Question [Q] Process crash endless loop

I just got my S4 19505
I rooted it, Installed CWM,Did a backup and tried to install CM kitkat.
Got a dead phone.
Read Here and installed stock firmware.
After boot I'm in gaps process crash loop.
I can't follow any advice in forums, because of the crash notification I can't change nothing in my phone settings.
I can't wipe data because from some reason I can't boot to recovery mode.
All I have is loading mode,I tried reinstall firmware,reinstall CWM.

I searched for a way to wipe data using Odin..

Can any please help
Sorry for my broken English.

So you can't boot into the OS at all anymore? Cause if you can at least get into the OS you can use adb to terminate the the crashed app if it still rooted. And are you certain you can no longer get to recovery? I've already made the mistake of not having the volume up button fully depressed.

Thank you for your reply.
After flashing stock firmware I lost root.
I can log into android OS, But because of the annoying popular I have no chance to change nothing.
As for adb you mentioned , it is something I need to learn. From the little I know, It won't help me without root.

Thank you very much.

Hold the volume up button while its booting. it should get you to recovery.

I manged somehow to install stock firmware again.

Root: CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505

CWM: i9505-cwm-recovery-6.0.3.2(0611): http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...0&d=1370946022

But again I can only boot from my OS (e.g. Quick Reboot), but not by Volume UP.

This is big problem for if, because after each mistake in try to update ROM (I'm trying to update to 4.4.2 CM 11), in order wipe I need to re-install the stock firmware.

Thx
Boaz

It's actually never been home and volume up for the s4. I too was fooled by this. I guess since the s3 behaved this way someone tried it on the s4 and it worked... but I never ever needed home button pressed to boot to recovery with volume up glad everything is sorted out for ya!
