Default Unrooted S4 & can't reboot - Help please

Hi guys

Some help please.

I am returning my s4 to stock due to a dodgy home button and I have run triangle away, flashed a stock ROM

the current binary is Samsung Official &
System Status is Official.

All the counters are set to 0x0

which is great.

The problem is the phone does not boot, it stays stuck at the boot screen.

I've tried to boot into the official recovery to reformat the phone, but I can;t get into the recovery either.

Any help is appreciated!

Cheers

Current Device:
HTC One - Silver

Coming from a:
Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 - Black Mist

Hi,

The way I get into recovery is:
1.remove the battery
2.replace the battery
3.hold volume up + power button
4.as soon as you see the blue writing in the top corner , let go of everything and tap the volume down button.

- Point n° 3 procedure IS ONLY FOR I9505 (qualcomm)
in case of I9500 (sammy core) the 3 buttons combo is the only way to get recovery or downlad mode.
The Op didn't state about his S4 model.
