    doesnt work

    • RohanKandwal

      simply saying doesn’t work won’t help anyone. What problem you faced?

      • Intellectual Being

        the link to one click bin isn’t working.

        • RohanKandwal

          if by link you mean the download link then it works at my end. If you are not able to access the download website then, try clearing caches. If there is anything else, please mention in comments.

    Also if you first upgraded to 4.4.2 for example do not try to ODIN 4.3 at all… because well… that doesn’t work. Once on 4.4.2 you will have to flash 4.4.2 no matter what.

    Also when upgrading / rooting TURN KIES OFF!… in case you leave it on..Once in download mode my phone says the following:

    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SW-N900T
    CURRENT BINARY: CUSTOM
    SYSTEM STATUS: OFFICIAL
    KNOX KERNEL LOCK: 0X0
    KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0X0
    QUALCOM SECUREBOOT: ENAMBLE
    RP SWREV: S2, T2, A2, A3 P2
    WRITE PROTECTION: ENABLE
    UOC START

    When I purchased the note 3 I believe I did a manual upgrade of the os via settings. I think it was 4.4.2. and the upgrade made it into 4.3 Not entirely sure, but I know I got the latest update that tmobile had for this phone a few days ago. When you say turn off kies, you mean shut it down as to closing the application on the computer? If in fact i have 4.3 what then? I tried following the instructions above and I still get nowhere. This is the message I get:

    DOES THIS PROCESS WORK

    • RohanKandwal

      This process works but you need to flash the firmware that you are currently on. How can you upgrade and get from 4.4.2 to 4.3 (lower version)?

      • Rahul Jayaprasad

        I use saftetrap and unknowingly i wipe all the data
        Devic cache etc n all it wipe my os also
        I was using 4.4.2
        Can u suggest to get 900a 4.4.2 frimware for my at&t note 3

    • RohanKandwal

      Even after closing Kies, it runs in the background so you will have to open the task manager and then close the Kies process manually. How you bricked your device?
