The phone turns ON but does not go beyond the Samsung logo

You can sometimes get out of a boot loop by taking out your battery, and then reinserting it and trying to reboot the phone. Another method is to take out the SD card, and attempt to start the phone that way.

I'm trying to determine the correct firmware for my phone?

I just got a Galaxy S4. I foolishly rooted it and began removing what I thought were unnecessary apps which screwed the phone up to the point it was stuck booting all the time with the T-Mobile logo up. I read that if I can get into download mode I can install the original firmware. I installed ODIN on my computer but I don't know which firmware to get. I can't power the phone on anymore.

I have a Galaxy Y and it is boot looping, I want to get the exact FW for it, how can I check for the version installed?

You cannot check the firmware version on a device that cannot boot up, but you can obtain up-to-date official firmware from http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ by entering your model name. If you are not sure what your model number is, remove the cover and the battery to locate it on the back of the phone.
