Hey guys, any info on this would be great.

Have a ATT Note 3... It boots into recovery and Download mode..

Basically, I was going to install knoxraid, wiped /system /data, but didn't have the rom file to flash.

Then, rebooted phone, and it will go into stock recovery but not safestrap.

Please help... I know it can't be completely bricked.

I tried unbrick-soft-bricked-att-galaxy-note-3-sm-900a but it fails

(also, I am sure Samsung drivers are installed)

So you can't get the phone to boot normally? What happens when you try to let the phone boot up on it's on without trying to go into recovery or download mode?

I believe you are going to have to Odin back with the Odin JB files. Their is three of them. I see if I can find you more info as to what to do.

That would work beautifully, but I don't have safe strap installed and can't get into a ROM...

Basically, I can get into download and stock recovery mode.

Nope, I erased system and data... So, I can get into recovery and download mode.

Any help is hugely appreciated....if I could flash safe strap, it would be fine.

All your gonna have to do is Odin some JB files and your Safestrap should still be on their regardless of you erassing your system data.

Dude. Wait. If you wiped system you have no rom..All you have to do is use your computer and download a rom and push to your sd card. Then use stock or recovery to flash. Lol. I did this on my nexus once. Anyway it's simple fix.

I would say you could revert to MJ5 link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2559715. Read it to the T. This will put the MJ5 4.3 back on your phone. You don't need safestrap to revert back to MJ5 method. You can root and install safestrap back on when its installed. Just do steps 1-9 if you don't want to root this method. don't worry about this download link ( https://mega.co.nz/#F!icMTnSQY!bMBNFmUnn2_K8olSTYpwIA (mirror provided by drakeymcmb) i'ts just a mirror for the ml9 fix.image ext4.

Alright, I'll follow this eexact. I am not new to flashing and ROM mods. (Been doing it since the s2). I normally would push via ADB, use a custom recovery and be set. But, just picked up the note 2 and ADB wouldnt detect the phone to push ROM.. (Using ADB device). So, anyways.... I know I have to use ODIN. I know its not fubard because the phone boots into download and stock recovery mode.

Thanks everyone, I really want to get this fix. Luckily I have a nexus 5 as well.
