Galaxy S4 Stock Firmware

This is a list of Galaxy S4 stock firmwares. (will be updating as we go along if you don’t see stock firmware for your model, e-mail zedomax [at] gmail dot com)

Using the following S4 stock firmwares will allow you to:

  • Unroot your Galaxy S4 and remove root.
  • Restore stock ROM/firmware on your S4.
  • Reset everything back to 100% stock.
  • Restore stock recovery and remove TWRP or CWM recovery.
  • Get you on a fresh start if you messed up your S4.
  • Fix bootloops where your phone gets stuck on logo.

You can use ODIN to flash these stock firmwares.  If you don’t know how to do this, please see How to Unroot Galaxy S4!

What is a Custom ROM?

A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.

With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.

How to Install Custom ROMs

First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

    Given a litle more time, could you please include links for stock firmware for some of the “no so major” carriers like USCellular?? I know you can’t carry every one, but USC is a major carrier in the eastern north carolina region and it certainly would be nice to see this without having to piggyback off Verizon’s ROM and such..

    • Michael says:

      I completely agree. Or piggy back off of Sprint’s. Although in all fairness we do have but I would love to see USCC get some love here…since I watch a lot of his awesome videos. Stoked about getting my S4 through USCC as soon as they drop the 32GB version.

      • Max Lee says:

        • Ty says:

          Hey Max, Im subed to your youtube channel. I really enjoy your videos very informative. I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 4.4.2 1337. After rooting ive had tones of issues this is how I discovered you. So just checking out different apps I DLed rootchecker pro the paid version. it informed me that “Root access was not granted or not given” screen. So it only says Im rooted but Im not and it seems my who OS is corrupt. Ive even tried to restore factory. no go. please help me .

          plz help me out here i want stock firmware for sgh-i337m lollipop region=unknown
          can u provide me with that

        • Mark Osborne says:

          I have a USC S4 (SCH-R970) It is backed up rooted and custom ROMed 🙂
          I want to use it with any carrier can anyone help?
          USC say they cannot unlock it or are just not willing and Samsung say they cannot as they have an agreement with providers and so it is against their policy.
          I think that after 12 months all phones should be automatically unlocked it is not just on principal but an ecological level.
          I have nothing left to lose by trying anything even if it bricks the device.

          Thanks in advance

  2. Neil says:

    Was wondering if the stock at&t would be the same as what I get on Telus in canada? Or does it add at&t stuff also, have the l337 model here.

  3. Vlad says:

    Any news on getting T-Mobile Stock Firmware?
    Just want to be sure it’s available and I need to return the phone.
    Don’t want to root before

  4. chad wycoff says:

    Would like to see US cellular as well thanks

  5. John says:

    I have the I337 on a smaller carrier in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. The carrier is MTS. Any chance there will be a stock firmware available for this carrier?

  6. Vlad says:

    Good work
    Still waiting for T-Mobile firmware
    Quick question, This firmware you posting, are they official builds?
    Otherwise I’m sure you know, it still says “custom” not “official” in phone.

  7. Vlad says:

    Could anyone confirm, looks like this is Official T-Mobile Stock firmware that came with T-Mobile GS4.

    • Max Lee says:

      Yup that’s official alright, thx I am downloading now.

      Can someone please help me? Can’t find rooting method for the U.S att versions Sgh-I337. Tried motochopper even thought it stated will definitely work, does not. The problem is the newest 4.3 jellybean update that just came out locks b the bootloader and people advertise on xda- Developers site will work with newest update but b it does not.
      I am a experienced rooter, been doing this for years on various models and the gs4 1337 has been and is the most complicated model by far. If someone can help me I would v really appreciate it. Can’t put b the kit kat rom on the device without rooting it first. Thanks!

    to flash stock firmware do i have to do it thru odin?

    • Neil says:

      Ya is a video up showing using Odin, using pda and stock firmware . Question windows shows the unzipped firmware as an image file not a tar.file . Anyone know how to adjust that so Odin see it properly ?

  9. Neil says:

    the telus download button is greyed out would love to have that one ?

