          Have you installed Samsung USB driver?

          • Marcus Foo

            ya i had installed samsung usb driver
            i sucess yesterday but the version of firmware was china ver., cant open fb ,insta.
            so i tried once again, but failed this time.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com/ Jayce Ooi

              Hmm… Is your China model? If so, I don’t think that you can install other country firmware. China only can.

              • Marcus Foo

                my s4 are Malaysia model

                • http://www.jayceooi.com/ Jayce Ooi

                  Hmm… You should not install China firmware then. Hopefully, it does not change pit partition size. Try latest Malaysia firmware see.
