Hi I have a big problem because since I tried to reboot to install an add-blocker, I can't go into recovery and I can't start my gt-n9005 anymore because following error message comes:

Custom binary blocked by Reactivation Lock.
SECURE FAIL: KERNEL

And when I want to flash something with odin in download mode following error message appears:

SECURE CHECK FAIL: Recovery

Please help me I don't know what to do. Thank's in advanced...

Can you boot your phone? If you, can, you can go to settings and uncheck the reactivation lock..after that, you should be able to enter recovery normally.

Regards!

Sorry, I misread the statement..my bad!

To the OP: what happens when you try to boot? I am asking because I just recovered my device from a similar condition...

Regards, sorry again!

Try flash back your country firmware with correct CSC.

Try this it might help if that is the thing you did before - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...03&postcount=2 scroll down to section mention

HELP! I flashed N9005XXUBMJ3_N9005OXABMJ1 and now I am stuck in download mode! What do I do?!
You are mostly going to trip the KNOX Warranty at this point.
Flash this AP N9005XXUBMJ3_N9005OXABMJ1_BTU_RECOVER.tar.md5 (2.05 GB) and this CSC N9005OXABMJ3_CSC.tar.md5 (38.0 MB)

Factory reset won't help, as Reactivation is blocking you if you had use different country CSC and you did it before you un-tick the Reactivation Lock.

I can't boot my phone and i can't boot recovery...i always get the message "Custom binary blocked by Reactivation Lock. Secure fail: Kernel" with a yellow alert triangle underneath, even if I normally try to boot my phone. And when I than press the power button the phone turns off again.
I tried to flash cwm with odin but that also failed.
So before i go downloading another firmware (i live in a dormatory and only have 10gb internet a month) do you really think that would work?

I had this exact problem recently and I booted by going into download mode and then pressing volume up to reboot. Somehow or other that would boot. Powering off and back on would always get that error that you are getting.
