Hello, I've looked around for a solution to this with no joy. I managed to root my note 3 with no problem with cf autoroot only to find that I still had a stock recovery.

I tried other methods also and I just cannot get a custom recovery to flash on my device.

When I try to flash a cwm via Odin it leaves me in a bootloop.

Any ideas?

Its the SM-N9005 Model

Thanks

are you flashing the correct recovery version for your OS version? 4.3 recovery wont work on 4.4.2 and 4.4.2 recovery wont work on 4.3

You mentioned cwm but not twrp ( unless I missed it ). I linked cwm just to make sure you used the one proven to work with 4.4.2 as you didn't mention exactly which one you used and I believe there are other cwm variants ( phil's touch, original cwm ). If my attempt to help isn't appreciated, a simple yes or no would suffice. I know how to read.
