Thumbs down [Q] Bootloop issue!!! rooted m919

hey everybody, i rooted my s4 a couple days ago and it was working fine until i rebooted it too much in a short amount of time last night. Im a complete noob and new to customization. the phone is just stuck on the tmobile screen and wont go past it at all. i factory wiped it from stock recovery and that still did not help.
the root I used was: true- android. blogspot -dot- com / 2013 /11 /install -uvuemk2-android-43-jb-firmware.html
I followed everything correctly and the phone was rooted properly by odin.
theres not much else to it except that i was using font installer- a very stupid app that set its fonts to default and i was trying to get rid of them.
also i rerooted the phone using the same processes in the link above and nothing happened.
to the mods: sorry if this issue has been resolved somewhere else. if you know where please let me know. Thanks everybody!

Here is a sure fix for your issue.

Download cf-autoroot and odin flash it, but be sure you uncheck the
checkmark in odin which says "auto reboot" before flashing.
(unzip cf-autoroot so you get the TAR file which odin needs)
After flashing cf-autoroot use the power button to power off the phone.

Here is the direct download link for cf-autoroot:
http://download.chainfire.eu/328/CF-...mo-sghm919.zip

After that's done you need to odin flash TWRP custom recovery.
Here is the direct download for TWRP custom recovery
http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/jfl...1-jfltetmo.tar

After you are done flashing TWRP the phone should work properly
without any further issues.

I would highly suggest that after your phone is working properly make
a nandroid backup if the rom in TWRP recovery before you change any
settings, adding/installing or flashing any mods, themes or apps.


Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

Yes, in the latest odin version the pda is now called "AP" and yes
it's always best to un-check auto-reboot in Odin and always
power the phone down manually after odin flashes anything.

Good luck!

Go into recovery and do a "Factory Reset", don't wipe anything except cache and dalvik cach
then do the "factory reset" and reboot the phone.

By doing that it will delete any files and settings which are related to your previous rom version
you had before you Odin flashed the full 4.3 official Samsung M919 Jellybean firmware.

The factory reset will not wipe your internal/external sdcard and it will not wipe any personal files,
contacts, music, videos or pictures.

All the factory reset in recovery does is to make sure that you only have the new
updated Samsung M919 official Jelleybean 4.3 rom related files in your phone.

Google will replace your contacts and other settings using your gmail account
automatically after you sign into your gmail account.

Good luck!
