I have a question and I hope someone is still reading through these threads. I have a Galaxy Note 3 AT&T SM-N900A. When I bought it a couple weeks ago, (I already own another one but a T-Mobile variant, to which I've had no issues) I wanted to root it. So I did. Then I removed some system apps. Then I realized I wanted to update it since it was only 4.3! Well OTA was out of the question and so was KIES as I rooted. SO I thought it'd be best to unroot and flash stock firmware and continue to update via OTA. That has not happened. Every time I try to flash stock firmware, regardless of the version of Odin, regardless of where I downloaded the firmware, I always get a fail!!! NOTHING WORKS!!! I even unistalled KIES, reinstalled drivers, tried different USB chords, including the one that came with the phone!!!! I just want to get it back to it's original state so that I can update it via OTA or KIES. I'll paste the ODIN message and a thumbnail that has a screenshot of my phone in download mode when ODIN fails. If ANYONE can help in ANY WAY, I'll donate!!!!! I'll do almost anything!! This is driving me crazy and I'm not one who likes to admit defeat and bring it to Best Buy, especially since Best Buy is over an hour away from here!!! There has to be a way I CAN do this! Here is the ODIN fail message:
