This happened with me too, but my device was not rooted or anything at the time. I just ended up going to Kies 3 and it asked to update, and worked perfectly fine.

If that doesn't work. try finding a stock rom, but other than that, the Kies method should work perfectly fine.

...Yes, but by updating via Kies or from Samsung Mobile Firmware, will it then lock up the phone and prevent
rooting and custom recovery?

I'm not to sure about that, but when my phone had that message, I updated via Kies, and then I could root right after and everything was working fine as can be.

Anyone load the 4.4.2 official from Samsung mobile yet? Did it prevent rooting and custom recovery?

I am having problems with my 7500mah battery (ZeroLemon). Plugged in for 4 hours and it only charged to 75%. The 7000mah on my S3
would fully charge in that time from approximately 10%.

Not happy with my S4 to this point.... Running the Skyfall ROM and the vibration is VERY week....... Anyone??
Suggestions?????

I installed the original 4.4.2 stock Samsung rom. I ****ed something up hard and flashed that rom via Odin and everything seems to be working just fine. Also, I don't think it prevented rooting, as after I installed the stock rom, I rooted again and it worked fine.

Also, custom roms seem to be very buggy on GS4s for some reason. I know on certain roms sound, calling and texting all don't work. But the vibration might be a problem with the rom.
