Hey guys,

I have an S4 that is stuck on the Samsung logo. I have left it for over an hour at a stretch with nothing happening except the phone is smoking hot.

I have booted into Recovery (stock) and wiped the cache and rebooted with the same result.

I am completely stock and unrooted ... any ideas?

I assume I would lose all data and programs and have to re-set up the phone?

Have you tried wiping Dalvik cache in recovery as well?

See the Samsung guy at any Best Buy. He has the Samsung Tool and will reflash it for free. You will be back to MK2. Easier than fiddling with various fixes. This happened to my wife's Sgh-i747. Init.d prop build error. Recovery flashing updates didn't work. Odin didn't work. Kies same.

Just re-flash the stock firmware from odin. Use the pda button, check auto-restart and f reset flags only. Use PDA button to browse to the downloaded IMG file. You can get your stock firmware from Samsung-updates.com . just make sure you get the i337m or the i337 (whichever you have, as they are not the same) for your region.

Did a factory wipe and reboot and I am back in business. Crappy that it happened that way but happy that I was able to recover
