I don't have an SD CARD and the android version was 4.4.2 before the brick. i tried using kingo root which rooted the verizon version on my at&t phone and then I uninstalled some bloatware with an app and when I closed the app, the top bar started to flicker and then it closed. I have not found any posts with my situation and I'm beginning to think I'm SOL. Posts have told me that my phone cannot be downgraded because you can't use a lower android version and other posts say you need an SD card. I'm able to get to the download mode and factory reset page.
The phone even boots onto the home screen for the wizard guide, but when it gets to google services it says the wizard has stopped. I'm able to mess around with a few things like the settings/camera but there are no apps.
Will someone tell me if there is any hope. There are so many tutorials out there, but I have yet to find a clear one for my situation.
