Default [Q] Odin Fail OTA NC4

I have a OTA Stock 4.4.2 Note 3. I rooted using Gehot's method and all was working fine. Safestrap, SU, Titanium. Decided to flash a rom today since installing the NC2 Kernel via Odin is the trick. DLed Odin 3.09 and the NC2 kernel but it failed. Now anything I do fails and I am stuck on the download screen telling me to use Software Upgrade program. Can i fix this??

Did you unzip the NC2 kernel package and use the file inside?

I could be wrong but if you updated the with the OTA I think your NC4 upgrade will increment some counter that prevents you from rolling back. Even if you have root. Unless you were already on an nc2 rom...

I think the person that posted above your last post is right about not being able to downgrade since you're on the NC4 bootloader. Try booting into the stock recovery and doing a factory reset.

Get into recovery. And factory reset.

If that doesn't work.

Restore your back up in ss.

If you can't even get into safe strap..



You need to flash the appropriate. .Pit file to fix your phone.

The OTA thing is crucial... I really don't think you can roll back if you took the update OverTheAir

Had the same issue last night, rebooted to recovery factory reset & wipe cache then reboot

If it doesn't work on the first reboot try a couple more times mine booted on the third attempt

While you can't roll firmware back you can still odin the nc2 kernel on a nc4 build
