Default [Q] Note 3 wont reboot successfully after flashing CWM recovery

So i decided to flash CWM recovery on my Note 3 via CWM (I had phillz recovery installed already), now the phone just wont boot up. It keeps saying Recovery Booting above the Note 3 logo for 2 seconds, then the phone restarts again showing the same message. 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 cannot. I have the battery of the phone out right now. As soon as i put the battery in the phone, it tries to reboot into recovery without me even pressing the power button. Then it again shuts off and tries to restart every 2-3 seconds.

Just some additional info, I flashed CWM recovery through Rom Manager. After flashing it, it asked to reboot the phone. As soon as the phone rebooted, i started having this issue.

I'm in a similar situation. I used to be able to use the phone controls (power-home-Vol Up) to be able to go into recovery mode, but even that has stopped functioning. The only way to get the phone to boot normally after that is to pull battery, put the phone in download mode and then cancel download mode to boot up normally.

I think the only way to get your phone into download mode now would be
to get a USB Jig from eBay or some online store.


They are under $5 bucks shipped.
Once you have that you would simply remove the battery from your
phone and then plug in the Jig before putting the battery back in.


The usb Jig is basically meant to be used for those
phones which will not go into download mode any
other way.


I have a Jig and as soon as it's plugged into the phone when the phone
is powered down it goes into download mode within 2-3 seconds.


Soon as its in download mode you can remove the jig and start a
clean Odin flash of the official stock firmware for your phone.


Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

Thanks for that USB Jig suggestion. I guess that is my last hope.

Per suggestion from Misterjunky, I've now been successful in installing the Stock Tmobile 4.4.2 NB4 formware that I downloaded from sammobile. I used Odin 1.85 to install that on the Note 3. So far, the phone looks functional again.

So pressing power, vol down and menu doesn't get you into download? Have you tried holding them for at least 30 seconds?
