Stock at Logo is only the result from unwriteable data partition.

Format data didn't also work in cwm

so maybe we should use JIG and try to flash the stock rom we have received when we bought the phone and use the warranty.

jig won't help. jtag probably can help, but there is no confirmation about that.
flashing stock ROM also won't help - if U facing same issue, data partition can't be flashed

This is what Odin reports:

This seems like a fantastic guide, but my problem is that I can't get into download mode. The jig I have doesn't work anymore since upgrading to ICS, and my SGS2 was the faulty type that needed the jig to get into download mode

For me, Jig work also with ICS (no counter reset, but download work.

Tryed put phone off - plugin Jig - press power.

If it didn't do anything seems like death

Then unfortunately death it is... From the very start, I could never use that button shortcut to enable recovery/download mode but had to use the jig, and from what I read on some forum, there was a batch or two from Samsung that had this.

Gokhanmoral seems to acknowledge that there is a problem, this is what he says on his site www.gokhanmoral.com:

SiyahKernel v3.1rc6

If you are using rc6 and camera app doesn’t work install v3.1 immediately without wiping any data or installing anything else.


We should find an expert who knows how to format the internal SD card. I hope, there is some expert on this wonderfull forum.
came from Samsung Galaxy SII I9100
now Samsung Galaxy Note II grey GT-N7100 (Sotmax rom Android 4.3, V14 stable HD)

1. so you guys want to say that if i flashed ics rom in the past, the jig will not reset the counter and there is no way to revive my warranty?

2. is there any way to get to the partition and backup data that is on the internal sdcard?
