Just thought I would drop word that I'm having almost the exact same issue with my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900T)... I get the boot loop if I choose to re-boot into recovery via the CWM app itself. The CF-auto rooting again via ODEN fixes the boot loop for that but further more... I should mention I have successfully flashed the CWM install for this device and it completes successful, but I still if manually turning power off and then holding down the keys to go into recovery... end up in the stock recovery. Hence my big problem is I'm trying to install my AROMA installer for Jedi Elite 2 and it fails in stock recovery cause you for one can't disable security verification blah blah. So that's my similar issue. I'm on 4.4.2 like many of us and clearly am rooted ok. Tried fixing permissions, etc. Even tried installing the "Safestrap" apk but it says successful but actually fails to install. I was going that route as a work around to just get my AROMA file launched so I can install my dam ROM.
Any thoughts very welcomed...

All the posts I read had mentioned that updating to 4.4.2 from 4.3 would erase all my data but after updating via odin all my data was in place. I had only lost root which I rooted again though CF Auto Root.
The problem now is that when I try to install CWM (via Odin) or TWRP (via Goo or Odin), it goes through the installation but then the phone goes into a boot loop of sorts..It's NOT the normal boot loop which gets stuck on the Samsung logo.
What happens is that the phone vibrates twice (with a 1 sec interval in between), then the Samsung Note 3 N-9005 screen appears with "Booting Recovery..." on the top left and within a sec it goes blank and then back to 2 vibrates and the screen come on to show Samsung Note 3 N-9005.
The only way I found to fix this was a battery pull and then turning on the device holding the power, home and down vol key to boot into recovery and then flashing CF Auto Root again.
I don't know why am I not able to install any of these recoveries. I've made sure I try to install the latest versions of them which are Kitkat compatible.
Anyone else with this problem or a solution?
Can a Cache and data wipe fix this? But the problem again being I won't be able to backup my ROM since i can't get these recoveries to install!
