    How to Update the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 to Android 5.0  Lollipop

    Update Galaxy Note 3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop via Over-The-Air (OTA) Update

    There are two types you can update your Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the first method is Firmware Update through over the air or called as OTA update, which usually a notification message will directly sent to you and saying that there is a new update available for download. You can also tap on your Galaxy Note 3 Settings>>General tab, scroll to and tap System Update. It will automatically tells you that a new update is available or your software is up to date when there is none yet. You can simply tap install now when you want to perform an update or install later.

    The second method is a firmware update through Samsung Kies. You may head-over to your  local Samsung support page from where you can download Samsung Kies from there, and install it (guide for installation) in your Windows or Mac computer. Choose the new Kies 3 which supports the Galaxy Note 3 and other Samsung devices running with 4.3 ,4.4.2 and up OS .  Once you installed Kies 3, all you need is connect your Galaxy Note 3 to the computer using the USB cable, then simply run and follow the Kies on-screen software update instructions.

    Important Note Before Performing Software Update

    According to Samsung you should prepare the following things before performing the software update. I will also add some useful insights why you should follow this procedures.

    • You should make sure your battery is fully charged before performing the software update. Do not also remove the battery during the software update is in progress. A power failures may cause damaged to your device that might results as we so-called   “soft-bricks”.  If this happens your device may just stuck on Samsung logo or welcome screen and can’t reboot normally.
    • You should back-up your important files, including contacts, emails, messages, photos, videos, apps and other stuff. Like I said while during software update process is interrupted there is a possibility that your data stored from your device internal SD card may lose or deleted when a sudden unexpected failure happens and it forces you to perform a factory.
    • Your device should not have been modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may not accept any official software update anymore or it can accept an update but it might harm your device once the update has made.  Learn about the new Samsung KNOX security suite. Most known error that says ‘firmware upgrade encountered an issue, please select recovery mode in kies and try again‘ you should try to avoid that from happening.

    If you already have the N900XXUEBOK2 Lollipop update on your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900. Just let us know how’s the update performs.
