If you want to keep your root and have cool features like unlocked hotspot/call recording, you may want to install the latest Jasmine Lollipop ROM. For those of you coming from KitKat ROM with root, this is the best route so you don’t lose root permanently along with your unlocked WiFi hotspot.
Many of you are still waiting for stock Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware on your Galaxy Note 3 but the international versions of Note 3 already have received them including the SM-N900 and SM-N9005.
UPDATE: Lollipop is now available for SM-N900, SM-N9005, and T-Mobile SM-N900T.
For SM-N9005, there’s already a slew of great custom Lollipop ROMs to choose from, I recommend the Alliance ROM. For SM-N900 users, you may want to hold off another week or two as ROM developers are still getting their stuff together, not too many ROMs can be installed straight from CWM or TWRP Recovery, most requiring you to ODIN the Lollipop firmware.
For this week’s ROM of the Week, check out AICP ROM, available for SM-N9005, T-Mobile SM-N900T, Sprint SM-N900P, and Canadian SM-N900W8. (Sorry, DOES NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP!)
Based on latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, AICP brings you the latest and best of pure Google to your Galaxy Note 3. This is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) so you will lose all of your Samsung TouchWiz features.
