Question Soft brick on stock

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with my completely stock Note 2. It doesn't boot (stuck on logo), but I can access recovery and download modes. Recovery mode comes up with a lot of error messages (can't mount /efs, /system, /data or /cache - no such file or directory). Factory reset doesn't help either.

I tried flashing stock in Odin but that fails after "NAND Write Start ... Complete(Write) operation failed." Flashing the .pit file with it fails with "Re-Partition operation failed." I also tried with different versions of Odin, different USB ports, and different computers. What can I try next?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Sounds like it is a little more than a soft brick.. Can you explain what you did before this happened..

Nothing special, it just rebooted and got stuck in a boot loop.

So no modding.. No flashing a New Rom..No Odin flashing back to stock or new modem..etc etc..

Bc it sounds like you have corrupted partitions.. I would try to see if you can use Heimedal and fix it by flashing each img seperatly.. If not you may need a JTAG service, if you eMMc is not borked..

No modding at all. I tried using Heimdall, but the .pit file failed again.
Code:
Uploading PIT
ERROR: Failed to confirm end of PIT file transfer!
ERROR: PIT upload failed!

Maybe a bad download.. You try to redownload it?
