I have an i337 NC1 build Galaxy S4 (AT&T). I'm totally new to custom roming, but I wanted to give it a shot for fun. I tried using towelroot along with SuperSu, and TWRP Manager to flash TWRP onto my phone because it supposedly worked on NC1. Apparently I did something wrong because I no longer have a recovery mode. It just gives the downloading/target screen when I try to access it. Am I screwed or is there some possible way for me to fix this? Thanks!

Tried using ODIN to flash a recovery (TWRP for example) through download mode?

Example, google up: odin twrp recovery I9505

Also, using volume up or down to enter recovery mode?

You can't just install a recovery just like that because at&t has a locked bootloader. You will probably need something like safestrap.

Go to the proper forum for help.

That's a completely different problem. Sounds more like a hardware failure. But you should make your own thread with way more information if you want people to take a closer look.

Ah, right. Forgot about AT&T not exactly being so customize friendly, unlike the non-AT&T phones. Scratch what I said in my above post. AT&T phones have more restrictions (security) when it comes to flashing, etc. Use the link above and make sure you find a proper thread that will help you out.
