Default [Q] Problem rooting SM-N9005

For two days i have been struggling to root my new Orange Romania N9005.
First of all I downloaded CF Auto Root and Odin 3.09. Followed the steps exactly (i'm not new to rooting) ,Uninstalled Kies and downloaded the latest drivers only, and every single time I try to root it Odin gives the following error:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/005> Added!!
<ID:0/005> Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
<ID:0/005> File analysis..
<ID:0/005> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/005> Initialzation..
<ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/005> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/005> SingleDownload.
<ID:0/005> recovery.img
<ID:0/005> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/005> FAIL! (Auth)
<ID:0/005>
<ID:0/005> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)


On the screen of the note 3 the following error in red : SECURE CHECK FAIL : recovery
I have since tried every single version of ODIN , tried flashing pre-rooted roms only to get my device soft bricked(Fails right at the very end, and then I restored via kies )
,I have tried to change usb ports to no avail, even tried to root it on 4 different laptops.Tried with different cables, with usb debugging on and off, NOTHING WORKS!!!
Please help me I am thinking of setting it on fire!!!

tried with old kies and kies 3 as well.Also tried older drivers.
Do i have a locked BootLoader?This shouldnt be the case as it is an n9005.
Any way to check if bootloader is locked and if so any way to unlock it for the international version?
Thanks!

On the settings page under security..make sure you have reactivation lock uncheck...
Than try again..that's usually the problem

I had the same issue while rooting my Galaxy S4,tried on every other laptop,different ports,cables and more but then I realized I was using the wrong file.

Yes,the international version comes with Bootloader unlocked so your bootloader is fine.Are you able to boot your phone into Download mode?I am sure u cant boot into Recovery mode,can you?

First go back and check your phone's model no and use the proper file and try again!I will help you,dont worry!

I deactivated the reactivation lock but still the same problem.I have Downloaded the CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar file several times same thing every time.My last chance is doing a full wipe of the system and then trying again.I hope orange Romania CSC does't have some sort of security block.
Frustrating thing is the phone is fully functional so i cannot ask for a replacement.And even after the dozens of failed flash attempts it still reads 0x0.

YES!!!Finally.A full wipe did it.!Thank you for your interest in helping me.
