I was attempting to install a ROM through CWM 188.8.131.52 recovery and it failed during the installation. More like crashed as I did not get an error message or have the robot fall over. After this happened my galaxy s3 started bootlooping. During the bootloop I could still see the cyanogen mod icon present which I thought was strange as I had done a full wipe/factory reset/system format before attempting to install the other ROM. I have been flashing ROM's for over a year but am still learning. Anyway I got back into CWM recovery and attempted to wipe user data/factory reset again to make sure I had a clean install before making a 2nd attempt and I was able to wipe both caches no problem but when I attempt to do factory reset it crashes. I thought maybe it was the recovery so I flashed TWRP through ODIN and tried to factory reset and it also crashes.
I am still able to access download mode and get into custom recoveries but I am not sure what to do now. I have attempted to flash back to CM 11 and Task 650 4.4 but I receive status 7 errors. I have not been able to locate stock restore tar files for 4.3 as all I have read is that 4.3 was an OTA and there is no tar file for it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
