Default [Q] Galaxy Note sgh-i317 stuck on boot


I am currently using some Samsung Galaxy Note II SGH-I317's and am trying to install a "dual persona image" onto the device. When doing this, the device has gone into screwy mode where i am unable to enter into recovery mode. The key sequence simply doesnt work. I am able to enter into ODIN (download) mode with no issues, but not into recovery.

When i try to install the base image back onto the device using ODIN i get a fail each time. Below is the output from ODIN:

<ID:0/011> Added!!

I would like to be able to return back to the factory default android, anyone with any bright ideas?

thanks in advance.
