    I had a similar problem. I rooted my Note 2 via Casual "NoYouVerizon" and it worked great. However, when attempting to return to stock rom (found: ) Odin says is was successful, but it never rebooted the phone. Now when I boot up the phone I get a flashing "Samsung Galaxy Note II" over and over. I cannot get back into recovery because I keep getting stuck at the flashing Samsung logo. I tried flashing CMW and another version of the stock rom to no avail. Could someone please help me?

    Can you get into download mode? That's what you need to be in in order for Odin to work, and as long as you can you are not bricked.

    That is not a brick, it's a boot loop. Boot into download mode and flash stock as previously stated and you'll be fine.

    A brick is where you're phone is completely unusable and it won't even turn on. As long as you can get into download mode you're fine.

    Yes, I can get it into Download Mode (that's the only thing into which I can get it. Lol). And Odin does indeed recognize my device, but every time I try to flash Odin fails. I'm not sure what to do from here. Odin fails everything with which I try to flash. I cannot even get back into stock. Please help.

    As which point does Odin fail? Please be as specific as possible. Also are you using the Odin file specific to your device. You can get them from Samsungs website.

    I got it fixed. I had to flash stock WITH the pit file. Now it's working just fine. I'm going to attempt installing Jedi VX14 or Beans. Do you have a preference on which one I should install? Also, I've learned not to use Odin one the phone is unlocked. Thanks.

    How do you flash Odin with a pit file, where do you get the pit file? I have the same problem but I don't have a file that will work? Please help!

    Revert to stock by flashing the stock firmware. This would unbrick your device.
