Note3 4.4.2 firmware vs CF-Auto-Root
Posted on 2014-01-13, 294 comments, 274 +1's, imported from Google+/Chainfire

NOTICE: This content was originally posted to Google+, then imported here. Some formatting may be lost, links may be dead, and images may be missing.

I have just updated the CF-Auto-Root for the Note3, and it now works with the 4.4.2 firmware for the Note3.

I had to rebase on the new 4.4.2 recovery to get it working. I also had to update my Note3 to the latest bootloaders to even get it to boot at all (regardless of root).

As such, I can't say for sure if the new CF-Auto-Root still works on 4.3 firmwares, so if you're still on a 4.3 firmware, please be so kind as to test and report back.

For the same reason, I'm also not sure if it'll work if you have not updated your bootloaders. I'm sure some of you have flashed this latest firmware without the new bootloaders, so let me know if it works for that case as well.

Great job. Thanks!

Stressman 06 commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:11:

sorry for my english

can i flash 4.4.2 on 4.3 jm7 via odin mobile pro and keep the root ?


Andrew Tan commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:11:

Wow! thanks a lot. It is working. :D

Jurij Šlajnar commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:12:

What recovery did you used?

Guillaume Nonotte-Varly commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:15:

That's work great on my GN3 ! thanks a lot ^^

Jorrit Jongma commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:16:

+Martial Bessiere Mobile ODIN is not updated yet with 4.4.2 support. That's coming soon though. In the meantime, just use Odin + CF-Auto-Root.

Shayne O'Connor commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:16:

Does this trigger Knox?

Stressman 06 commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:24:

+Jorrit Jongma thanks ,i wait for MOP update,i want keep knox 0x0

Farhan Arain commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:29:

Where can I find the 4.4.2 firmware for my N9005?

Bernard Callesen commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:44:

Yes new cf auto root works on s4 using stock 4.3 it even auto updated to mk2 after rooted

Marius Dalacu commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:44:

Is triangle away working for this bootloader? Thank you.

Célia Michenaud commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:48:

+Martial Bessiere If the new bootloader is needed to boot in 4.4.2 (like +Chainfire says) you probably won't be able to use Mobile Odin at all to upgrade since it doesn't flash bootloaders. Plus, the new bootloader will be patched (since they all are, starting from MJ3) and you won't be able to use Root de la Vega anymore.

Unless people find a new security flaw (which no-one has found in the MJ3+ bootloaders), it looks like we're screwed.

Any chace one of you guys know any tool to modify value on igg games...but dont say gamechi or game haker or the usualy stuff they change but dont keep the value

Farhan Arain commented on 2014-01-13 at 11:54:

Sorry for the question but what's this about bootloader? I just flashed my Note 3 with 4.3 ML2 firmware, and rooted it using Chainfire's CF Root. Now if I flash 4.4.2 over it, it won't boot? I thought stock ROMs always came with their own bootloaders.. no?

Sen ectus commented on 2014-01-13 at 12:01:

Is this knox safe?

I get stuck in the bootloop saying 'recovery booting'.

What I do wrong?

Tried multiple times 

Recovery Booting...

Recovery is not SEANDROID enforcing

Set Warranty Bit: recovery

Any suggestions? 

Jim Chris commented on 2014-01-13 at 14:23:

Do you by any chance tried CWM, it doesn't work for me, despite the root? Thanks a lot for your hard work.+Chainfire

+Chainfire The latest version (the one mentioned in your post) does not work with my SM-N9005 running 4.3. I had to use an older version of your root in order to root this device.

Dan Verwoert commented on 2014-01-14 at 10:04:

Yes, but Chainfire requested that anyone still on 4.3 see if it would still work, it didn't. So I upgraded to 4.4.2 and then it worked fine.

Ruud Faber commented on 2014-01-14 at 11:16:

I install cf-root on 4.4.2 my phone  now in a loop it say:

Fadhil Ali commented on 2014-01-14 at 11:20:

+Ruud Faber which cf root version do you use? The new one or the old one? Try flash it again with the new cf root

Jay Bains commented on 2014-01-14 at 14:03:

+Fadhil Ali I did it earlier with the new one posted here and the same thing happened. Had to restore my phone completely.

What recovery does cf auto root flash? Hi mr chainfire I was trying to flash kit kat firmware To my tmobile note 3 with mobile odin Pro but it said my device is not supported then an option popped up to generate a dump file but then it said don't do it causeyou won't be able to get a refund so I had to get the refund without risking the app not Working and not getting my money back? What do you suggest? Thanks

Roveen Joe commented on 2014-01-15 at 16:45:

+Ruud Faber  I just figured it out. try this. 

