After the download is done you need to extract the content of the zip file and save it on your PC. The file that you will obtain is named I317MVLUDNF1 and will have tar.md5 extension.
Do not extract any other further file than that.
Now, download the Odin3 v3.09 zip file, extract its content and save it in your PC.
Turn off the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 I317M device and boot the device into Download Mode.
Open the Odin3 v3.09 program on your PC.
Use the USB cable and connect the device to the computer.
Now, the ODIN application will recognize the Note 2 device and after that you need to continue with the next step.
If the device is not recognized by the ODIN application then you need to reinstall the Samsung USB drivers once again on your PC.
Now, you can start to flash the new Android 4.4.2 (I317M) KitKat update on your PC.
Open the ODIN application and click on AP button.
Now, load the I317MVLUDNF1 tar.md5 file in ODIN.
Now, make sure that the “Re-Partition” option in ODIN is disabled.
Do not change other default ODIN settings.
Now, press the START button when you want to start the installation process of your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 device.
The new update will take around of ten minutes to be completed, and do not press any other buttons until all the files are successfully flashed.
When the installation process is done you will need to see your Note 2 device rebooting into Normal Mode.
Now you need to wait until the first reboot process is done and it will take a while to load all files until the device’s home screen will appear.
In case the ODIN application fails to complete the update by freezing or will shows on your device’s display some kind of errors, then you need to try and repeat all the above step by step guide.
In case Odin application shows that the update process was done, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 device doesn’t boot into normal mode, or the device enters into boot loop, then you will need to do a ‘factory reset’ from Recovery Mode.
If your device had a custom ROM and you install the Android 4.4.2 official KitKat over it then you need to perform a “factory reset” on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 device.
To apply a “factory reset” you need to :
Power off the device completely.
Boot the device into Recovery Mode.
From the Recovery Mode select the “Wipe data/Factory Reset” and then confirm the process.
After you’ve applied the factory reset action you need to reboot your device in normal mode.
