Argh...

I started with a rooted S4 SGH-I337 running 4.3. Was eating batteries with AT&T's OTA push failing every day so I decided to flash a new 4.2.2 ROM using "For MK2 Base Users (never took NB1 OTA)" instructions Here. After the reboot, the "Samsung Custom" splash stayed on for an hour until I rebooted manually. Now it remains stuck in the splash screen unless I boot into download mode.

I've tried flashing a new ROM and partition using these instructions and (I337MK2_Full_Odin_Tar.tar.md5) / (SGS-I337_16GB.pit) but have not seen any difference. Here is where I'm sitting now.


Kies doesn't see the phone at all.

Download screen:
Code:
ODIN MODE
PRODUCT NAME: SGH-1337
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
KNOX KERNAL LOCK: 0x0
KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0
CSC-CONFIG-LSB: 0x30
WRITE PROTECTION: Enable
eMMC BURST MODE Enabled
After flashing, Download screen says:
Code:
Start (224, 1440)
SW REV. CHECK FAIL : Fused : 5, Binary : 4
and Odin says:
Code:
FAIL! (Auth)
Now it goes to a triangle/Oden download screen generally without going to the Samsung splash.

I've spent days reading threads and haven't found anything that seems helpful at this point. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions or links to a thread that may help?

If you are seeing this while flashing MK2, then you have a NB1 bootloader.

Holy Awsome Sauce Batman. With that little bit of information, I downloaded the rooted stock ROM and it worked like a charm. Thanks...
