i went through odin and flashed stock everything several times but it was all no help at all no matter what i do it wont go past galaxy s4 boot screen. it boots into recovery and download mode
please any help is appreciated idk what to do
I saw the title and got a little nervous. You have a soft brick luckily and not a hard brick. A hard brick is where the device is stuck powered off and has no life what's so ever. Which stock firmwares have you tried flashing, and have you attempted flashing the correct pit file with a complete stock firmware (bootloader, radios, recovery, system, boot)?
