Ok, so I bought this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2516962579...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

It said that it is T-mobile version, unlocked and rooted. (I am from UK btw)

before, I started this thread because I was suspicious that it was fake - http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...ote-3-t2930662

Now my question is where do I start with it to put custom roms on? At first when I got the phone I checked with app called "Root checker" it said that it is rooted but now after Samsung update I think it was, it says "Sorry! This device does not have proper root access"

Also I am not sure where to start because of the weird kernel that is on the device.

I attached some screens about the info I gathered about the "Note3"

ps. I have rooted my galaxy s3 in the past but that was from scratch..

Ok, I managed to root the device.. now when I tried to put on custom recovery (CWM, from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2454079)

Two vibrations
Recovery booting
Set warranty bit: recovery

Two vibrations

and then it just turns on and all works fine but ships the "recovery" that I wanted to enter...
