Hey so I followed the thread. I'm now on NC5. But my phone isn't rooted. (Or not rooted properly from what root checker is saying) I tried rooting with Odin. I even flashed the recovery twrp through odin. Nothing. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

You have to stop posting in 10 different places. That is not going to help you. Stick to 1 thread. I haven't been checking the site as much recently but if you still need help I'll give it a go. If I remember correctly you wanted to run Sacs rom right? All you need to do is flash a custom recovery using Odin then flash the rom of choice in recovery. As long as the rom is rooted(they all are) you will then have root. No need to gain root by any other method unless staying stock NC5.

Have you turned debugging on in developers opinions before going into dl mode? Just wondering.

Remember that you are doing this of your own free will and if anything happens negatively including Vader going back to the dark side it's your fault.

If all else fails go back to the basics.
Go back to the cleanest stock rom.
1)You would want to back up anything onto a computer and your SD card including nandroid if possible if you don't know what a nandroid is you may not yet have the technical ability to make one.
1a) download the latest stock version of 4.4.2 use this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2712205

2)go here
http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/
Print it out
3) download the Odin from here
4)the above has links to Odin and step by step instructions with pictures
5) download towelroot from http://towelroot.com
Put it on your SD card

5) pull your SD card safely and reset your phone with factory data reset or if your running a custom recovery through it.

6) follow the steps from
http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/
you should of printed it out....
7) after it says pass and is booting put your SD card in.
8) side load/install towelroot
8a) run towelroot and make it rain
9) install root checker verify it worked and then a superuser program.
At this point you will have a rooted 4.4.2 stock rom.


For the latest stock version of 4.4.2 use this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2712205
And yes the Odin listed in the unroot website flashes that rom on my sprint phone without a problem.


Worked for me.
