thanks for reply but can not fix problem
Are you successfully format internal storage.
In wipe option choose data then click repair and change file system. Click change file system choose any type except ext4 then swipe to proceed. Again do same thing this time choose ext4. After that go to wipe option choose swipe to factory reset type yes.
In backup option internal memory shows available storage in mb?

Stuck at logo screen

I have a I9505 (Galaxy S4) and after a week I rooted (with CFautoroot) my device rebooted alone and after that I could not get past the logo screen.

I can:
- enter download mode;
- use odin (install roms, pit, etc with no errors);

I cant:
- enter recovery mode (stuck at screen showing "recovery booting" blue text at top and logo)

one observation is that if turn off my phone, it actually reboots instead of shutting off. To shut off I need to pull off the battery.
And if I plug my phone on the charge, it shows the battery icon on screen but greyed out with a lightning inside.. not changing to the charging animation

I tried many installations: latest stock rom (jan/2017) downloaded directly from samsung servers (using samfirm, which by the way I completely recommend) with pit (and without it).... tried with CF autoroot.. tried with twrp.. but with no change... I can never get past logo screen =(

I think theres still something installed that could be affecting my phone, is there possible? The question is: when I install pit + rom it removes everything?
I dont mind losing all data from my phone memory, so if theres anything that I could do to restore my phone to original form I would do it.

Go to twrp recovery. Are you able to use internal storage in install option.
Is my files app showing internal storage.
Yes phone have 16gb storage but available usable memory is something 11gb only. About 5gb of internal storage consumed by Samsung stock rom. Your usable and free memory is approximately 8 to 9gb.
Please send me a screen shot of my files app.

Your phone is normal there is no issue in internal storage. In computer install latest Samsung usb driver and reboot. When you connect your phone with usb cable make sure your phone display is on and unlock from lock screen. You will able to see internal storage in computer.

No need of pit file. Just do a simple format data in recovery when you going to 5.0 to 4.4.2.
