Exclamation [Q] Stuck at Google log, can't access recovery

After flashing CM 11, I haven't been able to get past the phone set up (instantly crashes). After downloading a CM 10.1 ROM on to the phone and wiping the phone, I also deleted the ROM. Then the phone restarted itself and now I'm just stuck at the Google logo, and cannot access recovery. I remember having a similar issue on the Galaxy S, but don't remember the solution.

Trying to turn the phone off by holding the power button down for ten seconds just restarts the phone in the same state.

Any ideas?

Try to turn it off completely, start the phone in fastboot (bootloader) mode, and then flash the factory image

Holding down the power button for 10 seconds just restarts the phone. Is the battery removable?

That worked, thanks!

You just saved me a lot of time waiting for the battery to die

Just out of curiosity, does flashing the stock ROM keep root and CWM or do I have to install these again?

Is it a flashable zip or are you flashing a factory image?

If your flashing the factory image and you're using the flashall.bat yes you will have to reflash root and a recovery
A little thanks goes along ways

It was a factory image. Is there a need for a custom recovery or is the default fine?
