    earlier i wanted to get the philiz 6.0 recovery for my samsung s4 GT-I9500 using odin , odin worked perfectly,however i cannot access my recovery mode. the phone works fine,however when i try to access recovery (using volume up+home+powerbutton) it hangs on the part where it says "Samsung S4 GT-I9500) and it stays there ( i tried leaving it for 5 hours like that). i tried removing the battery and doing it. i tried doing it while restarting. nothing worked. so, i tried to go back and return my phone to factory settings. of course since i can't access recovery, i have to use Samsung Kies 3( since i am 4.42) when i tried doing firmware upgrade and initialization, it gave me an error reading: Samsung GT-I9500 does not support initialization.
    p.s i wanted to get philiz in the first place so i can get cyanogen mod 12. doing it using philiz recovery seemed simpler than the other ways.
    p.p.s i have two questions 1) how do i get into my recovery and if that is not possible then 2) how do i get samsung Kies to initialize my phone.
