Please I need some help! I just got a Note 3 today (I had a Note 3 when it first came out) and installed safestrap to it. I put a rom on my 64gb card and backed up the stock rom and then wiped all data, system, cache, etc. and when I tried to flash the rom it failed. I tried to do my restore and that failed also. I rebooted to recovery from safestrap and it went to the factory recovery. When I try to reboot the phone it just sits at the Samsung screen with the custom and lock icon. I don't know what to do. I think its the 64gb card that wouldn't allow the rom to be flashed or the restore to work. Is there an odin back to mj5? I think it's the only thing I can do.

I was able to restore to mj5. Do you know if there is a problem with 64gb sdhc 10 micro sd cards or flashing roms to the stock rom slot?

After a lot of playing around I think it is safer to use a 32GB for flashing or internal. Sometimes recovery doesn't play nice with a 64GB.

i would always recommend flashing from the internal with safestrap. just seems to be more stable. keep the file on your Ext for safe keeping but copy it to your internal for flashabilty<<<
