    I rooted on VRUAME7 I am now trying to do a reset/restore. When I did a factory reset in the system, it rebooted and is now stuck on a yellow exclamation mark and says:

    "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recover mode in Kies & try again."

    I downloaded the Stock Restore and followed a guide to restore using Odin.

    Odin Failed and says:
    <ID:0/005> Added!!

    <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..

    Phone says:
    Start [224,1440]
    SW REV. CHECK FAIL: FOUND: 3, Binary: 1


    1.)How to I charge it (connecting to charger after battery pull immediately starts the phone and pulls up the Yellow Exclamation.)?

    2.)How do I unroot and restore this back to factory?

    you can force it to turn off by taking off the battery, but if you charge it, it'll turn on... sorry i can't help you with with unroot restore... would've told you to follow the link which you did do.

    I am having the same exact issue as the original poster. I have tried many things including what he said fixed his. I downloaded Odin and it came with 6 folders with an executable inside each one. They are v1.83, v1.85, v3.04, v3.06, v3.07 and c3.09. When running v3.09 it will reference a com port but does not change colors like I have read it should. When running v1.83 it turns yellow. But either way the result is the same.

    I have rooted my Note 2 and my old Thuderbolt and they were simple... this is making me nervous that I have bricked my wife's phone.
