Softbricked after OTA update SM-N900A
AT&T version of this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=47413669
Started with N900AUCUBMI9, rooted via RDLV (N900AUCUBMI9_OneClickBin)
accepted OTA update (i know) to N900AUCUBMJ5, lost root
Wanted root back, attempted RDLV again, got SECURE CHECK FAIL : cache
, stuck in "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again"
Found this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=47411605
Flashed PIT ONLY, successfully booted up into MJ5, unrooted. Should have left it alone there. KNOX flag 0x0
Wanted root back, thought I could downgrade BL, AP/PDA, Phone, CPC to MI9 as suggested in above thread.
BL fails with SW REV CHECK FAIL : [sbl1]Fused 2 > Binary 1
. AP/PDA, fails with SECURE CHECK FAIL : system
. Phone successfully flashed to MI9. CPC fails with SECURE CHECK FAIL : cache
Stuck in "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again"
Flashed PIT again, phone tries to boot but "Process system isn't responding" after AT&T globe boot animation, then reboots
Attempted RDLV again, get SW REV CHECK FAIL : [sbl1]Fused 2 > Binary 1
, presumably because the MI9 BL can't be flashed over the MJ5 BL.
I'm stuck folks. Any suggestions welcome. Am I just going to have to wait for a stock MJ5 package/files similar to the MI9 files in the thread above?
For those reading who were dummies like me and accepted the OTA update, lost their root, tried to re-root with RDLV: flash the PIT file ONLY from the above link and you should be back into MJ5, un-rooted.
