Just got my replacement Note 2 (cracked the screen on my original). I got the original a couple weeks ago and used Casual and Odin to root and unlock painlessly. This time it's giving me trouble.
It took a few tries for Casual to actually get my phone into download mode. Finally got it and used Odin to flash the baseline, it said everything went fine. So I proceeded to flash backatcha. It just gets to "NAND Write Start!!" and sits there. I saw someone else had this problem and Adam said to start over. So I did.
I reflashed the baseline and I guess it saw it was flashed because it just kind of skipped it and said "ok". Now I'm back to the backatcha part and it just won't go past "NAND Write Start!!"
I've tried hitting volume down to restart the phone and it just sits there saying "Galaxy Note II".
EDIT: Currently downloading the stock image from here:
Hopefully flashing that with Odin will fix everything and I can start over. I just wish there was a faster way.
Aaaaand, it lives! I guess I'll try again. When I first got the phone it was on the VRALJB firmware and I got a notice that there was an OTA update. Should I update to VRALL4 before trying to root/unlock?
Ok, well I did the OTA update. Got everything to go semi-smoothly. Except Casual says if you saw TWRP recovery, everything went well. But I didn't. And when I just tried booting into recovery I basically had download mode. Volume up would let me install custom stuff and volume down would restart the phone.
So do I have to do it all again or what? What am I doing wrong?
Guys I really need help I've root my Verizon Wireless Galaxy note 2 with Oden3 vs 307 and root66_VZW_stock_system.tar.md5 via bootloader. That workout just fine I no problems to report. However I trying to unlock the bootloader with Oden3 vs 307 with sch-i605-16gb.pit and BootloaderBaseline2.tar.md5 which failed my computer is a laptop running win 8 / when I try to use casual I keep getting the error message that i'm a Noob. I don't know what i'm doing wrong, how can I correct my errors and fully enjoy my phone with custom roms like you guy... Please Help!
I previously had an unlocked bootloader and rooted on I605VRALJB Rom and then flashed the Stock Rooted I605VRALL4 ROM to update. I see this new bootloader unlocker says I have to be stock, probably flash "[ODIN][VRALJB] Restore to Stock" if I need to. I barely saw this thread and I am not sure if need this update maybe not now but for future purposes.
