    What you'll have to do is try a factory reset. See if that clears any issues and allows boot. If that doesn't work. You'll need to download Odin. Then get the factory software and flash it via Odin. That will fully wipe your device and start completely fresh. Head over to xda-developers and find the Rogers version of the S4 subforum. You should get all the info you need there.

    I believe that is just a stock Rom. So that basically means you're rooted. But I could be wrong. I'm not sure if Rogers locks down their bootloaders but if not. Unlock it and flash whatever you want.

    I would just try and get Odin and get your device working first

    You'll need Odin. It isn't a zip file to flash. What you're doing is loading the factory image back onto the device. You'll need Odin as that is the tool needed to get the job done. Sit tight and I'll look for an xda-developers link for you

    Check out that thread. Make sure you read about what to do first. It's not that difficult just take your time. If that isn't your current build then I'm sure the right one will be within that S4 subforum somewhere. Just click around. Best of luck!

    Odin is strictly a PC application that will flash the factory image you need to download.

    Just search to see if there is a tool that will unlock it. When it's locked down, it really limits the amount of development available to you and how much development can actually be done. I have Verizon. They lock down everything

    Can't find what? The factory image? Odin? Odin isn't model specific. Only the factory images used with it

    From what I believe. Your device is GSM. Rogers is found under the ATT subforum. Just check to see if the current ATT build will work for your device. Then you can download and flash that.

    Remember to flash the file in the PDA slot when in Odin.
