[Q] Need help with N7100 (stuck in screen Firmware upgrade encoutered an issue etc.)
I need help with my N7100. I already read a lot about this problem on the internet and tried a lot of different things, but here's the problem.
My phone was every time removing my external sd card, so I thought I'll reinstall it and put a new rom on it. I installed Omega Rom, but had the known Wifi connection problem, so I flashed the wifi fix with Odin, but accidentally used the bootloader instead of pda option in Odin (because I misunderstood the instruction on the Omega first page). Eventually my phone sometimes froze and decided to try another Rom, Dr. Ketans Rom. The same problem existed, so I tried to flash the 'original' bootloader (one I found on this website). The problem was still there, so I tried it again and Odin said failed all the time after that and I couldn't start up my phone anymore, because it goes to the screen: 'Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.' I can now only go to download mode. After that I wanted to use Odin to flash the stock rom, but it gave an error with the pit file, so I found a pit file on this site and flashed it with Odin and than I could start up my phone again. I still wanted to go back to the stock rom, so I used Odin for this the latest version N7100XXUEMK9_N7100PHNEMK2_N7100XXUEMJ9_HOME.tar. I bought the phone in the NL, so I'm guessing this must be the right version, but it could be an international one (product code). During the flashing process it failed and since than I have the same problem again that I can't boot up my phone. I tried it maybe 50 times now and every time it keeps failing (in download mode). I tried 3 different cables, all usb ports, computers, odin versions. The weird thing is that the flashing of system.img sometimes fails in the beginning and some times when it is almost finished, that's why I thought I might just need 1 lucky strike, but after about 50 times I want to try something else...
