Default Possibly Bricked Device - Stuck in Kernel Crash

I was reading similar stories in previous posts but I can't find any that directly relate to me. If I boot into the phone normally, I get to a screen that says "DemiGod Crash Handler: Kernel Crash!". It gives me three options, Dload Mode, Reboot and Fastboot. I can use Fastboot to get into TWRP recovery. The screen prior to this is just the Google logo with a lock at the bottom of the screen.

I'm pretty new at unlocking phones, I've only done it once with my Galaxy S2. I don't know how to fix it. I feel like I'm better off since I can access "Dload Mode" as well as TWRP just fine. I don't know what to do after this though. Everything is backed up already since I replaced this phone only a few days ago due to a large crack on the screen. A complete reset is doable. I can provide any information you need.

Related to previous posts, this seems to have been caused by using FreeGee in an attempt to unlock the phone.

Get your device into Fastboot mod and flash the stable kernel and flash the stable ROM on your device in the recovery on your bootloader unlocked device.

Will any kernel for the device work, or does it have to be the stock kernel?

Any kernel will work but the condition is it should have to be designed only for your device and have to be a stable one.

If you have a nice stable ROM for your device with it's own kernel and you are pretty sure that they are stable then use them.

This cases only applies for bootloader unlocked devices.

If you are not sure about any other kernels then you can also use the stock one but the ROM should be then used of a stock android ROM or the ROMs those are supported by the stock kernel.

I just went through TWRP and apparently it does not recognize that I have an external SD card, only the internal storage. This means I can't get the ROM on there then right? Not sure what to do now...

If it's any consolation I have a version of CWM on the internal SD, maybe there's a chance I can install that and it will recognize the SD card?

Remove
external SD card
battery
once
and then again insert them after few minutes.

Make sure you have mounted the ext SD card in the device.
Go to Recovery > Mount > check ext sd card

Make sure your ext SD is in working condition. Test in on any other device.

Make sure you have installed recovery in clean way or just reinstall or try any other recovery.

Some times it is also a bug of a kernel so make sure you are using a right one.

If all of the above are done right way...and still you are getting problem then go to Customer Care and if you give up then relock the bootloader and comeback into stock Android.

I actually did a bit of research and used LGNPST to reflash the stock rom and it worked! I'm so glad I was able to fix it!

If anyone else is having this trouble, I definitely recommend looking at user autoprime's guide in the Android Development section.

Thank you for your help, much appreciated!
