I have a verizon Note 2 that I Rooted with one touch application installed on the device. Everything has been working fine for months until I flashed updated Clockwork Mod Recovery today.
The phone would not boot with warning that “System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone.”
After pulling out the battery and holding rocker up, power, and home button I get to a green robot screen with message "downloading...do not turn off target !!"
The screen wont go beyond this.
What do I need to do to get my device functioning again.
No need to panic! Follow these steps from
[GUIDE][VZW Edition]How to Root/Rom/Return to Stock the VZW Galaxy Note II!
thread and you should be good to go!
Step 1: Download and install Odin- http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1340993443
Step 2: Download one of these stock images and pit file to a windows based pc. If Odin does not recognize the file then extract it with a program such as 7zip.
Official VRAMC3 4.1.2 5/5/13- http://www.hotfile.com/dl/224874128/...3_VZW.zip.html
This is the latest firmware image that will return your device to factory stock and locked conditions.
Official VRALJB 4.1.1 12/9/12- http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=9390214368362234374
This will wipe data and return your device to factory stock out of the box conditions. This file can only be used on devices that never took the VRALL4 or VRAMC3 OTA update. If this file is flashed on a updated device, Odin will fail @ sboot.bin.
Root66 stock VRALJB 4.1.1 12/2/12- http://androidfilehost.com/?fid=9390210501348163619
This is our very first fully functional rooted Odin image.. Thanks MrRobinson!! This file does not wipe data, lock bootloader, or replace recovery. Its simply a easy way for folks who want to flash back to rooted stock as a stepping stone to another rom.
Step 3: Power device off, hold the volume down/home/power keys until you see a yellow triangle, then press the volume up key to access "odin or download mode".
Step 4: Open Odin and connect the oem usb cable from pc to device. The driver should automatically install( it did for me on windows 7 64bit). There should also be a "comport number" in upper left hand corner of Odin indicating communication between the pc & device.
Step 5: Click on the pit function of Odin and select the sch-i605-16gb.pit file.
Step 6: Click on the PDA function of Odin. Select the stock VRALJB image you downloaded in step 1, then select start. This operation should take less than 8 minutes before Odin will say pass/reset.
Step 7: Your device should boot back up into factory stock 4.1.1 android! However, If your device is stuck in a bootloop, power the device off, press and hold the volume up/home/power buttons until the samsung logo appears. The device will boot into recovery and from there you will need to wipe data/factory reset, then reboot.
