    Simply put,

    I miss being able to use Xposed Framework on my Note 3, ever since Lollipop. Xposed Framework author seems intent on never fixing the boot loop problem and instead referring us to get a deodexed version ROM.

    Here is the problem. I have an SM-N900 Note 3 phone. All the results I find for deodexed Roms are for carrier locked versions and for Jelly Bean. As we know, I cannot downgrade because Samsung Knox will kill it for trying. Even though, it isn't my daily phone now, I still don't want to purposely brick it. But it seems like everyone wants to ignore that this one exists at all.

    Google isn't helping me find what I need. Help, please.

    Okay! Quick update.

    Found this on XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...m-stock-n900xxuebok2-deodexed-151227-t3308668

    Being it's based on the latest, official build, is very tempting. Everything appears to check out, including Xposed framework support. :D

    However, I noticed that it's based on Country Code XXV; my Note 3 is Country Code TTT.

    Is that going to cause any problems? Might there be a way to change that to reflect my current Country Code?

    Anyone? :(

    I might have TWRP and everything on this phone, but I certainly don't want to brick it or anything like that.

    Since it's a TWRP ROM, it's possible that restoring your backup will be an adequate failsafe. Go ahead and let me know how it goes? If all goes well then you can brag & link what you used in OP, answering your own questions

    Is there a way to maybe edit the ROM's country code beforehand?

    Maybe, but it does imply it updates the modem/baseband. And as we know, Knox doesn't like downgrading that for any reason, and will insta-brick a phone if one tries.

    What, does all of Androidforums literally not care about this phone anymore?

    I appreciate your efforts, of course. But given it's proving to have usefulness even after not being my phone anymore, I am not in some huge hurry to kill it off or anything.
