I have a teething baby. 8 teeth in two weeks coming in at the same time. . (Not related to the phone but so you understand why I'm asking for help... I HAVE NO BRAIN FUNCTIONS LEFT).

OK. short version.

Rooted phone with Odin 3.09 because using 3.07 would never finish the root and got stuck in a loop. Used a stock file (verified at the time it is for these phones). Have repeated process multiple times as I've soft bricked these two phones at least 3 times a day for a week... (infant... no sleep... attempting brain functions... bad combo). Soft bricks were for multiple reasons. Too many to list in the time I have before the demon wakes up.

So I've purchased nearly every damn app on Google play that is for rooted phones hoping that one will help me get this to work.


OK here is what I need to do. I took a note 3 sm-n9005 and made it an technologically challenged proof as possible for my elderly mom. Locked it down as best as I could using nova prime and a few other apps so she couldn't easily fubar it. I even let the baby play with the phone for a hour (in a otterbox) and he couldn't figure out how to explode it BUT I would still like a full nandroid backup so that I can remotely reset the device to the exact way it is when it ships to her (lots of senior citizen special setups). I thought I'd did this with clockwork but when I went to test it by flashing it to an identical phone (all the same bootloader, ap, cp, root files etc.) It soft bricked the phone. .. obviously something wasn't right. So reset phone via Odin. Then attempted to flash the backup of that phone (not the backup of phone 1) and again soft brick.

So I got another damn program that gave me this info.

OK so my genius needs I know the rule is to read read read then ask question but can we make an exception for a sleep deprived momma and you guys figure me out a idiot proof guide. Ie download this. Use this Odin. Flash this. Check this. Etc. Bonus points if you are a gem and track down the actual links because my head is freaking spinning....

Here is my *#1234# info.

AP: N9005XXUEND5
CP: N9005XXUENC2
CSC: N9005NEEEND1

It is the same for both phones. I would REALLY like to flash TWRP but have been having hell. I downloaded goo manager and have been trying for two days to download it but it won't. Even after I donated, which my logins aren't working and I've mailed them 3 times with screen shot of my payment but no one responds so I'm guessing this goo thing is scam and I need to contact PayPal.

Ugh I have no problem buying apps and supporting my fellow nerds and geeks but I want them to actually work and get some support when they don't.

Anyway please please help. I'm trying to get this phone to my mom before my dad passes away. We can't afford to fly from Sweden to Louisiana USA, so there is no other way my parents will ever get to see my son in real time before they pass away.

I have micro cards and I can follow instructions. I just don't have enough brain power as a mom to figure out what simple mistake I'm making. I've been rooting, jailbreaking, and installing rooms since my first smartphone (iphone) back in 2008. I just feel like a failure. I've been working at this for weeks.

Anyway please help. I need a hour or so of drinking caffeine before the baby wakes up.

Oh and even though it was confirmed that clockwork mid recovery was supposed to be installed (flashed MULTIPLE TIMES). It would NEVER boot into anything but stock recovery mode... attempting to fix that was actually a few causes of the soft bricks lol.

You can flash TWRP recovery using mobile odin pro (.md5 or .tar). Make sure to download the correct version for your fimware (4.3 or 4.4.2)

THANKS will try to download as soon as the demon wakes up from this nap. I also purchased mobile odin pro and downloaded twrp manager. But when I try to select my device to I stall in twrp it doesn't list anything remotely recognisable as the sm-n9005 or note 3 of any type. . Any advice?

Nope i have 3 galaxy note 3 factory cables 3.0 and all have had the same problems with 3.07 Odin. It worked previously when i rooted a friends phone(different galaxy) a while back but was a no go on my phones from the start. Like I said. I've did this hundred of times from 2008 to now... This is the FIRST time I've fubared so much. So I'm blaming simple idiot error but I'll admit I'm too brain dead from sleep deprivation to figure out what is the simple step I'm missing.

I haven't had sleep in roughly 3 days. Thank god I have ADHD and am on enough ritalin to keep me alive. And I'm trying to ninja proof my apt because this kid decided within two weeks that laying down wasn't cool... now he crawls perfectly can climb over 5 foot (ie over the back of a couch), stand to climb bookshelves, chews the dog while teething(actually he bit the mailman yesterday- baby not the dog...), oh and his newest trick is attempting to pull himself up and WALK. He is only 9 months old yesterday. God help me I think I'm getting payback for my childhood. And he's a redhead too....
