    Suggest posting here Samsung Galaxy S3 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com as someone in the S3 forums may have more specific knowledge about the problem. In general are you able to use the phone or is it stuck at the upgrade message?

    I ran into a similar problem last night trying to return my phone to the stock VRALJB software using the instructions in the "Return to 100% Stock" thread (was on the newer software from the recent OTA update). Using any of the firmware listed in that thread or linked at XDA, Odin would always fail at "NAND Write Start" leaving the phone stuck with error "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue". I tried all the troubleshooting steps, but nothing worked. The only thing that did was to use the Stock Rooted ROM firmware in this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...n-w-video.html

    Edit: it's the Root66_VZW_stock_system.7z file. Be sure to unzip it using 7zip then flash it via Odin. After flashing it be sure to follow the last instruction to wipe cache partition.

    Also forgot: you should be able to get the phone back into download mode; first unplug it from the USB cable and ensure it's powered off. Next simultaneously press and hold Volume Down/Home then the power button until you see it say "Warning!!" at the top and a tiny yellow triangle at the bottom. Then press the Volume up button to continue which should take you into download mode where you'll see a green Android. Then you can launch Odin and connect the USB cable and proceed flashing the firmware.
    I have tried this and still can not get it to work. It fails on me still. I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

    My verizon GN2 is stuck in a boot loop. I have flashed 4 different files with Odin that were once stock firmware for my device. I've used 3 different computers, 3 different cables all OEM. Tries all USB ports on all 3 laptops, 2 run winxp and 1 win7. I have tried Odin 1.85/ 3.04/ 3.07. I have tried the files with and w/o pit file. No change, 2 of the files fail, but 2 pass, but even when Odin says pass I'm still in a boot loop, anybody have any ideas, please help if you can, thanks!

    I'm going to put this here in hopes of it helping someone down the road. I solved my problem. The way I fixed my phone was I ran the Vraljb ROM to restore to factory in Odin with the "Nand Erase All" option checked and the pit file.

    Thought I'd let everyone know about my experience as well. I started with the error "Now it shows firmware upgrade encountered an issue please select recovery mode in kies" Tried using Kies but ran into an issue where it complained about not being able to initialize the SCH-I605. I then tried Odin v3.09 and tried a bunch of different stock roms but nothing worked. then tried the root66_VZW_stock_system.tar.md5 but got stuck in a boot loop. Finally downloaded the latest I605VRUEMJ9_I605VZWEMJ9_I605VRUEMJ9_HOME.tar.md5 and used odin to flash using the nand erase all option. It rebooted and went to the Verizon splash screen but now is stuck there. The led is dimming a bit every second or so and the Verizon logo reflection that runs across it so its not totally frozen but not going into the OS. Any ideas? II let it sit for a long time like over an hour and still no luck. Tried multiple boots but still stuck. Also want to mention that I was never rooted and the initial error was during the process of rooting Please help.

    If haven't gotten it yet. Rerun it with a .pit file and do battery pull.

    My problem is when I get a text, the number won't clear after I read the message. I've tried to "Close all and the clear memory buttons and sometimes it will clear but most of the time it stays there. The only thing that will clear it is to restart the phone. Battery pull didn't do the trick either.

    Hello ive been doing this and i get the samsung note 2 logo try to get into menu by pressing vol up and power and home button (simultaneously) and nothing happens the phone just displays logo how long do i need to hold buttons down and i how do i know it has enough charge

    sounds like your battery charge may be low. It's recommended to have it at 50% or higher before attempting to flash firmware. But yes, once you have enough of a charge, you should be able to wipe the cache partition as follows (from the instructions in the thread i linked to previously):

    - with your device off simultaneously press and hold volume up/home/power buttons until you see android system recovery at the top of the screen and a green android laying down with a red triangle above him in the center of the screen.
    - scroll down using the volume down button and highlight "wipe cache partition" and press the power button to select
    - when it says cache wipe complete at the bottom and "reboot system now" is highlight press the power button to reboot and enjoy!

    If you used the stock rooted rom file, then you're rooted. To confirm this, once the phone boots, you'll see super su in the app drawer. You can also use the app root checker to actually confirm root access.

    Whenever I boot my GN2, the logo displays and then the screen goes to black. I can still enter bootloader and download modes. I have flashed the root66 file with odin 3.07. Any suggestions?

    I know this thread is a bit old, but I need some assistance.
    I am trying to just get my Note 2 working (I don't care rooted, stock or what).
    I just pushed root66_VZW_stock_system.tar.md5 to it with Odin 3.09. All went well. When it restarted, its stuck on the dreaded "System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless" message.
    I have tried to follow several threads but no matter what I push to the phone, I eventually end up back at this spot again.
    When I do the volume up / home / power button boot, it just comes up with this Verizon warning again. I can do the volume and push something else though.
    Can someone assist me? What's my next step?

    I used this method it seemed to work. passed odin and all. But when I tried to clear cache a new warning came up. "system sofeware not authorized by Verizon wireless has been found on your phone. please turn off phone and go to the nearest Verizon wireless store for help." What do I do now. besides that.
