I was running KitKat for a while on my Verizon Galaxy Note 2 SCH-I605. I started having trouble with my SD card and it seemed my only route to fixing it was to root. Initially I was ignorant and used some one click solution. It certainly rooted my device, but it did not unlock my bootloader and when I tried accessing CWM Recovery my phone soft bricked. I proceeded to download ODIN and my phone's stock firmware. I flashed it and fixed my phone.
At this point I should have said goodbye to rooting, but I am a stupid stupid man. I flashed a rooted stock for my phone and it worked, but once again running CWM soft bricked me. I tried a few different things, rooting and trying to get things to work - flashing stock whenever I soft bricked again. Eventually, for whatever reason, ODIN froze when flashing STOCK. This was right around where I was giving up on the whole escapade. I an Install Firmware error and a message for KIES to repair it. I looked online, but none of the methods seemed to fix it. VZW Upgrade Assistant didn't help, and KIES won't either.
The Crux of the Problem:
I managed to get my phone in download mode and in a state of relief flashed stock to fix my phone and leave this all behind. Odin flashed, it all went well. I was very careful to follow the proper steps to ensure a proper flash of stock. Odin went through all its steps, my phone went to reboot. This time odin said PASS! before my phone finished rebooting. Now my phone is just sitting on the screen that says "Samsung GALAXY Note II". I can get to the download screen still, but I can not get to recovery to factory reset.
I know I screwed up on this, please don't tell me everything I should and shouldn't have done. I know i shouldn't have done any of this. I just want some help putting this behind me, whatever the cost. Please help me out guys!
