Good morning, all,

First off, thanks to all the hard-working devs out there who let me make my new wonderful Note 3 an even more enjoyable product. I'm now asking for some assistance, after not concretely finding answers to my questions here on XDA. Hopefully the kindness will be extended!

- Have a new Verizon SM-N900V with build MJE on it.
- Rooted with Kingo
- Disabled KNOX with SuperSU

When the Note 3 boots, I get an unlock icon with the word "Custom" on it. From my Galaxy Nexus 7/Nexus 7 experience, this usually means the bootloader is unlocked. So to check, I boot into download mode and see:

Current binary: Samsung Official
System Status: Custom
Knox kernel lock 0x0
Knox warranty void: 0x0
Qualcomm secureboot: enable (CSB)
RP SWREV: S1, T1, R1, A2, P1
Write protection: Enable

Essentially, my question is this: do I just safestrap now and flash away ROMs? I'm assuming I'd use these instructions to do safestrap: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2517610

Or is there another course of action I can take, such as directly flashing a recovery? I'm just a little confused about what my next best course of action would be.

Again, thanks in advance for any insight!

Welcome to world of a rooted phone. Since you're on MJE you'd need Safestrap 3.65. Most roms have updated to the NC2 KK leak. It's been advised by Beans and Hashcode to update to it as any further updates may lock us down completely. Safestrap is alittle more than flashing roms in Amonra or Clockwork Mod. It's kind of like dual booting on a computer but it's your phone. The only problem is Hashcode hasn't fully updated the new KK Safestrap for multipe rom slots yet so it will be one at a time for now. Read thru the Safestrap thread and look at a few youtube videos to get a feel for it then once you have the Jellybean version working and you know your way around go here for the KK NC2 leak upgrade.

Don't worry about upgrading as the best part about the leak is if anything goes wrong with your phone we can downgrade back to unrooted MJE for warranty returns, etc. Just take your time, read and follow any videos that may be listed. If my dumb ass can do it anyone can...

Our bootloader is locked. That just appears once you have root, some ppl have gotten rid of it with wanam and xposed if that doesnt work you can use triangle away "Reset Flash Counter" to get rid of the icon

If you are going to upgrade to kitkat DONT take the OTA follow a link on here and get NC2

Thumbs up
Thanks everyone! I followed your links, and also used the following videos to:

Safestrap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C7OKDsfM-Y

Then,

Install Kitkat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KibHLs0l9hs

The videos do a fantastic job explaining what Safestrap was...that was confusing initially for me.

THANKS buttons hit appropriately.