1) remove battery 

2) press and hold the volume down button + power button+ home button (download mode)

3) while holding the buttons ask some one to put the battery in.

when u do that it goes into download mode. then cancel it . ur phone should boot. and mine knox warranty void became 0x1

David Walker commented on 2014-01-20 at 18:35:

Thanks for your work.  Are you going to work on updating the CF-Auto-Root for the AT&T S3 w/ the 4.3 update.  When I did it from the xda forums, everything worked until Knox blocked it.  There has been another Samsung security update.  My phone is recognized as rooted by flixster and some other apps, but SU and TriangleAway can't get root access because Knox blocks access.  Thanks!

Shival Wolf commented on 2014-01-21 at 02:00:

Using on the 4.3 firmware cf-root apparently succeeds but then gets stuck on recovery booting.

it also sets the knox flag. this post helped get it starting again.

However there is no root on the device after this failure.

I am going to update to 4.4.2 I wanted it anyway.

Works fine :)  If one an original proficient product of Samsung OTA flash, is not raised Knox Counter. So it must be possible to adapt Custom of Rome accordingly with it this there also not passed. Of my opinion only one code segment must be found and be taken over.

chris me commented on 2014-01-28 at 05:04:

you are the man! I recently rooted my Note 3 running 4.3, I just flashed 4.4.2 and used your new auto root and it worked perfect. Thank you. By the way I'm using a note 3 from mexico SM-900W8 and it works just fine. What I am in dire need of is network unlock!!! I have looked everywhere!!! when I put in the AT&T sim i get a message that says network locked with an option to dismiss but no option to put a code or anything. Do you know what the hell I can do to achieve this? Anyone?

Really, if anyone knows how to get the old auto-root I could really do with it so I can perform the root on 4.3. Many thinks in advance.

Netz Hog commented on 2014-02-06 at 13:07:

gave me a scary moment - did not work on my European note 3 (sm-n9005xxudmj7) running 4.3

got stuck in bootload.

like so many before me: 

Recovery booting......

Recovery is not seandroid enforcing

Set Warranty Bit : Recovery

took me a while to find out how to get out of this. and it's easy. just so disappointing that nobody here with the same problem didn't get an answer or any support.

so here's what helped me

try turning your phone on downloading mode{ vol down,power ,home button} when it ask press up to continue and down to cancel,press down button it will restart your back to normal...

still no root though, and of course no more updates either. i'm glad the phone is working at least. now i'll search further 

Rob Fisk commented on 2014-02-06 at 14:23:

I did re-mention how to get out of it 4 posts above after reading it in a previous post in the thread so there is advice on how to get the phone working again, albeit rootless and with no recovery.

I am sure the almighty Chainfire will resolve this soon but had been hoping there was a link to the pre 4.4 version that those of us still on 4.3 could use in the mean time as there are a couple of posts about using the older version but I have had no luck finding it yet.

JP van Polanen commented on 2014-02-15 at 17:27:

Seems like many people have the same problem. I just bought my NOte3 today. Rooting went fine with cf auto root but then you want to install a custom recovery and i got bootloops.  It's possible to load the phone normally but there is no way to get into a recovery... Who is "to blame" ? Who will help us to get a recovery so we can flash a rom.

sebke CCU commented on 2014-02-17 at 09:20:

You guys with the boot loops are you sure you are using the latest version of autoroot?  I flashed the Polish 4.4.2 and had a boot loop when using the old autoroot that I used on 4.3.  Downloaded the new version and root worked first time.

Would you mind posting the correct link of Cf auto root?, I'm pretty sure I'm using the right one but just to make sure and I have the SM-900T 4.4.2 kit Kat. Thanks.

Sorry for my bad english :D

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-12 at 18:10:

if you have android 4.3 chainfire files will work with you but if you have android 4.4.2 follow my steps

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-12 at 21:32:

ohhh I Mean My steps from above comments, but any way I will tell you in details but first what's your android version?

Gali Janach commented on 2014-03-13 at 19:28:

Hello people. Since the update to Kitkat 4.4.2 my Note 3 (SM-N9005) no longer writes to the external SD Card and so i figured out i need to root my phone in order to regain Write permissions on the external SD card.

