Default Fix for bootbrick

Haven`t seen anyone else mention this here yet so...

Myself and a few others have been affected by this seemingly unsolveable brick.Continous bootloops,Process system errors,loss of EFS folder so no network or WiFi.
I`ve been following this N900T thread as it has been pretty active http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...467001&page=39
A member bakachu posted a fix for the N900T and as i was getting extremely desperate i tried it.It works for me on my N9005
Go to post #350 for the fix and read onwards for confirmations.
Too put it mildly i`m so delighted to have my Note 3 back in working condition
Big thanks to all involved in that thread

I had problems with adb as the drivers wouldn`t install properly with all the bootloops.I downloaded the latest TWRP 2.6.3.2 and used the Terminal Command in Advanced settings. I made sure i was in root directory then entered mke2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 Didn`t use the rest of the code.
Went back to the wipe options and did a factory reset.

Sir to understand correctly i should take following step.
1.Flash stock rom from odin.
2. Flash twrp 2.6.3.2 from odin.
3. Go into twrp and in advanced setting used terminal command and then used mke2fs/dev/block/mmcblk0p12.
4. Again in twrp go in wipe option and do factory reset.
My steps are right? What do you mean by root directory? Plese help sir..

Your steps are correct.
When you open Terminal Command you should check what directory is showing below the input box
just go up a level until you reach root directory. (\) Then press select and input the code.

Sir my phone in service center and if they fixed this problem without charging me anything its ok or if they give me replacement so i am waiting... otherwise now we have solution....
So if any other bootloop member should used this step and report back here. Thanks again as you are so kind...
