Please if anyone can help will apreciated

    1. You can't install a custom ROM or Recovery on the 900A or the 900V - the bootloader is locked, welded shut, they threw away the key, and there's an armed guard on it. (Seriously, though, you can't because you can't unlock the bootloader.)

    2. Try flashing a 900A (AT&T) ROM to it. [Rooted OR Stock] Update Procedure For Lolli… | AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 | XDA Forums is 5.0, the latest one issued. (You can get the stock or the rooted version - they're both set up as Odin-flashable files).

    3. If it fails NAND write at the end, it could be a hardware problem, but try flashing an AT&T ROM before worrying.
