My phone S4 sprint
newest cyanogenmod 11 nightlies

So heres the problem

phone started off not making or receiving calls which was weird because i still go data 4g LTE... so i read somewhere that i have to go back to stock and update my PRL or something...im not sure whats its called but i would know what to do once I'm on the stock rom... but anyway thats not the main problem anymore. my main problem is when i tried to go back to stock with mobile odin my device did go to the last step that odin need to do it , which was to boot back up in stock recovery... so now my phone doesn't not boot at all.. I'm only able to get in in download mode i really need phone i tried taking it to to the sprint they are trying to say its water damaged which i know its not

Maybe its because i was on android 4.4. and i was try to go down to stock 4.2 or what it is

If you can get into download mode, go to a PC download the tar file and Odin it through your computer.

Boot your phone into download mode, look at the lines of text in the top left corner. If you see anything that mentions knox warranty then you were on MJA or MK2 and need to download either of those tar files, If you don't see anything that mentions knox warranty then you were on MF9 or older and you can download the MF9 tar to avoid the knox bootloader. If you do need the MK2 tar, here is the best download of the tar: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2601443
