So my phone is bricked (N7100), trying to do a hard reset through a recovery menu (currently using twrp), but I cant boot my phone or boot into recovery, only odin/download mode, trying to flash another recovery menu (philz) but whenever i try to flash it through odin, I get "Fail".

Press and hold Power button+Volume Down+ Home Button at the same time till you see the bootloader screen.
Then press Volume Up button.
On the screen if you see something "KNOX Warranty flag" or something like that, that means you have knoxed bootloader.
If you don't see it, it's fine, flash whatever rom you want.
