    In light of the Note 7 issues I'm trying to extend my Note 3 life. I've been on a rooted 4.4.2 for a while. Was having Bluetooth problems so I tried to reset my device and get it refreshed. Instead it sent me on to Lollipop 5.0. Figured I'd try it for a while and I realize I don't want to stay - the Bluetooth I was trying to fix actually has gotten worse. Now I'm trying to ODIN back to 4.4.2 and when I moved notebooks I seem to have lost the stock firmware. SamMobile doesn't seem to have any of the AT&T Note 3 firmware any more that I can find? Can someone point me in the right direction to grab the firmware again please. I've found a number of 'questionable' links and I'm hoping to get a pointer to a reliable link to the firmware. Thanks in advance!

    You can find the firmware from the following XDA forums link:
    N900AUCUCMLG 4.4.2 KitKat | AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3

    Thanks, I do appreciate that ... I am concerned though when I see something with so many warnings associated with it! I 'think' what I'm trying to find is N900AUCUCNC2 ?

    I've found that SamMobile has the 4.3 file available (N900AUCUBMI9). Is that what I'll need to start with using ODIN? ... It's beginning to look like there is no stock 4.4.2 firmware available because it was OTAon ? If I ODIN back to 4.3 then I'll be prompted for the OTA to start moving up?

    Yep, that's the one. I actually checked Sammobile and saw the 4.3 file as well but chose to ignore it since you said you wanted 4.4.2.

    It may very well be better to go with 4.3 since you'll inevitably be prompted to download and install it after reverting to 4.4.2. (unless you disable OTA notifications on your phone). Plus updates typically come with various security patches and improvements to the software, so you might be better off upgrading your OS after all.

    Thanks a bunch for the careful thought out response(s) ... I'll pull down the 4.3 and 'hopefully' OTA will catch me back to 4.4.2. Once I get there I can root with TowelRoot and turn off / freeze the updates, etc.
