[Q] Need Help Unbricking Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317

I ran into a problem when I tried to root my phone. I had experience rooting before with a Samsung tablet so I was surprised with this problem.

Phone Info:

AT&T Galaxy Note 2 SGH-I317 OTA updated to Android 4.4 before attempting the root


Things didn't go as planned and got hung up during rooting process... Now the phone is stuck with the message about Firmware update
interrupted. I'm not entirely sure how to proceed next and I was hoping to receive some advice from other users who are more experienced
in this area.

I remember reading somewhere that once a device has KitKat 4.4 installed.. you can't use a previous version to restore or something like that.

I hope to have someone respond back to me soon... and please, if you could, give me detailed/step-by-step instructions or advice so I can understand what you mean.. since I'm not an expert in this particular area.

Remember, before the soft-bricking, my phone was running Android 4.4 that was recently installed by AT&T.... so I need a method what works with that.

Yes, I am still able to get into Download Mode...

Thanks for the quick reply
Thanks for the recommendation... However, I did come across that posting but it didn't seem to apply to my particular problem.. I'm not running 4.3, but Android 4.4 on my phone... One thing I'm not sure about is... I tried flashing the original 4.1.2 to my phone (followed instructions from another site on resolving soft bricks) and that process failed... I'm not sure if I need to completely start all over with my phone or if 4.4 is still installed...

Talking Phone Is Working Now
I just wanted to thank you for the information you supplied to me. I followed the instructions exactly... after it PASSED in Odin, it did do the hang at the Samsung logo... and I was able to get back into Recovery Mode and do the Factory Reset and Reboot. I'm glad I came here.. I learned something new..

Once again... thank you
