Hi,

My friend's note 2 got stuck on Samsung logo boot screen and whenever I access the recovery, it loads that android robot logo for a second and then restarts. I still have access to download mode, I have tried flashing a stock 4.3 rom, CWM and Philz recoveries with Odin but still same problem exists. I flashing using PDA button, should I try the bootloader or something?


The phone was on stock rom but she doesn't know the exact version and I assume it was on a 4.1.x rom.

Any help?
Thanks

Here is what you do,go into ODIN mode and get the .tar.md5 of philz touch 6.19 or twrp 2.6.3.2 flash it via odin and uncheck "auto reboot" that you see on the left side of the ODIN app,let the recovery be flashed in ODIN and once you see in GREEN saying RECOVERY PASS exit odin and using the vol down +home + power button keep it pressed until you samsung note screen let go of all buttons as soon as you see it and you're recovery will load within 5-10 seconds (twrp loads faster than philz) if you keep the buttons even after seeing the samsung note 2 message then it won't go into recovery,btw your friend's phone has she upgraded to official 4.3? or still on 4.1.2?

I tried twrp now with unchecking "auto reboot" and still same problem, I think you meant volume up not down as down will get me into download mode again.
It loads till the android robot recovery logo with the moving hollow cube , it keeps moving for a second or something "loading" and then phone restarts by itself and gets stuck on samsung boot logo again.
She doesn't know which android version she was on, she in not that much into phones so probably with factory rom "4.1.2".

After all these successful flashes, Odin still says:
Custom binary download: No
Current binary: Samsung official
System binary: Official

you might want to follow this guide and try to re root her phone http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1896696 i followed that thread to root my note II ,but do remember that guide is only for users who are official 4.1.2 or 4.3 ,if your friend was on 4.1.1 you would need to download the official firmware from your country 4.1.2 that is and then follow the rooting guide,hope it works out for you,do let me know the end result

Tutorial Try Wipe data and cache
I had this problem too after i clicked on factory reset in my rooted 4.3 n7100. Found the solution from a thread but i forgot where it was.
What I did was boot into recovery and perform "wipe data and cache". After wiping data, my note 2 are able to boot again...

NOTE: you will lose your data saved in your phone once you wiped it...

Simple answer is yes. He quite clearly stated he could access download mode already in the OP.

Ooops! Sorry ! Forgot this
Btw, I suggest OP to flash a firmware which is Multipackage (it contains a PDA, MODEM, BOOTLOADER etc)
Idk where you can find one (if i does exist because I mostly update my Note II using KIES)
