I have been stuck on a screen saying "firmware update encountered an issue - select recovery in Kies" so i tried Kies 3.2 however it says my device is not compatible. Come to find out after doing research (talking to the original owner i traded my HTC One for) the Note 3 i have is on the latest version of KitKat 4.4.2 that is not compatible with the Root DelaVega method or any root method - so i screwed that up. I can successfully boot in and out of download mode. Ive tried to flash N900XXUDNA6 4.4.2 in Odin several times, it begins then fails almost immediately and the bar on the phone itself (in download mode) begins then freezes shortly after beginning. Ive also tried to flash N900XXUDNC1 JellyBean thru odin and get the same results - almost immediately fail and the blue status bar on the phone freezes when it barley begins. What else can i do??? am i totally screwed? Ive been researching and trying to fix this for 6 straight hours now! My gf is about to kill me for being online so long Is there anything i can do at this point? Am i stuck
[UPDATE] .after looking around all day i have found i am able to successfully flash the n900a AP, CP, and PIT files, however the problems seems to be whenever i try to flash a Bootloader file. The update gives me the error on the phone "SW REV CHECK FAIL" FUSED 3 BINARY 2. My knox counter is still 0x0. By flashing the at&t AP, PIT, and CP files the phone now boot loops and no longer takes me to the screen requesting me to restore thru KIES. However all it does it bootloop. I try to boot into recovery and it will tell me at the top left of the screen "booting recovery" but then just turn off and go right back to the "samsung galaxy note 3 screen" Does anything have any idea here?????
