[Q][SOLVED] SGH-1337 wiped system, can't restore phone
After getting past the painful MF3 firmware and rooting my Galaxy S4, I loaded Safestrap
and proceeded to do a simple Factory Reset, I was too excited about moving forward to notice the 'system' Checkbox was checked and my simple factory reset turned into a full system wipe :c
Fortunately I made a backup before I did anything and it's still on my external SD Card, however, I can't get to the Safestrap Recovery(assuming it's still installed on my phone after the wipe) and trying to boot the phone just causes it to shut off, freeze at the Galaxy S4 splash screen or go straight to the stock download mode.
I downloaded Kies to try and proceed with that but I get a "Device not responding" error.
Now literally all I can do is go into the Stock Download/ODIN mode, is there ANYTHING I could do from here or am I screwed?
Attempted an emergency recovery which caused the yellow triangle to appear then brought it back to Best Buy when different reps were working, told them it was a problem with Kies, and they flashed the stock firmware back onto my phone, now I'll just be impatiently waiting until someone finds a method to load CWM or TWRP after the MF3 update since I'm not exactly a fan of Safestrap ^_^
