Is there a way to download the older version where the update that caused the problem is no longer the device works and I want to download now located on the device

If you connect to Kies, and use Tools > Firmware Upgrade and initialization, Kies may install the latest firmware.

Kies is not always co-operative and may not initialize.

If Kies does not initialize then use Odin to reinstall the latest firmware.

I see this may be in the wrong section, but I have the same issue as the op. (SM-T217A)

I tried all of the above already (keis and odin) with the 4.2.2 firmware from that failed screen, and from download mode.
Failed each time. I assume enough of 4.4.2 was installed and from what I've read, once you upgrade to 4.4.2 with knox/ locked bootloader you can't go back to the old 4.2.2 firmware.

In the end I had to just take the back off and pull the battery because when I powered down it would load itself back to the failed firmware upgrade screen.

My question is will the locked bootloader/ knox even let me re-flash the 4.4.2 if/when we get access to the firmware?

Looks like the 4.4.2 has different partition sizes or something. Update to 4.4.2 caused all sorts of conflicts with my every-day uses, and made my rooted apps useless. Tried to downgrade to 4.2.2 through an ODIN flash and system.ext4 fails at 95-99% every time. I can't find a partition table (PIT) for the 4.2.2 to confirm my suspicions. Talked to 2 AT&T providers, and 2 Best Buy (Geek Squad). Neither can do anything about it. Looks like the only option is to send it in to Samsung later this week to restore it to 4.4.2 (they mentioned they might not be able to restore 4.2.2, but would put it in the repair notes in case they can).

a 4.4.2 version of the firmware will work if flashed through odin, does anyone have a backup of the OTA UPDATE????????????? i had the same exact problem with my note ii, its the new knoks kernel!!!!!!!!! you cant downgrade if you have root and probably not w/o ether. I, prob like many of you need a stock image. i have read that a lollypop version for T217A will be rolling out. IF IT DOES SOMEBODY BACKUP THE STOCK IMAGE.

If Auth fail is in Odin then the most likely reason is that you are trying to downgrade your current firmware.

However it can also be a processing fault so check:
1. You are using an original quality USB cable and not a thinner charging cable.
2. You are connecting directly to the PC usb port and not through a USB hub.
3. Try another USB port.
4. Make sure that SmartSwitch is not running when using Odin.
5. Try another Odin version.

Sorry, AT&T do not appear to have released the firmware.
