I have this problem too but have learned to just deal with it. I don't think wanam security hack works anymore as I've toggled it and Rebooted a lot. I'm stock NC2. Just rooted

The app Triangle Away will take care of it. Once installed hit the "Reset Flash Counter" and you'll be all set.

I've heard before you can only do that on Dev edition phones and doing it to a locked bootloader is bad. Have you used this on a retail note 3? Just curious. Cause I've offered that Intel before months ago and many corrected me and said it couldn't be done to our retail phones.
