    I can get into download mode, but no luck with the firmware. I can't find the right one. New phone. I'm pissed. Should have left it alone.

    What model you got? What method did you use to root, custom recovery or cf root? Could you link the guide you followed? :)

    Seriously what model have you got? American or an international. If international (sm-g950F) for the sake of getting your phone up and running it doesn't have to be exact firmware you had. As long as it's g950 firmware it should work.

    Its a 935A

    Edit: Well it's 1:48 a.m., I got it recovered. Power is super low, can't log into my google account, keyboard is a lil funky on google login. Charging it back up, I'll try it in the morning.
