What can I do? I have tried this several times. I am pissed because I own my phone/compute "my phone is a computer" and I want to do what ever I want with it. The whole point why I jumped from the iPhone was I wanted the freedom of doing what ever I want with my android device.
First off, just to let you know. You have Tripped KNOX, so you officially dont have warranty with verizon.
Now with that out of the way i will help you out with what you are asking for: Obtain root & Install Custom Rom minus bloatware
1. Uninstall all Samsung Drivers and Kies.
2. Uninstall Kingo Android Root.
3. go here
and download both files.
4. Install Samsung Drivers 1.5.33
5. Install Kingo Android Root v1.1.6
6. Use Supplied USB cable in a 2.0 Usb Slot.
7. Obtain Root.
Once you have obtained Root, continue to install Chainfire SuperSU
( or google PLay) and Safestrap
Follow the instructions in the link to Safestrap to install it, download approved 4.3 roms for the VZW Note 3
and load to sd card.
Once SS is installed and have roms to flash in your sd card, reboot and SS will ask if you want to continue or boot to Recovery.
Boot to recovery, select boot, activate a virtual rom slot, and install your roms. Once you have a rom you like use this to install on your stock slot space, for more space.
This is the link that explains everything i did. Minues the information of the Previous Kingo Version 1.1.6
You can not install CM, it has to be a rom based off the MJE build for now.
Hope this helps you out, as it is what i did and am using the Jellybeans rom and am LOVING IT!
