Unhappy [Q] I'm stuck after restoring from TWRP

Hi, so i didn't read that restoring a backup via TWRP causes a boot loop of the system process crashing. So i'm trying to fix it.

The backup i made was of the MAXIMUS5.5 rom

I downloaded this SPR-N900PVPUBMI3-20131004135946 and used odin via the instructions in thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471421 but i got an error of sw rev check fail fused 2 binary 1.

per the instructions on this: http://galaxynote3root.com/galaxy-no...galaxy-note-3/ i tried it again, and i got the same message.

Now when i just try to boot up the phone, instead of being able to get into TWRP, i get a messaging saying "firmware upgrade encountered an issue" so i tried to follow the steps on http://androidcentral.us/2013/09/how...issue-on-kies/ i downloaded kies 3 which said was supported, i entered the model number, but i get stuck at entering a serial number. i have tried (and searched) for what the serial number is, tried the HEX, DEC, ICCID, none of these worked.

So now i'm stuck on this firmware upgrade encountered an issue and i have no idea where to go from here

I've tried searching as best i could to find out what to try next and i'm at a dead end. Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much in advance.

So could it be that my phone was on MJ4 and the .tar i have is MI3? I found this thread, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2522638&page=3 which has file N900PVPUBMJ4_N900PSPTBMJ4_N900PVPUBMJ4_HOME.tar

Would trying to use this file via ODIN help?

Yes. Once your phone is on mj4 you are unable to revert back to mi3 or mi5

Please let us know if this works out for you.

Thanks for the reply, this did get me further. It flashed fine, but i'm still getting stuck on "Process system isn't responding" then the phone reboots. What should i do next?

Thanks again

Yes, please go to this thread,

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2549035

Look for the drawing provided by Skunk Ape1, in this post (#45),

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=45

Heres direct link to the tar file,

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7woc047avr...4_HOME.tar.md5

Try Odin 3.07, as it's the version in the drawing provided by Skunk Ape1.

I did a factory reset wipe from stock recovery, it gave me an error about /efs, now i'm getting stuck with just a SAMSUNG logo on a black screen, then it reboots and does that all over again. Any tips from here?

Just incase anyone else is having this issue, i fixed it, heres what i did.

1. After i flashed the MJ4 via odin, i flashed Auto-root, then it reboot.
2. Then i flashed TWRP via ODIN downloaded here: http://goo.im/devs/OpenRecovery/hltespr
3. Then it booted up but was telling me i was in factory mode, so i followed these instructions http://galaxynote2root.com/galaxy-no...phone-csc-pda/ but instead of using ADB i booted into TWRP recovery, used advanced > terminal command to run this
4. Then i did a factory reset via TWRP
5. Then i rebooted and everything is working.

I wonder if you'd flashed the IMG via Flashify, you would've had the same issue. Either way, glad to see you finished the job.

Outstanding news...
