Help changing ROM on Samsung Note 3 SM-N900V from Verizon


AC Question

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900V from Verizon and I have been trying to change it to the DarkLord ROM that is a Modded Mix between Note 7 & Edge version.

I at first had a problems rooting the phone with Odin (it always failed) so I search and search and found a tool called ArabicTool which took care of it, after that I tried adding TWRP so i could change the ROM but everytime I added the recovery tool I got the message saying that the software is not authorized by Verizon.

I would like to know if anyone has a way to change the ROM on a SM-N900V, I have seem some guides that claim the process works with the SM-N900V but every time I try to do them I get the message of software not authorized when I install the recovery app TWRP and then I have to do an emergency restore in Kies3.

Please help anyone

You can't change the ROM completely on Samsung Verizon or AT&T phones, but you can install the Verizon (or AT&T for AT&T phones) version of Safestrap.
