Default [Q] VZW Note 2, instal CWM from RM and device locked. Help please.

I rooted my new factory refurb Note 2 and installed Rom Manager thinking I would install CWM and do a backup. I opened Rom Manager and gave root access to it, chose to instal CWM and the phone showed the download, shut down and restarts to a screen saying System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help.

I would assume that this is NOT something I want to go to the Verizon store with! Can anyone help me get back into my phone?

You have to unlock your bootloader first before loading a custom recovery. You will need to return to stock using odin. Guide can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=34891181

Once you are back to stock use Casual to root and unlock. Directions for that are in the post I previously linked to.
