Default Restoring my note 3 help

So I have note3 I rooted with lingo everything was food good. Then I loaded safestrap and now I'm stuck at the samsung boot screen with the unlocked custom pad lock logo.

How do I get back to a working bootable phone and remove the padlock icon? I found this post but don't know if I'm on mj5 or not?

Need more info..are you just trying to get rid of padlock or is phone stuck on thst screen? If so did you try battery pull or booting into recovery via power button + home+volume up

You don't need to be on MJ5 to restore to it.

I had a similar problem yesterday. I accidentally deleted my os without replacing it cuz im a noob. I was stuck on the boot screen with the padlock.
I went into panic mode and upgraded to kitkat. It worked, but I wanted root, and safestrap. So I followed the method that you linked, and it successfully restored me to 4.3 with root access.
In short, it will work, but it will wipe your phone. And it didn't trip knox for me.
