Default [Q] Need help with my note 8

So recently i decided to root my note 8.0 N5110. I put it in download mode and plugged it in thinking I already installed the drivers but i hadn't and the screen went black. I can get it to boot and hear the animation but screen remains black. It will also go into download mode and i reflashed the stock ROM with Odin hoping that would fix the issue but no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you get into recovery mode?
If so, try to do a data/factory reset and see if that helps

If you forget to enable debug mode and set USB debugging to enable in settings, there is no way you are able to flash properly.

You should have used Saferoot.zip. As it is the only rooter that installs the root files, so your not flashing a root over your stock ROM.

There should be a sticky about flashing using safe root here, but it seems like nobody is concerned about newbies getting in trouble with flashing.

I used Chainfire's auto root without any problems found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2291839

I tried to do a restore but it's hard while not having any visuals even in recovery mode. I can put it into download mode via a usb jig.

Do you see the download mode screen but NOT the recovery screen?

What version of Odin are you using?

And I hate to say this but having a blue bar doesn't necessarily mean you are in download mode, I just plugged in my Note while it was "just" on and I have a blue bar saying COM blabla.

Now it almost looks to me that your screen or digitizer might be broken

Yea I think I'm still under warranty since i never did actually root it. So I'm gonna just try that and get a new one.

That just might indeed be your best option
