    I've been trawling threads and failing to fix my s4 - 19505

    My Samsung s4 i9505 is completely dead. In trying to load the stock image I think i've deleted the bootloader / pit everything i think.

    all my phone shows is the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". Kies doens't recognise the phone though.

    Odin does but i don't know what i need to load to fix it.... please help me

    1 - if i just load the stock image it says:
    <ID:0/006> Odin engine v(ID:3.1005)..
    <ID:0/006> File analysis..
    <ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/006> Initialzation..
    <ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..
    <ID:0/006> There is no PIT partition.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)​

    2 - i've downloaded some sort of PIT file and tried this (no expert if this was right)
    <ID:0/006> Odin engine v(ID:3.1005)..
    <ID:0/006> File analysis..
    <ID:0/006> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/006> Initialzation..
    <ID:0/006> Set PIT file..
    <ID:0/006> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
    <ID:0/006> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)​

    But does the image contain a bootloader? do i need to flash something else first?
    Please help me understand what to download and then how to use Odin correctly.

    Thanks for helping but i couldn't get any further...
    It came up as "GT-I9505 does not support initialising" - any other methods you're aware of?
