    Hi all,

    I've been at this all day. I've been trying to get something other than the Android System Recovery on my screen. I wiped my phone back to a factory reset after using Online Nandroid Manager to make a backup. I've reinstalled several things including all of the programs mentioned here. I've been using quickboot, recovery reboot from inside clockworkmod and vol up + power + home, and nothing works. TWRP would work, but it hangs on startup with "Please wait while we set things up".

    Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4 SCH-I545
    Clockwork Mod Version:

    I would like to restore my Nandroid backup, but that's only possible if I can escape the Android System Recovery screen and can get to a real Recovery screen (or so I understand).

    Any help is appreciated.

    AT&T or Verizon phone? You can't replace the recovery, because you can't unlock the bootloader. Go to AT&T, Canadian Bell, Rogers, Telus, Virgin Samsung Galaxy S 4 - XDA Forums or Verizon Samsung Galaxy S 4 - XDA Forums and see if there's a Safestrap for your phone (it intercepts the boot process and runs a modified TWRP).
