So I had some issues in the past with getting to the recovery mode on the Galaxy S4 i337.
Eventually, I was able to using odin. (YAY) So I wanted to erase the phone so I could start from scratch.
I wiped the data, and rebooted.
HERE IS THE ISSUE!
I turn on the phone, and I'm greeted with the Galaxy S4 logo. After a few seconds, the screen goes black with the LED pulsing white and blue. The screen is still black when the back and menu lights turn on (at this point the LED stops pulsing) and I know the touch screen works because when I touch the screen, the back and menu lights turn back on after being off from inactivity. The screen, on the other hand, is still black.
I can still see the Download mode and Recovery mode fine when I go into them. But for some reason, the screen is still black after the Samsung logo, preventing me from setting up my phone.
