    Default Unplugged while automated rooting program running

    I have a galaxy note i717 and it was unplugged while an automated unrooting program (kingo android root) was running. Now the phone is stuck at the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue" screen, and Kies won't connect to the phone.

    Is there anything I can do to get the phone working again?

    You should try flashing a stock firmware with Odin and see if that will take. If you could booting download mode then this is possible. Power off the phone then hold volume down plus power on. You should see an option to be in download mode. If not, then there was a major error when the device was pulled while the program was running. Perhaps when the device was being formatted and it didn't complete.

    If that's the case it's likely bricked and can't be reversed.
