So I rebooted into TWRP recovery, backed up, factory reset thrice, and went to flash it. As it was flashing, the installer popped up, and i followed the directions. I chose the middle one (medium amount of bloat) because they said that it was recommended, and I wasn't exactly sure what the three options were.
Anyways, after waiting for awhile on the loading bar, it eventually rebooted, and I assumed it was working (i hadn't been staring at my phone for the 5 minutes, so im not sure if anything popped up on the screen)
So when it started to reboot, it flashed by with the Galaxy SIII screen with Cid underneath it (i had been running cm10 before this) which i thought was a bit weird, but I figured i would let it go and see what happened
So then the screen turned completely black and just sat there. I waited for a good 10 minutes, and with nothing happening I decided to pull the battery and restore back to cm.
Now I decided that I might as well try again with CWM, to see if the issue was with TWRP.
I went through the same rom installation process and the same exact thing happened.
As it is, I'm going to keep using Cm until i can figure this out.
żAny suggestions? Thanks in advance.
