Default Same here

I am having the same exact problem you are veeboom. It's not boot-looping because it actually lets me into the phone for about one minute; then it reboots. I have tried everything that you have tried, right along with you and result is nil. It won't stay on for more than a minute. The only difference is that I am just trying to get Roger's Clean Stock ROM working. It sounds like you have accomplished that and are trying to get a custom going. I have tried Odin flashing 3 times; once without the sd card. I am pretty sure SD card is not the issue. I have wiped this phone at least 5 times (everything except the the extSdCard (AKA sdcard1).

I am going to see if I can find some other posts on this problem and will let you know if I finally find a fix. Hope you will do the same.

Happy to report the end of the boot loop!

Although I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it was caused by an incompatible modem file I flashed over and over...

Thanks for everyone's help.

You should have started your own thread but can you give us a run down of what you did prior to having the boot loop?

Battery Low Things just got worse

I have have the phone for about two months. A week ago I rooted it with Samsung Note II tool box and everything was fine, until I found out that there were these "custom ROMs" available. So I flash one, but it was unstable. I flashed liquid smooth; same thing, then I tried a few ROMS that were a little more mature, but their were always things I could not live with (like no blue tooth or apps crashing). I also found out what a boot loop was all about. It sucked, but the forums help me get it fixed. Now I am tried of messing with all these custom ROMs and I just want my old reliable system back, with root. Currently I am trying to get Roger's CleanROM AT&T Special Edition 1.2 working again (with I believe I started with). I have been unable to remedy boot loops that happen about every minute. I have flashed, wiped (everything), unrooted, re-rooted, flashed with Odin, flashed core kernel via odin per instructions, called it bad names and threatened it; then said I was sorry. I have repeated all these things many times, including with and without the extSdCard. SD card does not seem to be the issue. I am still looking for more things to try. Just now it has started refusing to boot at all. I gets to the boot screen and gets stuck.

I am trying to find out more about how to use ADB to re-partition upon stock ROM flash. You know anything about that? I have been at this all day.

It sounds like you may have done the same thing I did which was flash an incompatible modem file. My suggestion would be for you to use Odin and flash back to the Rogers Stock ROM. It's easy and takes less than 10 minutes.

Basic instructions,
1. Download and unzip Odin
2. Put your phone in download mode (turn off your phone, and press the buttons together: vol down + home + power for a few seconds)
3. Run Odin then hit PDA button on the right side, then find and choose the firmware file you downloaded to be flashed.
4. Make sure your device is recognized in Odin3 (The ID: COM box near the top left part of the Odin program should go yellow once you connect your phone)
5. Make sure re-partition in NOT checked
6.Press Start to initiate flashing
7. Once finished your device should automatically reboot. You may need/want to do a factory reset which will wipe all your data and you would be back to the way your first got your phone. Enter into recovery mode by turning off your phone and next press the three buttons simultaneously: volume up + home + power. After getting into recovery, select Wipe/Factory reset.
8. Reboot

You are now stock 100%



Here is a link to download Odin,
