[Q] Help getting back to bone stock
I need some help getting an AT&T S4 back to stock. I tried rooting it and installing a custom ROM but things took a bad turn and now I'm stuck. The device is MK2 so I rooted the phone following the instructions in the ULTIMATE HOW-TO thread using Saferoot, then I used Safestrap to successfully install Recovery. Everything was good up to here. I tried to install a ROM that I later found out was unsupported onto the Stock slot in Safestrap. After realizing my mistakes I tried to put a supported ROM into Slot 1 on safestrap and that still failed. No matter what it will just boot loop. I tried fully wiping both slots and in the process lost my custom recovery.
Now I am to the point of just going back to stock, the phone is going to be sold anyways. I followed this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261573
Downloaded ODIN and factory image but when I try to flash it with ODIN it comes up FAIL! within a few seconds. It gets as far as NAND Write Start!! then it fails out.
Please tell me I'm not hosed and bricked the device. I'm not new to this either, had several Galaxy phones for years but switch to Windows Phone a few months ago and am a little rusty with this stuff.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