I have uninstalled/disabled KNOX from my phone as i don't use it and don't need it. My question is this:

If i root my phone, will KNOX still affect my root by throwing error messages? i am not bothered about the KNOX warranty it's just that i would really like to be able to write back to my SD card!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Nick Crowe commented on 2014-03-13 at 19:48:

Check xda forums this is a common issue, basically you need to edit your permissions xml file as the write to extsd option has been removed

Nubin Stanley commented on 2014-03-13 at 20:17:

This might sound silly.... but still here it goes....

I just got ma new Note 3 (SM-N900 - Exynos version) (bought a new one after i got refunded for my previous one after a long battle with Samsung).... Wanna root.... But couldn't exactly find answers to all my questions....

1) I am on 4.4.2. N900XXUDNB2. Can I just use CF-Auto-Root to get root access ?

2) This alone will not trip the knox counter I suppose ?

3) Can I flash CWM/TWRP ? Without tripping Knox ?

4) Does the Exynos version even have an eFuse like the Snapdragon version ?

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-13 at 20:40:

1- First you can't use CF-Auto-Root it won't work because it's not updated to your device it's updated only to n9005

2- No it will trip it

3- No you can't

4- I think yes

If you want to root without tripping your knox here is the solution provided by wwjoshdew at‏ 

unfortunately I  rooted my n900s with traditional medthod which trips my know If you want to know the traditional method just tell me :D

Nubin Stanley commented on 2014-03-13 at 20:44:

Hehe.... Thanks for the directions though ;)

Even with the method u jst mentioned I can just get root I suppose ? If I need a custom recovery/rom Knox has to be tripped ?

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-13 at 20:50:

yes it will be tripped if you use custom recovery or rom , I think with wwjoshdew method you can root your device without tripping knox

Nubin Stanley commented on 2014-03-13 at 20:51:

Lemme check it out... and one more question. ... does it matter that am on 4.4.2.... it shud still wrk right..?

Anyhow, thanks... :)

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-13 at 21:00:

yes, it should still work because it works like the traditional method(which works on my n900s 4.4.2 KitKat) but the difference that it root the device without CWM recovery so I think it should still work 

you are welcome any time :)

Gali Janach commented on 2014-03-13 at 22:12:

Just a quick update:

Rooted successfully and with KNOX disabled via SuperSU everything is working beautifully.

I do have 2 more questions:

  1. Would Triangle Away app change "Custom" to "Official"? it shows counter as 0 without even resetting it! Is this normal?

  2. Interested in purchasing the "Regionlock away" app but not sure if it works on the latest firmware. Can you please comment if you managed to get it to work with the latest XXUENB7 build number on the SM-N9005? My Note 3 is factory sim unlocked BTW so i wouldn't need it for experimenting with sim unlocking my device.

Many thanks to all

Daniel Barreto commented on 2014-03-14 at 14:18:

Triangle Away

Is not working the i9505 firmware I9505VJUFNB2_I9505ZTOFNB3

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-15 at 01:26:

+Daniel Barreto I have no experience with Triangle Away yet cuz I have note 3 which Triangle Away didn't work with it sorry

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-15 at 01:31:

+Mia Sanders you must have the correct CWM for your android version cuz it differ from version to version (CWM for 4.3 is different from CWM for 4.4.2 KitKat) get the correct CWM and then flash it again, if you still stuck in bootlooping then you must flash your official stockrom using Odin and then flash the correct CWM

John Perry commented on 2014-03-28 at 04:26:

I used the root for the 9005 international but it says this will work. I was on 4.4.2 when I rooted it.

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-28 at 10:00:

+Chad Cunanan like this tutorial( you will flash the stock rom using odin then you are on kitkat 4.4.2

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-03-28 at 10:03:

+Avineesh Goswami  it's not here yet you must wait or use the normal method of rooting

then reboots

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-10 at 13:23:

+Vlad Pyshnenko yes just use the CWM method I mentioned above but use your version CWM files instead

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-10 at 13:25:

+Jordan Smith this is because you used wrong files ,you need to flash the stock samsung rom and then try rooting again but with correct files for it and it's android version

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-12 at 15:47:

+patrick Wright what android version you have and what method did you use (CWM method or cf-auto-root)?

Stu Weiss commented on 2014-04-13 at 01:15:

Mahmoud sherif. I took a chance and rooted my phone. It worked! I also got an app TWRP. Does that mean I don't need to use odin to install that recovery on my note 3? I In I need help help in so so many areas. For instance, I I want to get rid of all the bloat ware. So many things. My Version is the Canadian version

SM-N900W8. And N900W8VLUCNB7

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-13 at 16:50:

+Stu Weiss What do you mean by "I got an app twrp" you flashed twrp recovery or what?

