(THIS WILL VOIDE WARRENTY,I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR IF YOUR DEVICE BRICKED)

How to do root:

NOTE 1- MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE FILE FOR YOU CORRECT ROOT FILES, THE FILES ARE DIFFERENT FOR 4.4.2 AND DIFFERENT FOR 5.0

NOTE 2- IF YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO FLASH A ROM THEN NO NEED TO ROOT YOUR DEVICE, SKIP THIS AND GO TO HOW TO INSTALL CUSTOM RECOVERY!

Step 1)Get the CF root file compatabile to your vairant from here.. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2466423

Step 2) Turn OFF your mobile and go to Download Mode by pressing and holding the Volume Down + Home Buttons together for few seconds followed by Power button then proceed with volume up.

Step 3) Now open ODIN on your PC and connect your Galaxy Note 3 to your computer.

Step 4) Once your phone is successfully connected to your PC, the ID:COM box on ODIN will turn blue (or yellow) and will show the COM port number.

Step 5) Click on pda in odin (if odin 3.09 choose AP) and choose the ".tar" file.

Step 6) Tick "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" options and make sure that "Re-Partition" is unchecked
!!!!DO NOT CHECK "Nand Erase All" IN ANY WAY!!!!

Step 7) Click on Start button in ODIN window to start the flashing process. The process will take few minutes to complete.

DO NOT UNPLUG USB CABLE WHILE EXECUTING THE PROCESS, YOU MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE!

Step 8) When the installation is completed, you read a "Reset " then a "Pass". your phone will restart

as we know, phone will flash the rec failed if you select reboot button directly while flash the TWRP.rar though ODIN .
mostly rebooting into rec is still officials,.
so somebody flash it no select reboot , in that way ,we can flashed it successly by manually reboot after a few secs or more than ten secs,
i don't know why but it can be completed.
after that, we can flash su.zip as same as a rom.

i do not know what is your problem ,
forgiving my poor English and i try to describe what I mean clear。

i ll tell you what i know : )
PS:in china ,we use the CWM rec more time than TWRP

Yep!
I just remembered something a few minutes ago.
the twrp can flashed success just in android 4.4 or 4.4's BL .

Forgive me waste your time.
my previous words without trial,:-[

if you want to try the cwm rec ,please tell me .
I can think of a way to share with you, that would be a bit different.