  10. Neil says:

    K got the stock tls can firmware and did a factory reset, worked sweet from a soft brink. In the mean time managed to get my sim thrown out with the Chinese food from dinner. will need to pick up a new one today. Did resolve what ever I did previuosly and now have 9.06 gig of space left on my internal mem compared to the 2.5 gig it was showing previously until redoing the firware. Side note: be carefull twrp , complete wipe in advanced took out everything and made so just had samsung galaxy s4 on my screen, till found the new firmware. Thx for the video tutorials and links Max, helped allot.

  11. Albert Lujan says:

    Max and to the developers,
    I am sure you are very busy but get some Roms for the S4. I can not wait for some to popping out for the Sprint S4.

    Thanks for all that y’all do,,

  12. chawk70 says:

    can i flash the tmobile rom on my unlocked at&t s4

  13. fusion says:

    My phone shows that it has been modified and will not allow me to do any software updates due to it’s modification.

    3 Questions:
    – Will this stock firmware make everything stock and official?
    – What is the procedure to flash this on the S4?
    – Do we still use Odin?

    • RMan says:

      Since I don’t see any replies to your questions I think I can answer a couple. I am on Sprint.

      Will this stock firmware make everything stock and official? It will make it stock but not official; You will need reset the binary counter to go back to official. I used Triangle Away
      What is the procedure to flash this on the S4? You need to do an unroot and go back to your original stock ROM,
      Do your OTA update, then re root… I have not done this myself because Im not confident that I will be able to reroot
      with the new update installed. At least for the Spint S4.

      Im know Im not Max and I am just sharing what I have learned myself, Please research this information further for
      yourself before attempting.
      I do know that Triangle Away does work the Sprint S4 MDC version build to reset your binary counter and take it back to Official

      • jamie says:

        Triangle away app does work with updated mdl update, then factory reset to be back to official. Yes you need to use odin to flash this firmware. After you unroot and ota update, use cf auto root to root again. Will be stock rooted and you can install custom recovery through goo manager if you want twrp, or clockwork mod through other ways included in this website.

  29. Johnny says:

    I rooted my s4 (at&t i337) and deleted some bloatware (chaton, play books, play music). Apparently something that I deleted messed up my S Voice app. If i download the i337 firmware (above) and boot in clockworkmod recovery and flash that firmware, will it be back to normal? Meaning, will all the bloatware be back on it and hopefully fix my S Voice problem?

    • Max Lee says:

      use ODIN instead of CWM and should work.

    • RMan says:

      Once you get everything working again. You might just try freezing the apps before you
      delete them to see what effect it will have. Titanium backup has a freeze feature.

  30. Curtis says:

    Hey Max

    How do I flash this stock firmware (ATT i337) with CWM ? I tried to do it over the Wicked Rom i had installed, but it said that the installation was aborted… Please help.


  31. Matt says:


    Could you make a video demonstrating how to restore your S4 completely to stock and get rid of the custom unlock icon afterwards?


  32. Dushan says:

    How can I find out what version my S4 is? When it boots up it should say on the startup screen, but it dosnt. Is there an app that will give me this info?

    • RMan says:

      Go to “settings”; then pick “more” and scroll to “about” and all your phone information
      is there.

  33. Alfredo says:

    Any word on the Verizon firmware yet? SCH-I545

  38. ANATA says:

    Can i flash this rom to anohther gagdet?
    etc, China SMartphone or LG which not been realese for jb 4.2.2

  39. Johnny says:

    Ok i had my phone rooted then I unroot it with the Odin method n stock firmware. But there’s a problem when I wipe cache in stock recovery. my phone automatically reboot. Why is that.? I’m thinking rooting my phone again to try that new wicked rom on the m919. What’s the successful step to flash everything all over with the root again? I’m worried having problem with my clockwork because last time I try to root my super binary fail 🙁 . Dat why i unroot it first of all n now wipe cache crash on stock. Whattttt do I do!?

  40. Dave says:

    here’s a (probably) noob question. i have an M919. rooted using TWRP method. then i downloaded a bunch of apps, including ROM Manager. I used ROM Manager (which uses CWM) to flash a euroskank ROM. works fairly well (not getting data at the moment). when i try to flash back to my stock ROM backup, i see an “error restoring /data” and the restore exits. the phone won’t boot in this state. can i follow your methodology for “unroot” and flash stock ROM via ODIN to get a stable stock ROM back? will i still have root, or do i need to re-root? will i still have that backed-up euroskank ROM after i perform all of this? i can get into recovery and flash and reflash and flash again. only ROM that works for me right now is the euroskank.

    any insights will be helpful and are welcome!

