Recently tried flashing a ROM on my verizon galaxy s4 with goo manager. It had gotten suck on the "downloading" screen while booting into recovery. I figured out how to get out of that and uninstalled goo manager. Now each time I try to factory reset or update, whenever the phone turns off to reset, it somehow boots into the Downloading/Odin mode and gets stuck... even though goomanager is long deleted. Any help would be fantastic.

Do you know what ROM/baseband you were on prior to trying to flash a ROM? Were you rooted already, or did you try to install over stock? Are you familiar with Odin?

This may help depending on your answers to the above: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL8Xw...ature=youtu.be

I am currently on 4.3 and I have MK2. I am trying to reset my phone to remove all the **** I did to it and I am planning on updating after the reset.


To answer the second question, I am very unfamiliar with flashing and modding phones. I did root it though. I just want to be able to reset it to factory without these interferences.

Use the full wipe as shown in the youtube linked above.

Files and directions are here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2578209

Don't use goomanager on your S4 in the future, it only works on the original build.

you need to research before you attempt to do stuff......you can't use goomanger at all with your baseband. The only way to load any custom rom is thru safestrap and you are limited to safestrap compatible roms only.
