No problem... I spent twice the time trying to get my phone back up and running... I was about to run my phone over with the car and get a new one (my phone is insured) LOL & if you would like a really good 4.3 Custom Rom find and try out Wicked Rom V.10... I installed it after I fixed my phone and it is awesome!!!

Well, this all started when i tried to root my phone. I followed to directions here but when i flashed the zip and rebooted my phone i got "kernel is not seandroid enforcing. set warranty bit kernel." So at this point i am back to stock 4.3 and not rooted. At this point im just glad to be back up...lol

Mine says that (kernel is not seandroid enforcing. set warranty bit kernel) when it is booting up, but it hasn't effected it negatively. To be honest I don't even know what that means yet.... As long as the phone turns on and works.... lol

I used CF-Auto-root and it worked flawlessly...

Mine would never come to life. Would go to a black screen and the little blue light would pulse, but all i would get was a black screen. hmmmm...i probably did something wrong.

Once you are back to stock 4.3 and not rooted all you need to do to root
the phone is to download and Odin flash cf-autoroot.
Here is the direct download link for cf-autoroot in case you want to root your phone:
http://download.chainfire.eu/328/CF-...etrieve_file=1

Unzip cf-autoroot into an empty folder on your computer's desktop, use
Odin which is also included in the zipfile to flash cf-autoroot in pda slot.

Once you are rooted you will need to flash a custom recovery like cwm or twrp.

Good luck!
