[Q] Odin fails on SCH-i605 with CF-Auto-Root
Looks like I'm running into a brick wall trying to root this damn phone. first I soft bricked I but thankfully recovered but now after trying to root unlock using Casual and getting errors with generic usb drivers while in download mode I figured I'd be happy enough with just a root but ran into issues there as well. I'm currently running android 4.3 and every time I run Odin I get the following. I have tried v3.09. 3.07 and 1.87 and get the exact same error. I never had this much trouble rooting and unlocking my AT&T note 2 but Verizon is a nightmare. BTW I tried about 6 different versions of Casual and none worked. All of them take me to the recovery download screen and error out due to various reasons. In any case If anyone can guide me to get my I605 rooted, I would greatly appreciate it. On a side note could I downgrade to root66 rom and get rooted that way or would that brick my device? After that can I install custom roms? I don't have warranty any more and don't care about that. Just want root and custom roms and maybe an unlock