  41. Anthony says:

    If you could get the Verizon stock firmware that would be greatly appreciated!

  42. Josh says:

    When will the US Verizon Stock Firmware be up? Or is another one compatible with it?

    Thank y oi u for everything youve done!


  44. Renny says:

    Hey Max,

    Thanks for your great tutorials, I’ve been trying to flash back to stock rogers rom using ODIN. It keeps saying pass, but I’m stuck in a bootloop. Can you help?

  45. Ward says:

    Any word whether there will ever be a stock firmware (from the google S4s recently released) that we can install on the branded S4 models?

  46. Ryan says:

    First…thanks for all the awesome work! Next…do you have some sort of link set up for donations or anything? I used 2 of your walk-throughs for rooting my phone and installing cwm on my s4 which both worked flawlessly. Thanks!

  47. trojan_m2 says:

    Please help! While rooting my phone Odin ‘failed’ so I removed the USB and now my phone is stuck in “odin mode” and says that “firmware upgrade encountered and issue. Please select recovery mode in kies and try again.” Please help!

  48. Crsmejia says:

    For Canadian S4s Youtube can just download one of those firmwares and use the CSC code function *#272*imei# to change your bloat ware carrier package. PMC is the one that is the cleanest. PMC is Public Mobile.

  49. Marcus says:

    I followed the instructions precisely but it didn’t seem to root properly. Root checker gives me no response and when I try to launch Super User, I get the following message. “There isno SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem!”. I’m using TMobile S4, model: SGH-M919. Any advice?

  50. Mohamad Moussa says:

    Hi Max,

    I downloaded the Telus Stock firmware and Flashed it on my Galaxy S4. It Flashed Ok and everything is working, but If I connect it to Kies, it says that the current firmware is not support, and also there is Bell Apps on the phone! How is that possible?


    • Steve Punter says:

      In actual fact the Rogers, Bell, and Telus versions are IDENTICAL. If you look at the root directory of any of these phones, even directly from the store, you’ll find ALL of the bloatware APK files are in there. Presumably the installation detects which network you are on and installs the appropriate components. Somehow it seems that yours mistakenly thought you have a Bell Mobility S4.

      Have you tried a re-install? Maybe the mistake was a one-time thing.

  51. martin says:

    I flashed the correct Rogers stock on a Rogers bought and branded S4.
    After the Samsung splash the phone stalls with Samsung across the screen. Evertyhing was fine with the download and ODIN etc, I thought I was good to go.
    I have tried re-start and battery pull but nothing gets me past this screen
    Can anyone get my phone back, pls?

  52. computerkidt says:

    Please add stock firmware for cricket gs4 my phone atm is a brick till i get my hands on a copy.

Not sure if someone knows how to take out the aboot file or fix this error otherwize or can get a stock cricket firmware.

  54. Steven Chew says:

    I got a GTi19505 and like Marcus, followed exactly to your instructions using the CWM method but the super Su cannot be updated. It says ‘installation failed. There is a problem!” I then tried the TWRP method and the same problem with the superSU. what should I do next? Your kind assistance appreciated. Thanks

    Can anyone help!! My sch i545 is bricked??

  58. Joshua says:

    I need stock firmware for Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S4 SCH-i545. I attempted rooted, and I was successful. However, used a new uninstaller app to replace my old one that I managed to somehow remove original stock components in the software that have disabled several features on my phone!!!

    Any ideas? Please help! I need to execute a complete wipe or fresh install of the original factory software? If so, any idea where to find?

    Thank you in advance!!!!!!

  59. Anthony says:

    Hi Max,

    I have a Verizon galaxy s4. I rooted my phone but I used super user to uninstall the root. However, I still have clockwork mod recovery on the phone whenever I try to boot into recovery. Will this delete clockwork mod recovery??? I want clockwork mod recovery to be removed because it will not allow me to update my software version when the phone asks to install it, clockwork mod doesn’t allow it?

    • Max Lee says:

      Yes stock recovery will delete CWM recovery. If you are not returning for warranty but just want the latest update, go check the S4 thread on XDA as there should be a CWM flashable rooted stock ROM with the updates which you won’t lose root. I will also try to post those soon on this site.

