Hello

Got a Note 2 (N7100), boots up to the Samsung Logo and stays like that, basically that's called a soft-brick?
I'm familiar to Odin flashing, custom recovery flashing and so on - what are the steps to be done here?
Is there anything like a stock recovery ROM you can point me at, that i can flash using ODIN & the steps to follow?

Thanks very much, really appreciated

Download mode > flash philz v5.00.5 through odin > download custom rom > go to recovery > flash the custom ROM > when everything works you can choose to keep using the rom or to get a stock one from Sammobile.

Shouldn't I install a stock rom first (using PIT file + repartition, if it doesn't boot up without repartition ticked - for example) ?


Thanks a lot for your help

The method I put is the extra safe method so u won't be bothered with hard stuff, do it and it should work, or at least just get out of the bootloop u r into.

Many thanks, just worried because i got the phone in this condition for a very affordable price and wanted to fix it someone after reading here on the forum that it's really hard to permanently damage a Note 2 phone, especially when the Samsung Logo boots up.

Hopefully it will work properly after i try the offered method

Keep me updated and good luck, please remember that custom roms like DittoNote3 or phoenix really enhance Ur experience, giving u the note 3 features and many other options, good luck.

Also please remember that you need philz 5.00.5 not the latest one, the latest one won't boot (not for me) and philz 5.00.5 is a very successful version of philz.
