Default [Q] Rooted Note3 won't flash new roms

i Have a rooted Note 3 (verizon) and it will not flash new roms. I tried CWR and safestrap 3.70 (latest?)

It goes through the motions but ends up either getting in a boot loop or rebooting with stock rom?

I have:

Andriod version 4.3

Baseband Version N900VVRUBMJE

Kernel 3.4.0

Build Number JSS15J.N900VVRUBMJE

SE--- Permissive

Hardware Version N900V.07


I should note that it is rooted but.... that was a pain.. and none of the methods on this site worked.... I had to use Kongo.


Thanks,

Kevin

It sounds like you may have installed Safestrap apk but not recovery?
Is Safestrap in your app drawer? If not, install the safestrap.apk
Open Safestrap - Select Install Recovery - Reboot
At boot after Samsung screen, there should be a Safestrap screen with a 10 sec timeout with a selection "recovery"

Do you see that?

But do you see the recovery screen. I'd you don't see that then safestrap hasn't installed the recovery yet. Once you have done that the You can start using a rom slot for custom roms.

Hope this helps.

Tap'n & Talk'n on my Note 3

I am currently having the same issue. fist i install safestrap recovery, then i boot into recovery with safestrap.After that i create the rom space then i activate that space and wipe it as well. From there i install the rom its says the rom is installed but it always tell me md5 not found. once it reboot it just sits at a black screen until i boot back into recovery and go back to stock. Finally my phone is a AT&T unlocked and rooted note 3. my model number is sm-900a android version 4.3. i would appreciate any help or response that i get back thanks in advance.

This safestrap is for Verizon only, you should ask this in the AT&T thread. I think you can install Clockwork Mod or Team Win recoveries on your phone.
