    hey guys i tried rooting my s4 via cf root method but it failed and now my phone shows me " Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies and try again." I tried rebooting it and going into download mode or recovery mode but it just comes back to the same screen. The screen has a picture of a phone with 2 dots then a yellow exclamation mark then 2 dots then a pic of a pc. I have tried connecting it to kies on the pc but it just says connecting and nothing else happens. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi silentwitness. I don't have the i9500 but it looks like you need to try to Odin the stock firmware to get your phone back working again. I think Odin will still work with it stuck on the screen you're on.

    Yeah but they are not completely stable yet! I'm still on rooted stock, having used the cfroot method.... wanamlite is very tempting though, but in waiting till we get another round of updates from the developers :)

    i managed to root it with the cf method also i seem to be tilting towards omega rom since neatrom is not there for the s4. The omega rom seems to be quite stable.

    Lol yeah I know,I want to too for obvious reasons, but I'd rather wait until there is a more solid recovery then start farting about with custom Roms etc :)

    i ended up flashing "recovery-clockwork-6.0.3.2-i9500" and it works but not properly it does not pick up the folder path of the external sd card. So i need to keep looking going to try the philz touch via odin and see if it works.

    i was just checking i had 5gb of space missing in my phone turns out the nandroid backup went to data/media/clockworkmod which does not get read by the default file viewer i only managed to find that out thanks to root explorer. You also cant take backups to the external memory as the recovery i have does not have the correct path defined for the external memory.
