I had this exact experience, stuck at sbin. Then I found my Note 2 soft-bricked in the midde of the night,. I could not boot into system or recovery, only download mode. But the alternate restore offered by imnuts flashed perfectly for me. I was then able to unlock/root via Adam Outler's newer Galaxy Note 2 method (post exynos exploit update). Thanks to you, rdeckerr, for taking the time to chronicle your experience since it helped me see what I needed to do to flash to stock succesfully. I was then able to unlock/root, then flash CleanRom Inheritance. My Note 2 is even more amazing now. Donation sent to imnuts also.

So I have version VRALL4 and I did have my bootloader unlocked anyways long story so im stuck trying to unlock bootloader with new method and when I download certain files in the revised kit this is the message i get as an example Windows cannot open this file BAVBaseline.tar md5.gz WIndows wants to know what program I want to run to open it if any of you have tried the new method it isnt working for me so I may have to go back to stock and unlock the original method that Adam put out based on VRALJB so thanks for this valuable piece of work that I feel is super awesome to have thx!

Bootloader baseline package needs to be placed in the bootloader section of Odin 3.07. You need to open Odin and do that when casual tells you.

I have a verizon note 2 that is currently unlocked, rooted with twrp recovery using the original unlock method on VRALJB . Due to a wifi issue I can't solve, I am planning on going back to stock using Odin. I want to use the restore file that does not change the bootloader so I can keep it unlocked. I am assuming the Odin file will flash stock recovery. HOw do I flash an alternate recovery with an unlocked bootloader and stock recovery?

Default screwed up

Ok,
So I just rooted using the root66 method, then without realizing it bricked by trying to install cwm recovery. Now I'm trying to go back to stock using this tool so I can start over again and make it work but it keeps failing at sbin. I want to either know how to make this work or preferably how to flash ONLY the stock recovery so I can get past this verizon bull**** that isn't letting my phone boot. THen I could actually unlock bootloader. any help?

You need the alternate restore file. It's in imnuts thread... which were already in, got my threads mixed up.

Default Windows / Odin / Casual won't see BootMode

I am so frustrated. I had a VZW Note 2. It was running the JLB firmware. I successfully rooted it, but the home button was defective, so I had to have Verizon send replacement, which has VRLL4 firmware. I tried to restore this phone back to stock with odin 3.07 and the root66_VZW_stock_system.tar.md5 firmware. This didn't work, so I went into the stock recovery, and wiped my phone, and cache, multiple times. Now I can't get the phone to boot, it just goes back to stock recovery again and again. I can get into the Download Mode, but now my phone can't be seen by CASUAL-Revision289b.jar at all. I am running a Macbook Pro, with VMWare 4, usb is always set to be seen on the virtual machine. I never had trouble getting Windows 7 to see this phone before. Right now I have a $300 paperweight. I have downloaded the "alternate" bootloader, after much searching on this site, but it doesn';t do me any good if Windows won't recognize the phone. Tried reinstalling and uninstalling Samsung USB drivers mutiple times, tried rebooting virtual machine, nothing works. Any suggestions?

For casual your phone needs to be able to boot up. What you need now is Odin. Just follow section 1b of this guide and you'll be good

I thank you for your help. I assume that when yopu refer to section 1b, you are saying to install the VZW alternate driver, then use Odin to install the Root66 stock VRALJB 4.1.1 12/2/12 firmware? Because I thought that since I'm already on VRLL4, I need to install the Alternate" version of I605_VRALJB_Restore.tar.md5, (the one named with .xz at the end, which I assume I need to rename to .gz?) I do have ODIIN, and I was trying this until 3:30am, but I'm going to keep trying. Right now I uninstalled the Samsung drivers, installed the VZW alternate driver, and I will see what ODIN says...

Under section 1b, it says.... >>> Official VRALJB 4.1.1 12/9/12- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...t=2040264(This will wipe data and return your device to factory stock like the day you purchased the device. Unlocked and Locked devices may use this to return to Factory Stock conditions! Also, folks currently on the latest L4 OTA ONLY use the alternate restore file as it does not contain a bootloader!)..... <<<< So does this mean I 'should" use the I605_VRALJB_Restore.tar.md5.xz file (the alternate file?), ?
