Default [Q] [N7105] no OS installed / missing PIT Partition / ebay buyer is complaining!!

I have sold my n7105 on ebay running an actual Carbon ROM (4.4.x). (did a factory reset - booted into Android and checked if all personal user data was deleted and sold it that way)

The buyer is now complaining that the device is not starting and stucks at Note 2-device screen. The auction is a month ago and I got the device back yesterday...

In TWRP recovery I see that no OS is installed anymore. Even my microSD is not detected.

In PC Odin I tried to flash newest Samsung 4.3 stock ROM , but Odin tells that PIT partitions is missing!

What has happened to the device? Could an exhaustively discharged battery (and an electric shock) has led to a sudden death syndrome?

My only guess, did you run the partition remapper tool found in the N7105 thread?

He made a flash able zip to revert now, if that's the case.

Look man, I have Lost my phone Recently Like that
The problem as i thought first, Is in The EMMC card (Sudden death syndrome)
so I have do A JTAG JIG Unbrick for my NOTE 2
But I think that was a big ERROR, because JTAG has failled simply and the EMMC card is gone too...
So I'm now trying to change the Main board but it is too high price for me....
I thing that the loosing PIT Repartition means that the internal MEMORY is dead,
and I'm working hard to find the cause because so many members complain of this problem recently
