Maybe I was wrong because I got in touch with xdadevelopers and they are of the opinion that the 'wipe cache partition' command was left out of the new Firmware.
That makes sense when you see the Android robot fall over with an exclamation mark and the words 'no command'.
Time will tell.

I know the scenario you are facing but it seems that ALL S4 phones show the same - even mine!
When you go into Recovery mode you see the Android robot lying down and the words 'bad command'; but I still went ahead and tried 'wipe cache partition'. It only took a second for the screen to refresh and I am now thinking that it was successful because we are only talking about a few hundred kilobyte of data, not megabytes. The S4 processor would be able to remove that amount in a split second.

I remembered you that you were the one who wrote bad about my age and all and own wrote immature comments. Also your comments were deleted due to inappropriate content in it. please leave the page as nobody wants you here. anonymous you don't even have a name here.

I HAVEN'T GOT ANY UPDATE. stop bashing on others and make a gsmarena account before commenting bad on somebody.

I always remember my comments.