  60. Anthony says:

    Hi Max

    so I completely got my phone back to stock firmware and factory restored it. But now when I go to update the phone it will boot into stock recovery, start installing the update and then will say UPDATE FAILED. Every time I try it does the same thing PLEASEE HELP. Should I take it to verizon??

  61. Mustafa says:

    What about galaxy s4 gt-19500???

  62. Dan says:

    lets say i installed the stock Android ROM on my GS4, but i didnt like it, and wanted ToucWiz back. How do i do this? do i have to do the whole process like i did to install the stock rom (restore, wipe, etc.), or can i just restore a backup of TouchWiz without going through all the steps?

    • Max Lee says:

      You can restore your backup ROM, that’s the easiest way and why you made a backup ROM in the first place. 🙂

  63. mike says:

    I’ll start by saying, you’re the man. I have a fully rooted galaxy s4 and afully rooted evo 4g thanks to the simple fact you existed to make my life a lot easier. with that being said, I have 3 issues

    1 I had to go digging on xda for the native hotspot mod….it took hours. I wish you had of just listed it here LOL
    because the native hotspot mod is with out a shadow of a doubt THE BEST and if at all the only reason to root your GS4. even after rooting seeing as wifi tether app sucks balls in terms of speed and accuracy. I’m actually posting this on my native hotspot now.

    2 when i try to install lbe privacy guard my phone goes the hell and becomes non fuctional. crashes galore

    3 problem to might be related to the fact the the kernal you listed to enable cwm mdl rooting method to work is extremely outdated and flawed. It would be nice to have a more stable/better stock kernal listen on your site.

    thanks again, you’re awesome,

  64. a3andrew says:

    Anyway you can re-upload the US Verizon Firmware? I’m able to download but when i extract the files it immediately says its corrupt. TIA.

  65. Jorge says:

    thanks for the post… great job!!!
    i’m from mexico and i’ve like to know wich firmware is clean don`t matter if comes in English… or recommend a rom to the sgh-I337M from mexico.

  66. nabin koirala says:

    Hi i had a “camera failed” problem in my s4 and i did everything from reseting my phone to changing the camera but still not working ? .. i did the hardware test too but still have the same problem i even root my s4 and put custom rom from your site still my camera won’t work can you sagest any other way to fix my camera ?
    my front camera work in hardware test thought its the back one that is not working …..

    • Max Lee says:

      If your camera is not working with stock ROM, that’s a faulty camera, try taking it to store for warranty fix.

  72. Mat says:


    Since you’re the expert I’m in need of some help. I have the SCH-i545 and have rooted and installed HyperDrive ROM. My issue is that the phone keeps hanging up at the ‘custom’ screen showing the unlock and just stays there. I than have to boot to recovery, fix permissions, and it will boot normal.

    No matter which custom ROM I flash I end up with issues where it won’t install certain apps like twitter or G+ saying invalid pkg file etc.

    Long story, still waaaay too long, I want to go back to the unrooted stock ROM if possible but I have a Mac with the 2.66GHz XEON processors so you can’t use BootCamp to install Windows for ODIN.

    Are there ANY possible instructions for how I can restore this thing to stock on my Mac by chance? Your help would be really appreciated.

    Have a great night!

  73. MIKE says:

    max never replied to my initial post HOWEVER i would like everyone looking at this section to know that the newest touch wiz jelly bean rom kernel for the gs4 was released on xda’s website not too long ago and let me tell you, IT IS FLAWLESS. I couldnt be happier with this kernel. flash player mod is now working for me! the kernal max has listed on this website is ridiculously flawed. I know this is not his fault. HOWEVER, the purpose of this site is to keep new comers like myself, up to date on the status of root related topics. if you’re just going to leave up old info from may 2013 when it’s now august 2013 then whats the point…… any way, here’s a link to the latest stock rom kernel for sprint gs4.

    one last thing….if I had never went to the gs4 root page before going to the cwm root page I would have never known I needed a new kernel in the first place and would have most likely bricked my phone…..I read way too many comments where spring gs4 users were complaining that they were not establishing root using cwm recovery, and I beleive it’s because most of then didn’t install a custom kernel because they might have gone directly to the cwm page and never seen the gs4 root page. hope that made sense i will post linkts to help show what I am talking about

    galaxy s4 root page showing link to (outdated) kernel needed for root using cwm method


    “”UPDATE: For those of you with T-Mobile’s latest UVUAMDL firmware or Sprint’s latest VPUAMDL firmware, this root method will not work. BUT, you can use CWM or TWRP method below along with kernel fix to root. (See Sprint Kernel fix and T-Mobile Kernel fix)””

    cwm method root page not explaining or showing any necessary kernel needed for sprint users.

    see what i mean? if I were a random new root user, and i decided to to use cwm method, I would have never known to download a new kernel and I would fail at rooting my phone as so many others have done.

