Default [GUIDE] How to Enter ODIN and Recovery Modes on Verizon Galaxy S4

Not sure if this is the proper section for this but thought I would post this here as I'm sure it would highly assist people in development and other tasks. This is the button combinations you need to enter each mode.

ODIN/Download Mode
  • Make sure your device is completely off
  • Key(s): Volume Down
  • While holding this key down simultaneously press the Power button until you see a disclaimer on the screen
  • Then let go of both buttons and press Volume Up to accept the disclaimer
  • Once the green robot is visible on the screen this indicates that handset is in now ODIN/Download mode
Recovery Mode
  • Make sure your device is completely off
  • Key(s): Volume Up
  • While holding this key down simultaneously press the Power button
  • As soon as the phone vibrates, let go of the Power button but keep holding Volume Up
  • When you see the "Samsung Galaxy S4" logo (not just the word "Samsung"), right after that, the next screen you should see is your recovery
  • Don't let go of Volume Up until you see your recovery

It's not necessary to hold the Home button to boot into Odin mode, the combination for recovery is correct though.

So just power/volume down for Odin and home/volume up/power for recovery

Thanks!
The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.

Default No download mode

I've been trying to get into download mode for days and can't seem to figure it out. I have the Verizon g s4 sch-i545. I've done all of the key combos and even tried some combos + plugging in the USB cable. Nothing is working for me. Any help would be nice. Thanks

I have no problem getting into recovery mode....

Home isn't necessary for recovery either. I just hold power and volume up, when the phone vibrates I let go of power and continue to hold volume up until I see the booting recovery message in the upper left.

Default Moto not working

So I'm having no success with this. I went through all the steps including flashing the pre-release tar ball (MD2). All this went without fail, however once I launched Motochop and pressed enter to root. I get line Daemon not on. run port 5873. Daemon connected or on and then thats it. I don't get a notification at any point prior to me pressing enter or afterwords that I need to accept. It just stops and I get "you should reboot" from the notification bar. Have I done something wrong? I went through all the prior steps several times and I keep getting this error message.

Agreed. Volume up and power for recovery. Volume down and power for odin.
