If you ever need to return your Note 3 for warranty, we highly suggest to use ODIN and stock firmware to fully unroot your Note 3.
However, if you just want to run a stock ROM with root, we suggest you to install rooted stock ROMs using CWM or TWRP recovery instead as this will let you keep your CWM/TWRP recovery and also much easier to do.
Here’s a list of rooted stock ROMs currently available you can use CWM/TWRP recovery to install:

What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
How to Install Custom ROMs
First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.
Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!
