We're talking about ways to completely recover a device.
@Oranav , @Rebellos and myself are working on a bootloader to work around this issue. https://github.com/Rebell/exynos4_uboot
We should be able to insert test commands to my bricked GS3, but I want to try to recover the data first. This device was given to me for data recovery and testing bootloaders. Currently we are working around the EMMC and booting from SDCard.
In theory, yes. In practice - no one has yet to put the required components together. (Actually, while the I9300 does have an SD-based "unbrick bootloader" process, I'm not sure if that works on Note2 units)
Pretty much two things are needed to recovery an SDSed or Superbricked device:
1) Use the boot partition resize trick to cause a low-level eMMC wipe - see Hashcode's success on the Kindle Fire - won't work if the device's eMMC is so corrupted it can't even boot a kernel or recovery
2) Once the eMMC is wiped, repopulate bootloaders - this is far harder to do on Exynos devices than on GP OMAPs like the Kindle Fire, which is why no one has done it yet - in theory this last part could be done by a JTAG service
