Default [Q] N9005 Bootloop using Kn0x0ut

Hi guys

I wanted to try X-Note on my Note 3 which was Stock rooted MJ7.

So first I used kn0x0ut to do a backup of System, Data and EFS, then went ahead and installed X-Note, did the usual data/cache/dalvik wipes which the script does.

That didn't go too well, for some reason I got a boot loop, not like I have now, but where it wouldn't even get to the OOB wizard.

So I decided to just restore the backup I made, which also didn't appear to go very well because now I have a phone which is acting very strangely.

After the restore screwed up, I used ODIN to restore my original MJ1 ROM. Previously, I had gone from Stock MJ1 to Rooted MJ1 with RDLV, then updated to MJ7 via Mobile Odin Pro.

Basically what's happening now, is it will boot up to the OOB wizard, then I'll get a message that says "Process system has stopped responding", usually followed by "Samsung keyboard has closed".

Wifi doesn't work, it says I don't have any sim card installed and my baseband is "unknown". I've only got about 20 seconds to look around before it will reboot. Most apps that I try to open like the dialler just FC as soon as they open.

What I've done so far (which I REALLY wanted to avoid) is installed TWRP so I could at least flash something else, not via ODIN or Kn0x0ut (which I will NOT be using again!). I managed to restore the EFS using dd but it didn't appear to do anything. I've also tried this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2507403 - that didn't help either.

I'm pretty stuck now, since I have a voided warranty and no usable phone....

Any help would be great, I really need to get this thing working again!

Your fault was to try to flash mj1, even if u had mj7 before.

Try to flash mj7 or mk2 with odin and you shd be fine.

I had that brainwave myself this morning.

I guess mj7 upgrades the efs in some way that's incompatible with mj1?

I did try xnote mk2 and got the same issue, but that's obviously not stock, so I'll get mj7 and mk2 stock downloaded and give it a go.

Cheers!

With our powers combined! It worked mate

Cheers! Where's the thanks button? Maybe it doesn't show cause this is like my third post ever...

I'm guessing then that the device needs to be on the same level as any custom rom that I want to install, and if I want to upgrade to a higher level I will need to flash stock first?
