    I get error while trying to start phone with power on, or even into recovery/download mode.
    "System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help."
    This happened after trying to flash CM10 through ROM manager app. I keep reading try to flash via Odin but I cant get into download mode for my phone to even show up on Odin. Help?

    Can't be of any help to you unfortunately, but I'm honestly just stunned reading your post. Hope you get it back up and running.

    Steps to remember lol --> Odin to stock --> Take the OTA --> Root --> Unlock Bootloader --> Install Recovery --> Flash away! I got myself with the same error the other day haha.

    This is really helpful but the thing is I don't know how to root via Odin because I cant get phone to show up in Odin. It does not go into recovery mode/download mode. When I Vol Up + Home + Power it comes up in blue on top left corner saying recovery booting..then it goes back to the error.

    How did you get your phone back into download/recovery to use Odin?

    I just did a battery pull and left it out for 30 seconds. After I put in battery I held volume down + home button and power. Phone will vibrate and then go to some warning text at which step you hit volume up to continue into download mode.
