    Recovery Boot Loop Problem

    Had a problem. Hope someone with experience can give me a few answers.
    Nave new t-mobile Note 3, SM-N900T. Stock 4.4.2 KitKat Touchwiz rooted.
    Rooted to enable SDFix to use SD card as I want to use it.
    Everything great! No problems.
    Thought it would be wise to have a Nanoid backup.
    Opened Rom Manager and made One change in prefrences. I set it for external SD card storage. (mistake?)
    The installation of CWM flashed from 0 to 100% and said it was sussessful.
    Went to 'Backup current Rom' in Rom manager, started it and it started to reboot. Shut down and restarted in a 'Recovery' boot loop??
    No matter what I did, Tried holding power, up volume and home button, nothing. Boot loop continued. Removed battery, waited, as soon as I re-installed battery it instantly went back into recovery boot loop.
    I don't know what I did, I kept removing battery and trying again and again and all of a sudden, it booted up back to KitKat and now everything is working great again. No problem on any standard reboot.
    What happened? I have used this same set up on my S3 and never had a problem.
    I would like to backup the current setup for any future problems. But now, I'm afraid to even try.
    I removed Rom Manager and re-installed. Made sure that the storage location was reset to internal and it should be OK??
    What did I do when I got out of the Recovery boot loop??
    afraid to try again. Don't want the boot loop again.

    Update: Tried again. Same problem. Reboot over and over. No response from holding power button.
    It says: Recovery booting
    Recovery is not seandroid enforcing
    Set warranty bit:recovery
    I found out that if I remove battery, wait for several minutes, it 'usually' doesn't restart automatically. Sometimes I have to do it several times.
    Then I can hold the volume down, home and power button and boot into Download mode. Then all I have to do is cancel and it boots up normally.
    Everything I've read on boot loops always say 'boot into recovery'. I only wish I could. That's the boot loop.
    Any idea how what's wrong?

    Update: Fixed problem by installing TWRP using Odin. Backed up to ext. SD card and rebooted to OS.
    Problem solved.

    Do it through Odin/Download mode, or boot into the bootloader instead and use fastboot. Be sure to verify your MD5s first, as always.

    Yes i am new and was messing around with my old Note 3 thinking i could make it better. It is rooted and had a custom rom on it and i.was gonna upgrade it to Marshmallow woth resurection remix. Downloaded all files copied to sd card; installed CWM and opened it up thinking i was gonna make a backup...ha! Pressed wrong i guess anyway now i am having this same issue. I have Odin on my computer how do I get my phone out of the loop long enough to do anything??? Help and please make it simple...in layman's terms as i am a novice and i apparently don't know what doing!!! Thanks.
