[HELP] Galaxy Note 3 n9005 with KitKat (4.4) HARD BRICKED - FIXED!

We all must have the debrick.img on our extSdCard by security. If we have a Hard Brick we can make like this example solved whit success.

I Quote Post #7:

This for another device whit success: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2600869. Is same here. Thanks @shazzl

And this the most important: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2439367. Thanks @KAsp3rd. All credits to this work HERE.

See also this to create the debrick.img: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=45. Thanks @DocHoliday77

T999 is a example. This Mod work whit Pit.file partition mmcblk0. This is same on all Samsung devices afaik. I only change to N9005_Partial_sys...

If You flashed a new Pit file or Updated by OTA (that can bring one), make new debrick.img .

PS: All People, make your debrick.img and have it on extSdCard by security.

My debrick.img N9005 4.4.2 Kitkat: HERE. Look the THANKS buton if download it.

Flash this Mod attached by Recovery. Saved on internal Sdcard. Copy it to extSdCard.

NOTE: It seems that entire "debricking using microSD" works a little different on Qualcomm-based Samsung phones vs Exynos-based phones - so far all in this thread is about Qualcomm-based models. See post #26 to more details.
Thanks @xclub_101 .

Please note that this is for hard bricked Galaxy Note 3 n9005 with KitKat (4.4)! If you get an unbrick image from 4.3 it wouldn't work!

I looked inside the updater_script from .zip file and it work only whit Pit file partition mmcblk0. Then if we not flashed a pit file from 4.3 to 4.4 the debrik.img must be the same because the pit file is the same. In this case I think it work.

Anyway, by security is easy make one to 4.3 and another to 4.4.

Everybody knows about this but I don't think many people thought to keep a backup. Everybody would worry of this if and when they got hard bricked. Well, when I say 'everybody', I mean me. So thanks.

I agree. We must remember the people whit this reminder. I'm happy to have helped two members saved Your devices, sending to them the debrick.img.
One Mega 6.3" I9205 and now the Note 3 N9005. And I have already my debrick.img on all my devices.

Do you know if this will work if we have a rom installed and are not on stock firmware?

Look, the debrick.img is made from partition mmcblk0 (PIT) like we can see on updater_script from META-inf of .zip that create it.
One Costumer Rom not touch on Pit file and the Stock Rom, if not have a Pit to flash, is the same. The PIT continue there untouchable.

Then, in my opinion we can make a debrick.img also in this case.

Don't wish to criticise as this has helped some owners, however if you can recover phone function then by definition it wasn't hard bricked.

Widely accepted definition soft bricked is fixable by flashing from pc,

Hard brick is a paper weight unless you've access to jtag kit
