So first off I have the SM-N900V (Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Verizon) [hltevzw]
Currently following the instructions over on the CyanogenMod website, and have ran into a problem while trying to flash the PhilZ Touch Recovery. I have tried to flash with Odin-on almost every version-and have failed every time. So I took the path with Heimdall, and got the farthest. This was the process I took:
1) Power off device and boot into download mode (Volume down + Home + Power).
2) Plug in device and open command window in folder location (Where the recover.img is).
3) Run this command: heimdall flash --recovery recovery.img --no-reboot
4) This is the outcome:

Initializing connection...
Detecting device...
Claiming interface...
Setting up interface...

Initializing protocol...
Protocol initialization successful.

Beginning session...

Some devices may take up to 2 minutes to respond.
Please be patient!

Session begun.

Downloading device's PIT file...
ERROR: Failed to send request to end PIT file transfer!
ERROR: Failed to download PIT file!
Ending session...

1) Does the phone need to be rooted?
2) Any reason why it is failing the send a request?
Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Firstly, the Verizon model is bootloader locked and there is no unlock. You cannot use custom recoveries or kernels. Secondly, heimdall doesn't work if you're on 4.4 or higher for some reason.
