Default [Q] [SOLVED]Conflict with Recovery and SS

To my understanding, what has happened to my phone is that it is trying to boot recovery while SafeStrap is getting in the way.

To walk through the process of what happened:
I used SafeStrap to install XNote and everything worked just fine, I used the updater script and everything.
I was in XNote and I was looking through all the settings when I accidentally pressed "Reboot to recovery"
The phone did the normal splash of "Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and had the blue "Recovery Booting" text at the top.
Of course then SafeStrap Decided to show up. All three of the following resulted in the phone failing to boot(black screen and it just sits there): Waiting for 10 seconds, Pressing "Continue" and pressing "Recovery"

I even tried booting into Download Mode to try and reset this, nothing seems to work and my phone will not start up.

I didn't realize download mode on this phone is actually only Volume Down, Home, and Power, and not Volume Up. I got it into download mode and rebooted. This post can be deleted now.
