If it was a EMMC brick it would not boot into recovery or download mode would it?

JTAG is usually the last resort after flashing wrong roms or kernels, but it sounds like this is the last resort, and it works.

Yea, but the weird thing is that this phone has never been rooted or messed with in any way.

So what stock firmware were you on ?

Try everything in Post #1 from above... It's what you already have done.
But as soon as the phone boots from the ODIN flash. Pull the battery and do the factory reset.

I have a sph-l900 and I'm in the same boat. My recovery mode is all in red and won't go past the note 2 logo on start up. I never rooted out fear something like this happening and yet it has. I've tried every stock tar file with Odin but getting "nand start write" followed by "failed". I'm posting on here because this is the only other image I have found that looks like what I have

Not recommended that you flash anything from this section ...
Sph-i900 is a windows phone with massive chipset differences...(omnia with win 6.1)using an intel marvell cpu)...

Flashing anything from the note 2 section will perma-brick your device....g

I have a Sph-L900 (sorry for the misunderstanding) which is the Sprint Note 2. I was looking at this thread because the picture shows exactly the current problem my phone is having and with the same situation of not rooting it. I was looking to see if anyone had additional information since trying to flash stock rom keeps giving the fail notice on odin

Just curious if you ever found a solution.

After exhausting every possible solution people gave me or I could come across, I caved in and sent it to Samsung repair. Turns out it was hardware that needed replacing. I heard it could just be a damaged internal memory or caused by a virus, but Samsung has fixed it for $70 and I should be getting it back this week.
