First of all, you should know that this custom ROM can be installed only on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (4G Model with the model number SM-N9005). In order to check your device’s model number, go to Settings->About Phone and you will see it there.
Keep in mind that the installation of the custom ROM will require you to clean the memory of your smartphone, which means that you should make a data backup by using a recovery application such as the “Clockwork Mod (CMW) Recovery.
After that, you will need to make sure that you have the USB drivers installed on your PC, or else your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will not be recognized by the computer. Last but not least, make sure that your device has 80% battery left or more.

Now, copy the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop zip and Google Apps .zip file to the microSD card that’s located on your smartphone. We suggest you to place the zip files into the root directory of the microSD card so that you can find the files easier.
After you’ve placed the zip files into the microSD card, turn off the smartphone and disconnect it from the computer. Now, perform the usual recovery mode by pressing and holding the Power+Home+Volume up buttons.