Stu Weiss commented on 2014-04-13 at 17:46:

Mahmoud sherif. I tried to put TWRP on my phone and now it keeps booting to "booting" I want to know what version to download and how to to put in my phone. I downloaded an app called TWRP. I downloaded the version either that version didn't work or I did it wrong. Please help. Mahmoud

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-18 at 22:46:

+Stu Weiss you just need to flash a CWM using odin for your device, cwm files for your device is in this url ( ) iust download and flash don't use recovery apps I think it's better not to use them and take care if you have 4.3 download cwm files for it and so on if you have 4.4.2

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-19 at 17:43:

+Danny Marquez I think cannot , but you may be a lucky man like Chris Darrow who tried successfully it on N900T but I don't recommend you to do this you my brick your device

you must download twrp files for your device version and your 4.4.2 android version (the files for 4.3 is differ than files for 4.4.2 take care)

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-19 at 18:54:

+Danny Marquez  hhhhhhhhhhhh lol, after you install twrp or cwm download this superuser app ( into your phone sdcard and boot into recovery and select install zip from sdcard and install it, then you have succesfully root your device

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-19 at 19:58:

+Danny Marquez ohhhh you need to root it without tripping knox , if you have android 4.3 root de la vega should work but if you have 4.4.2 no root without tripping knox is out yet

mahmoud sherif commented on 2014-04-19 at 20:26:

that's very nice, tell me first do you flashed a CWM or TWRP through odin?

lance havok commented on 2014-04-20 at 19:28:

Today I rooted my Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9006 running KitKat 4.4.2 (N9006ZCUEND1) after I failed at it for about ten times... earlier I used the recommended CF-Auto-Root-hlte-h3gzc-smn9006.tar.md5 and it never worked, so today I was desperate enough to just try the one for the SM-N9005 ... and it worked!

So, I used CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5 and it worked perfectly. ROM Manager and Root Checker confirmed it.

Great job, Chainfire. Thank you for your services!

iTek IMEI commented on 2014-04-28 at 18:11:

Yeah I'm afraid of that too because there's no Official Stock ROM to flash in case of that, I just want the root to do a process because is a client phone

I will never purchase another Samsung device I cant believe they let At&t talk them into locking there bootloaders  customers want to have total control over the products they purchase and what ever happened to the customer is always right mentality when providing a service/product

If you cant tell I'm totally disgusted with Samsung and AT&T for that matter

Is there a solution in the works for those of us stuck with an AT&T 4.4.2 Note 3 I just got mine this week and it already had the 4.4.2 on it otherwise I would have not updated to 4.4.2 because of the A3 bootloader BS.

Cassandra G. Bray-Hendrickson commented on 2014-05-13 at 18:20:

+Stewart Taylor 1st Post= Good suggestion but it will never fly "(It simply makes to much sense)" The part about it being Bad business is spot on as well

2nd Post= "Quote" ""no further development is being sought for this version of the hand set"" Totaly un acceptable. 

"Quote" ""At the end of the day I'm done with Samsung""   


Total Boycott in effect here....

Unless they were to ever so kindly leak an Unlocked version of the A3 Bootloader that could be installed over the currently locked A3 NC2 and would allow for the device to be rooted as well as the installation of an open source recovery so we can run nandroid B-Ups.....   "But Who am I kidding, This is likely to never happen"

Peter Fellin commented on 2014-05-14 at 13:02:

My SM-N9005 LTE (not carrier-branded) ended up sham rooted. That is, Root Checker declares it rooted but it is not rooted fully enough to allow unwanted Samsung programs and firmware to be removed.

+Matthew Deakyne i would like to see the sm-n900v supported as well but i wonder if there isnt a issue with not being able to flash it due to our locked bootloader or something along those lines ive noticed other varriants of our phone have been able to get custom recoverys and we havent i suspect it may be the same for cf auto root but would be cool if it showed up for our phone

steven smith commented on 2014-05-19 at 17:13:

People with AT&T Note 3.  I read on the Bounty and Root site for NC2.  A senior member stated "It's being worked on but won't be released until the dev is ready. Just confirmed last night he has a working downgrade but reboots random and upon reboot the phone resets and wipes itself. We just have to be patient. 

This is like the iPhone jailbreak some say we won't ever get one for whatever new firmware was released then what happens the jailbreak is released lol the root will come sit back and enjoy your expensive phone its still the best thing smoking lol"  So there is hope.

steven smith commented on 2014-05-19 at 19:42:

Maybe u could root and flash to a 4.4 rom

steven smith commented on 2014-05-19 at 20:04:

or Maybe you don't like customization and flashing.

