[Q] Galaxy Note bricked when used "u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit" in Odin
Okay. Some history to start with...
I got Chinese version of Galaxy Note which runs i9220 ROM and been trying to flash with HK/EU ROM last several days but out of luck so far. (And whenever failed, I re-loaded stock ROM found from Samsung-updates.com site for i9220. It then worked fine but still with original problem unsolved.
I then tried one last method that I saw someone succeed flashing Chinese ROM via use of PIT file came from one of the other downloads.. yeah, I didn't check the source PIT came from before try... which is my bad.
Without confirming it, I instantly located "u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit" that's packaged with odin 1.85 and carelessly gave a try.
And now... my precious GalaxyNote became the most expense brick in my house and am looking for professional help from you guys.
Steps I did before bricking and tried:
1. Load GalaxyNote in Download mode (volume down + home + power)
2. Launch Odin 1.85 and no change to default setting. (Check mark on #Auto Reboot & #F.Reset Time, uncheck on #Re-Partition & #Flash Lock)
3. Set PIT to "u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit"
4. Set PDA to "N7000XXKL7_N7000OXAKL7_N7000XXKL7_HOME"
5. Click #Start
Soon after around 5%, it failed.
I then attempted to restore factory ROM via usual way - doing same as above except no PIT this time and choosing original stock ROM for i9220.
It failed! OMG...
I then tried again (#1 ~ 5 above) but this time, check on #Re-partition for luck. Still no luck!
I then downloaded Heimdall1.3.1 and tried to extract PIT file but the tool fails as well and gives "ERROR: Failed to access device. libusb error: -12".
At all times, GalaxyNote screen shows android icon with 'Downloading... Do not turn off target!!'. And the device can also be seen from odin.
Soon as turn off galaxynote and disconnect from computer, it shows 'Software Update Fail' message.
How I can restore to original factory setting? And if possible, how I can restore to EU or Hong Kong ROM?
My Chinese friend has the same device as mine. In this case, will Heimdall tool help extracting PLT from it and help restoring my device via odin?
Your professional help is sincerely appreciated!!!!
