Try to get in to Odin mode. If you can flash the Stock Image and go from there.
PM me for assistance and files for Unrooting / Rooting your Galaxy S3 and any support needs on your S4.

Hi I have the exact same pb, I flashed several times my S4 (I was on RLS4 before) following the instructions, no way to get out from the endless reboot loop.

There is a suggestion using ODIN, I am not very familiar on how to do that, any help?

Thanks

before you go through all the trouble of ODIN, which seems to be everyones answer now a days, it is a kernel issue, flash a verizon loki kernel. It should boot.

First, if you have a back up, restore just the system partition (this will also format your current /system) Then do a factory reset and reboot. Now I if that doesn't work, Odin is your best bet.

FOR anyone installing Hyperdrive, the most probable cause of boot loop in the Walkman Music App. Don't choose it in Aroma!!!
If you already have, the only way to fix the boot loop is to ODIN back to stock, as Dark Menace suggested.
He can PM you the stock image, which you will have to flash in ODIN to successfully boot up again.

Sent a few PM's to see if that helps. You can try the kernels first then go from there.
