    Default Bricked Note 2 After OTA update?

    My brother just tried to download the OTA update and the phone just flashes the Samsung galaxy Note 2 logo at boot up.

    The phone was 100% stock and never rooted. Any ideas on how to fix or why this happened?

    Did it happen once, or every time you power down/up?

    Did you try to pull the battery?

    Is he waiting 5 mins to 9 mins to biit or is he pulling the battery before then?

    If it still won't boot I would go into recovery and do a factory reset and wipe cache and try again to boot.

    If it still doesnt work he can use alternative return to stock file through odin
    Or
    Take it into verizon to get replacement.

    Mine is doing the same thing and I can't get in to recovery. It's volume up + home + power right?

    download the alternative file and try flashing it to stock, but the safer bet would be taking it into Verizon since the device was never rooted

    If it is just flashing right now, what is the harm in trying to install the above?

    I flashed the .pit file through Odin. It unbricked my phone, did not erase any data and the update went through just fine.

    Went to Best Buy with my brother (where he bought his Note 2) and talked with the Samsung kiosk rep there. the guy spent 45 mins trying to figure it out and went through 2 binders full of information and nothing worked. We then went to geek squad to get a new phone through his insurance coverage and they said it will take 7 days to get. Man is he pissed.

    Just the pit file? Not also the alternate restore file or anything else?

    All I flashed was the .pit file. Took a few minutes to reboot initially but it worked fine.

    My phone is also bricked after trying to unlock bootloader with one-click unlocker.

    Odin wont recognize my device. Could I somehow manually set odin to connect to my device?>
