What firmware did you start with? Re-flash that firmware to get back to stock and get your phone working again.

I started with I337MVLUEMK6 (Rogers 4.3). I was able to successfully restore with that firmware with oden.

So it seems i337m doesn't downgrade on 4.3. Is there a way I can flash the modem to get access to the menu ?
It's all about umts secret menu access.

There are lots of kiosks in malls that will do it for around $20.... unless you are actually trying to kill the phone... (kidding)

It appears the Canadian models also have locked bootloaders which prevent you from downgrading the entire firmware.

I saw the MG1 4.2 modem in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2324667

Once you flash that it should give you access to the hidden menu. You can then re-flash the MK6 modem after you unlock (also in the above thread).

I have fido on 4.3 stock I337MVLUEMK6 rom. I tried to downgrade it to I337MVLUAMDJ using the Rogers (http://stockroms.net/file/GalaxyS4//SGH-I337M) to get the hidden service menu. I was able to get it downgrade and show the baseband and build version to : I337MVLUAMDJ using ODIN 3.09 and access the service menu(http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2285431) to go through the steps and unlock the phone. However I got the invalid sim error and also the phone wifi and sound doesn't work

Any ideas how to get it work on the I337MVLUAMDJ firmware?

Thank

Canadian models do not have locked bootloaders. even knox doesnt lock it. which is why we can run custom recoveries and kernels. will trip knox, but it is *not* locked bootloader. I337m = unlocked

I also have a Canadian MK6 and downgraded it to MDJ and did everything in the hidden menu but still unable to unlock. After more searching I finally found a way to unlock mine. Check this out.
