[Q] [HELP THE NOOB] A weird case of softbrick.
Such a warm heartening welcome I felt after watching the Noob video. I am noob.
I've been a lurker for quite a long while, but only this harrowing case of a softbrick that has hit my N8000 that has encouraged me to register and actually post.
Here's how it went:
I took a nap on Monday afternoon, my Note was left charging, it was working just fine. I get up, I look around for it, It was stuck on "Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1", the bootscreen.
I've been trying a lot of stuff for the past three days, here it goes:
I can boot into download mode. I can get into recovery mode (High On Android's CWM)
I can't flash anything through ODIN, it gives me a "Complete(Write) operation failed."
Recovery mode always displays "E:can't mount cache/recovery/log" "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log"
I can only mount /cache and /system in "Mounts and Storage", the rest give me a mounting error.
I tried getting into it through adb, but it says "unauthorized" next to my device.
Is there hope? I read this might be a corrupt NAND because of the NAND fail on ODIN. But I can get into both download mode AND recovery, so there is hope, right? RIGHT?
I also have tried a couple USB cables, both ODIN 1.85 and ODIN 3.07, I wanted to try Heimdall; I tried 1.1, it doesn't detect my device. Heimdall 1.4 on the other hand detects my device, but I can't flash recovery through it (It only acceps Heimdall Firmware? Packages?)
Also on Good news, I ran an emmc scanner, and it gave me OK on every singe line from start to end. (0 to 15750 *or something round that number*)
