I installed CWM on my SM-N900V and I didn't realize I can't do that because of the Verizon block on it. So installed Safestrap and all was good. But now I'm having several force closes after install Jelly Beans ROM B6. I've heard that doing a Factory Data Reset might fix this issue so I tried and I can't because I still have the CWM Recovery installed. Is there a way I can flash back to original in order to do a Factory Data Reset??

None of them are compatible with the Verizon model yet because Verizon has some type of security on it. That's why I'm using safestrap. I'm just trying to get the stock recovery back on there.

Sounds like you might have to Odin back to stock.

I'm going to try that and then re root my device. How do I go about finding a stock ROM for my device?

SamMobile | Everything for your Samsung Mobile under firmware. Type in your model and download after locating. I have found that most US versions are listed as "UNKOWN" under country. Not sure why that is. You will have to create an account to download the firmware for them however. Its always a good idea to have the stock firmware on hand while playing, and its starting to become the first thing I do once its available.

Safestrap is the only recovery you can use to flash roms on the Verizon note 3 due to having a locked bootloader.

I just did the same thing, and am really happy that I'm not the only one.. Have you been able to recover it back?

Thanks!
