I got a official android 4.1.2 rom on my brothers windows computer (sammobile normal download servers are down so I found another one). I tried flashing that to my device (which I know how to do already), but everytime I do it, I get a message saying Complete(Write) operation failed. Here is my log when installing for better info (pastebin since on another computer):

the ND7 bootloader is locked. it requires opening it up and using KOBAL's method to short the resistor, put the bootloader on and sdcard and boot into SDCARD mode by shorting that resistor
