    I need help!
    My S4 keeps freezing on the verizon splash screen and it wont progress!
    Everything the internet has told me to do for the past few days hasn't worked at all!
    I wiped out the cache.
    I tried to get stock firmware with ODIN
    I tried to use a different battery!
    I took out the sim card
    I took out the micro SD card I had in it!
    I even factory reset and not an inch of progress towards my phone!
    I cannot get a replacement because the warranty is over
    I don't have insurance on it
    I dont know what android version im using but, I have a SCH-1545 whatever that means!
    I need my phone and any response is helpful!

    The link is broken if I hit the download button, it tells me "Oops! Something went wrong!" and below that its telling me "file not found"

    Is there an alternate way to get this firmware?
