New MoBo and business as usual. You never leave that big, fat screen once you get a taste of it.

I purchased a SGS2 in the meantime, but it feels ridiculously tiny after the Note.

i don't want to take the risk anymore. and the most important part is i never heard anyone bricked their device while using Mobile Odin yet.

Press the *Thanks* button is not that hard isn't it? xD

Reverted back using Mobile Odin and CF-LC1 kernel. Did not encounter any problems.

Question: Is using Heimdall on a Mac the same as PC Odin on a PC?

Another question: Is 'full-wipe' = 'wipe/data factory' reset in CWM? If not, can someone define full-wipe for me please?

I did a wipe/data in CWM while on CF LPY before flashing TMT 1.2 LPY rom (As per OP instructions). So many contradicting messages floating around threads at the moment!

Full wipe is:
1. factory reset
2. cache wipe
3. dalvik wipe

provided you didn't do any wipes prior to using it on stock ICS.

If you did, and your Note has a wonky EMMC chip, nothing would work for you: neither PC, Mobile Odin or Abyss.

You're fcuked.


I was on LPY. Did a full wipe on the LPY rom and after a while decided to revert back to GB rom (KK1) so I used the pc odin method and once completed i rebooted to recovery to wipe factory and cache. Now back to GB rom with no problems.

I followed this XDA guide for install the ICS 4 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1840). So that i already flashed CF root, on my Note. So should i again flash it? If i re-flash same kernel again it will make any trouble?

If i need, flash again CF root how do i reboot into recovery?

Thanks in advanced!

So, wait - because PC Odin failed due to classic symptoms of THE DAMAGE IS ALREADY DONE, it's at fault?

Not a single one of those posts shows any evidence that PC Odin bricked their device - they all show indications of users that failed to flash with PC Odin because they MMC was ALREADY DAMAGED.

There isn't a single report of a user bricking with PC odin - Show me ONE that isn't an example of a user failing to flash in Odin because their partition is already damaged OR is a historic example of a user being an idiot and flashing bootloaders.

Yup. PC Odin is the only 100% safe way to install a fresh kernel.

And that's the other BIG problem with this guide - why is it telling a user to go from a dangerous kernel to YET ANOTHER dangerous kernel (XXLPY-based?)

The safest way to get away from ICS is:
Use PC Odin or Heimdall to flash a safe Gingerbread kernel with working CWM (NOT a full firmware package, and DO NOT mess with repartitioning), such as a Gingerbread CF-Root release. From there you can wipe and then flash whatever you want.

To be clear - JUST flash a safe kernel and then wipe/flash using that - don't flash anything else in PC Odin. If the full firmware package you flash has bootloaders it could hose you.
