Hey guys,

I tried installing a custom recovery on my Verizon s4. I can get the phone in download mode but nothing past that.
I have tried installing a new custom recovery using the latest version of Odin but I keep getting an error on the phone that says
"SECURE MAGICCODE CHECK FAIL: recovery" or
"SECURE MAGICCODE CHECK FAIL: boot"

I'm open to ANY option at this point? Seems like odin won't let me install ANYTHING because of these errors.

Suggestions please!

Thanks in advance.

What build were you on? If it was anything after MDK, you can't install a custom recovery. Only Safestrap.
If you know what build you were on, you could try flashing a full wipe tar file with Odin.
