Hey guys..

My phone is stuck at the "Samsung Galaxy S4" screen" where it shows just the letters.

The last thing I remember doing was using taskiller and phone's memory killer to kill memory because it was slow... and when I tried to open up text messages, it wouldn't open.
So I restarted the phone and now it's stuck at the "Samsung Galaxy S4" Screen.
( I also removed some apps days before.. but I had rebooted and phone it was working just fine).

- I haven't tried to reinstall a radio.. I woudn't know which one.
- I can access odin just fine by clicking the 3 keys.
- I Can't access TWRP Recovery. I held the 3 keys, and it shows the message on the left corner like it's going to go, but then just reboots and gets stuck on samsung screen.
Tried to reinstall it, but didn't seem to work I guess.. since it still shows the left corner message, but doesnt go to twrp.


Details about my phone:
SGS4 Rooted.
Rom, Custom Stock Rom.. Jedi S4X ( URL of ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2331942 )

What Can I do?
I dont care what I have to install/remove, but I have very important things on the phone that I CANT have deleted!

HELP ME ??

Can you reflash the recovery using Odin? If so do that and if necessary reinstall the room your running.

When you boot into TWRP, hold the 3 keys and when you feel the phone vibrate, let go of the power key and remain holding Vol down and home key until the boot screen pops up.

Let me know if this worked

Boot into Recovery - ( turn off the phone, then hold volume up and press power so it goes on.)

Then when the small blue word comes on at the top left of the screen, let go of the volume button.

when the recovery menu comes up, scroll using the volume button to find factory reset.

when you see that, press the power button once. the phone will boot and do some things and hopefully it will boot up again.

It should be just like when you turned the phone for the first time when it was brand new.

You will have to install any apps you had installed. Do not worry, if you paid for any apps, you can download them again without paying again.

let us know if this helps!

Good Luck and Aloha!

If above doesn't work... Odin stock.

Out of curiosity, why are you holding power+HOME+volume up/down? Just wanted to throw it in there that there is no need to hold the home button when accessing recovery or download mode. Simply pressing Power+Volume up/down should be sufficient. Also, as someone else pointed out, just release power when you feel the vibrate and once you see "Recovery booting" in the top left-hand corner, let go of the volume key.

Also, if you're still unable to access recovery after all that; I'd recommend using Odin to flash the stock image, boot up, then use Odin to flash whatever recovery you want.
