Default Recovery is not seandroid - N900W8

I was trying to root my GN3 SM-N900W8 but after using Odin, it gave me a boot loop with the error

Recovery is not seandroid

My phone was running 4.4.2 (I think)

Canadian Note 3

Thank you, I have no idea why this one worked and the N900W8 one failed.

The one for N900W8 hasn't been updated for 4.4.2.

The one downloaded by GooManager.
I suppose that one won't work since I'm on a n9005 root?

I've seen goomanager screw up some phones on few posts recently. Just download this and flash through odin.

How can I tell if twrp was installed successfully?

Figured it out, it worked successfully.

If I want to download custom ROMs(Cyanogenmod specifically), what version should I be looking for?
