    I've never gone back to stock, so I'm not sure exactly how that all looks in the toolkit. Hopefully you're on the right path.

    If you decide to unlock and root again, follow the guides in the stickies above (or just use wug's now that you've got it set up).

    Well basically the way I see it you can get out of this problem by either flashing stock back on or by fastboot boot recovery to temporarily get cwm on there. Then push a ROM and gapps to SD card while in recovery, then flash that ROM after a wipe and you should be straight.

    Problem is if you cant get the drivers / PC set up, you can't do either on PC. I don't really use windows ever so I'm sorry I can't really help there. , macs don't need drivers so .. anyway, if you can get a PC working or a Mac or whatever I'll type out the instructions for ya
    Good luck!

    Just to verify, your phone was powered on into the bootloader when you tried to flash stock and unroot? And you selected the "can't boot up" option for going back to stock?

    Sounds like the drivers should be ok, so in theory this should work for you (though I've never personally done it myself, and I wouldn't have time until a weekend to test it out on my phone).

    I am familar with qbking tutioral that you mentioned earlier in this thread.
    I am not familar with Wug's toolkit tho so since you been going that route I havent posted to this thread ,so as not to confuse the issue.
    But a couple of questions just as a double check that you probably have already done.
    I assume you have USB debugging still checked.
    What version of windows are you using ? XP? ,,Windows 7?

    When you looked in device manager and it showed "android adb device" :
    Was the phone just normally powered on when it showed this or in bootloader mode?
    It should show them same thing in "device manager" regardless as to if your phone is normally powered on or in bootloader mode.

    I fixed it guys. I used a program called Odin. I just typed Samsung gnex Odin stock kernel. I got a lot of in for with that I downloaded the stock kernelthen Odin no drivers needed. Well I did need the USB drivers but I had already done that. So after all the downloading and installing and
    unzipping I just pointed Odin to the 2 files... phone and PDA. It worked like a champ... now I'm thinking of using Odin to flash 4.1.1??? Any tips easy ways to gain full root access? I saved all the files for Odin so if I mess it up again I can fix it easy

    Check these three stickies in this forum:
    Don't Panic Hitchhiker's Guide
    Unlock/Root Guide
    Backup/Restore/Flash Roms

    Read all three in their entirety before starting. It's worth it. They all explain everything you'll need to know.

    On the bright side, you've recovered from about the worst possible scenario. You're very unlikely to mess your phone up worse than that (unless you are deliberately trying to), so you should be ready to go!

    Yeah ODIN is a fairly extreme measure. However, glad you got it resolved .

    Just another quick question. If I root my phone it will not erase anything right? And if I go ahead and flash 4.1 into my phone will that erase anything?

    If you root it will erase everything. Use titanium backup first

    TiBu requires root permissions so it wont work up front. Bit of a catch 22.

    Edit: after the reminder from the post below, I scrolled up to notice you were already unlocked. In that case, nothing should be erased.

    Rooting will not erase everything. It simply gives you full access to everything on your phone. Like being an administrator on a windows machine.

    If you do a "clean" install of a ROM you will lose alot of stuff. Only thing that usually stays is stuff you dl from Google play

    Yes, a clean install of a ROM includes wiping the system completely, which means you lose your stuff. Rooting does not require completely wiping the system, therefore you do not lose stuff when simply rooting. Its two completely different things.
