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?
