The "Custom" warning is irrelevant. If it boots, you're done.

As usual, if you care about the "Custom" warning, revert to factory stock.

(You can remove that warning using Triangle Away "Periodic system modified reset" or the Wanam security hacks.)

I hit volume key down to reboot and it just goes back to black screen with short vibrations. I'm scared to hit the volume up...

With the phone off hit Volume Down + Power once the download mode screen pops up you'd be hitting Volume Up to continue. Nothing to be scared of. At that point youd need to use Odin. Have you used Odin before?
