I'm supposed to be leaving to trade this phone in like twenty minutes and I've been literally awake all night trying to factory reset in Odin but no matter what every tar file I throw at it fails!!??? I've tried MJE firmware, NC4 firmware, I've used Odin before and have reset a phone before, but idk for the life of me why I can't get my Verizon Note 3 factory reset!!!

Did you try the pit file in Odin?

I'm not 100% sure I know what the pit file is? I tried Odin version 3.9 I believe, it's the latest one, and I tried version 3.5. Both with 2 different downloads of MJE. And also with the latest kit kat NC4, which I know I lose root with.

I just keep getting fail every time. That or I'll get md5 binary invalid. I've tried renaming the zip files cause I read if you take the md5 off the end and rename to. Tar it would work but it still fails.

I think you can find the pit file here . http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2528707..... I've lock mine up before and all you need to do is flash the pit in Odin and it should reboot

Well I'm downloading it now but it's going super slow. Idk if xda is having server issues or what but every link I downloaded all night long took longer than normal. And I know it's not my computer cause it's brand new almost.

Ok I did that and I see it's a pit file HLTE USA VZW 32g.pit to be exact but what's the difference between a pit file and the md5 firmware? Do I need both, or just try the pit? Do I put the pit file in the same spot in Odin that I would the md5?
