In February I purchased an ex-display model Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 from the PB Technologies Trademe store. It has worked perfectly for me for months, but lately it has been getting cluttered, so I decided I wanted to restore it so it feels fresh again. I went ahead and backed up my photos, contacts etc on my pc and sim respectively, then hit the Factory Restore button.
Then everything went wrong. The phone turned off to restore, but when it went back to the "Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100" black screen, it started to flicker and wave then turned off. My heart skipped a few hundred beats. I am extremely protective of my phone and the thought that I might have ruined it for a moment scard me.
I went into recovery mode by pressing the home/power/volume down buttons, then pressed up when prompted by the Warning! screen. It is now in Odin Mode, telling me the product name (GT-N7100), then "Custom Binary Download: Yes (7 Counts)", "Current Binary: Custom", and "System Status: Custom". This means the phone was rooted, correct? It may seem ignorant, but I honestly had no idea. The icons of the root apps (or whatever they are called) probably got lost in the ton of stock apps I hide away.
Please, tell me what I can do to fix this. Can I flash a new custom firmware with Odin? Or perhaps flash the stock rom? I had a look for the New Zealand stock rom for the GT-N7100 but couldn't find anything. If either, can someone point out one I can use?
I contacted PB but this happened in the last few hours after closing time, so I don't expect a reply from them yet.
Please, if there is anyone out there who can help, you will be doing me an favor. I am so nervous and quite frankly scared about what I have done, I feel extremely foolish but if there is anything I can do, I will do it.
