Hello, I am having problems with rooting my galaxy note 3 model SM-N900R4 on US cellular. I followed the instructions on true-android.blogspot.com

My problem comes when It gets stuck after the root and stays to the title screen "Samsung Galaxy Note 3". There will be the Seandroid error In the top left corner too. I restart the phone by going to download mode and selecting cancel to reboot the phone. Everything passed in Odin 3.07 and i went to root checker after the reboot and saw that I'm not rooted. Please help, I'm on android 4.3 Stock.

You probably used the one for 4.4.

Download this one and flash through odin again.

This article used SM-N9005 but for 4.4 to root so I'm guessing the one for 4.3 will be safe to use as well. I have SM-N900W8 and works on mine and also for a Tmobile N3.

It actually restarted this time but root Checker still says I have no root access.

Do you have custom recovery installed?

Not necessarily but if you had one installed, you can just flash supersu to gain root.

I'm eager to root my 4.3/mje note3 but my last phone was an s3 rooted through twrp. I (a noob) have forgotten how to use Odin and install custom roms through any other method. Would some patient soul please point me to the process?
It's probably a sticky here some where. Thanks!

Is there anyway to get this custom recovery without root?
