Default Help with T769 Tmobile Recovery & Custom ROM on 4.0.4

Hey guys I'm trying to install the Themed ROM for P769 Locked bootloader. (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2468880) I have the phone rooted from awhile back, i cant recall what i used to root it, the phone is still on 4.0.4, I am trying to put a recovery on it to install this ROM, but I dont see any recoveries for 4.0.4, I've seen a few different ones for JB but I'm not sure if its compatible.

This is the recovery it said to install (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2095825) but the issue is that the link to the recovery was taken down, so I'm not sure what recovery I can install.

TLDR: I got a rooted T769 on 4.0.4 and i would like to install the themed ROM for T769 with Locked BL.

I'm guessing you mean that you have a P769 T-Mobile version.
Here is a link to the L9 Recovery Installer - https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8tegpmiyh...ller_1.5.0.apk
Since your already rooted, just make sure that you download and install BusyBox by stericson from the playstore, before installing the L9 recovery installer. It needs BusyBox installed on your device for it to work properly.

Download the Kumakan themed ROM to your external sdcard.

Open the BusyBox app and click on and select the version of BusyBox to install to the device and select version 1.21.0 to install.

Then install the L9 recovery installer app. Open the app and select "Install recovery" then select "jb/ics stable version", then grant it root rights through SuperSU when asked for permission.
Once it says recovery is installed, select power down/reboot the device. After the phone starts to boot up you'll see your front keys blinking this means you have recovery success and to enter into recovery immediately press and hold volume(-) down button while lights are still blinking... You are now in recovery mode. I would highly recommend that you immediately preform a nandroid backup of your L9 right now before doing anything else. Select backup and restore, choose backup and choose backup to external sdcard.
Once the nandroid backup is done then you are free to flash the Kumakan themed ROM that you want to install. Just follow the directions from the ROM thread to install the ROM.

I follow all of the above steps to a tee. The recovery installs fine but when I try to reboot back into my rom all I can get is the white screen that says " encrypting" and " reset phone"... I'm on software version, P76920h.... any help would be appreciated.
