Default [Q] Hard Bricked, now what?

I just hard bricked my At&T Note, I tried using the usb jig and it didn't work out to well for me. I know the jig works, i have used it on my phone and my brothers.

Is there anyone that knows how to Unbrick a dead phone?

Thank you for your help.

Ok so I found out the only way after Bricking your phone to the point that even a download mode jig cant bring the phone back is doing a jtag

I bricked my phone thanks to a misinformation on how to flash recovery.img

JIG did not work for me either. the only thing I could do was to drop at an att store and told them the phone is not working. they tried some stuff on it and then gave me a new one instead.

The only thing was that I had it for less than a month.

I hope you sort your problem, but this is not the place to ask questions.
