    Default Boot recovery. No command then error

    So every time I try to boot into recovery my little green android says no command. If I try to wipe partition it says error. Has anyone heard of this or had this happen?

    It happens to me too. As I understand it, the latest system update caused it.

    I'm gonna blame you for not getting any answers to your question...you did not supply much info at all.

    What version/carrier of the S4 are you using?
    What did you do before you came to this error?
    Is everything else working fine, just no recovery?

    It almost sounds like you're on MF3 firmware with AT&T and you tried to flash a custom recovery and now you have no recovery at all? Just a guess?

    Anyways, if you want help, supply as much information as you can think of so someone is more likely to be able to help you!

    Your right! I'm on Verizon. Running stock. I didn't try to flash a Rom, phone has been laggy so wanted to wipe my cache. I've attached a screenshot of my build number and hardware info.

    Did you try to flash a custom recovery? If so, that would have destroyed your stock recovery and the custom recovery would not have installed either.

    I actually didn't try to do anything except wipe my cache partition.

    That is correct, same here. I read some posts about this either here somewhere or on xda developers that people couldn't wipe their cache partition after the latest update. I tried myself and sure enough, I also got the error. I'm bone stock and on Verizon. There isn't a whole lot of info, but of you do a google search, you'll see some results.

    It is not limited to the latest update, I was experiencing that even before the update. Btw, I am on Sprint.

    I have the same problem but mine is international version, no carrier like AT&T. And yep. You are right. I flash s4 to 4.4.2 and then try to flash back to 4.3. I couldn't so I searched and one forum says install the custom recovery and then factory reset using recovery mode. But after I install, I couldn't boot the phone nor call recovery mode. Then, I go to mobile service and they install 4.2, the original version i.e the same version as when it was bought. Finally, the phone reboot. But, it has network error and can't make any call. Plus, in odin mode, it says custom. knox void 1.
    So first I would like to fix that.
    Second I would like to flash 4.3 back if possible.
    I would very much appreciate your help.

    1) Once your Knox is void, there's no going back. The only way out is to buy a new phone. You tripped it when you flashed a custom recovery.
    2) Upgrades on the S4 are "One Way" only because of the bootloader that's updated with each update. Attempts to downgrade will break the software or soft brick the phone. Your only option is to go back to Android 4.4.2. Look for the 4.4.2 ROM for your phone model and push it through via Odin. Everything should then be up and running properly.

    I have a galaxy s4 active with at&t i flashed a custom rom on to it and now the phone wont turn on. I could get it into download mode but when I get it into recovery mode it says no command.
    When i turn it on with the power button it says "firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery in kies & try again" but if I try kies it says my firmware is not supported.
    I also tried flashing the stock firmware on Odin but says failed everytime.
    Any advice can help!

    Cool Re: Boot recovery. No command then error

    I had the same problem with a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (P3110) and have fixed it.

    After successfully flashing CWM, any time I entered download mode the 'NO COMMAND' came up and the recovery was basically useless (showed the lying down android with red triangle in the background).

    Found solution on a Galaxy S4 forum but it worked for my Tab 2, and probably some other devices.

    SOLUTION:

    1) Flash CWM as normal, except untick 'auto reboot' before you press start.
    2) Once it's finished, unplug USB and power off directly from the download screen (just hold the power button in).
    3) Next try and enter recovery mode, and if you're as lucky as me you'll get into the custom recovery and not the dodgy stock recovery.

    The original forum was for Galaxy S4, so said to take out battery once the flash was complete. Tab 2 has not got removable battery, so I had to improvise by just powering off.

    Hope this helps anyone in same situation as I was about half an hour ago.
