    Hi guys,

    I have a korean galaxy s4 LTE-A (SHV E330K). So recently it has been lagging and getting hot so I dedided to try to root it.
    Being the noob that I am, I downloaded Odin, and the CMW for the i9505. I tried to flash it but it failed.

    Now I cannot use my phone. Whenever I want to turn it on, there is Korean text basically saying Download in progress, do not turn off.
    On the top left, it says :

    Product Nme : SHV-E330K
    Current Binary : Custom
    System Status : Official
    Knox Ke: 0x0
    Knox Warranty Void : 0X1
    Qualcomm Secureboot : Enable
    RP SWREV : S1, T1, R1, A2, PO
    Write Protection

    I tried to download the stock firmware, but could not find any for my specific model. I downloaded the one for SHV-330S Jelly Bean 4.3.
    However, when I tried to use Odin nothing happens. It just says fail.

    I tried to hold down the volume button + home and power button press down again on the volume button. It boots up only up to my carrier logo.
    Then nothing happens. This was my first try rooting and I do not understand what to do now.

    Need help please. It is urgent.

    Thank you so much, and sorry for being a total noob.
