FIXED: here is my solution
For anyone else who may come across this thread and might have the same problem of their phone not booting up, this is what I did:
First I went into recovery and wiped everything.
Then, I reflashed the same rom over and over, but was not successful in making the phone boot up all the way.
I was planning on going with RUU, once i found one that would work with my phone model, but before I did that, @JJeamy
suggested I try to flash a different ROM(ViperS) than the one I was flashing before, and so I tried that, and it worked!
I am S-ON, so I followed step 4B on this thread(http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1631861
) to flash the ROM (Thanks to Asskicker for the awesome guide). It says so in the guide as well, but remember to enable smartflash before flashing the ROM.
So basically, if your phone is not booting up, wipe everything off your phone, then flash a new ROM(using the guide), and you should be good to go!
And lastly, a huge thank you to everyone who replied and helped me, I would give all you awesome people a hug if I could. I learned a lot too, and am more aware now of how everything works. THANKS GUYS!
