    OK so I got into rooting and flashing roms a few months ago and I can honestly say it does become an obsession thus it takes up a lot of time lol

    I have now flashed KitKat 4.4.2 on my note 3 works just fine and managed to get it rooted also. It didn't have stock or custom recovery the latter being obvious you would need one to fit the new build, however one would expect it to have stock but no which was odd.

    So me not thinking I installed mobile Odin a great utility but due to my lack of thought and impatience I flashed a custom ROM yup duh I didn't have a recovery lol

    So my Note 3 is soft bricked but thankfully I think installing the custom recovery via PC odin will cure and
    save me from flashing the 4.4.2 firmware again and starting from scratch.

    So lesson/advice don't get into flashing or just be more patient lol is one lesson I have learned lol

    Just thought I would share my recent experience lol

    And possibly a laugh :-P

    Yes thankfully wouldn't part with my Nexus lol

    Will get my Note 3 operational again though and then get it to the way I want it and then I am going to call an end to my flashing ROM days lol

    If you are feeling adventurous, install MultiROM to the Nexus 5, it is the Mecca of flashing. And you shouldn't have to worry since it's nearly impossible to brick a Nexus.

    Update I reflashed the KitKat 4.4.2 firmware and thankfully it restored my previous settings. I then had to root again and finally as I was previously flashing the wrong recovery I got the new one specifically for android and it worked. Flashed a new ROM X-Note 8 and job done.

    So I now have My note 3 on 4.4.2 running X-Note 8.

    Wow if I was more patient I wouldn't of soft bricked a few times, but wey hey got there in the end lol

    And I might root the nexus and opt for multirom then again maybe not lol
