    HARDBRICK WARNING for N7000: ICS Leaks and Recovery

    IF YOU MISS IT, THIS IS THE ANNOUNCEMENT

    DO NOT FLASH OR WIPE USING ANY ICS LEAK REPACK

    Entropy512
    (Elite Recognized Developer@XDA)

    Original Thread:
    Public Service Announcement



    These kernels (ICS Leak Repack) are fundamentally dangerous. Samsung introduced some sort of bug in the eMMC driver that can permanently damage the eMMC flash storage of the phone.


    Kernels that have been confirmed affected are:
    All ICS leaks for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch (SPH-D710)
    All ICS leaks for the Samsung Galaxy Note (GT-N7000)
    UCLD3 ICS leak for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II (SGH-I777) - Other leaks may also be affected
    Kernels built using the most recent SHW-M250S/K/L official source code release as of May 3, 2012 - This includes SiyahKernel 3.1rc6 for GT-I9100 (all other Siyah releases are safe)


    Damage is not guaranteed - it may only affect percentage of users of hardbricking due to kernel bugs in safe kernels.


    Kernels that have been confirmed safe:
    All known Gingerbread kernels for the Galaxy Note and other affected devices listed above
    Kernels built from the GT-I9100 Update4 source code release - this includes XplodWILD's CM9 release and my DAFUQ release.


    If you are running an affected kernel:
    STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. FLASH A SAFE KERNEL USING ODIN/HEIMDALL.
    DO NOT wipe in recovery
    DO NOT flash anything else in recovery
    In general, DO NOT use recovery at all


    Right now, what we know:
    Some people can wipe with affected kernels without problems. Just because you didn't brick, DO NOT advise other users that they will be OK.

    Based on reports from the Epic 4G Touch community;
    - some people can wipe/flash 20-30 times before hardbricking.
    - Just because you didn't brick once, DO NOT continue flashing with an affected kernel.


    The source of the problem is somewhere within the changes between I9100 Update4 and SHW-M250S Update5


    What we don't know:
    Exactly which source commit above is responsible
    How to determine if a future kernel or source release is safe without putting user's devices at risk - You only need to reproduce the problem once to be hosed.



    Good Luck & Happy Flashing

    ALL YOU DO IS AT YOUR OWN RISK

    Hardbrick mean your phone totally dead.
    Blank screen..you cannot do anything.
    Solution: Replace the motherboard of your phone or buy new phone.

    this thread sounds scary but I don;t understand a word of it.
    If you dont understand..my sincere advice, to stay away from rooting and flashing/install of customise ICS firmware that not come from Samsung Officially.

    PS: Kernel actually lots need to explain.
    To make it very simple to understand, it is software that communicate between your phone hardware and software.
