Evening all ,

Hopefully someone here can help , Im somewhat of a newbie to this but was currently running Xnote Rom on 4.3 , I tried to upgrade to N9005XXUGNG1 following steps read on a well known website.

I received a "invalid ext4 image" error from odin and now stuck in a soft brick state where i can only access download mode. I am currently trying to get out of this back to a stock phone. I live in the UK and am on EE 4G.

Thanks in advance

Sometimes I get the android man and others I get a phone with a warning symbol and a pc saying " Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again".
