Hey guys!
So, I installed Dr. Ketan's Custom ROM V8 on my brother's Note II (N7100) sometime back. It was earlier on roooted stock 4.1.2, so naturally, it had no WiFi on V8. Since it wasn't required at that point, I did not care about fixing it, but now WiFi as well as Hotspot were needed. So I flashed the KitKat Bootloader using Odin as per the instructions on the ROM thread, and it rebooted and was stuck on the Samsung bootlogo. It went into download mode but no recovery was there. I tried flashing stock recovery as per the instructions on the thread but it was persistently stuck on the bootlogo. I've also tried flashing the MJ5 Bootloader and WiFi fix from here, but it failed on Odin. Then I flashed TWRP, and CWM too but all in vain So, basically it is bricked(?)
I do not have recovery access to reflash the ROM. It was working perfectly before that (sans the WiFi) but I don't know what went wrong. How do you guys think can I get it back to working normally?
I know this type of questions have already been asked on this forum and I have read all those threads. But no method seems to work.
So I'd request for your help. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks.

Maybe nobody is replying because we're out of ideas. Did you tried to restore firmware with KIES. There was an option there if I recall correctly.

Your best bet is flashing official stock ROM 4.4.2 ( I think FNE1 ) is latest for India via Odin and hopefully it resolves the issue

Thanks! Does that method work even when the phone is dead?

Thanks! Surely will try that. I was hoping for a solution that did not involves wipe of data but getting the phone back working is more important than the data.
