Thanks for all your replies, fells good I'm not alone out here with the same issue.

I went to a shop 40 km from here and bought a new Note 3.

Then I started to do some research.

1. New battery - not charging
2. Tried new charger and cord -nope
3. Change USB connector at the bottom of the phone with the new one - still not charging.
4. Tried a new stock ROM via ODIN since I got a new battery - not charging
5. Mother of all..! Changed motherboard with the new phone. Voilá! Charging even with old battery.

Well, it looks like something really bad happened with the motherboard. And I haven't barely used the phone - but rooted it.

I will definitely root again but perhaps with "universal root de la Vega" instead of CF root. Don't really know what's best.

Once again, thanks for your replies and comments. They are worth gold when in trouble.

could this be relatd to knox warranty / burned efuse?

I'd just like to ask...destroying the phone because it's rooted seems to be a overreaction, if it's the case...

I'd would like to know that too! It happened after first NFC connection with my Galaxy Gear if it's any clue.

My battery is going along the same lines, it is getting worse and worse and worse everyday since MJ7 update. Today it started showing 'Battery Disconnected' error and dropping the phone from about 2 feets height fixed it. I mean, i charge full, and next thing you know, it's down to 90%. I thought it was calibration at first, but no no it wasn't! The thing is i don't know if a new battery will fix and i wouldn't like throwing that money away for no reason.

My advise is if you can flash in a stock rom then do so and then take it back for warranty repairs. I dont think they really check the knox warranty void flag so if you are lucky then you may get a repaired or new/refurbished note 3 that is actually working.
