    Title pretty much says it all. I am running hyperdrive on my Note 3, installed shortly after upgrading to kit Kat. I did a titanium backup restore of a bunch of stuff from my previous firmware and I think I made some poor choices because apps which used to give me no trouble crash frequently now, my keyboard will not stop switching back to the Samsung default, Lightflow gives me incorrect notifications, etc. So I want to just start from scratch.

    Can I do a reset within hyperdrive and sufficiently zero out everything and start fresh, or do I need to just entirely reinstall 4.4.2? Also, i'm running 3.4.0 kernel and NC4 baseband, so if either of those are dumb please let me know too. I'm still learning all of the android stuff and it's hard to keep current with it at the same time.

    Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this.

    Here is what I would do: reflash the ROM. Skip your Titanium Backup stuff and run with the kernel that came packaged with the ROM. Run that for a few days. Custom ROM kernels are usually better than stock anyway.

    Factory reset then re-install Apps that are /data (user or Play Store installed Apps) not /system Apps. Also, you may want to install Apps without data unless you really need that data to be restored.

    Let us know how it goes.

    So I tried to reinstall the rom but couldn't. Safestrap keeps freezing when I try and install Hyperdrive basically as soon as it starts (right after a copyright line shows up, if I remember correctly). I unfortunately decided to format the working rom so now I'm just running stock and trying to figure stuff out. I am thinking about just firing up Odin and burning everything to the ground to start again. Is NC2 still the firmware version of choice? I'm on Verizon.

    Also, "story" was supposed to be "factory" but I think you guys got that.

    Followup question so I can be less annoying in the future: Is there a thread or website somewhere that lists the current rootable firmware/basebands/whatever? Every time I do this I just have to search the forums and it's never quite clear if what I've found is the most recent information unless it happened to be posted in the last couple of days.

    I'm pretty new to android. I'm used to iOS where everyone is in the same boat and it's easy to tell just how screwed you are.
