Device: Rooted Verizon Galaxy S4 (MDK).

1. Wiped/Formatted internal storage via TWRP
2. Rebooted back into Recovery
3. Flashed new ROM
4. Flashed GAPPS
5. Rebooted phone and setup new ROM.
6. Worked great.
7. Rebooted phone
8. Stuck on Samsung Custom Screen

I'm able to boot back into recovery, just not sure what to do now. This happens every time no matter what ROM I flash. I have a feeling I effed something up by wiping internal storage. Just need to know how to fix. Thank you very much in advance.

If nothing you've tried so far has gotten you past this issue have you tried using Odin no wipe to start over?

Also what ROMs have you tried? Have you tried any custom kernels?

Is your recovery up to date?

I thought ODIN No-Wipe was for non-MDK?
Vanir and Carbon are the ROMs I tried.
I haven't tried custom kernels, nor do I know if TWRP is up to date. I'll check those out, thank you.

No Odin is for all our S4's no matter what build. Here are the MDK files http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2289325

I'd say first though to update your recovery. Then I always use KToonsez Kernel myself with every ROM I run and can say I've never had an issue . I have seen a lot of problems like yours that were kernel related and one way to test that would be to flash his kernel ( KToonsez ) after the ROM you've already tried before.

You can also use Flashify from play store to update your TWRP if u can get your phone to boot again

Oh hey don't worry about it! I appreciate the gesture I really do. I'm just happy you got it back up and running.

You can donate that to someone like Surge1223 or K1mu or any number of the guys on here that help out everyday with their vast knowledge of this stuff many of us would be SOL
