Unbrick from "nand erase all" & Odin "fail" workaround!!

Search This thread
This should work with most galaxy device as I got some insight from the S3 forums.
If u get the fail message like the one in the attachment picturethen ur odin is f**ck*d up and wouldn't let u flash.So download another one compatible to ur device ie original firmware for ur device install by odin then root,install mobile odin and flash the "fail" firmware(u can later change csc to this firmware and install stock recovery for updates)!!
For "nand erase all" this was tough but once u've got it, its easy.
-First download this recovery.
-enter recovery mode and do a factory reset.Then do erase cache!
-Now reboot in download mode and flash the md5 official firmware of ur choice.(note not the one that gives u "fail" error).
-ur galaxy note boot animation may be screwed but ur device will boot eventually.

Hit thanks if this saves ur day!!

So is this for all models or just 8013/10 wifi models only?
If for specific model it might be an idea to say so or you may be causing people to brick their device...
