    I just rooted a Verizon GS4 (VRUAME7) using this method. Everything went fine. I verified root with Root Checker, rebooted the phone, checked again.

    Then I followed this method to install TWRP. When I rebooted the device as instructed, it got stuck on a splashscreen that has and Android logo and says "Downloading...Do not turn off target!!"

    The upper left in red says "Could not do normal boot. ODIN MODE"

    I tried a battery pull, vol dwn + power, vol up + power and vol down + up + power.

    How do I get back to normal boot or into TWRP recovery? I have a ROM I'd like to install, and as of now...it won't get past that splash screen.

    What do I do?

    Thanks!

    I ended up booting into download mode (volume down + home +power) and then I got prompted for did I really want to do that, I responded no and the phone booted up.

    None that I know of. Goo makes mention of it still, but I didn't try it again.

    Good. I wouldnt risk it because in the latest s4 update for Verizon they blocked the whole loki process.

    Once you are able to install a recovery, if using TWRP, only download 2.5.0.2... all other versions have bugs here and there (this is the current recovery I use and works flawlessly).

    If you go CWM, go with PhilzCWM

    Definitely make sure you use 2.5.0.2, that latest version will give you all sorts of stress.
    If that's your issue once twrp opens for you, I just had to keep trying volume up and power until I got in, immediately flash the older version. Just have it on your sd card, hit install in twrp and select that version and it will immediately switch.

    I too tried this and got the ODIN screen. I've had only Motorola phones for the last 3+ years. The only reason I knew anything ABOUT Odin methods was I had a Samsung Continuum for a bit and messed with flashing with Odin.

    Nevertheless I ended up flashing VRUAME7 via odin to restore the phone, thinking the phone was bricked.

    I would like to be able to have full backup and restore functions. Ive had TWRP before and liked what it can do.

    if you flashed the update file of ME7, then you cannot install custom recovery, and must wait until an exploit comes out for that.

    I'm having the same problem. I downloaded the 2.5.0.2 version, but how do I replace it with the new version?

    Sorry so late, I wasn't getting notified of quotes. My post was old and TWRP has been updated and the latest version as of this date is working just fine. You may be able to find the update through goo manager or else head over to XDA. You just flash the update with whatever version you're on now, maybe wipe cache and dalvik for good measure, reboot to recovery and it should update itself right there.

    Thanks, great help, g. All I did was switch on my GS4 on Boxing Day and got the same message(s) and result: no response whatsoever. I followed vol down+power+home and, praise be, back to normal. Merry Xmas :-)

    I had the same issue after installing TWRP via Goo Manager , it stuck in downloading ..... Do not turn off Target!! on 4.3 MK2

    I went to the download mode by battery pull, vol dwn + power and Vol down for cancel and it rebooted the s4 without recovery mode .

    I used I337MK2stockrecovery.tar.md5 in odin and get my recovery mode back. Mine is AT&T Galaxy s4.I don't know it works for any other carriers or not.

    I have never had a device that Goo Manager has worked on. After trying, it bricked my phone. Had to flash the MK2 recovery image found on XDA. Luckily, after a near heart attack, version 3.90 of Odin worked after 3.85 failed twice. To my surprise, I didn't have to wipe my data. It did unroot my phone, though. Easy enough to fix.

    Lol. Glad I could help! Sorry, haven't been on really in a couple days. Also, found that after MDK, you can only install Safestrap.

    Question about the recovery you did. I have an unlocked I337 on which I loaded goomanager and lost my recovery. If I reinstall I337MK2stockrecovery.tar.md5, will I loose my unlocked status? Need it because I am running the phone on t-mobile. I am thinking of installing safestrap. Does it make sense to do the stock recovery before installing safestrap? Thanks

    I am also suffering from the same problem and it has only been for a night and i'm already bored and annoyed with it.
    My S3 today has been fine then when i came to charging it, it went to car mode, stopped taking charge and basically stopped working. I tired all the basics such as turn it off and on, and such. Anyway after it calmed down a bit i just turned it off and and put it on charge and the warning of "downloading... Do not turn off target came on and has been frozen like this for about an hour now. Can someone help?
