    Default How to get back to 4.3 on my note 3

    Hi everyone,
    I have a note 3 Sm-n900 and I updated to kitkat 4.4.2, but I would like to get back to 4.3 mainly because this update is very laggy and I do not like all the white icons on top, plus my phone freezes all of a sudden. This never happened when I was on 4.3 so where can I download 4.3 stock firmware? Do I flash through Odin? And how do I find out what region my phone was when I bought it? I bought it brand new for $600 it is sm-n900 exynos I put it on T-mobile network carrier. Thanks in advance

    I dont think u can go back to 4.3 because of the bootloader. Have u tried clearing the cache or maybe reset the phone to factory settings?

    Just go to your service provider and get that fixed....

    KitKat is permanent. You can factory reset the phone and you can wipe the cache but there is nothing you can do to remove KitKat and return to Jelly Bean. It has ruined lots of phones and I'm sorry your phone will never be the same.

    That's BS... This is how it's done: Return to stock (MJ5) ! WORKS ! - (ATT) Galaxy Note 3 Development - RootzWiki

    I have the same issue. My phone updated, and now I can't lock the screen, or use any apps. They all say the apps aren't responding. I'm not sure what's going on. I can't factory reset it either. If I try to restart the phone, it won't turn on but if I take the battery out and turn it on it works fine. If I try to type into google, it will freeze and won't work correctly. I don't know what's going on.
