    First, apologies if this has been solved somewhere on the forum, as I haven't been able to find it.

    My rooted Verizon S4 became unstable a few weeks ago; random re-starts, bizarre battery draining, inability to re-start unless connected to a charger, etc.. I did a factory reset and the problems persisted. I installed Kies and downloaded the original stock ROM, but Kies was unable to connect to my device. After poking around online, I ran Odin and tried to flash the stock ROM that way. Here's how that went:

    <ID:0/004> FAIL! (Auth)
    <ID:0/004> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    Now when I start the phone, I get the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." message. Only Kies won't connect to my phone so I have no idea how to proceed.

    If anyone has any suggestions, please help! I'm sure I left out some pertinent details, so let me know what else I need to tell you...
