[Q] Problem rooting SM-N9005
For two days i have been struggling to root my new Orange Romania N9005.
First of all I downloaded CF Auto Root and Odin 3.09. Followed the steps exactly (i'm not new to rooting) ,Uninstalled Kies and downloaded the latest drivers only, and every single time I try to root it Odin gives the following error:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/005> Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
<ID:0/005> File analysis..
<ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/005> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/005> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/005> FAIL! (Auth)
<ID:0/005> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
On the screen of the note 3 the following error in red : SECURE CHECK FAIL : recovery
I have since tried every single version of ODIN , tried flashing pre-rooted roms only to get my device soft bricked(Fails right at the very end, and then I restored via kies )
,I have tried to change usb ports to no avail, even tried to root it on 4 different laptops.Tried with different cables, with usb debugging on and off, NOTHING WORKS!!!
Please help me I am thinking of setting it on fire!!!
