Default How much does it cost to replace motherboard on Galaxy Note?

The device is hard-bricked, the internal memory is damaged. Does anyone know an approximate cost to replace the motherboard (or just the eMMC chip?)?

Your Note is still under warranty, do I don't understand why you are asking this question?

I wouldn't have asked this question if my device was under warranty. Thank you for your "useful" advice..

If you had made that clear in the first place I wouldn't have posted. Why isn't it under warranty? The Note is so new that none are a year old yet.

The device was hard-bricked by rooting and flashing a bad ROM which voids warranty. But I managed to unbrick my Note after all...! :-)

So you THOUGHT it was 'hard' bricked, but in fact it wasn't.

Hi, I followed these steps and it really worked:

You can flash a stock ICS ROM instead of the Gingerbread. If you will root the ICS, you will really have to avoid wiping data in CWM.

If a note is truly hard bricked then the service centre won't be able to tell why and will replace under warranty anyway

I apologize for resurrecting this thread from the dead, But your view is unusual.It's one I want to make sure I follow because I am sending my phone back for repair and I want to make sure it's infinitely bricked. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to break it, if I can fix it I would. But upon resetting my SGH-I777 After it froze it said something about encryption stopped, and then the Phone going first second and then turned blackscreened. No reboot commands from the cheese combinations wono I cannot get it into any of the movements that would even allow me to go into ODIN and load in software. When you turn it on without anything new battery symbol even appears, Nothing, zilch.

Anything else I can try to make sure this is truly dead?

The only reason I say this is because I did have Custom firmware on there. It's better if it's really bricked because then I also know that certain information cannot be/will not be accessed. So it protects me from being told that my phone cannot be exchanged, and it protects my data that I don't want access. So help me insure my phone is dead, or help me bring it back to life.

I've tried all the key combinations, New batteries, Without batteries, What's out sim card, sd card, In each of these combos we're made sense I did the key combinations. Connect to a computer. Computer did not recognize it.

thoughts?

Sorry for the delay in replying. This is (from what I have learned) correct. Samsung are aware of the emmc brick bug being triggered on stock firmware from factory resets. Take phone to service centre, say you factory reset (from settings menu on ICS) and take it from there. If they can resurrect the phone and have a look, worst case is that they refuse the warranty claim. You will be in the same situatuion i.e. dead phone in need of repair.

Definately worth a shot as it has worked for others.
