Hey guys I was recently trying to flash back to stock so that i could carrier unlock my device, but when I was trying to flash using cwm, I kept getting status 7 error, so I read up on that and learned that cwm doesn't like certain roms.
After reading that, I used twrp, which allowed the rom to flash.

Now's where it gets bad..

the rom was booting fine, until i realized it was stuck at the boot animation for about 10 minutes.
I went back to the thread and asked how long it should take on first boot, they said 4 mintues...

I can't get back into recovery mode.. (actually i could never get into recovery mode using hardware bottons, i had to use apps such as ROM Manager)
I'm trying to use odin to flash recovery img, but no dice..

Can someone please tell me what I should do?

You can't go back to stock through recovery. You have to flash the stock image through Odin.

It was a custom touchwiz rom. I thought that was possible.

Could I flash stock through odin in my current situation?

Fash the latest frimware using Odin
Can you get your phone into Download mode? Power whitle holding volume down, if you can then flash CWMR using odin

Download CWMR touch or non touch from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2405433

Doing this help me skip some odin errors from previous failed attempts to flash stock frimwares (I don't know if you're having the same problem)

If you successfully flash CWMrecovery, you should be able to flash official 4.3 firmware(T-Mobile) and put your phone back to stock.

create an account with sam mobile for faster download this download can take 1-4 hours SamMobile was like 20 minutes for me, this is the link for the latest frimware for
(T-mobile SGH-M919 !!! ONLY !!! ) http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=22280

If you can get your phone back to stock this is my advice to you: root your phone right-away so you can reset your flash counter using triangle away.

I suggest the following rooting method is safe, it worked for me and did not affect my flash counter

Safe root --> http://www.w0lfdroid.com/2013/12/Saf...anty-Void.html

use triangle away to reset your flash counter to Zero

Good Luck

Did oyu make a nandroid backup of your stock rom before flashing a custom one?

If so, just restore it.

If not, use Odin.
