    Hello! 3 days ago I rooted my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005). The days before I played Pokémon Go and the GPS signal was perfect! Now after that I rooted the Note III it only says : "No GPS signal/GPS signal not found"! Please help! Does it have with the root to do? Please let me know! I'm worried..

    When you rooted did you just allow root privelages and still running same stock ORM, or did you flash a new AOSP ROM or something. Did you install Xposed or anything else?
    Basically, what did you do after rooting, what were the reason,.

    What ROM have you flashed? Is it a CM based ROM or a Touchwiz base or something else? If you go Settings>Location GPS is turned on I suppose? May be a daft question but perhaps the ROM just defaulted to off and easier to check the obvious 1st.
    Also I know I have seen posted all over the place that the Pokemon servers have been crashing a lot due to high influx of users, perhaps it is simply that. Does GPS work in other apps?
    Also maybe that the app has an update that might fix it? I know a lot of the time some apps aren't released on Google Play for some areas. You could try downloading XDA Labs, if you are a member over there and do a lot with root and follow forums it is quite a nice app that sometimes has updates before I get them on Play store and also keep up to date with subscribed forums etc.

    I think it was a CM ROM, and the Pokémon Go app did work perfect before I rooted my phone, and it work very bad in Google Maps..

    You could try installing your stock backup and see if you are still having problems. Could help narrow down if it is software or hardware.

    Could always flash back to stock and start over.
    Backups are your best friend.

    I'm not a professional in rooting and stuff like that, but is there a link that you could get me to flash ROM ( Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 )?

    If you want to go back to stock un-rooted,locate and download the correct firmware for your country and carrier here
    http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-N9005/
    Create a free account, free download is slow.
    Instructions for flashing at bottom of download page

    Every time you flash is a risk. If you use the correct firmware, it's minimal.

    May not fix GPS, but should help determine if software or hardware. Flashing back to stock with Odin will put you back to fresh out of the box condition. In you first post you stated GPS worked before root.

    Is it going to reset the status from 'custom' to 'Official'?

    My Android version is 5.0
    N9005XXUGPOK2
    Saw that there is none for N9005XXUGPOK2..

    There is a app at the Play Store that you can download to get your Product Code and CSC code. Would help narrowing down correct firmware.
