  1. I have the I605 (verizon) and found the correct firmware. It passed in Odin and when the phone went to restart it now is just flashing the Note 2 logo over and over. How do I fix this? Is there a recovery I can get into to fix this??

      1. I’m flashing mine right now. You need to factory reset the device. Turn off your phone and press the up + power+ home button. Then wipe data and cache.

  2. Well, it says “Step 5: Enable USB Debugging in your Asus Transformer Pad TF300T from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. The option of USB Debugging should be ticked.” on a Samsung tutorial so I wouldn’t follow what they say.

  3. I did all of this and my phone is now in some sort of boot loop. It flashes the model number and then shuts off; and will continue to do this until I take out the battery.

    for anybody who is getting boot loop samsung logo, you must reset your device by entering recovery mode, ordont forget to check the reset time in odin

  5. Hi, had bricked my rooted Note 2 GT N7100 while trying to install Kit Kat 4.4.2 sometime time like 4 days ago and had tried re-installing the stock version of 4.1.2 in vain. Well am glad to report that anyone with the same issue can now rest assured that will be the perfect solution for them. Downloaded the International Version of the UK stock ROM and using ODIN 3.07, flash-installed my phone with ease, just like snapping my fingers. BIG THANKS guys and keep sharing this kind of good work.

  8. If after 10 minutes it still hasn’t loaded, you still see the Samsung logo then do the following:
    Reboot the phone into Recovery Mode by holding down Power, Menu and Volume Up and scroll down to ‘wipe data/factory reset’, and select it. Reboot the phone and hopefully you should be good to go this time. This trick worked for me

    1. Hi Pradeep,
      Just restart the phone in download mode, connect to pc and install the stock firmware using ODIN. You can download the firmware from sammobile~com

  12. My SGH889 from Tmobile does not respond to pressing of any button, all it does is flash screen back light and stay off.
    The battery is fully charged (I checked with a multimeter), and the charge logo does not show when I connected a charger.

    How can I flashed it with Odin?

  13. Having search almost all over the net for stock Note2 Verizon kitkat, i just resisted to say keep it up. thanks so much.

  14. Thank you! This fixed my problem completely. I am now able to check for software updates for my galaxy note 2-sch-i605

  15. When I click on the start button, it runs for a while and then shows up a message said that(success 0/ failed 1) and then it says there is not pit partition. Can anyone help me with this problem?

  16. Nice post. I had a problem with Galaxy Note 4. Its charging rate was very slow. On the forum, I found the solution that I needed to flash my phone. Further, there was a problem with finding the official firmware, I spent a long time searching for a source where I could download what I needed. So I want to recommend you a site with excellent firmness and a large selection of firmware.
