then put your device i to recovery: up/down volume plus power when device is off
once in recovery type thus from your computer.
fastboot flash boot boot.img
you will need to extract the image from the glitched-kernel.zip

no this will not wipe your data. it is the manual way of flashing a kernel.
hope that helps.

Not using cleanmaster to delete your backups was a lesson you learned the hard way, but it is not unrecoverable and you can chalk it up as a learning experience.


Let us know how it worked out, everything will be fine as long as you take your time and relax. This is something that happens to most people sooner or later and is a great confidence builder (once you work through it).

I did what you guys said and it work flawlessly. Thank you so much! I was worried I permanently bricked my device. I though about buying an OTG cable, but now I think I'm buying it for sure. I'll try to store some backups on it too.
