Model number: I9500

Baseband Version: i9500XXUAMDE

Build Number: JDQ39.i9500XXUAMDE




i bought s4 today from a local market, it was rooted and has super su icon there, i unrooted my phone from there and then i thought i would flash my phone to stock rom myself,

Now i downloaded firmware for pakistan i-e I9500XXUAMDE_I9500OJVAMDC_I9500XXUAMDE_HOME.tar

and used odin 3.85 and pressed the pda button and then it was passed, the phone restarted but unfortunately i lost the signals n there was a cross mark and in the settings about menu it says mobile network state disconnected and it says out of service and still it says device status CUSTOM, Software update through wifi says the same too

Please help, is it a genuine s4 or not, please help urgent...................

Most likely, there are 2 options here:
a) while flashing, you messed with the EFS partition => your IMEI number is demo one (plenty of zeroes, ending with 49).
b) the phone, you have bought, was stolen and claimed. Then, the operator blocked the original IMEI, so it was forced

well, option a - got o service centre or try to restore IMEI.
option b) buy not stolen, legitimate device from legitimate seller, not from a thief.
