Just to give an update, i was able to load up ART version of the ROM up and everything is well with the ROM. Man this thing flies so far. Will report on battery life when I get through a few cycles. All is well right now. Thanks for everyone who gave my any input on this matter and as im writing this post, I reboot my phone after I get everything loaded up annnnnnnnnnd the bootloops start right back up...smh. I will try to load the ElementalX kernel up and see if that helps anything.
