I have the galaxy mega, no root, no recovery, nothing...during the stock upgrade the phone has disconnected from wifi and he rebooted but doesen't power on only the display is barely illuminated, if i power the device in the download mode, start the upgrade of system from 0% to 100% them after he rebooted but the phone is in the same mode as before namely he doesen't power on. How can i do to restore it?

All I asked is if you can. I dont even understand your response. You do volume up instead of down when booting to recovery.

OK, well it appears you have been using kies. At this point you need to download Odin and flash a full factory image from samsung-updates.com

You need to do a search for that. I'm not going to retype what many guides have been made for. You may find a better guide in the Samsung galaxy S4 forums. You will need the drivers and Odin provided on one of those guide threads, plus the newest 4.4.2 factory image for your region.
