[Q] Soft Bricked VZW Note 2
Ok I desperately need some help here. I first got my Note 2 February of last year and quickly rooted it and loaded up Scott's Clean Rom (whichever version was available at the time). I kept going through the updates for Clean Rom and had no issues and was still running Clean Rom until a few weeks ago. Since he was no longer making updates to it I decided just to return to stock since I didn't need root capabilities anymore. I went through the steps in this post, [GUIDE][VZW Edition]How to Root/Rom/Return to Stock the VZW Galaxy Note II!
to flash the Official VRAMC3 4.1.2 update to return to stock and had no issues. Everything worked perfectly for several days. Then a friend of mine let me borrow his Note 3 out since I was thinking about buying one. While I had the Note 3, he accepted the latest factory update on my Note 2. Now I'm soft bricked, hopefully not hard bricked.
When I boot up the phone it just sits on the Galaxy Note 2 logo. I can't get into recovery but I can still get into Odin mode. I first tried using Odin to flash the pit file to repartition the phone, and even though I knew it probably wouldn't work I then tried loading the Official VRAMC3 4.1.2 update again. Of course it failed. I've tried multiple times since then to load the Official 4.3 updates, even the newest one that just came out a few days ago. No matter what I have tried I still cannot get the phone to load past the Galaxy Note 2 logo or get into recovery. Also when I go into Odin Mode here is exactly what it reads.
PRODUCT NAME: SCH-1605
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0
AP SWREV: A2
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't buy the Note 3 like I want to until I'm able to fix and sell this phone, so I'm currently stuck using my old HTC Thunderbolt that barely runs at this point. Thanks in advance!!
