I had this happen to me when I messed up flashing twrp. Pull the battery for 30 minutes, then put the battery in while holding power home and vol down.

That's what worked for me.

Sent from my leanKernel 2.5 powered stock 4.4.2 SM-N900T

I encountered the same issue after flashing CWM Touch to my SM-N900T (Note3-Aus) running Infamous Rom on the BioShock kernel. After being stuck in the loop for a fair while I removed the battery, went to grab a cup of tea before completely raging at the phone, went back and put the battery back in. The phone did not boot automatically this time, a good sign I thought to myself. I then went on to hold down VolumeDown + Home + Power to see if I could get into download mode. I successfully booted into download mode and selected the reboot option. My Note3 then went on to boot successfully. Hopefully this helps

I recently had the same issue......heres step by step:

1. with the battery OUT, grab the usb and plug into phone and computer

2 press volume down, power, and home at the same time.you should be in download mode at this point, and just press volume up to get into download mode.

3. open kies. and at this point you'd want to restore back sto stock as follows:

4. go to tools, firmware upgrade and intialisation

5. follow the on screen direction and then just wait.

6. if you want to re root, then feel free to once the phone is up and running.

i have tried this method so many times and hasnt failed me yet. IF this has helped anyone, please press the thank you button!

I resolved the problem by flashing the phone back to T-mobile stock using Odin. In my case, the recovery was corrupted and hence the issue. After flashing back to stock, I was then able to root and install a TWRP recovery successfully.

I pulled the battery out and then inserted it back in but it boots the phone automatically with the same recovery booting message and restarts every 2 seconds. I cannot boot into recovery or put the phone in Download mode. Have I finally screwed my phone up? Any help would be very appreciated.

I'm having the same problem, what I do is take out the battery put it back in and try to turn on the phone on recovery mode, and it will give me the option to restart the phone. Hope it works

Same problem has happened to me, do you guys know if the jigs are universal? The ones I see on amazon and ebay dont list the note 3 at all so I just want to be safe. Since upgrading to nf9 the recoveries have given me major issues, TWRP was really buggy so I switched back to CWM and this happens.

Scratch that, just rebooted. I would still like to know if its universal though, in case this happens again. Doesnt hurt to be prepared

Note 3 (sm-n900w8) will not go into recovery mode after CWM Flash
Helllo Sorry if this is not in the proper place I have not had much experience posting.

my Phone is a Note 3 (sm-n900w8) Canada (rogers)
running Lollipop 5.0
base version n900w8vlu2doc4
kernel 3.4.0-4348112
dpi@swdd5608#1
build number ..... lrx21v.n900w8vlu2doc4
ap: n900w8vlu2doc4

I Flashed CF Auto root first (CF-Auto-Root-hltecan-hlteub-smn900w8.tar) All went well and I got root access
Then I Flashed CWM ( n900-cwm-recovery-6.0.5.0-kk_L5.0(0812)) and all seemed to go well but .. I could not get into
recovery mode. when I pressed vol up + Home + power key at the same time it went directly to download modes second screen..( the one that is ready for you to hit start on odin.) ...
I was able to reboot and try several times with the same result.
I then went and got the CWM app and tried to enter form there to only get stuck on the download mode without being able to reset.
then I flashed the CWM again and was back to being able to reset but not being able to get into recovery mode.
I updated CWM recovery setup from the app to the latest 6.0.4. and then tried to back up my current rom ... this let to a boot loop that said something like ..... Kernel is not seandroid enforcing...
once again I was able to get into download mode and had to re flash CWM and get back to my original problem ... not being able to get into download mode

Can anyone help me figure this out

Thanks
