I tried to root my sm-n900 note 3 and followed all the instructions to the letter on the forum and when I tried to root through odin, it says writing cache.img and I wait for a few minutes then it says FAIL, I unplugged then restarted my phone and it says "FIRMWARE UPGRADE ENCOUNTERED AN ISSUE, PLEASE SELECT RECOVERY MODE IN KIES AND TRY AGAIN" and now kies doesnt recognize my device anymore, So what can I do now? I really want to root but damn samsung wont let me!

I see this in odin btw

Sorry I could not tag your question due to failure with the mobile app. For starters I did not worry about using the auto-root option since I am not worried about tripping Knox counter. I prefer to flash twrp or cwm via Odin and then flash the current version of supersu from the recovery or if you are looking to install a custom Rom you can just flash it instead. Nothing against CF auto-root but this has always worked for me.
