Default Bricked S4 on 4.4.2

I've accidently bricked my s4 running 4.4.2 while trying to downgrade it. Are there any working unbrick methods that could help me?

Please reference the section on bricking your phone.

I simply redefine my objectives.

lol. registered 6 years ago but clearly haven't learned anything in that time. It says in big bright red letters what the last 3 digits of the baseband are. NC5 *IS in fact* 4.4.2. That thread covers it. You don't. If you want to hack your cell phone (usually something people can't live without), it's probably a pretty solid idea to read/learn how to do it

Please note that bricking a phone means it is lights, no power, nothing...a brick...and can only be recovered by a jtag.

Just messing up your software and bootlooping is called soft-brick or sponged. Major difference in what can be done.
