    It's pretty unusual to hard-brick a phone just by rooting it, but it really depends on what steps you followed. Can you provide a link to the process that you followed?

    You also haven't given us much to go on - what firmware was on the phone when you tried rooting?
    Have you tried pulling the battery for a few minutes?
    What happens when you press the Power button for about 4 seconds? Does the phone vibrate at all?
    Have you tried powering on with the battery installed AND the charger connected?
    Have you tried removing the SIM card and SD card (if present)?

    Sorry to welcome you to the forums under such circumstances...

    Did you try to root after taking the 4.3 update? If so, you might have hard bricked.

    There are some folks claiming that Saferoot worked...

    Hey guys can you help me please?

    My friend's s4 had a custom OS installed on it. According to him he didn't do it but he just turned on his phone oneday and it said "Samsung, Custom OS" but it wouldn't fully turn on after the samsung screen. I tried to wipe it and re-install a factory OS (KitKat i think it was) through Odin3 v1.85

    I completed the installation and the phone rebooted on its own. During the reboot the phone turned off and now it doesnt turn on anymore. It would vibrate if i plug it into a charger but thats all.

    Also, I've tried to boot it up in download mode & recovery mode & ive tried to hard reset it but nothing works

    Its a galaxy s4 model SGH1337

    What is the device manager calling the device when it connects to PC?
