Default [Q] Before i mess it up

Its a note 3 sm-n9005 running 4.3.

a few weeks ago i rooted and unlocked a friends phone but never got a chance to install a recovery,
my silly mistake tonight was ti install TWRP 4.4

I tried to install the openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.7-hlte.img.tar using odin 1.85 but all i get is "recovery is not seandroid enforcing" in a bootloop

By pulling out battery and turning on normally the phone still works fine.

Have an image of efs, phew

Any ideas on getting TWRP
My main goal is to get kitkat onto the phone, sammobile has kitkat, the phone was originally vodafone, can i install 3hutch onto phone with odin or do i have to stay with vodafone

cheers for any help

If you have Kitkat on the device (tried flashing) then you need the Kitkat TWRP - hence the BL - You cannot go back to 4.3 if you've attempted to flash KK
// LG G3 (D855) // Stock // Stock //

// HTC One (M8) // GPE Stock // Stock GPE//

// Nexus 7 (flo) // Android L // Stock//

S3(White) > M7(Red) > Note 3(Black) > Nexus 5(Black) > M8(Gunmetal)/LG G3 (Titan Grey)

Yep, debugging and unknown sources ticked.

I haven't installed kitkat yet just the twrp for kitkat, if I install kitkat will that give me the teamw recovery and can I install a O2 kitkat onto a Vodafone phone

Why not flash a normal ROM?
By that I mean, a ROM which is not touched by any service provider.
