    Could not do normal boot (Odin Mode) error - Need Help

    My Note 3 - LTE (SM-N9005) screen got stuck after trying to flash the ROM through ODIN. I was on 4.3 and tried to update my phone to KK 4.4. Every time the phone turns ON, it shows the same screen and I can't use it.

    I am unable to go to Recovery mode by pressing (Vol UP+Home+Power) buttons but able to go to Downloading mode by pressing (Vol Down+Home+Power).

    Can someone here please help me resolve this issue?

    Did you try reinstalling your firmware as suggested on another forum?

    Perhaps it is that you are not giving much information.
    For example. what lead up to the issue.
    You have tripped Knox, so trying to install KitKat did not cause the problem.
    A little bit of history would be useful.

    Ok, need to get on.
    Looks like you have corrupted your boot.img file.
    Flash this firmware with this PIT file.

    Thanks greenman for replying back and helping out.

    I've already used the same PIT file with this firmware "N9005XXUENB7_N9005DBTENB2_N9005XXUENB1_HOME.tar.m d5" but I am still stuck on the same screen.

    Do you still want me to download the suggested firmware and try it out with the PIT file?

    I've tried other firmwares as well but no luck. Please help me out with your experience since I am new to this and attempting to upgrade the firmware for the very first time. I must have made a silly mistake which need to be identified to fix this issue.[/QUOTE]

    Flash gets completed, phone restarts & Odin gives the PASS message but the phone failed to reboot correctly and gives the same error message "Could not do normal boot" and remains on the same Downloading screen.

    I've tried 3 different versions of Odin3 v1.85, 307 & 309 but result is the same

    Let me know what other information should I provide you to understand the root cause of the issue and be able to help out.

    thank you.

    Indeed very disappointing !!!!

    I've tried "n9005-cwm-recovery-6.0.4.7-kk(0125)" using Odin v3.09 and it gave me "FAIL" message while on phone

    screen it showed "SECURE CHECK FAIL [FMM] : cache"

    logs :

    <ID:0/027>
    <ID:0/027> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)



    I then tried "hlte-cwm-recovery-6.0.5.0-kk(0806)" and it gave me "FAIL" as well and on phone the message was

    "SECURE CHECK FAIL : recovery"

    logs :

    <ID:0/027> Added!!

    <ID:0/027>
    <ID:0/027> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    What to do now?

    Just spotted that in Odin Mode you have Reactivation Lock: On.
    This is preventing reactivation after a reset.
    The reactivation lock is good for detering theft, but bad for you as it is blocking your firmware install.
    See here:

    I do not know a way round this, and so you may need to take to a service centre.
