Hello i was flashing a new ROM and some how i borked it and now stuck on galaxy note 2 screen. So i installed up to date drivers and latest odin, downloaded a .tar for my phone and now the computer says "does not recognize device" and odin wont recognize either. It was actually doing the "device not recognized" thing before i borked this evening. So basically i cant use odin and cant get into recovery, when the phone is off and i plug in the charger it just hangs on the battery screen even though it don't move and the screen stays on when i unplug the charger, PLEASE HELP!! I was on latest att stock TW rooted ROM. Any help would be great!! Oh and it will go into download mode, PC just wont recognize device.
