I tried installing wanamLite for my S4, but as after I tried to reboot, the phone just vibrates every 6 seconds. the screen doesn't even turn on. I am able to get into download mode but not recovery. I tried to flash the stock tar.md5 with odin, and even though it said it was successful on my PC, my phone still didn't turn on. I tried to do a repartition with the adonis.pit file from the formpage and that didn't work either. as a last resort, i checked the nand erase all and had the same results. the only difference was that on my phone is show that is was erasing user data. my phone still doesn't even go to the recovery screen even though i can get into the download menu easily.

please help

Sorry to say, but you've made a mess of your phone. I think you'll need to look at jtag.

Take it to best buy. They should be able to flash it back to stock.
