I also tried the non-t-mobile version... same result
Right now I went back to stock with odin with this file:
Please help, I don't understand why it won't work...
EDIT maybe this can help:
Next time flash a real rom.
Any roms you find here in XDA which are not based on the Samsung Galaxy
S4 Jellybean 4.2.2 or 4.3 Touchwiz firmware are experimental. (some more than others)
Once you get the Danvdh - Google Edition AOSP rom to boot properly you
will find yourself right back here in the Q&A thread with a lot of other issues.
If you want that rom to fully boot, try this:
(hopefully you have a nandroid backup of a working rom)
Go into recovery and and do a "factory reset" and don't select "Reboot"
instead unplug the usb cable and manually power down the phone using
a long press of the power button.
Once it's powered down power it back up and it should now fully boot.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
