    Dear Support, Guys, Anyone who can help with steps on my Mega 6.3 i9205 LTE, flashing official rom via Odin will be very thankful for the replies and help .
    1. Phone had custom rom 4.2.2 installed and philz_touch recovery.
    2. Erased dalvik, cache, factory reset phone via philz_touch recovery before flashing official rom.
    3. Downloaded I9205XXUDOA1_I9205BTUDOA1_I9205XXUDOA1_HOME.tar.md5 and lovely installed it from fresh, using odin 3.07.
    4. Phone is fully flashed now but stuck on Samsung boot screen logo and (blue) recovery booting notice. Does not go any further. Waited 30 min and nothing.
    5. Phone does not go to official recovery. if i flash philz_touch recovery , i have custom recovery back.

    Please let me know how to proceed any further to have official 4.4.2 rom installed on this device.
    Appreciate all your help guys

    Hello!
    I assume you got the firmware from Sammobile?
    Did ODIN say the flash was successful?

    Perhaps try to flash the firmware again?
    Can you boot into download mode to do so?

    Is the option in ODIN to reboot "checked"?
    Run the program again, and leave that option UNchecked.
    After the program runs again, unplug the device, and then boot into recovery. (you'll still be in download mode, but use the button combo to boot into recovery as if the device was off)...does that make sense?

    It does make sense, of course. Thank you.
    1. I have unchecked REBOOT in Odin
    2. Run download mode in MEGA phone
    3. Connected to PC and reflashed firmware again
    4. Flashed just fine like always
    5. I have disconnected phone after and still had download mode on phone screen.
    6. Hold ( UP + Home + Power ) buttons to enter official recovery
    7. Phone starts , Recovery booting ........ stuck again on the same screen

    did i follow your steps correctly? Thank you

    Yeah, I thought that would do the trick, sorry.
    Hmmm, what about a fresh download of the firmware?

    Seems like everything is working except when you reboot :thinking:

    So it keeps rebooting between recovery and the boot up screen? over and over again?

    Hi, there was nothing wrong with download, perfect firmware flashed. There must be something wrong with previous custom firmware and root. Phone does not reboot, it just stays on the same screen after flashing, that is it. I have added few photos for you

    From what I can tell, Knox has been tripped. More than likely when you installed the custom recovery, but that's part of the "known", when rooting etc.
    More about Knox here.

    When you say you restored a backup, do you mean a nandroid backup? What recovery do you have?--Philz?

    Yes, but it has security block. Impossible to use it. It also blocks wi-fi connection , need to update to official 4.4.2 .

    Hmmmm, I'm running out of ideas here. :( So unless someone can come up with a better solution, perhaps we need to find a way to disable Knox.
