    I was using this tutorial:

    I've been trying to downgrade my Note 2 to 4.1.1 so that I can unlock it, but it's taken me a few days to track down the right firmware. It's a Korean phone from Olleh KT model number SHV-E250K. I think that the firmware I downloaded wasn't correct because when Odin was running the bootloader I got a fail message and it froze. I tried running it with firmware for this model but 4.1.2, but it is also failing. Now when I try to turn on the phone it looks like this.

    odin bootloader failed...now what?-20131201_200618.jpg

    Sorry it's sideways. Even though the text is in Korean, the icon warning would be for the same thing in English.

    I didn't backup the firmware or anything because the tutorial didn't tell me I needed to do that. Well it's all pretty dumb on my part but I'm extremely uneducated for this kind of thing. If you can direct me to what I should do to fix this and suggest what steps to take to unlock it correctly that would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Yes, that is the only thing I can make it do.

    Flashing a stock ROM would be the only thing I can think of to do. However, since it is a phone from a different country, it may be difficult to flash a stock ROM to it. Different regions have different file set ups, which is what I think happened to your device.

    Is there a way to extract the stock ROM off another device that is the same model?

    I don't think so.
    If you know the region code of your ROM you might be able to flash it in Odin.

    Under normal circumstances, Kies. In this case, I am unsure.

    When I try to connect it to Kies now it comes up with a connection error. I wonder if it's borked.

    May be a bad download. You can try samsung updates.com.

    It can take several minutes to complete the process.
