Default [Q] Please help with ARHD 30.0 install

GOAL
To run Android revolution HD 30.0

DEVICES AND TOOLS
GT-N7100 bought in Finland and running stock 4.3 JSS15J.N7100XXUEMK9 not rooted
Windows 7 pro 64bit
Odin 3.09
Kies 2

WHAT I'VE DONE SO FAR

1.
Flash via odin [BL]
BL_N7100XXUEMJ5_1903221_REV04_user_low_ship.tar.md 5

--> Fail in Odin + "Firmware update encountered an issue."

2.
Flash via odin [AP]
philz_touch_5.00.5-n7100.tar.md5

--> The phone boots and works but I'm unable to enter Philz Touch recovery. Instead it shows

| Android system recovery <3e>
|
| Volume up/down to move highlight;
| power button to select.
|
| reboot system now
| apply update from ADB
| apply update from external storage
| wipe data/factory reset
| wipe cache partition
| apply update from cache
|
| android on its back with exclamation mark
|
| # MANUAL MODE #
| -- Appling Multi-SCS...
| Applied the CSC-code : NEF
| Successfully applied Multi-CSC


I'm able to enter download mode. It shows

| ODIN MODE
| PRODUCT NAME: GT-N7100
| CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: Yes (1 counts)
| CURRENT BINARY: Official
| KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 1
| RP SWREV: A2


Can you please tell me what to do next?

First of all: Forget about point 1, downgrading BL to MJ5 MUST fail.

Second: Flash latest TWRP or Philz tar using Odin 3.09.

Third: Flash your desired rom through this custom recovery
Device: Samsung Galaxy Note II [GT-N7100]
All time best ROMs: Dr. Ketan
My Stock Roms and Bootloaders
Working on:

The problem is custom recovery is getting over written by stock recovery as soon as your phone reboots after flashing the custom recovery.First download supersu v1.99 from Here and transfer it to your sd card.Now to avoid over writing of custom recovery by stock recovery flash the custom recovery as usual but instead UNCHECK AUTO REBOOT IN ODIN.Once odin says pass your phone will still be on and in download mode.Remove the battery put the battery back in after a minute or so.Manually enter into recovery mode (volume up +home + power) now you should be able to see the custom recovery now go to install zip choose sdcard1(external sd card) in philz for the first time it freezes and goes back to main menu don't worry just click on install zip again and navigate to sdcard1 find the superSu file you transferred , install it and then reboot your phone.Once your phone boots up supersu would ask you if you want to disable knox select yes (if it doesn't ask just open supersu app in drawer and it should)That's it your phone is rooted and deknoxed.Now go back to recovery back up your system as well as EFS.How to back up EFS look at this Guide.Now once you've backed up your current ROM and EFS all that is left is doing the correct wipes (full wipe) in philz or twrp. Also i suggest to use philz tar md5 file when flashing the recovery first time twrp at times doesn't work out right (once you have successfully flashed philz ,you can switch to twrp by flashing twrp zip file from philz recovery and back to philz from twrp by flashing philz.zip file ,it's just that easy).

Default was umnzem

Thank you very much for the instructions, here's more history. The SuperSU doesn't work.

5.
Flash via odin [BL]
N7100_KK_ND3_BL.tar.md5

--> The phone boots and works, Android system info app shows Bootloader: N7100XXUFND3
but I'm unable to enter Philz Touch recovery. Instead it shows

| Android system recovery <3e> etc

Download mode shows

| ODIN MODE
| PRODUCT NAME: GT-N7100
| CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
| KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 1
| RP SWREV: A2

6.
Flash via odin [AP]
philz_touch_5.00.5-n7100.tar.md5

--> The phone boots and works but I'm unable to enter Philz Touch recovery. Instead it shows

| Android system recovery <3e> etc

7. (tried several times)
Flash via odin [AP] reboot disabled
philz_touch_5.00.5-n7100.tar.md5

Battery out and back

Installed UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99r3.zip in Philz Touch recovery

Android os update etc (showing while booting)

"SuperSU has been stopped"

Play store says only Open for SuperSU. When I press it, "SuperSU has been stopped"

Download mode shows

| ODIN MODE
| PRODUCT NAME: GT-N7100
| CURRENT BINARY: Custom
| SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
| KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 1
| RP SWREV: A2

I tried turning off the phone right after SuperSU install AND selecting off / restart
at the menu with
Yes - Disable recovery flash
Yes - Fix root (/system/xbin/su)

--> no difference, "SuperSU has been stopped"

The shield nagging about unauthorized access ...

8.
I typed in terminal
su
pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid

no difference --> reboot --> no difference (expected as I'm not rooted)

Please note that I'm running ND3 bootloader now, if it makes a difference.

@Dude35 When I get on laptop I'll link you to the official NE1 firmware which is latest KitKat France edition flash that via pc Odin it will take care of all the errors then just repeat the steps I listed above.

But just before that use one the newest philz tar file like 6.41.6 philz 5 is too old and not sure if that would work right I remember using philz 5 to root my 4.1.2 firmware report back if flashing newest philz works if not I'll link you up soon with official stock rom and then re root

Edit:didn't have to wait till I got on pc herehere's the stock NE1 firmware. Download it extract the zip file you'll get tar file put phone in download mode place the tar file ap/pda mode and hit start let it do its thing Good luck
