    Hello all!
    I can't get past Samsung Logo on my Sprint's S4. I successfully rooted, but ran into trouble after dropping services.jar and services.odex files for Odexed phones (MF9) and flashing to enable Hotspot capability I tried using several tar files in different version of Odin's, but none helped me revive the device. Although I am able to boot into recovery, restoring to factory settings and wiping cache doesn't do anything either. Please, Please, advise.
    Thank you!

    Did you make a backup through recovery before hand? You should of, and can restore that if you did. Otherwise, you'll need to reinstall the stock ROM or a custom ROM.

    I was so certain that I would have no problems that I did not make a back up...Would you kindly point out what ROM might work for me?

    If you can reboot into recovery, that is a good sign. You can install any ROM on an SD card that is proper for your device model number. Most custom ROMs can be found on XDA.

    I should have mentioned that Odin comes back with a message "There is no Pit partition" after initialization. I have tried so many ROMS, but none of them work and the phone can't find a zip file when it is in the recovery mode....

    I am honestly not sure what to suggest. I don't know how to correct the no PIT partition.

    Are you loading the PIT file when you're using Odin? If you are, that message indicates a hardware failure on the motherboard.

    Thanks for your time guys, I switched to another PC and though I am no longer getting the "no PIT partition" message. Some tar files I tried cause Odin to freeze, others result in a "pass" message, but none get me beyond the Samsung Logo...
