Default Samsung KIES sucks ass

OR easy way, go to samsungs site anddownload KIES. use the emergancy software tool or upgrade tool and that will get you back to stock, just my two cent lol[/QUOTE]

You do have to remember that KIES sucks ass. I got stock phones it can't even recognize. Odin is still the best way of recovering any phone made by Samsung vs actually relying on Samsung own product.

Installing KIES is only a good thing when you need the drivers. Does that really well.

Could the OP method possible be used to downgrade the bootloader the an earlier stock bootloader/rom which will not trip knox when rooting?
No. once Knox is tripped, it's tripped.

LOL. Looks like someone saw my peeved off posts about the Note 3 JTAG service that was performed for me before I edited the posts :-x

*For The Record; Shabby is correct, you don't have to be plugged into any external power source, for this to work...

**ALSO!; The Stock ROM may not always be needed, depending on the individual and their case's circumstances...
I've had ppl tell me that no matter what, they try turning on their phone(SGN2/SGN3/SGS4) and it automatically goes into download mode(without showing the warning screen)... So since it wouldn't boot system OR Recovery, I'd try Button-Combo into ODIN-mode, and press Volume-down at the warning screen, and system would boot!
I Had a hunch that might work in this case, and it DID! lol.

Now I'm just trying to put the unbrick.img onto the sdcard I wrote it to... I can't seem to get MTP up, through USB, though ADB works fine...

**EDIT: I forgot, that before I Bricked it, I had the USB settings to DM+MODEM+ADB, cause I WAS unlocking it...
(until a slip of a click and I wrote a backup of the NVdata to the EFS... =/ )
But, after I put the sdcard into my laptop, realized there's not nearly enough room to copy the .img to it...

***SO.... How am I supposed to be able to "dd if=/sdcard/unbrick.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024 count=168960"?
I can't put the .img on the sd? Do I put it on the internal? or do I put it on another sdcard and put it in??

**** ACTUALLY, NVM.... THAT'S what I'm gonna do! XD ha
root@hltetmo:/ # dd if=/storage/extSdCard/unbrick.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024
ck.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024 count=168960 <
168960+0 records in
168960+0 records out
