Hello,

For some reason, After unrooting my Galaxy S4 i9505 by supersu and resetting the brinary counter i can't seem to get to the download mode or the recovery mode. I tried holding Vol down + Home + Power button to go into download mode but instead it boots into OS, and same for the recovery. i also tried factory reset but the same result (btw in the factory reset my twrp recovery showed up to create partition etc.)

Can someone help me with this, Appreciate any help also i am new here

Try to reboot into download mode or recovery with ADB:
adb reboot download
adb reboot recovery

Info &download on ADB:

Before you do don't forget to enable USB debugging under Developer options.

Thanks, its worked by adb but I can't go into the download mode or recovery mode by tapping those home+volup+power button.
Is there a way to fix that or i have to every time go to the download mode by adb ?

Download your stock firmware from http://www.sammobile.com and flash it with odin,
after that flash philz touch recovery with odin too.

I don't have a direct solution but you don't need to press the Home button. Just holding Power and vol + or - also should do the trick.

Try this:

Hold VOL + Home + Power buttons until it vibrates
then let the power button go
and wait untill the android logo shows up.
