Default Stuck at Samsung logo, won't boot please help!

OK so I was running ROM manager for the first time....and I did "flash clockwork mod recovery" followed by "backup current ROM." What ensued was my phone immediately rebooting, getting stuck on the samsung logo screen.

So what's the deal? Can someone please tell me how to fix this!

You can flash the Factory EE4 found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1172182

That will fix about anything. And don't use ROM Manager, as it is not Samsung friendly.

Awesome thank you much! So it is a known issue that ROM manager messes up Samsungs?
I hope I can get it to flash, because I tried downloading ED2 from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1111486&page=2 but it came up with a MD5 hash error.

Correct, ROM Manager doesn't play nice with our phones.

You can DL any of the stock tar files and use Odin to flash them and be good to go! Try THIS ONE

Sorry, I was going to reply the other day to tell you how grateful I was because this totally fixed it, but for what ever reason I couldn't reply even after refreshing the page due to invalid token or something.

Anyways, THANK YOU!

I hate to go off topic, but I do have another question. Is there any way to reserve some of the SD card memory for use as RAM? Kind of the same way you can use a USB drive as extra ram on Windows.

Does anyone know the requirements a phone has to meet to use rom manager? I was sort of hoping the charge could use the highly praised app

Question Does this method works for any phone?

I have a T-Mobile Samsung Exhibit 4G. I did install the ROM Manager but I didn't do anything other than rooting it as there's not custom ROM for this phone yet.
It's stuck on the front Samsung Exhibit 4G logo and won't go any further. Please help me fix it. I got it as a gift and have no receipt so no repair from Samsung. Which file should I get to fix it?

You are in the wrong forum. This is for the Samsung Droid charge, not the exhibit 4g. Please don't try to flash anything from here as it will only make the situation worse.
