2)Root with chainfire's kernel
3)Do your manipulation

This fix is when you get bootloop after you use twrp restore option ...
The restore issue seems to be that the recovery was not successfully developed to the needs of the lte note3 variant.
So then Knox flag is set. And your efs get corrupted.
even samsung operation declines to fix it due to that.

This script that is developed by firasusman. .. thanks to him... can be flashed even from the twrp recovery that caused all issues of that matter only.
Then you can get your device back to life.
