[Q] did i killed my galaxy s4? :(
So i Tried to turn my galaxy s4 to a Google edition phone because i heard it removes the the small lags the device has, but in the process of changing the OS i think i deleted the Factory installed files on the device and did not install the google OS.
so now my phone only shows the Samsung logo when i turn it on, nothing else.
can anyone please help me? or is this a lost cause?
here is what i did
-first i rooted my phone using odin,which i have don a bunch of times, that wasn't the problem, after rooting i installed TWRP on my device and copied the 4.3 google play ROM into my device.
-secondly i rebooted the device, (as the guide said) opened TWRP and did as the guide told me (Wipe –> Advanced Wipe and select “Dalvik Cache”, “System”, and “Cache”. Then move the slider to complete the wipe.) (refer to picture for more detail)
***** this is where i think i ****ed up******
-Now the guide asks me to install the new ROM and do a factory reset + a reboot.
However my phone froze for some reason and i couldn't install the ROM then it rebooted automatically.
now i cant get passed the company's logo and if i do go into TWRP and try doing any of the previous stuff it keeps writing these lines:
checking for MD5 file...
skipping MD5 check: no MD5 file found.
updating partition details...
E: Unable to mount '/system'
E:Unable to mount '/efs'
E:Unable to mount '/preload'
and when ever i try to reset or reboot, it says the device has no OS .
is it over for my phone? i really would appreciate it if someone could tell me Anything
on how to fix this problem.
i have been searching the web for the past 2 days, spending hours trying to find an answer or a case similar to mine, so far i haven't found anything.