Rico Porter commented on 2014-05-20 at 00:31:

Theirs over $15000 on the line to the first one to make it happen believe me it's being worked on just not publicly open for discussion. The downgrade is necessary due to the locked bootloader pretty much same process with 4.3 but much harder so it seems at the moment. Within a couple weeks we will have root on 4.4.2 or have the ability to downgrade to rock a custom 4.4.2

nate mo commented on 2014-05-25 at 00:24:

I just saw this I have note 3 n900a 4.4.2 build kot49h is the bounty still out for the root method?

Ricky sanchez commented on 2014-06-01 at 14:30:

Damn well I got one year looks like I'm switching to t mobile then after this

Roger White commented on 2014-06-01 at 17:56:

can I use this on my SM-N900A? It's running 4.4.2 and I hate it. I can't find a tool anywhere to root it so I can remove the ton of bloatware from my phone.


My apologies, I posted before I read other comments. Apparently I'm stuck with 4.4.2 even though I'm not on AT&T service, simply because I have an AT&T handset.

Nevertheless, I still have to find a way to remove the bloatware. Because, the update, which I didn't authorize, installed several more apps that I never use, yet want ever more of my personal information and permissions.

Bob Hicken commented on 2014-06-03 at 05:11:

It seems to me that root is based on tricking the bootloader to load a file that then enables one to have control over permissions of all files including system files. Can't some Chinese company just create a new bootloader er and a way to push it onto the phone? The phone is no different than a computer. I would gladly void the warranty on my phone just to have root again.

Anthony Nesperos commented on 2014-06-03 at 12:54:

I don't have a problem with AT&T until one day they F#$% my bill and ever since I've been disliking them lately. I really like their signal reception in my area and also the fact I have unlimited DATA from being grandfathered from back in the day. I'm also an Android fan I love how I can manipulate my Phone to my liking for whatever the hell I want. but this new thing that AT&T is playing Communist is really Pissing me Off!! Why are they pulling an Apple on loyal consumer? there's no need for this BS! 

PS. I need honest advice please. Should I change carrier or buy unlock phones from now on? ( considering AT&T signal reception is really good and reliable in my area)

Brad Burbank commented on 2014-06-04 at 21:38:

So what's the latest on the 4.4.2 root? I have the Verizon LTE SM-900V...

Roger White commented on 2014-06-05 at 02:12:

Anthony, I'd say If you have a good thing (being grandfathered in) don't lose it. Just get unlocked phones from now on. That's what I'm doing too.

Branden Granger commented on 2014-06-05 at 18:29:

I am also hoping the N900V will be supported soon

Brad Burbank commented on 2014-06-05 at 18:32:

As far as I know, there hasn't really been any news on a root exploit.

Richard Okongwu commented on 2014-06-06 at 10:52:

Great job!

Sen ectus commented on 2014-06-08 at 11:46:

I presume this still trips knox?

Don Robinson commented on 2014-06-09 at 22:44:

Base Number - L720VPUFNAE

build number - KOY49H.L720VPUFNAE

Galaxy S4 SPH-L720 {now i see you have}


Does that make a difference? I guess what i am trying to say is should mine be saying {CF-Auto-Root_jflite-jfltexx-SPH-L720} or something like it.

Also my phone was rooted, i had a problem and had to uninstall root to get the phone working again. Now that things are back, can i or this phone be re-rooted? Reason why i am asking is now it has that 4.4.2 software update, that loaded by itself when i first turned it on and now everytime i try to root super user says not rooted.

Anthony Nesperos commented on 2014-06-09 at 23:57:

I'm buying unlock phones from now on especially there's lots of affordable to choice from like OnePlus one, nexus, moto X. Heck, even company like Blu is producing great smartphone lately. or completely switch to t mobile.

Robert Romano commented on 2014-06-17 at 12:53:

This is my 1st time trying to root a phone.

I am having an impossible time rooting my galaxy note 3

SM-N9006 (Chinese)

Android ver: 4.4.2

baseband: N9006ZCUENE1

I tried several methods, mainly ODIN with " n9006-cwm-recovery-"

the problem is that every time I have to reboot the phone in recovery mode, I get:



Set Warranty Bit: recovery (yellow)

and it bootloops till that. ( root de la vega, kingo, ODIN, etc... same problem, grrrr!)

I am guessing that's because I am using the wrong firmware to flash my phone

I just want to install Google play store ( Chinese note 3 blocked it, some bull**!!!!) and customize my phone

any help please?
