But eMMc still affected by the bug

Type: VTU00M

FwRev: 0xf1

Note-II Sudden Death?
Yes. Insane chip.

What can I do ???

Your eMMC will always be affected.
The thing is Samsung has a workaround in latest releases to "fix" that by avoiding eMMC to brick.

Just bought N7100 a week ago and it came with 4.1.2 .

eMMC chip
Type: VTU00M
FwRev: 0xf1

Note-II Sudden Death?
YES. Insane chip.

Got root only, nothing strange happens for now.

What do you guys suggest, if I take it to service will they replace the board with safe one or do I have to wait for my chip to fry?

I don't think they will replace your board if it's working just fine. You may need to wait for the problems to happen.

if the the affected n7100 units have already been updated to 4.1.2 then is it safe to root and install custom roms?

May I ask you to do a little test on your phone?

Type *#12580*369# into the dialer. This will give your information on hardware and software your phone is running. This is a safe test as detailed here.....Supported USSD codes

What I am trying to do is find a test I can do on the Note 2 before I buy one. I posted earlier but got no replies. Phones I have tried locally have HW Rev 1.3 which I am thinking is a later version of the motherboard and should not have the affected chip. If yours has HW Rev 1.1 and has the affected chip maybe this is a test that can be done to find out if the phone is safe before you buy it. I am of course assuming that the display models I am testing are the same as the stock being sold.

Any comments on the above are welcome as I am a noob to this phone and could be completely mistaken about this.

Actually I have a board with rev 1.3 that has the affected chip.

Thanks for replying.

Can you confirm that your emmc is VTU00M 0xf1 and not 0xf7 ?

I really want to buy a Note 2 but can't bring myself to spend so much on what may be a flawed device.

Think my $569 note ii from DailySteals in December just got hit.

Phone was working fine, was sitting on my desk. Came back and screen was dark and would not power on. OK, annoying, but thought it was a random crash (I'm completely stock, unrooted, and its happened a handful of times). Would not power back up, so did the whole pull battery and try again, still nothing. Notice when I plug it in it doesn't charge -- the red light doesn't come on. And when I press the power button it flashes red light.

All symptoms of SDS. I'll let it charge overnight and maybe I'll get lucky, but I took the gamble on NOT getting the SquareTrade warranty and now I'm hosed. I bought my Galaxy Nexus international grey market last time, no problems so I skipped the warranty ... sucks! I really like the Note II but not sure if I like paying for it twice and having to likely pay a premium to get an 'official' warranty.
