I just got the N9005 Note 3 clone and I believe that I have bricked it. I installed CWM using MTK Tools (or so I thought) and downloaded what I believed to be the correct recovery for the phone. Now when it boots, it will stay on for about 10 seconds and reboot and will continue to do so if I let it. When I try to boot the phone into recovery mode instead it goes to a screen that says,
Select Boot Mode:
[VOLUME_UP to select. VOLUME_DOWN is OK.]
[Recovery. Mode]. <<==
I can use my volume up key but I can't select anything. No amount of pressing it, or holding it down, or pressing the other buttons selects either of them. I have to pull the battery to get the phone to do anything from there. Which leads me to believe that there was either an error in installing CWM, or it didn't install anything at all and corrupted something else pertinent to the Android system. It's almost as if Android recovery doesn't exist anymore like it was deleted. Is that even possible? I am at a total loss at what to do. Since I can't keep my phone booted for longer than 10 seconds at a time, I can't install CWM (again), which means that I can't factory reset my phone, install any kind of roms, wipe any kind of caches, nothing. Any help that you can provide I would be eternally grateful.
