Ok, So I just bought the Tmo Note 3 and was looking to root it
I went on youtube and found the Auto-root method
I downloaded the auto-root files, open Odin, put the CF-Auto root.tar.md5 in the PDA section of Odin and clicked start.
It's press and hold the the power button the press on home;)
Whatever color you would like, Menu> Settings> CM Settings> User Interface> Status Bar> Clock Color.
Edit: From the user interface select notification colors and set them to whatever you desire, besides black.
Just flashed, excellently smooth, love the notification bar icons!! Thank you much!!:D
Just had this happen to me also. I just downloaded philz recovery .tar and flashed through odin. I still cant get a custom recovery but it got me out of my bootloop and back into my system
