Hi and thanks for your help,
I am a newbie to this rooting thing, have done a lot of research. I previously posted in another forum and they directed me here. I have read many posts but still the answer eludes me.
I am upgrading my phone which has allowed me to experiment with my former phone: Samsung Note 2, SCH-1605, Android V 4.4.2 (Verizon) and started playing with rooting. I have used Odin 3.07 to attempt to root the phone, but it fails each time at the NAND Write function. There are a lot of threads on this and one suggestion is to use a higher version of Odin. I see 3.09 is available but the button options are different. Specifically, in 3.07, the button PDF is supposed to be used. There is no such button in 3.09. Fortunately, it reboots fine so I am not even soft-bricked on this phone. But I WOULD like to experiment with it.
Is Odin specific to each phone? And, is there a solution for this problem? I have no KIES running or even installed.
Any counsel would be appreciated.
