It is rooted by vRoot and the superuser changed to superSU
Phone is unlocked I can use any carrier with dual networking tecknology ie CDMA or GSM a single slot for a simcard so I can use either GSM simcard or CDMA simcard but not both at the same time
I wish to use the safestrap to keep my stock ROM in slot 1 and flash custom ROM in slot 2 so when my stock ROM become senescent I will restore it *to its juvenile age from the backup. I need help to

1- choose the best custom ROM which support my device so I will not loose the dual networking

Hi there. So, any of the roms you choose will allow you to use CDMA or GSM. Since the bootloader issue and needing to use Safestrap, your only options are roms that are based on official VZW Touchwiz firmware.

Recommendations:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2520550

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2523159


Both are considered stable, have great devs, and good support. I suggest to read through people's comments and see if it fits your needs.

As far as the install, it's not terribly difficult. Install Safestrap 3.65 (last stable version for JB roms), grant root access, and hit Install Recovery. Then you can boot to recovery. Once there,do a nandroid backup, and then you need to create a rom slot, activate(switch to it) then install the rom. Once that rom slot is activated and everything is installed, when you reboot, you will see the Safestrap splash screen and it'll let you reboot to recovery or continue - just hit the corresponding soft key underneath the option you want or just leave it alone and it'll boot on it's own in 10 seconds.

I should thank you from my deep heart for your quick response you are great
I need help to separate the 2 parts
1-backup my stock ROM and keep it in slot 1
2-install the new one (the hyperdrive you recommend) in slot 2 because it is not clear for me as the instruction in stalling hyperdrive is whip Every things as Sbreen94 indicated as follow

1. You MUST READ Through the Entire first page of the Thread
2.You MUST be ROOTED
3. You MUST have Safestrap installed for Non Dev Users!
4. It is Recommended to have flashed the latest 4.3MJE Stock Firmware Tar

1. Download latest Hyperdrive Rom version
2. Reboot into Recovery
3. Create Rom Slot
4. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
5. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
6. Install Rom
7. Reboot (First Boot may take up to 10 mins)
8. Let Phone sit for 10 minutes
9. Reboot again

No problem on the help. It's what I do.

But not really sure what you are needing help with now...? Those instructions look about right, except it does not clarify that you need to create and then activate the rom slot to make sure you are in the right part. Here a video guide that should make it easier to understand:

And this is the Hyperdrive for the VZW S4 installed with Safestrap which is 95% the same thing as the Note 3 in this respect besides not needing to flash the extra modules for wifi.

Watch either or both of those and I think you will feel infinitely more comfortable with doing this.
