Galaxy Note 4 Snapdragon variant (SM-N910F), Galaxy Note 3 LTE get Lollipop update

When the Galaxy Note 4 started receiving the Lollipop update on the Exynos model earlier this week, we pointed out that it looked like Samsung was finally starting to give their own CPU more attention. However, it seems the company isn’t leaving the Snapdragon variant behind, as the Lollipop update is now making its way to the Galaxy Note 4 in Germany (model number SM-N910F). The update is available on Samsung Kies, and it shouldn’t be long before it starts showing up in OTA form.

The Galaxy Note 3 isn’t too far behind either, as the LTE variant of the device (SM-N9005) is also getting Android 5.0 in a lot of countries as we write this, around two weeks after the standard variant received the update. It’s a good sign of how seriously Samsung is taking the software update business at the moment, especially since the company is also working on updating the Galaxy Note II, a device more than two years old, to Lollipop.

Keep in mind that the update might not show up on your device immediately even if the rollout has started in your country, though you can manually check if it’s available from the Settings » About phone » Software update menu. You can also download the full firmware from our firmware section to manually upgrade, though this process is only recommended for advanced users.

CORR// When will note 3 N9000Q update to lollipop ? As usual, Samsung ignore the note 3 phones with exynos which is its own processor. I regret having a Samsung Note 3 N9000Q. I won’t buy any Samsung phone any more..

I think it’s absolutely crazy that we buy a high end smartphone from the largest mobile phone Co in the world and can’t get updates this is reason I am seriously considering the iPhone in the future I have been a Samsung customer since the galaxy nexus and the Droid charge but to purchase a phone like the note 4 and not get the latest software update is ridiculous

Hi,
Where is lolipop update for Turkey? We all note 4 users wait for it but you publish lolipop for snapdragon or for note 3. You should publish for exynos because it is yours processor, and i think you pay attention exynos processors more.

Sincerely.

1. If I flash this over a NEE variant, will it disable the ability to use KNOX? (I use it, so my work only have control over whats inside KNOX, and not the whole phone)
2. Can I flash NEE when it comes, and be back on “Clean” stock with OTA updates etc.?
3. any downside in flashing different region firmware?

I successfully flashed it to my device after a few tries. For anyone who is having trouble with Odin recognizing the device when in download mode, try another cable and/or USB port on your pc. It seems like Odin is very sensitive to the slightest connection problem.

Now, I have a question. Everything works fine, but I keep getting a notification that Google Play Services is asking to be updated. But there is no update available for it in Google Play. What do I have to do to fix that?

It got fixed with a factory reset. Everything works perfectly now.

You can’t flash this rom. It’s for the N910F not N910A.

Isn’t that the AT&T version?

If you have already flashed this on your phone you could be ducked.

This is great news… Now how do we root? I’ll try the BETA version of SuperSU via TWRP but I was under the impression Lollipop needed a custom Kernel to root. If anyone has any ideas please let us all know 🙂
