Hi,

JIG will only work
if you can get at least in Splash Screen, if it doesn't give any life signal, then I get that you can't get into Splash Screen, therefore, JIG won't do the work.

Here's a video showing exactly the same problem I had and a JTAG repair

Hi,

There are people who can do the JTAG work, they charge some money but fix it. Even though it is way cheaper than getting a JTAG interface . Buying a device would be way more expensive, and I think it wouldn't be really worth, like you mentioned .

Guys, I like the talk about JTAG, but I don't think it will do him any good.

His device is not bricked. Xposed only installs in /system/bin (if I am not mistaken). Thus it's impossible to brick it that way. It does nothing to the bootloader, download mode or any other partition.

He has clearly a faulty battery or an other hardware failure. He just had bad luck imo.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v2.6

Are you sure about that? I'll try changing the battery.... But as I said I can't enter download mode or recovery ,both are symptoms of a hard brick....
And any idea where I can find a person with JTAG in Gurgaon(India)?

Sounds like a dead battery. Get your battery charged using an external charger or using a friend's working S4.
