Root failure - Firmware upgrade encountered an issue


Trying to root Samsung Galaxy Note 3 using Kingo Root failed. The phone doesn't boot and only displays following message when turned on:

Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

Recovery attempt in Samsung Kies failed. Re-flash full Samsung firmware via Odin also failed.


The issue was resolved by re-flashing Samsung Recovery image via Odin.
