    I really don't know if this has been answered before or whatnot, so I will create this thread.

    So I had my S4 for like, 6 monthes now and recently wanted to put a simcard in, only to realize it was locked. Note that my phone is rooted and had 0 issues before this, it was running 5.0.1 like a normal phone. My model is the SGH-I337M.

    So, to try and unlock it, I made a backup with TitaniumBackup, and kept it on my PC, and installed stock rom on my phone.

    This is where the problems start.

    In the stock rom, I was unable to unlock the phone, so I gave up on that. However, I was unable to do alot of things, including but not limited to : I can't turn on Wi-Fi, No sound feedback from anything, Bugs and lag with the UI, etc...

    I contacted Samsung Support and they told me to re-update my phone through Kies, which I did, but the problems were not solved, if anything, they're even worse now.

    I tried a wide range of solutions I found on google : I wiped cache partitions, cleared the RAM, disabled apps, did a battery pull, I even Hard Reset the entire phone, nothing seems to help.

    So my question is : How can I, if i even can, get my phone back how it was later (excluding personal data because as mentionned above, I do have a backup.)

    Any help would be appreciated at this point.

    Hi, this is OP. I've happy to say that i've solved the issue =D !!

    What I believe the problem was is that I got the wrong carrier firmware.

    I went ahead and looked for the right firmware on google (samsung galaxy s4 SGH-I337M 5.0.1 rogers) and found it.

    All that was left was flashing it with odin and boom! Problems solved!

    Welcome to the forums. How did you reinstall the stock ROM? Through Odin?

    When using Odin or Kies, it is VERY important that you have the correct OS version for your device!
