Hi Kris,

I just performed a fabric reset by the menu option on my Note 2, this phone has a little history, it is a mexican phone that was manipulated to be unlocked, not sure on how got unlocked, but since unlock network use was terrible, it only worked on H or E newtworks, when we arrived to US, I bought a T-mobile sim card and it worked, but still network use was horrible, so I decided to try to remove whatever was made on the phone while unlocking it and fabric reset it. Now after doing it, I'm facing a problem, phone is not restarting, it stays in the samsung screen and doesn't complete restart process, I have already removed battery and restarted again, but same thing happen, can you please help me? what can I do to get it working?

This look a buggy software, Re-flash your phone with ODIn.

Remvoe the battery for 10 min and put it back then try again
Try safe mode ..

if you can't enter the recovery mode, then your phone might be soft bricked ..
try reflashing

I want to reset my phone because I could not connect to my laptop. I tried all the suggestions i could find online but nothing worked. So I thought maybe a reset might do the trick. Now my problem is how do make a backup of 8GB data stored in my phone when I could not connect to my laptop in the first place. Help please.
