Tried flashing SR KK Rom.. Was on AOKP 4.4.4 but was super buggy.

Flashed without issue, but stuck in red verizon bootup screen. I skipped flashing via ODIN the 4.3 firmware. I resorted back to stored TWRP backup, all good and usable.

To try and fix, i changed from TWRP to Philz per recommendation int he thread. Then reflashed. No go still. Tried to go back to TWRP backup, but Philz doesnt like it, and now i cant get to my phone via USB to reinstall TWRP.

I have AOKP still on my phnoe, so tried to reflash, but no dice.

I'm stuck with an unusable phone, and it looks like NO way to fix it.

I can access phone and flash via ODIN. But, i can not see phone via USB (in order to copy over ZIPs). I can mount my external SD, but then when i unmount, data goes away.

So screwed - need help so bad.

Rom that started it all:

Okay, used ADB push to get TWRP to the phone. That worked... Restored backup, but because of flashing the 4.3 firmware, lost root per TWRP

However, when i boot now, it just sits at "Samsung Galaxy Note II" screen. Doesnt go any further. EFf me.

EDIT: I see why.. backup restore failed. arghhhhhhhhhhhh

Stop trying to restore backups and wipe everything in twrp and then flash a clean a rom of your choice.
