Not selling just suggesting a solution that worked for me..... and crediting where credit is due Mr. Cougar. I was pants down six ways from Sunday and found out that Kies wasn't worth a hoot. Crap, I'm knocked :=/ I just knew I had just crash tested and burned....my very first phone. God bless twrp, I erased and formatted the WHOLE tamale. (Note to self: Maybe smart phones are a bit beyond the parameters of my engineering envelop. :-/ Self, you still have those Hawaiian Punch cans and some cat gut layin around? That concept was right up your alley pal)..but I do digress...
After a good cry, I remembered Skips Magic Note 2 Toolkit.
Heck it was already trashed what else could go wrong. I sucked one in and fired Skips up. Crossed my toes, answered two Q's; had to guess on the third and for gods sakes, Coug... May I call ya Coug? Cool. I pushed the red button. The next thing I know we drop into low. Drivers are loading, the phone squatted down, my computer started smoking and making odd noises. Blink....automatic download factory reset mode happened, three different backups; CWM, TWRP and Philz whipped by and auto installed. The phone started blinking, the room turned black, I stood up so I could stand back.
Then it went Plink, auto reboot, flashed into umm I dunno, maybe fast boot mode..(breathe). Odin popped open and sucked in some file. Things went green after a while, the phone spun around; rebooted again....and then, there it was, Samsung singing that same old Song!!!
Just call me Lazarus dude! It was back and downloading updates by air. And better news yet, I was none the worse for the wear! No Spoof..well perhaps a bit of embellishment here and there..but not that much I swear! The thing's not a toolkit it's AhhhLIVE..and fortunately, so is my phone.....go figure....
Mr. Cougar, that's my story and I'm holding tight to it. There was a bit more. Since it was so neat the first time around, I got cocky and bit it again :=/ However, I regrouped and turned Pro (lmao) But rather than tax you further, I'll save that rubbish for later..
Mr. Cougar, I know that you know how inexperienced I am and how awestruck...nah you can't know but I truly am as I watch and read with great fascination as XDA morphs science fiction into science fact every day. I must tell you Sir, this place really is a treasure!
Plus Bonus! You gave me a grin without knowing...on second thought, you probably did
) Mayhaps I shall return the favor some day....and yes I am still befuddled...but happily so.
Thanks for the shout Mr. Cougar.
