Hey all, in need of a little assistance. I was running the tri-force 5.3 rom. loved it, but saw that 5.4 came out. I tried downloading it and got stuck at a screen where it said it had failed. i then tried to follow the steps by reflashing the stock rom and now i am stuck at the spash screen with the red and yellow words at the top. or it pops up saying System software not authorized by samsung has been found on your phone. with yellow triangle in the middle. Anyone know what i need to get past this screen? I believe i was running an MDL prior to this if it helps. I also can still get into the download screen (power + vol down)

We need to know what firmware you were on before you installed the custom rom. If you were on MF9 or older you can download the MF9 tar file and odin it to your phone. If you were on MJA or MK2, then you need to download the MK2 tar file and odin that.

Alright I figured it out. All i was doing wrong was not installing the firmware in odin. got my phone back up and running. Now my problem is installing triforce 5.4. loved the rom, but everytime i flash it, it gets stuck at the splash screen. any suggestions?
