    I didn't get the lollipop version of my galaxy NOTE 3 SM-9005

  • I absolutely love it! The screen seems brighter, and the way my emails look is fantastic. What a difference. I followed the instructions under settings in the article because another friend on tmobike said she got her notice, but I didn't get mine. Probably because I had never updated my phone. I can't say enough about it. Every single new feature, I love. Thanks Samsung....and I'm a real person. I don't usually comment on anything. This upgrade is just so good.

  • I am not getting lolipop update for galaxy note 3 at&t(n900A).any solution.

    • In order to flash the Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA package on your device, you must have the base firmware with build number N900AUCUDNL1 (Android 4.4.4) on it. You can find out the firmware version of your Note 3 by going to Settings> About. In case your device has NC2, NJ5 or any other firmware, please install the NL1 firmware first.

      Download the firmware: N900AUCUDNL1 AT&T Note 3
      Install the firmware using our detailed tutorial.

      In case your device already has NL1 firmware, make sure it’s 100% stock. It simply means that your phone must not have root access to flash the OTA successfully.

      Having taken care of the prerequisites mentioned above, just follow the steps given below:

      1. Download the Android Lollipop OTA package for AT&T Note 3: N900A_OC1_Stock(100%).zip

      2. Copy the OTA zip package on the external SD card of your Note 3.

      3. Enable USB Debugging on your device. This step has nothing to do with OTA flashing but it can be helpful in case anything goes wrong.

      4. Now turn off the phone and boot it into the stock recovery: hold the Volume Up + Home + Power keys simultaneously for a few seconds. As soon as you see the Samsung logo, release the Power button but keep Volume up and Home buttons pressed until you get into the Recovery Mode.

      5. Using the Volume keys, scroll to apply update from external storage option and press the Power button to select it.

      6. Navigate to N900A_OC1_Stock(100%).zip and select it.

      7. Confirm the installation and wait till the OTA is flashed.

      8. Finally, go back to the main menu in recovery and select reboot system now option.

      Your AT&T Note 3 will reboot. Just wait for a few minutes till it boots up for use. You are now ready to enjoy the all new Android Lollipop on your device.
