Thumbs up [Q] I-317 Note 2 Can't boot into recovery mode, stuck on Samsung Logo

Problem: Stuck on white/black screen, can't boot into recovery, able to boot into download mode

I recently returned my phone to stock following the return to stock tread (4.1.1), however, my first OTA update from ATT (4.1.2), after the install finished it stuck at boot up screen. And I can't get into recovery screen at all no matter what I try.

Tried to flash TW recovery
Tried to flash CWM recovery

no success, any help?

Edit, I noted whenever my phone is off, when plug in the charger/usb cable, my phone automatically goes into the black/white letter screen. WITHOUT touching any button what so ever.

Use Kies to emergency recover back to stock 4.1.1.

Steps. (READ ALL BEFORE STARTING)

1.) Downloads Kies onto your pc
2.) Install drivers to pic
3.) Open Kies and go to TOOLS > instal/upgrade firmware.
4.) Kies will ask you for you device model. AT&T = SHE I317. And your serial number. Located behind the battery.
5.) Hit start in Kies it will down load the stock firmware to your PC. Follow the instructions.
6.) It will eventually ask you to put your phone in download mode and connect it to the pc. Do this.
7.) Don't touch it. It is going to take about 10-20 min depending on your Internet speed and your computer.

When it is complete your phone will be back to stock. The same it was the day you pulled it out of the box.

***I would also make sure you back up any data on your phone because it will delete the sd card. It is also wise to remove any external storage sd.

****when finished you can re root using cf auto root or take the OTA update to get you back to 4.3.

Default KIes 3

I downloaded the newest version of Kies, it is called Kies 3. My note 2 connects to it easily. I have not had to try the emergency repair. Here is the link for it. Hope it helps.

I used the above mention Kies procedure to return my phone to working condition. I was also stuck on the Samsung logo for hours. I tried flashing several backups in Clockwork mod several times for several hours. My sd card would not mount as well. I could use wifi but no phone service. During the Kies process it prompted me to do an emergency repair which I did but this was only after doing a factory reset, and cache wipe, and dalvik cache wipe. I followed the steps by ShrekOpher and my phone was returned to 4.1.2 stock. My new problem is that I made the mistake of updating to 4.3 OTA and now have a locked bootloader. Everything works perfectly except now I'm not rooted. Screen Mirroring works perfect which was the main reason for my misadventure. I'm wondering if I root manually will my screen mirroring be disabled like it was when I was on the unofficial 4.3?

Screen mirroring checks for rooted status and won't run if detected.

See bottom of post #2 here for a link to a solution to that...
