Rooted AT&T Samsung S4 - can't boot into recovery mode
So I rooted yesterday successfully but apparently shut something down (froze) in Titanium Backup that I shouldn't have. Phone has been rebooting itself all day saying that "com.android.phone" has stopped. I can't log into the phone (and the SD card is encrypted so I'm able to log in there when the phone restarts). I have an MF3 stock phone.
I have followed the instructions on the xda board, downloaded ODIN, put the rar files in their proper place in ODIN but I'm not even sure I'm doing that correctly. Phone is connected to my Windows 7 x64 via USB but I'm not sure the computer even recognizes the phone at this point to even flash the ROM using ODIN. I try to reboot the phone into recovery mode using the hardware buttons: nothing happens, except I see the Samsung Galaxy logo, I let go of the buttons, then nothing, it turns back off. I got one prompt (Yellow exclamation error triangle) to boot into recovery, and when I said yes, again, nothing happened, phone turned off and I see the charging battery icon.
I'm at a loss here. Not sure where to go from here. Phone is soft-bricked for sure but because it keeps booting itself, I can't even flash it to get it back to stock MF3 mode.
