    Flashing though ODIN is failing with error as NAND write failure.
    Cant go to recovery mode.
    Installed firmware type is N7000DDLSC_N7000ODDLSC_N7000DDLS6_HOME.

    Any way to fix the recovery mode ?

      Dont worry. Dont have to fix the recovery mode. Take the battery out. Put it back after few seconds. Change the usb port. Try again, it will work
