Okay, so I had a stock Note 2 fully updated software or whatever (if you go into 'Settings' then 'About phone' the 'Software update' part). I followed section 1a instructions (10 steps): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2024207 and then this one for WIndows: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2118348 (I just followed the video instructions) and everything seemed to work out fine and I got Team Win Recovery.

But when I did a factory reset in Team Win recovery, the phone did not boot up at all and I had to use Odin to install Root66 stock VRALJB 4.1.1 12/2/12 like I did in the first set of instructions I did in order for my phone to boot up again.

Is this normal/supposed to happen?

... Why did you factory reset at all? There was no reason to unless you were installing a rom. You made two errors back to back. Doesn't root 66 relock the bootloader? I don't even know what to suggest you do. Don't mod your phone till you read more. If you don't learn this stuff you will have a very expensive brick dude

Factory reset wiping from within the phone software is totally different from factory wiping from within recovery and not to be confused with one another.

doing a format wipe from within twrp could be compared to format c: at a dos command prompt. Once you reboot there is no OS in the phone

I'm pretty sure you are mistaken. I have factory reset with TWRP plenty of times and it does not format the system partition. So, my bet is either he had a bugged TWRP or he accidently went to Wipe-->System instead of factory reset. Factory reset should just wipe data and cache.

Ah yes, I accidentally did Wipe-->System
