[Q] Getting back into Andriod Rooting, wanting to use a ROM
Hello XDA! I'm wanting to get back into using a rootted phone. In fact, I already have rooted my note 3.
I really want to get into a custom ROM, to remove some bloatware, and to be able to theme the system fully.
I previously had a samsung galaxy fascinate (telus) that I had rooted, and I had tried to get a custom ROM on it. Turns out though that I may had messed up! My phone was soft bricked. So I got a dongle made up for me, re-flashed froyo and got rollin again, However I was afraid to try to flash a custom rom. I used it for a year and a half on stock after that, and then decided to try to flash it again. I again had messed up the process, (I think Odin hates my PC). I ended up with a boot looped phone.
Now that I have my note 3, I'm loving it. However I don't want to have to deal with TouchWiz.
My question to you, xda. Is, what is currently involved in getting into a custom ROM on the note 3?
Is there a guide to getting started with this kind of stuff. My phone is rooted, but I have no custom recovery (I'm not sure how to do that).
I'm tempted to just wait for cyanogenmod for the note 3 as it seems to be very popular (and probably would have better support documentations). However If there is a reasonably simple alternative I can get a new rom soon.
Thanks a lot for reading this wall of text, and apologies if this gets asked frequently. I'm just terrified of losing my precious new phone
