    Unhappy Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Uninstall Kitkat Update

    It appears, upon doing some research, that my lovely phone went from being useful to useless about a month ago due to the automatic update to KitKat (Android version 4.4.2). I went from have great signal reception and 0 dropped calls to very sketchy signal reception and TONS of dropped calls. So, I'm ready to ditch the Kit!

    So how can I uninstall this update and revert back to the previous version? I understand there may have been some glitches in it, but at least under that system I could still get phone calls, make calls, get timely notice of voice mails and text messages, and basically enjoy the benefits of having a high tech phone. I have none of that now!!!!

    Can someone please help me? I'm feeling lost and confused and just want my phone to work right again.

    Default Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Uninstall Kitkat Update

    You can try using a PC program called Odin and try to reflash the stock firmware.

    A few things to be aware of:
    1. You may get prompted to update to KitKat.
    2. Samsung may have added conflicting firmwares to prevent from rolling back which may brick the device.

    Have you tried a factory reset? Often after a major update like this the framework needs to be rebuilt.
