Hey Guys,
I'm a noob and I was fooling around with overclocking my SIII and installed the invisiblek v2 kernel on an aosp rom and I have tried even re-partitioning (as my friend recommended) and that hasn't worked, can anybody help me?

Additional Information:
Device: Verizon 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy SIII
Stock Android version: 4.0.4
Version with AOSP: 4.1.1
Kernel: Was stock, now Invisiblek V2
Color: White (If that makes a difference.)

#EDIT: Its now hanging on the second Samsung logo.

Just return to stock. That should fix the problem. Tho Idk about the repartitioning part. Every guide I've seen says not to tick that box.

if you checked repartition then its going to take a few extra steps to get it back! follow puremotives softbrick guide in the dev section.

After the whole day of trial and error I have got to the point where there is no os on the s3. The only thing I can boot into is download and CWM. The last thing I need to do is copy a rom onto the phone but adb says no device found and I cant do much with odin. Any ideas?
