Aloha!

I am trying to fix a friend's phone, what he got is when turning on the note 2 its stuck on the boot screen.
First thing I tried is factory reset, but when going to recovery mode it says can't mount /efs. Same thing happens when trying to factory reset.

If there is any fix for it, I'd love to hear!

If not, can someone please guide me on how to install blank and new bl+kernel+rom?

I tried following this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2060389
1) When I try to flash the BL through odin - it fails:

<ID:0/012> Added!!
<ID:0/012> Odin v.3 engine (ID:12)..
<ID:0/012> File analysis..
<ID:0/012> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/012> Can't open the serial(COM) port.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

2) I didn't find a link for the kernel installation file - just the source files

3) I didn't find a link for the rom file which is recognized by odin - tar or md5 etc


Feel free to treat me like a newbie, and please leave detailed info...

I flashed my fair share of roms on my old S2, so if anything I wrote is outdated (still using ODIN?) please correct me

Thanks!
Alex

The instructions there helped me with my efs problem. Was able to get the Note 2 back up and running but still having a few glitches.

Well I looked in the link you gave but didn't find it much helpful, either I tried flashing CWM but now it won't go to recovery mode at all.
When I just turn on the phone its stuck on the "Samsung" screen.
When I go to recovery its stuck on the Galaxy Note II screen.
And download mode works fine.

I think I first need to flash a new kernel and rom, anyone can provide me with links to kernel and a rom that works with it and both flashable by odin?
All the threads in the development section have .zip files and those not flashable by odin.

thanks
