Default [Q] Weird Bootloop help

Hey guys.
So I flashed the Beanstalk 4.4.2 rom about a week ago and everything was fine until today when I rebooted my phone it got stuck in bootloop. I did not flash anything or deleted any system files before rebooting. The weird thing is that during the bootloop I noticed that the ambient light sensor worked (the brightness of the screen adjusted itself) and when I plug in my charger the notification light glows red. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that's supposed to happen in a normal bootloop. Anyway, I can't boot into recovery mode either for some reason. Right now, my phone is stuck in the boot animation and I can't even turn off the damn thing. Help please?

try this:
flash twrp or cwm recovery
clear fastboot cache (fastboot erase cache)
enter into recovery
wipe cache and dalvik cache

adb doesn't recognise device as well

Right I managed to boot into recovery and wipe the cache you mentioned and now it works. Thanks!

But do you know what might have caused this? The last thing I did before the bootloop was moving a few photos in my sd card into another folder.

it doesnt matter what you do in sd card...
just do cache and dalvik cache wipe in recovery and reboot it..
