Flash PIT - this will fix it
You need to flash the PIT with ODIN, latest version (3.09, I believe). Google for a download mirror that hosts the PIT for whichever type of note 3 you have, then flash it with odin (should work while in the invalid software screen). Then, if it doesn't reboot, just remove the battery and unplug that sucka. When it reboots, it should go back to download mode or just regular bootup. I recommend setting up adb, which makes it much easier to put the phone into whatever mode you desire with a simple dos command.

enable android recovery mode
SM-N90OV

ok so I once got to the point to where I could not but factory reset my phone and so I did settings > backup and restore > factory reset > YES I'M SURE!!! then my phone when into recovery mode as it should normally only to tell me that it could not enter recovery. Verizon's fault and now I cant access my recovery mode. is there a way to get back into it so I can finally flash a new rom. oh I had figured out how to get out of the boot loop thing by entering download mode and canceling. but it would be nice to be able to mess with this beast of a phone. please help me. I don't want to do something I wasn't supposed to. im not sure want to do with klms agent deals with knox right?

hi
i am rooted (de la Vega ) safestrap installed using Jelly beans 6 & stock Rom as well. i don't know how but i am not being able to get in the recovery to format the device.

Getting "System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help."
What i do is getting into the download mode and only pressing Volume down to continue boot and Viola my phone restarts every time, but the thing which is pinching me is i can't able to format the phone.. Help required please.
