So all you can do is wait a few days or so until a new developement is made


Thanks. I've been a member of this forum for a year and change but this is my first time posting. I just bought the Note3 and it came preloaded with KitKat 4.4.2 on ATT N900A. I previously had the S3 rooted and running Hyperdrive ROM for a while. Just a question, is there timetable as to when the root will be released by the Dev team? Thanks in advance.

I've been gone for a bit due to illness and such, but was able to get my N990A rooted with Towelroot. I haven't been able to successfully find an explanation concerning a process for installing a custom recovery and ROM yet, though. I seen to search all through the forums here, but there are so many threads that I'm not sure which one to rely on for my needs. Because of the locked bootloader on this phone, is it still not possible to install a custom recovery and a custom ROM? If so, will someone please point me in the right direction so that I can figure out how to do it? I've only ever used TWRP and CWR. I've read about safestrap (I think it was), but I don't know anything about it. Sorry for the long post, but I'm a real newbie at this and want to learn everything I can. Help a n00b out, please?

Right now safe strap is all we have. YouTube it is probably your best bet.
Installing it is simply installing an apk

Just out of curiosity, what version of Kingo and Android did you root?
