Verizon Soft Brick and Stuck
I've searched high and low for an answer to my issue but am stuck....This is my first non-nexus Samsung, so I may be missing something easy, if so I apologize.
I have a VZW 9505 that has already been updated to newest stock firmware. I achieved root of the stock ROM using the new method and then used the goo manager script to install a custom recovery (likley the point of my mistake). After attempting to push the TWRP recovery, I got a 'failed to boot' error and loaded directly to the download mode. From there I tried restoring using the 'VRUMDK no wipe' image. This failed immediately on an "AUTH" error.
So now if I boot normal, it tells me to use the recovery feature in Kies, which doesn't work since I wasn't using that in the first place. I can also get to download mode (trying to boot to recovery takes me to the previous error message). From there, the information bar reads:
System Status: Official
Write Protection: Enable
From either screen I can reach, ADB cannot see the device.
If anyone can recommend a solution, I'd be very grateful.
