Default [Q] Flashing Cyanogenmod 11

I am thinking on flashing cyanogen mod 11 on my note 3 with twrp recovery. This is my first time with a custom ROM and I want to know if there is a chance I could brick my device and if there is then is it fixeable?

You shouldn't have any problems flashing cm11. Just make sure it's for our phone and do a clean install.

I actually just flashed cm11 about 30 mins ago and have no problems. Just make sure to do a clean install and enjoy!

Very very hard and almost impossible to completely brick a Samsung, and its almost always fixable . Just make sure on your laptop you have the stock or stock rooted firmware and an odinable recovery so if u need to get out of a bind via Odin your all set.. Also make a backup of your current ROM via twrp so if u hate it or if its too buggy you can just restore it. Just make sure you have the cm version of your choice, and maybe a cm kernel of two on hand for fun, fresh install as users have stated and flash away.

Its not like its gone for good. Can make a TW backup if one wants those features back. It's like the best of both worlds, except we don't get updates as fast as a Nexus, N3 hardware is better though.
