I bricked S4, sort of, please help.
I did some search, but could not find a thread. Please forgive me if I missed something.
I got a MK2 S4 recently, rooted it use saferoot. Then enabled tethering. But today I somehow read a thread about "nobloat free". So I installed it, disabled some apps like "ATT navigator" etc. I guess, I disabled something I should not. So when I reboot the phone, I got a unlock icon (the initial B/W screen) and "custom" under it. Then it would stuck on ATT logo.
I entered recovery mode, did factory reset, it still shows "custom", but finally, it start to initialize the phone. I could setup items such as language, wifi, google acct etc. But eventually it would say failed to initialize the phone. The short press of home button won't work, I could not get the home page with widgets. But I can pull down the info page, enter settings from there. I can receive the phone call, can change some settings there, long press for multi-tasking works, but that's it.
I tried Kies, but it says I am running a custom firmware and I cannot initialize and reinstall firmware from there.
If I can launch noBloat Free, then I can enable those I disabled...
Hi, Thanks for replies! I did managed to go to google search, searched play store from there, then installed "noBloat Free" and enabled those I disabled before. Then rebooted. It works fine now. Thanks a lot!
Please help and thank you.