    Hey, i have a fido smasung galaxy s4. The model is SGH – 1337M
    Will the rogers firmware work for it?

  79. tyebrea says:

    I am very new to doing these kind of things. I have the galaxy s4 and so far I’ve successfully rooted my phone and I have gotten the team win recovery project up and running as well. I have’nt found a rom yet that I like enough to flash so for now I want to stay on the stock firmware. I want to update to the latest stock firmware for my phone, which I’ve downloaded from your website.
    I dont want to do this wrong of course. Can I use the twrp to install the firmware update?


      • tyebrea says:


        So I downloaded and flashed the file that you suggested successfully. Everything is working properly EXCEPT my music app. You the default music player that came on the phone? Every time I try to play a song it force closes and says “music app has stopped unexpectedly”
        Did I do something wrong?
        After I installed the file I realized that the update brought back some of the apps that I uninstalled with Titanium back up. Apps like audible and amazon bookstore. The ones that came with the phone that I wouldn’t be using. I don’t think I would have uninstalled something I needed for my phone to function properly but I could be wrong.
        Should I try to reinstall the update?

    Please help I believe i have bricked my phone. When you turn on the power all it does in vibrate and nothing else no samsung screen at all. I can get in to download mode and I have used odin to flash stock firmware and was successful but when it goes to reboot it does the same thing and just vibrates it will also not let me get into stock recovery please help.

    • Mark Osborne says:

      I had this problem after flashing rooting, I put it on charge ready for the Custom ROM and it drained 🙂
      plugging it into a different usb port on the PC let it charge and once over 30% was able to turn it on. left it to fully charge and flashed away NO problems.
      Hope it helps

    Hey Max,

    I’ve been following these Galaxy domains since the S2 days, love your work!
    My question today is would it be possible to perform a SIM network unlock using the workaround method in ServiceMode for a previous firmware version that AT&T patched up in the MF3 update?

  88. Heatshiver says:

    Thank you for hosting the Verizon stock firmware (older version). I wasn’t able to find anything even stating USA on Sam Mobile…

  89. Derek says:

    So the Sprint MF9 Firmware is not listed anywhere on this site? I know it’s not a huge deal to install the older version, then update, but it seems like the MF9 stock ROM should be available for download somewhere, right? I was going to try to obtain it via Kies, but when I am asked for my serial number, I enter it (with the phone unplugged), and it says the number I’ve entered is incorrect? So, does anyone know where to find the stock MF9 complete package (recovery, rom, etc.)? Just wanting this to have on hand in the event of needing to take phone in for warranty…

    • Rob Man says:

      You can use your recovery to restore your phone back to stock (what ever version had), then unroot; get the OTA updates to MF9. make a new backup, re-root then if you need it you will have it on hand.

      I personally always thought that was too much trouble and figured as long as I went back to at least the version that it came with that the most they could do is raise and eyebrow and ask why I never updated it. At that point I would just tell them I don’t like doing OTA’s because of a bad experience in the past or some BS like that.

      Most likely I will have an insurance claim before a warrantee…… around here we use “Bricks” for wheel chock’s.

    • j says:

      Go to, you need the latest firmware from there. Put your phone model in (sph-l720) and mf9 firmware will show up. Try that

      • Android User says:

        I’m assuming you mean… and those links are for registered users only. What exactly is it that you’re pointing me to? Another stock-like rom?

  94. j says:

    You can register for free. If your looking to get back to the latest sprint stock (no root, like if you’re buying a new phone) firmware (rom) then this is the best way to go. You also need odin to do this. Follow the directions in this website about going back to stock firmware. Does this help? It’s easy to register in also.

  95. j says:

    By the way the firmware that’s on this site is the original firmware when the phone came out in May. You’ll get the latest the way I explained.

  96. j says:

    Go there and click join at the top right of screen and then go click on the firmware tab at the top of page and enter your device number (sph-l720) in the box asking for that info, should be to the right of page also. You should be good then.

