How to Install Official Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900S (Snapdragon 800 LTE-A) Stock Rom
If you want to restore your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900S to its original firmware, you can follow this guide to flash the official stock rom on your device. This can help you fix software issues, unroot your phone, or revert back to the factory settings.
Before you proceed, make sure you have backed up your important data, as this process will wipe everything on your phone. You also need to have a Windows PC, a USB cable, and the latest Samsung USB drivers installed on your computer.
Here are the steps to install the official stock rom on your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900S:
Download the official stock rom for your device from here. The file name should be something like N900SKSUENAB_N900SSKTENAB_SKC.zip. Extract the zip file and you will get a file with .tar.md5 extension.
Download and install Odin, a tool that allows you to flash firmware on Samsung devices. Run Odin as administrator on your PC.
Turn off your phone and boot it into download mode by pressing and holding Volume Down + Home + Power buttons together. When you see a warning screen, press Volume Up to continue.
Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable. Odin should recognize your device and show a blue or green box under ID:COM. If not, make sure you have installed the correct drivers and try a different USB port or cable.
Click on the AP button in Odin and browse to the .tar.md5 file that you extracted in step 1. Make sure only Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are checked in the options tab. Do not check any other boxes or change any other settings.
Click on Start and wait for Odin to flash the stock rom on your device. This may take several minutes, so do not disconnect your phone or interrupt the process. You will see a PASS message in Odin when it is done.
Your phone will reboot automatically and you will see the Samsung logo. The first boot may take longer than usual, so be patient. Once it is done, you can disconnect your phone from your PC and set it up as a new device.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the official stock rom on your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900S (Snapdragon 800 LTE-A). You can now enjoy the original features and performance of your device.
If you encounter any problems while installing the stock rom on your device, you can try the following troubleshooting tips:
Make sure you have downloaded the correct stock rom for your device model and region. You can check your device model number by going to Settings > About device on your phone.
Make sure you have enough battery charge on your phone before starting the process. It is recommended to have at least 50% battery level.
Make sure you have disabled any antivirus or firewall software on your PC that may interfere with Odin.
Make sure you have not modified or rooted your phone in any way. If you have, you may need to flash a custom recovery or kernel before flashing the stock rom.
If Odin gets stuck or fails, you can try to close it and restart it. You can also try a different version of Odin or a different PC.
If your phone gets stuck in a boot loop or does not boot up at all, you can try to perform a factory reset by booting into recovery mode. To do this, turn off your phone and press and hold Volume Up + Home + Power buttons together. When you see the Android logo, release the buttons and use the volume keys to navigate and the power button to select. Choose wipe data/factory reset and confirm. This will erase all your data, so make sure you have backed up everything before doing this.
If none of these tips work, you may need to contact Samsung customer service or visit a service center for further assistance.
