    need your professional help.
    well, i have N7100 which is soft bricked and it seems it have lost partitions.
    it stays on first samsung logo always


    CWM recovery is installed.
    i can goto recovery
    i can goto Download Mode
    my recovery Shows:
    Can't open /cache/recovery/log
    Can't open /cache/recovery/log
    Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
    Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
    i tried flashing 3 different recoveries one by one by odin 3.7 with no errors. but after reboot it stays on the same CWM recovery 6.0.4 and

    giving same error
    I tried installing Custom rom from CWM Recovery from External SD card
    i cannot mount local SDcard also
    if i try to format data or format cache it reboots
    i tried one recovery package with pit file but if i check partition, odin fails and says PIT file not there
    else i tried 4.1.2 stock & 4.3 Stock
    i even tried to odin Stock recovery but no success

    now i ran through this forum but the Recovery link is not working due to banned Hotfile.
    could you please help me out and upload a new link or any advise please.

    i ll be grateful

    I'm assuming you have an international version, I will move this to the root section, for better and proper support, if your phone in not international, simply send me a PM and I will move it to the correct section. ;)

    Try Philz's v5.15.0 and flash via Odin. Then reboot into recovery and format data, internal SD, cache and system and preload > reboot into recovery and flash your chosen ROM via sideload (adb) or a Nandroid from your external SD.

    Ihad trouble with other and more up-to-date recoveries too, but this particular one worked for me.

    Use the 6.04 recovery to format your device completely and I mean everything! Then go to download mode and flash the recovery I mentioned before. I've done it as I had the same issue changing from a KK 4.4 ROM back to TW JB 4.3.

    You just need to be persistent and do not let the device reboot into system. You must catch it in recovery mode after flashing Philz 5.15.0 - instead of rebooting use VOl up + power button + home button until screen goes off and keep them pressed until you first see the Samsung logo then let go which will send you back into your newly flashed recovery, then sideload your ROM via adb.
