My S4 GT-i9500 went out of battery last night and now it wont boot. I'm on PA 4.4 beta 1.
Although I can enter download mode only when my phone is connected to the PC but odin is not recognizing it.
Also if I disconnect it from the computer, my phone goes blank again.

Please help!!

Try reinstalling samsung drivers or kies to get odin to recognize the phone,
if Odin works again then you can try and flash stock firmware for your device

possible fix is to disable personalized message
I had same problem since KitKat 4.4.2 ( FNB8).
I think I fixed it by disabling personalized message on lock screen

1. go to Setting/LockScreen/Lock screen widget
2. disable personalized message by selecting clock

It doesn't sound like a software problem.

My guess is either your battery (is the battery swollen?) or a hardware problem.

Why do you assume it's a software problem? If your battery ran out and now you can't boot, then the chances that it's a software problem is something like 0,1%.

Your battery is probably damaged, try a new battery.

Well I tried a different battery,but still I can't pass the "Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-i9500" screen. It blinks once, stays for about 5-7 seconds and then the phone shuts off.

I also can't access the recovery.

Can someone send me the correct PIT files for GT-i9500 or the link plzzz now.

I managed to connect it with odin I believe my phone is soft bricked. So flashing stock firmware, but getting an error, no PIT partition found.
