    Hey guys so my phones kernel and stuff was slightly messed up I know this because wifi didn't always work and it wouldn't work at certain places and if I reset the phones settings or factory the wifi would show up. I then thought hey I need wifi so let me put a custom mod on it. I have rooted my phone easy but never put a custom mod.. I still dont know what it does or what a custom recovery is or whatever. I tried odin and it said failed a bunch of times. I then started trying to use apps like goo manager and busy box and such and had no idea what i was doing other than following instructions blindly and I ended up using an app that was glitched I believe and when ever I started the phone it went into recovery mode. Then I stopped using the phone for a quite a while and one of my friends said he could look at it and determined that it is screwed to the point of no return. So I thought why not go for one last swing at it did some more Youtbing and did another tutorial another tarp or md5 file or whatever it is. I now have that screen which says connect to Kies for emergency firmware recovery or something. I can still access download mode and such but the main problem is 1. odin is still not working 2. Kies is now not recognizing my S4 keeps telling me it doesnt recognize it. I have a Samsung S4 verizon build number is 2g6 I believe I know the ending is 6. Its curruntly on 4.4.2 kit kat.

    TLDR: The phone says that i need to hook it up to kies for emergency firmare something but kies wont recognize my phone and I cant do a hard reset and When I flash with Odin it always says Fail when it gets to the boot part

    Thanks so much guys you dont know how much any help would be. Please respond this is all I will be doing all day so I can give you all extra info asap.

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums PLXHElppp! :)

    Your best bet is to download the following firmware...

    Model: SCH-I545

    Model name: GALAXY S4

    Country: USA (Verizon)

    Version: Android 4.4.2

    Changelist: 2415818

    Build date: Tue, 04 Nov 2014 14:08:46 +0000

    Product Code: VZW

    PDA: I545VRUFNK1

    CSC: I545VZWFNK1

    MODEM: I545VRUFNK1


    ... and flash it by following the instructions and video in #1.5 of
    28 Galaxy S4 models - know yours?

    N.B. Do not have Kies running at the same time as Odin but leave it installed on your compute as you will need the drivers.

    Right... Pub!
