Default [Q] Hard bricked Note 3

I'm afraid I made of hard bricked my note 3 ( yes I know this may be hard to do)... I tried installing clockwork mod and rooting my N900-Canadian Version. I am now a continuous loop in which my phone is trying to continuously go into boot mode not the actual startup screen. ODIN is not detecting it because it's not starting up. I cant put it into any other mode either. What do I do?

i think your device have been soft brick, just with boot loop or loop on recovery, if you use philz's recovery version, you can flash a zip file to resolve the end of this problem, i don't know what recovery version that you're using. Now, you must take your device return the time you begin with the tools like kdz tool, or flash tool on lg devices.

Thanks for the help.. It's was actually a soft brick then but now my device wont turn on. Can't enter recovery mode at all. It's a hard brick. I've seen a post where they explain how to perform an unbrick but I'm not sure if I need a specific debrick,img file for my N900w8 to mount on my micro SD card. Can you help me out?

Press and hold 2 key volume up and volume down, and plug in your device to your computer machine. if have "download mode" on screen your phone, your device can be cured and if not. If have, i will help you next steps.

Pretty sure that no Samsung phones made in the last couple of years gets into Download Mode like that any more.

OP: You might need a jtag service such as this:

Thanks a lot! I'd like to try doing it myself before I resort to sending it off somewhere. But if worst comes to worst I'll do that. There has got to be a way to fix this
