Unhappy [Q] SM-N900W8 stuck in bootloop after flashing with odin!!!

This has probably been mentioned before...but I will try anyways. I tried galaxynote3root*dot*com/galaxy-note-3-root/how-to-root-galaxy-note-3/ but it didn't work. Then I tried CF-Auto-Root-hltecan-hlteub-smn900w8 and it put my phone in a permanent boot loop and says recovery is not seandroid enforced!!! This is my work phone so I really hope someone can help.

So it says that about recovery and then what? You must give more info.

But I'll save you the trouble.
Go into download mode and flash stock firmware and start over. Do not use cf auto root this time. Lets get your device working. I can easily help you but you must follow my direction

If you are currently on 4.4 then use this one instead.

It keeps bootlooping and wont let me access download mode. Starts recovery and then says not seanddoid enforced and reboots and will not respond to and key combinations to reboot in any mode.

I don't think download mode can be messed up unless in a very serious instances.

Just to make sure, here's how to access download mode;

- remove battery and put back in but don't press power
- press Vol Down + Power + Home Button all at the same time until the warning message appears on the screen, then let go of all the buttons
- press Vol Up to enter download mode

Thers no way from what you've told us that you did that you're unabke to enter dl mode. You've either done something else that you failed to mention or you're not entering dl mode properly. Keep teying amd make it happen

If you cannot put your phone in download mode through button presses, then I think you're only option is a jig short of sending it in for a repair.

replace *dot* with . and it become a hyperlink. I used that tutorial and then when I restarted my phone after I saw that it didn't do anything i then did CF Autoroot. Then after everything was done I got the error and am unable to boot into download or recovery.
