Storage Fix for hard-bricked Galaxy Note 2s

I've got a potential fix for bricked Galaxy Note 2's. It involves porting the GS3 recovery from SD to the GN2. This is not a full repair, only a fix to get the GN2 in operations. I'd like to work with someone who has the ability to open their Galaxy Note, take some pictures, hook up wires, and do some hardware hacking with me.

This method of recovering GN2's will be the standard for recovering from bad bootloaders once we're done.

As a side note, didn't know where else to post...

Would anyone be willing to look at my Huawei mercury... basically, cricket OTA'd a brick update and I can't get the device to do anything. Can't flash any rom or recovery/save anything to the phone/adjust any settings/etc. Basically the phone is unwriteable... ultimately i would like to get it up again so I can use it as a remote storage and appletv/xbmc remote (if nothing else) but can't get it to do anything... I'll send you whatever you need to try and create a solution for me with a fair donation... As I even have friends I could sell this too for a few bucks lol

I was not able to disable the EMMC, so there is no update.
