Not soft or hard brick...half brick??? Help!
Hi all....not a noob here, but nowhere near a dev, and I'm perplexed beyond reason here......
My phone was being all glitchy so I did a complete hard reset, flashed stock MDL ROM, flashed upgrade to MF9 (didn't want to wait for OTA), flashed cf autoroot then philz touch recovery and everything and was running great.
Then I went to flash CM10.2 and afterwards and didn't get a reboot, but didn't want to deal with the unrooting issue so I flashed a different kernel first (which I think may have been the problem.) I pulled the battery and attempted to reboot from being off. All hell breaks loose. It won't load no matter how I attempt a boot, (recovery, from "off") so I decided it may be best just to start the process over.
Odin flash back to stock MF9 thinking no biggie, then when I go to boot things get weird. No bootloop, but it takes awhile then boots but no "main screen" I have the status bar on the top, then when I go to shut down I can see the shut down menu, but nothing else. Blank face.
So....I'm totally lost at this point. I've tried stock kernel, stock ROMs, reboots galore, and I have no idea what component of the ROM is missing. I have no clue how to fix it!!!! Can someone more informed than I PLEASE help???
UPDATE - tried flashing crawjr's stock rooted odex - no dice. Still reboots through yellow logo to "blank" homescreen; I can hear touch sounds when I mess with the screen...it's like the ROM is running I just can't see it?
crawjr's ROM fixed after booting into recovery and factory reset. This can be deleted.