  97. j says:

    Use the Sprint, not the unknown one.

  99. Rocky says:

    Hi i have a question. I have an S4 with the new 4.2.2 MG1 update, when i try to unlock it using the “Service Menu” unlock method, using MG1 firmware it will NOT go to the service menu hence rendering the phone unlockable via the “free” way. I don’t want to buy an unlock code: So i want to downgrade the S4’s firmware to MDJ and unlock it via the Service Menu method. My question is, can i flash the above downloaded roms on the S4 using the Stock Recovery? (As i don’t want to raise the flash counter by using Odin and than voiding the warranty)

    • Rob Man says:

      As for the Flash(Binary) counter, It can be reset with Triangle Away. But you have to unroot anyway if you take it in for warranty.

      What carrier? Start with finding the carrier and model of your S4. You can then follow the instructions for those. Your most of the stock firmware listed above have been updated since originally released.

  106. Frank says:

    Can you please update all firmware (especially sprint) to 4.3. I really need to unroot my s4.

    Btw, if you have a rom like cyanogenmod and you unroot and factory reset your device, will the rom still be there ?because I want to go back to stock rom and start over

    • Jamie says:

      Yes you actually have to flash a different firmware (ROM) to get rid of that ROM. Go here and sign up it’s free and you’ll get the exact firmware that is straight from samsung for sprint.

      Click join at the top right and then go through the steps. Then enter your device, model number in the search device here section (can’t miss it) and if it’s sprint then it’s SPH-L720. Choose the latest which is the L720VPUEMJA, pick the sprint one under the carrier section. Takes a little while to download you have three different selections to choose how you want to download, you’ll see. Then flash through odin. You can also look through xda-developers website and look through the forums and find some stock stuff there, but I found the samsung website to be the easiest. By the way you will lose root doing this and custom recovery, every thing will go back to completely stock, completely like you just bought the phone.

      Good luck!

    i own a galaxys4 I9505 google play edition.
    for some reason i wanted to have multi window and i rooted the device
    from that point on. i probably did something wrong and Watchon and some other samsung apps will not install saying my device is not compatible.

    also i got an update for kitkat however it fails to install.

    i used SU app to unroot the device them restored the device to the original factory . yet still will not update the new kitkat and still same errors with apps.

    can you please reach out and guide me how to fix this?
    when i called google play. they agreed to send me a new phone and just want me to send this one back. is this the best thing for me to do?

    or is there a way to make this happen witout all the shipping and time consuming things to follow.

    thank you so much for your help.

  111. Jake says:

    i also forgot to ask in the first post. if the kitkat update was downloaded to my phone yet fails to install. can i try to install it manually? would you know in to which folder it was downloaded too?

      i fixed the problem installing the CMW again with odin, tryed to install the file downloaded through CMW and failed, any advice.

      • Jamie says:

        I have fixed this issue before. You have to download the newest update zip from Join, it’s free, type in phone model number, download may take a bit depending on the download you choose. Then get back into download mode, use Odin and you should be good.

        • Edwin says:

          I did as you said, download the lastest version from, odin report no error in the procedure of flash, but when the cel turns on, it stay on the message that says T MOBILE 4G LTE, is taking to long, i don’t know what to do, any advice?

          • Jamie says:

            How long? It does a factory reset automatically, so it could take a minute to get past the initial boot after the install. Are you talking about the initial boot up?

  117. AndroidRob says:

    The references to SamMobile for obtaining ROMs for the Galaxy S4 are really useless: it simply has links to TeraFile and RapidGator. TeraFile links to ROMs are gone, and the RapidGator links appear to be something that is not valid, plus they want you to pay to be a “premium” member (with no guarantee that you will get the file that you want).

  118. Alex CS says:

    Hello, I just seen the videos on Youtube on how to root, still not sure i feel confident to do so, but i will read again and maybe give it a try…. I got a small question, have you got any clean roms from Samsung, like complete stock, from no carrier? I am writting to you from Spain, Ive got a GT-9505 with ORANGE ESPANA, does this methods work the same for any mobile carrier, or does the US have a different system in place? Then last but not least, how do i backup my ROM form Orange so incase i want to revert i can? Thanks, sorry for the newbie qestions.



