[Q] Someone Please Stop me before I hurt myPhone!!!
Hello. Hopefully, my title was just interesting enough to draw the eye of someone who know much more than I about his custom ROM stuff. Please understand that I am sure that this issue and probably exact question has been asked countless times by the same dummy, like myself, with just enough knowledge to be dangerous. SO...forgive me...I've spent countless hours reading and trying to find an answer on my own but everyone seems to have a slightly different problem, or, have utilized different methods of creating their issue.I'll be brief and ask for someone to please spare a little time to help me resolve this. THank you
Bottom line is that I tried to flash 4.4.2 to my NoteII(sgh-t889). I booted into recovery and did something stupid. I think I loaded the .zip files from the SD card instead of through my PC. Anywho, the phone is now bootlooped with the Cyanogen logo and I can only access ODIN to try and flash a new and proper firmware version. I wiped dalvik and did a factory reset before flashing the new ROM bu I don't think that is relevant because I am quite sure that I didn't install properly.
I have looked EVERYWHERE for a downloadable .TAR file to flash with the stock firmware(4.1.2) ...even here(hotfile.com has apparently shut down and all links are a bust) and I am not even sure if that will fix the problem
If anyone is willing to take the time to guide me through the steps to reinstall the stock firmware, point me to alid links for necessary files, and get this thing up and running again, i'll promise to give up on mod'ing my device and just enjoy the hotspot use that I got from rooting the phone in the first place.
BTW...I made a backup using clockwork but I cannot access it.
THanks Again for reading and the anticipated responses. I am sure this is a breeze for most of you but for those of us trying for the first time and learning by internet, this can be a little confusing due to so many differing methods/software. Thanks again.
