Hello everybody,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S4, i9505, withe the Snapdragon 600. It is also the AT&T variant (the i337). I do not know if that matters, but that is the phone. A couple days ago, I rooted it using this method:
I rooted it successfully, and then I tried to install a recovery. I followed the steps listed in this guide.
I did not realize that this was for the international version. That was for the i9500. So after that, the phone went a little crazy. It still works and is not bricked, but some things are different. There is no lock screen anymore. At the home screen, a dialog box pops up and shows some factory device information. When I go to turn it off, it just shuts down when I hold the power button, no dialog. It still works fine, but I want to know how to fix it. I want to see if I could find the original mmcblk0p10 file and somehow push it over. If anyone can proved this file for me, I would be very thankful.
The download mode still shows everything as official. Nothing reads as custom.
I know that I can probably fix this by flashing the recovery image, but I want to try to replace the mmcblk0p10 with the original file and see if it works. I want to learn how to fix it manually, if at all possible.
Thanks in advance.

why do some experiments after your phone still works
Flash the normal stock firmware and fix phone as they should without further experiments that can destroy it
This is a personal opinion and does not bind anyone to anything
