Default May have a brick

I have an att Note 2 and had recently installed the 4.3 bootloader and tried a couple of the new roms. They were to buggy so I did a full wipe including a data format and restored a Jedi backup. That was this morning. Just a few minutes ago I was attempting to boot into recovery and the phone won't progress past the Samsung logo. Any ideas or suggestions? THanks

Now there was a twrp write up about formatting data in the att gs4 dev section in the golden eye rom I believe. It stated how to fix this issue. Try googling twrp format data fix.

If you can get into download mode, you are not bricked.

Go here;

http://samsung-updates.com/latest-firmware/

Select your device. You can find exact model by removing the back. Model number is on a sticker behind the battery.

Download your firmware. Get into download mode. Load Odin. Tick PDA. Navigate to your firmware. Hit Start.

If it fails try downloading the file again as errors during file transfer are actually very common. Then flash in Odin once again.

Also, I want to add, Odin starts "Not Responding" almost immediately after beginning to flash. Don't panic, this is also very common. In fact it's never NOT happened to me when flashing stock firmware for my Note 2 and S3. Just let it do it's thing and a few seconds later it will recover from this and commence the flash.

I actually have an unbrick video on my Youtube channel for the S3. I need to do one for the Note 2 soon.

Oh, and one more thing, sometimes if you are having difficulty with a bootloop and you can't get into recovery or download, pull the battery and do the steps and then try again. I find many times I have to start from a completely powered off device.

Good luck and keep us posted. =-}
