    Default Stuck in Boot

    Hey all, I can't find a discussion to address this, so here it is.

    I just rooted a replacement S4 running 4.4.2, everything was fine. I then used Uninstall Master to rid myself of the bloat, and then... stuck on load screen!

    When I rebooted the phone, it stayed at the T-Mobile load screen. I tried factory reset and re-rooting using Odin, and no luck. Still stuck. Also tried a custom recovery mod, but since I can't start the phone, my pc doesn't recognize it to let me go through its directory to insert files on the card.

    Any ideas?

    Welcome to the forums.
    You are probably going to have to reflash a stock ROM through Odin.

    After I get it downloaded (looong wait on SamMobile), I will do that. Could I have uninstalled a system app in Uninstall Master to cause this?

    That would be my guess. After you get back up and running, and rerooted, make a Nandroid backup of the ROM before removing anything. This will reduce headaches.

    Just tried installing stock ROM through Odin. No luck (Failed install). Also, Kies doesn't recognize the phone.

    Tried different ports, cables, and updated Samsung drivers?

    Try downloading again. And perhaps from Sammobile?
