[Q] Stuck cannot get past Download mode
I recently J Tagged my galaxy S4 Verizon and it came back to me with these specs:
ME7 stock Rooted Rom
Safe Strap 3.64 TWPR v 188.8.131.52
Hyperdrive ROM ver 10
I tried to use ODIN to re-flash to stock ROM VRUAMDK_Nowipe_tar_md5. So that I may be able to update to the new Hyperdriver ROM and it didn't turn out as planned.
HERE IS WHAT I DID:
I just turned off the phone.
Installed Samsung drivers on PC
Down loaded the TAR file loaded it in to ODIN and hit PDA and let it do its thing.
I've tried this several times and every times it ends in a FAIL.
I can put the phone into download mode but that it nothing past that.
Some times I get the message to connect it to KIES as it need missing files. I did that too and KIES takes forever to search for the S4 and cannot find it.
The drivers are installed the PC recognizes the phone. But KIES does not.
The guy who J tagged it said that he froze the system apk SDM 1.0 to stop OTA.
Does any one know how to help me get out of this predicament? I would really appreciate the help and guidance.
Thanks in advance!
