Bootloop? Please help this soooper noober!
Sorry for my total noobness. I've just recently started this whole root awesomeness and I've hit a snag...... I'm sure there are many threads about my problem but I can't find one. I had CM 10.2 on my AT&T galaxy s3 and things were smooth and stable. Decided to try the "Collective" 4.3 ROM and SixShooter kernel. I put the zips in the phone (used the same gapps zip that was in there because I believe the Collective ROM is based off of the CM 10 ROM). Did a backup, then wiped chache, dalvick cache, system, and data (using TWRP recovery). Then did a multiple install of all three files in one action because TWRP lets you. so why not do it?
Rebooted, and I get the samsung logo, then sixshooter, then blank screen, vibration, pause, another vibration, then it starts all over. I can go into odin mode, or pull the battery to get it to stop.
Tried using odin to flash the .tar file, but it says PASS! and then the phone just automatically starts the loop again.
Was installing all 3 files (ROM, KERNEL, and Gapps zip files) at the same time a bad move?
I tried going back into recovery and it gives me the CWM recovery. Do I have TWRP AND CWM at the same time? Wierd. Tried wiping cache, and dalvik cache again and then rebooting, it still loops.
I'm at a a loss. I've watched a ton of videos and they all pretty much just say to find the right .tar and use odin to get back to stock. Like I said I've tried this and it just starts the loop again. Please help!! (I don't know a thing about ADB/terminal commands so if thats the fix I'll need my hand held) If theres a link to a thread that tells me how to get out of this I'd sure appreciate it. I greatly appreciate anyone who can take the time to explain to me what to do......
