I am coming from 4.3 stock with Root via Root de la vega. I flashed TWRP 2.6.8.
I followed the steps in the beginning of this guide. 1) Downloaded the latest 4.4.2 Kitkat stock Tmobile firmware 2) Flashing it via Odin 3) I already had TWRP 2.6.9 installed so I didn't feel the need to flash Philz Recovery.
After flashing firmware and flashing recovery TWRP 2.6.8 and than 2.7 again, I am stuck on the Samsung Note 3 intro screen. It just hangs there. I read on a earlier post flashing 4.4 will install a bootloader. Can that be the cause?
Right now I can only access TWRP recovery and enter download mode. Should I download 4.3 Tmobile firmware and flash it in Odin to restore my previous settings?
I haven't that issue since my note 3 already came with 4.4.2 but i had the same problem on the note 2 when 4.3 came out
What i had to do is flash the stock 4.3 via odin and then root it then flash twrp and the rest custom rom etc..
What you could do for your issue is Flash the stock 4.4.2 via Odin then find the CF Auto root from chainfire find it on the thread i don't have the link right now then flash the TWRP 2.7 via odin too and then custom rom
