after I had succesfully rooted my phone, I wanted to install a custom rom.
I am sure I did something wrong ofcource otherwise I wouldn't be here.

#1 Battery in
#2 power on
#3 vibrate
#4 screen on RECOVERY BOOTING
Recovery is NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING
Set Warrenty Bit : recovery

Samsung
GALAXY Note3
SM-N9005

#5 screen off--> reboot -->goto #3

how to brake in the loop so I can use odin ( or whatever ) to install (at least) a normal boot again?

You installed a 4.3 recovery on a 4.4 phone.

Most likely you downloaded the TWRP on the main page and did not download the latest 4.4 compatible one.

Please flash this in Download Mode: http://techerrata.com/bigbiff/hlte-recovery.img.tar

To get into Download Mode, remove the battery, wait a few minutes then put it back, Hold the Download Mode Combination then it would boot directly into Download Mode.

TWRP

during twrp it told me, there was a newer one. 2.x.x.9
so stupid me, if I had sticked to the plan, nothing would happend.
I used twrp b4 some days ago, for my samsung note 10.1 (2014) without trubbles,
I guess, I overread something

but I'm happy it is all fixed now.
thx for show ur interest

greetz, fred

Solution To Loop SM-N900P

I am new to XDA and have only been with android for 6 months but i figure this will help new comers to this issue. Power+Volume Down+Home at the same time to enter download mode. Flash CWM via ODIN. This should work to fix the loop. I found out the hard way but it only took me an hour. I am not sure if this will work if you have not already rooted your phone but it should (since this is the major step in rooting). I believe i deleted my CWM file (accidentally) when i was trying to clear space for my recovery with ROM Manager. Be sure to download the Samsung drivers if you had not already done so during the rooting process.

Hope this helps.

Based on my experience, using rom manager to flash recovery always results in a problem. I suggest you use odin to flash this in download mode.

Btw, 4.4.2 is Kitkat :D

should I root my phone first using cf-root. Then flash the cwm recovery. What happens if I get stuck in a bootloop after flashing the recovery

The way I did this is, first install the cwm recovery then flash cf-root after. You can always use odin to flash back the original firmware.

so there is nothing else I have to do before flashing the recovery?
what boxes should be checkmarked in odin

Just make sure reactivation lock is off.

When you first start odin, F.Reset Time and Auto Reboot are ticked off so let them be and make sure only those are checked and nothing else.

You probably know this but just to make sure, load the recovery on the AP slot before hitting start.
