oops. hey you got a free "thanks" (I didn't mean to push that)
Anyway, if the boot animation is actually glitching and starting over then something is wrong.
Boot animations can take a long time to boot on a fresh install though. When it seems like it's taking to long one thing you can do to tell when it's been long enough is wait for one small little vibration after the boot animation. That's like the indicator that it's done and about to start. If you get it then it goes back to samsung, or don't get it and end up back at samsung, then try re-downloading and flashing again.
edit: also try just wiping and reflashing the one you got before downloading a new one that may work.
