configurar google now en varios idiomas, de hecho yo lo tengo en espanol e ingles y ambos me los detecta sin problemas. Solo ve a los ajustes de voz y elije los idiomas que quieras.


  36. harry says:

    MMS for Rogers is not working anyone else?

  37. pitt500 says:

    Hi everybody,

    I just installed this rom on my Note 3 AT&T and everything works fine, except:
    1. Screen Mirroring crashes.
    2. Recording video also crashes.
    3. I’m not sure, but I think my battery drops faster than my stock rom version.

    Points 2 & 3 are not big deals for me, I can use google camera to record, and the issue with the battery is not a big deal. However, screen mirroring is a function that I use a lot. Do you know any solution for that?

    Thanks a lot 🙂

  38. ivan says:

    i want the link for odin3 to install the rom on my att note3 any one help plz

  39. Georgegalbin says:

    Super-happy with this ROM on my Canadian Note3. I had to tweak the APN to get it working on Telus phone carrier. Also I had to uninstall few included apps that were for T-mobile. I guess that this ROM was extracted from a Note4 T-mobile phone. The software works better than the other modified ROMs I have tested.
    Thanks for your work