    • Rob Man says:

      Once rooted you can just keep the ROM from your carrier and freeze or remove the parts you don’t like. This can be done using Titanium Backup. Always freeze the app or process before removing it to see what affect it has on the phone.

      You will most likely want a ROM for your device and compatible with your carrier.

      You will want to backup with Titanium Backup and make a backup with your recovery Clock Work Mod or TWRP.

  119. bstiller says:

    Hello! I recently put Omni on my Sprint S4, went to return to stock with a one click odin option (stupidly). The one click option failed, with a firmware error message at boot. I was able to access CWM and install a custom ROM, now though my phone won’t send or receive calls no matter what ROM I install (even one’s that were previously working perfectly). Please help!! I love my s4, and would be happy to have it totally stock, I just don’t know how to get it there. None of the stock firmware links work. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Rob Man says:

      What model and carrier is your S4?

      What ROM did you install? If it wasn’t a TouchWiz ROM you may need to install the correct GAPPS file.

      If you did install GAPPS be sure you flash the ROM then Flash the GAPPS at the same time (No reboots between)

      I hope this helps.

I am leaning towards google play but I really like the stock camera on touchwiz anyway to have it ported?

    After a very long process I have figured out the source of a major pain for the last several months. I had once rooted my galaxy s4 a year ago and later unrooted it, however it still shows the custom unlock screen at boot up. The phone started not connecting to calls unless on bluetooth. Speakers and all fine. Couldn’t hear ringing or anything. Same for the recipient. Force stopping the bluetooth share app and the phone app and restarting the phone twice sometimes worked. After a few factory reset attemps and installing apps, etc one at a time I figured out it happens after accepting the OTA update from AT&T. I deny it but it is sneaky and today I restarted the phone and forgot to look for it before it was too late. Had to reset it again. Here are my questions:
    1. Could this be because it was rooted before?
    2. If so, can you tell me the easiest way to truly get the phone back to stock? Factory image where the custom screen no longer appears?
    3. Can I do this on a mac? I do not own a pc.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Hey maxx,

    I have a big problem and I’m very scared. I rooted my T-Mobile sgh-m919 galaxy s4 . so I got rely excited and flashed cyanganmod 11 on it with cwm and I forgot to restore my original stock ROM. I’m having a lot of problems now so I wanted to go back to normal. I flashed a stock firmware on to it but now its stuck at the tmobile 4glte logo. I even did a factory reset. Please reply with help. I really need right now. If max doesn’t answer can some else please do but now. Thank you.

      I replied earlier but I see it didn’t post.

      The best thing to try is to boot to recovery, reflash you last known good ROM. Be sure to do a clean wipe.

      If you reload a Touch Wiz (Stock or built on Stock version) ROM you won’t need to load GAPPS, other ROMS requre you to flash the correct version for your ROM.

      You can also try loading a backup if you have one. If not then you might want to make sure you always make a backup. Make it of ant ROM you use especially after you get it setup and working properly. That way if it gets flaky you go back to it.

      If you don’t want /can’t get it working, there are services that will fix it for around $30
      Good Luck

  152. Ryan says:

    Hi, I currently have a Verizon S4 that I am using a T-Mobile Sim card in. One huge issue is that I cant use my mobile hotspot. I searched somewhere else and saw that I may need to install a T-Mobile Rom. My phone is currently rooted but I don’t really care about keeping the root. It was only in hopes of changing the settings for the Mobile Hotspot. Do you think that it would be okay to switch my Verizon Rom for a T-Mobile one?

  153. Charles says:

  157. Sri says:


    Newbie here. Please help. I have a rooted AT&T S4 with I337UCUAMF3 Baseband. I am trying to unroot so I can finally upgrade to kitkat. I tried to install UCUAMDL firmware to return to stock so I can get an OTA upgrade. However ODIN keeps throwing the FAIL message. Can someone please help? Here are a few questions?

    1. I haven’t run the triangle away app. But I never installed a custom recovery or ROM. Also the download shows I am on Samsung Official. Do I still need to run Triangle Away
    2. Can I directly use 4.4.2 stock rom without going back to 4.2.2 stock?
    3. I want to stick to stock mainly for the Samsung’s camera app. Is there another comparable camera that offers similar features like HDR, portrait modes, etc?

