Follow these steps:
1. If your Galaxy Note 3 is in a continuous boot cycle or suffers from it then remove the back cover and remove the battery. Leave the back cover off.
2. Remove the SD card.
3. Insert the battery and boot. Wait for the device to fully boot.
4. Go to Menu -> System Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Menu -> Advanced
5. Uncheck 'Always allow scanning'
6. Use back key until you're home.
7. Turn off the device.
8. Insert the SD card.
9. Attach the back cover.
10. Turn the device on.
To confirm, I tried booting the device three times with the 'Always allow scanning' Wi-Fi setting checked and it ended up in a continuous boot cycle. With the 'Always allow scanning' Wi-Fi setting unchecked the device boots fine every time."
I hope this may help many restless souls with boot-loop error (I was one of the restless souls till i found this golden remedy !!)
Exact same issue for me...and this method 'fixed' it.
No more bootloop when I manually restart. I was wondering if I got a defective Note 3.
(btw... I am using a 64 GB Sandisk SDcard, and I can confirm that rebooting WITHOUT the SDcard installed does NOT cause the bootloop)
It seems that the 'Always scanning...' option tries to access your SDcard during boot, with disastrous results.
Samsung needs to fix that.
