I have the mk2 version of the galaxy s4. I had a rom installed using safe strap. I am planning on selling the phone to someone so i wanted to put it back to stock before I give it to them. When i loaded the default partition and ran the stock rom when I tried to do the newest update it kept failing. So I unrooted my phone and went into safestrap and deleted the 2nd partition I would not be using. I also did a factory reset and wiped everything else. Now when I tried to reboot the phone it is stock on the screen that says Samsung and says samsung with a lock. It will not go past there. PLEASE HElp!!

also when I do hold volume up, power and the home screen I see a flash of blue at the top left of the screen like it would go to recovery but it just resets and gets stuck.

If I'm not mistaken, you should just be able to flash "MK2VZW-downgrade4rooting-AIOdin-gogolie.rar" from the "4.x to 4.4.2 SAFEUp&Downgrade w Root n SafeStrap feat. 1File/Flash&Done!MK2-NC2/NC5" thread in ODIN and you'll be back to stock MK2 without root. From there you can do whatever, root it, leave it as is, upgrade to NC5, etc.

(anti-spam system won't let me use URL links, sorry!)
