Question [Q] Stuck at samsung screen

Alright, I have a verizon galaxy s4 that I got recently, and I rooted my device and got safestrap. I tried to clear my data to make enough space for a custom rom slot and I coudent make the space to make a custom rom slot. By the way I was trying to make a rom slot for hyperdrive..
On reboot it was on the samsung screen for atleast 20/30 minutes before I took out the battery and put it back in, and now I have it on next to me. It is still on the samsung screen. Any ideas? I have a sch I545. Thanks in advance. I do have insurance and I think I might have to get my phone replaced due to this, which would suck but if that is what this comes down to I have to.

There should be no need to get your phone replaced; users doing that is a large part of the reason why bootloaders are locked.

Follow directions here to enter ODIN/Download mode: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2290771

Download ODIN and the either the Full-Wipe or No-Wipe image here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2578209

(If the no-wipe doesn't work, you'll need the full-wipe, so it may be easier to simply start with that one.)


Follow the directions in the thread to flash the .tar.md5 and your phone should be fully restored to normal working condition.

I cannot flash anything because my phone will not be recognized by my computer when I plug it in via USB. I know this because I tried to unroot and see if that worked but it could not recognize my phone.

Are you able to get the S4 booted into Download mode?

(Assuming yes)
Do you have the Samsung USB Driver installed? http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.co..._v1.5.14.0.exe

Have you tried using the USB cable it came with, or a different cable/port?
