Post [GUIDE] How to recover your device from bootloop.

Hi Guys, i know you may have gotten loads of ways to recover from bootloop on internet but many people cant understand it. Some may have got into trouble due to not following the instructions whiles flashing custom roms or any other reaseon. That's why i created a noob friendly guide here.

1)Flash TWRP recovery.Link below(I hope you now all the basic stuff like Rooting flashing recovery etc.)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2561757

2)Download and extract ADB on your pc
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

3)Reboot into recovery.

4)Now in TWRP go to wipe

5)Select Format data.(this will erase all the data on your phone)Once its complete go back

6)Go to the advanced.

7)Click the ADB sideload option and swipe to start sideload

8)Now connect your phone to pc.

9)Go to the folder where you have extracted adb and open cmd there by holding shift and clicking right mouse button.
(Now you need to have a working custom rom in your pc. Copy it to the folder where u had extracted adb.)

10)Now type there
Quote:
adb sideload name of your rom.zip
11)this will insert the rom in your internal storage. Once its completed it will install automatically.

12)Once everything is done reboot your phone.Now your device will be out of bootloop

90% of the bootloop is due to messing up(without knowing what you are doing) of system files like kernel, build.prop, libs or some system apk just flash the rom.zip without wiping the data(without loosing data)
you will loose gapps. but that can be installed again by flashing gapps package but data is safe
