As far as the latest update is concerned, Samsung Technologies has confirmed the approval of Android Lollipop 5.0 for Note 3. This means that the users with Note 3 (preferably SM-N900 and SM-N9005 LTE versions) would be able to update their firmware to the latest release.

Step I: Backup Your Data:
The first and the most important step—that is also a precautionary measure as well—is to backup your data including your contacts, photos, and files. Although, updating your Android firmware has never been a reason for your data loss, it is highly recommended to backup your data.
Step II: Proceed With Updating Your Firmware:
Once you are contented that all your data is now safe, follow the following steps in your Note 3 device:
- Go to your “Settings” icon from your home screen.
- You will see 4 main tabs. Go to the “General” tab to perform the next step.
- Touch the “About Device” option that you can see as the very last option in the “General” tab.
- Touch on “Software Update” tab that you can see as the very first option in the “About Device” option.
- Click on “Update” option and wait for the device to connect the server via your wireless connection.
Step III: Wait for the Device To Download Firmware:
As soon as you connect your device to the server, it starts downloading the firmware. Wait for the downloading process to complete. Normally, a small window pops ups showing the installation progress. Do not reboot your device in the middle of the installation process; otherwise, you have to start from scratch.
Step IV: Installing the Firmware:
After completing the installation process, your device will reboot once. Upon rebooting, it will ask your permission to proceed further with updating the applications, contacts, and files. It may ask you to update KNOX (a manufacturer’s application to secure your device). Once done, that’s all. You can now enjoy the latest features of your new Android Lollipop update.
