    First off I have a Galaxy S4 from Sprint and I completely messed it up.

    So I tried to root my phone using CyanogenMod and needless to say it completely messed my phone up.
    All I get is a bootloop and when I tried to THAT I now get a error that says, "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again."
    Kies hasn't worked! The serial number doesn't even go through and the program doesn't even read my phone.

    So basically I don't ever wanna mess with this whole rooting thing again and just completely reformat my phone for the better.

    TLR - I messed up my phone bad and just want it to be normal again. HELP D=

    Welcome to the forums.

    You would need to download the stock ROM file. You can go to Samsung Updates.com, look for you exact model number. Those downloads normally take a while, they are throttled. Afterwards, you can look at this http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-via-odin.html

    Unfortunately I have to go to work, this download is taking 12 times longer than it should.
    I will post results when I get home.

    Volumn up and power don't even start recovery mode.
    Also when I tried to reroot it, it went straight to CyanogenMod boot loop again. (That's before I started getting the Kies error message)
    I'll test it out your method when I get home.

    Thanks for the info!
    Anything additional you could tell me would be great.

    QBKing77 on YouTube might have a video on how to do this too.

    Also since you are new, how about starting an intro thread?
