Ok so here's how I bricked it:
I really do hate TouchWiz. So I was checking in to ROMS when I found the beauty of CyanogenMod. I've known about it for a lonnggg time it's just I never paid it any attention. Guess who forgot to unlock their bootloaders... THIS GUY!
Here's what I've done so far:
So like usual bricked phone carriers do I went the Odin 3 path. I'm running Windows 8 on the computer I used for it but I doubt that's the problem. Now my trouble is even though I downloaded the proper stock firmware... well when I ran it in Odin everything went well until it said FAIL! error with sboot.bin! So I'm sitting there like and some guy pointed me towards a seemingly proper direction. He said he thinks it's because my bootloaders are still locked so it can't reinstall the firmware. K... seems good
So then I come to xda where I found this threat that shined new hope for me this awesomly smartastic guy gave a link on that thread to an "alternate" firmware for i605 note 2. It left out the sboot.bin thing and the guy that was having trouble there got it on his phone no problamo. Well heres the deal... I can't download it (and I've used different computers, even resorting to my chromebook) it didn't say download failed but it would download 1gb in only a few seconds and no way is my internet that fast... which means oddly enough my download is corrupted. Even Odin says it
Any tips... or can someone point me towards a new download location? Thanks and remember I'm a newbie... so sorry for my newbie stupidity hopefuly there's no sign up test