    Thanks in Advance

    • Rob Man says:

      Does ODIN recognise your connection and show a ID COM in the window(i.e. 0:[COM3] on mine. Your number may differ)?
      IF not you may need to change USB cables or even ports in the computer. Do NOT try it through a USB Hub.
      You can download the Stock Firmware if you want to totally unroot or if you want to run the Stock ROM but stay rooted, you can download a Rooted Stock ROM.
      I have had many problems during my rooting attemptes in the past. Be sure that you get a good file download and that you extract the .tar file before you add it to ODIN. If you are going to unroot and flash a stock ROM.
      Also keep in mind that I was on Sprint and NOT ATT so I can’t give you a great deal of detailed steps.
      I just wanted to help as this page isn’t being updated much. In that regard please post your solution when you find it to help others that visit. You can find me on G+ at

      • Sri says:

        Thanks Rob. Yes. The USB connection was fine. And I unzipped and used the MD5 file. But after I hit start after a minute or so I get the FAIL message rather than getting the green status bar of PASS message.

        • Rob Man says:

          I just flashed mine back to stock 2 days ago, so I could change carriers. I had to download the files 3 times to get one that worked. Also if you’re using ODIN 3.07 it defaults with a check in the “F.Reset Time” box. Mine wouldn’t work untill I took that out.

    Hi all,
    I have root my S4 and after few days a “ATT contact Address Book” error raised up. So i used titanium app to back up contact app then restored it when i couldn’t see the phone app. But After restoring “Unfortunately contacts has stopped” error popped up, by searching google i cleared cache and cleared data and it didn’t work final option is to factory reset. I did Factory Reset and it sucked still more with new loop error “android.process.acore has stopped” which made me frustrated and finally I turned off the “contact storage” in application manager which solved the loop.

    My present Problems are
    1)Couldn’t Add any contacts even though i downloaded contact+ app from play store
    2)Can i bring back my phone to original position
    3)Will changing 4.4.4 to 4.4.2 solve my problem

    Not sure if this has been covered already. I bought a rooted Verizon Galaxy S4 from a friend and am using it on Crickets network. I know Cricket is on AT&T’s network.
    My question is.. can you use the AT&T stock firmware on the Verizon phone or do I have to use the stock Verizon firmware?

    I have SGS4 Verizon with 4.4.2.

What if I will downgrade to 4.2.2? Can I install CM 12 and other custom ROMs then?
    Thanks for quick reply in advance!

    I have Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-1337 with SW-VER: I337UCUAMDL (at least that is what is written on the box) but i had rooted it and installed safestrap with custom rom. I wanted to remove it to stock so I used ODIN but I accidentally used the “AT&T Galaxy S4 SGH-I337 UCUFNB1 (Android 4.4.2) ” firmware and now my phone shows “USB connector connected” everytime I turn on and when I connect USB cable, it doesn’t detect it. It seems like it is charging still as my battery was charged fully overnight when it was left plugged in. Is there a way to install the firmware that came with factory or am I stuck like this?

    Thank you for any help in advance

    I am not sure if this is a US or Canadian phone but the phone is unlocked and I can root. My question is, can I flash a Canadian Bell rom onto this phone. I have tried to do this and odin says it is a good rom but it won’t flash to my phone.

    I have a Galaxy S4 AT&T phone unlocked and running a Bell sim card baseband version i337UCUFNB1 android 4.2.2 Build number KOT49H.i337UCUFNB1
    I was wondering if it is possible to flash a Canadian Bell rom to this phone i have tried with odin and no success so i am wondering if perhaps i need to flash a different kernel to the phone.
    Anybody have an idea ?

  196. Sass says:

    Thanks again… This was the only firmware that worked!

  197. Mo says:

    I accidentally flashed I377UCUFNB1 4.4.2 in my S4 i377, I believe it locks the bootloader..right?
    is it possible to go back to 4.2.2 to unlock the bootloader?
    my phone is rooted, uninstalled knox,

  198. jlkkljh says:

    i have an sch-i545 that i attempted to install an older kernel, after rooting, and after boot it shows 2 screens:
    SYS REV CHECK FAIL[K] : Refer 1 > Binary 0
    SECURE: SECURE MAGIC failure (boot.img)


    This is old binary. Please update latest binary

    (Yellow exclamation point triangle)

    a couple questions, would flashing or stock rom fix this?
    if the above answer is no, how would i go about doing so?
    thanks in advance guys
