    Angry Samsung S4 stuck in Recovery Booting?

    Ok, So I was putting on a new custom Rom onto my phone and I accidentally took out the battery while it was halfway putting it in. Now, whenever I try to access it, it automatically goes to Recovery Boot. It goes in manual mode and it does not work anymore. Whenever I try to load normally, it just automatically goes to the recovery. I think my firmware on my phone is gone, I need major help, how can I fix this? I tried to put it to download mode and flash the stock firmware through Odin, but it's so bad that Odin does not recognize my phone. I have the drivers but yet nothing. When I plug it in it just says USB device not recognized. This is a Samsung S4 Galaxy Model SCH-I545 for Verizon. Can anybody help me?

    You might have to look at a JTAG to force flash the firmware onto the device. Even then, there is no guarantee this will work.

    Did the same thing. Don't drink and root at the same time. lol. What I had to do was download odin v3.09 and also get the firmware file from sam mobile. Note: I could not "make it rain" (towelroot) anymore. Seems to have changed my kernel build date. Restored everything back to stock.
    Opps, I didn't pay attention to your not being able to access odin.
