    Welcome canuto186, what model S4 do you have. If you can't do a factory reset you could odin back the factory firmware but I need to know which model you have to give anymore assisstance.

    Hello everybody, I got the same problem I think. My Galaxy S4 GTi9500 is FAKE, no doubt at all. My uncle recently gave it to me because he bought it for himself but he notice that and so... Now it's mine. The problem starts when I realize the mobile got problems to connect WLAN, and KIES don't recognize the phone either via USB to upgrade firmware, reset the mobile, nothing, so there's no help for me.

    The buttons trick Vol Up + Home + Power doesn't work, neither the secret codes. The only way aparently is... with the damn password that off course, I don't have. ¿You have and idea of how can we fix it?

    Welcome to the forum

    It doesn't sound good, and you may just be out of luck. This is probably not much help but this is how to tell you have a fake S4.
