    OK i odend back to stock 4.1.2 and took the upgrade to 4.3. i casual rooted and that worked great. then i dis-sided to put TWRP on the phone from goo manager. I new it was a bad idea but I did it anyway. now I have the yellow triangle off death telling me to take it to Verizon. So I tried to oden back to stock with the soft brick root66. Still the triangle of death. Dose any one have a solution.

    So you currently have the stock recovery flashed, and it's still giving you the yellow triangle?

    It wont even let me go to the stock recovery any more. now if I do all the buttons to get to recovery it tells me that firmware upgrade was unsuccessful . I tried to use Kies to flash stock 4.3 and it fails. It gives me a recovery code to try on a different PC witch also does not work. I think I really messed it up this time.

    The only thing I can think of to try is to see if you can find the 4.3 recovery since you took the ota, and see if you can flash that with Odin. The issue with the 4.3 ota is it gives us Knox, and an updated bootloader, which casual can't unlock.
