Hi,
I tried your proposed steps and got PASS! on my pc. However, when I checked my Note3 with Root Checker, it still showed rooted access is not installed properly in my device. I also cannot delete the pre-install apps. I did more than five times with same result. Could you comments.

Hi,
My NOTE 3 on Lollipop and Build Number is LRX21V.N9005DXSGBQA1.
Is this method will help to Root my phone?
Also wil it create any issue with KNOX?

Thanks

Yes you can root it but it will definitely trigger knox. I don't think it's a big deal because the warranty is long gone if I am correct.

Ok I misread your posted question. My Version is Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-9005

That is weird. Are you sure that your phone is not service provider locked.
Hi Thomas, I am pretty sure as I had it upgraded myself from Android 4 to Lollipop sometime back. Is there anything I need to do so I can use what I downloaded from your post?

Firmware version is fine. But the latter part, I asked for your phone model number, not "phone number". Please refrain from posting your phone number in any commenting system.... :)
