Default [Q] need help: hdc s4 spark (android 4.2.9) will not boot, how can i install new rom

hello,

first of all: my english is poor, i hope that is the right category for my question. is it not so please move.


i have ordered a hdc galaxy s4 spark (fastcardtech.com/HDC-Galaxy-S4-Spark) with android 4.2.9 for my daughter one moth ago in china.

this week she tryed to install a font type manager. after this the mobile is rebooted and stopped at start screen at the samsung logo. that was all. i tryed to reboot new (with or without battery). all times the same result. the cell stopped at the samsung logo.

i can open the recovery (Android system recovery <3e>). here i have the point: update from sd-card. but from there it opens the internal sd-card (mobile-store) not the external sd-card. but how can i move a rom or update on this internal card? and i have a point with the name apply update from adb? when i open this i can see the mobile in Quick ADB Pusher v0.5. but when i open the mobile in Quick ADB Pusher v0.5, i can not copy files on the phone.

pls help me to give the mobile the live back

at finally: sorry for my poor english. it is possible that it is a solve in this forum. but the forum is too big and i can not translate all specific descriptions here.

thx
marko

ps: can i open the mobile in android secured mode?

you could try factory resetting it in the recovery, otherwise the website of the phone might have a stock ROM that you can rename update.zip and use it in recovery

i have tryed all reset options in recovery - no results.

but now we have solved the problem

the rom s4 spark rom from needrom (http://www.needrom.com/mobile/hdc-galaxy-s4-spark/) was the problem.

i have installed this rom (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4#post47565024) for my hdc s4 spark . and the first try was successfully.
