Default [Q]My phone will not boot, I keeps loop booting and won't get past the initial screen

Ok, I went to take a picture and it freaked the **** out. Now I rooted my phone when I got it, I have done nothing else other then Xposed modules and since it start acting up I've literally done nothing else. I only get the screen that says custom and then blah nothing else. I swapped battery (got another battery from samsung directly) and I have no idea wtf to do. Don't recommened ****ing flashing **** or whatever because I have everything stock. This should not happened. I wiped dalvik cache and cache and it was within recovery but my phone can't boot, I removed SD card, sim card and sometimes it'll boot be on for a couple minutes and bam same issue.... WHAT THE FLYING **** CAN I DO? I need this phone ASAP.... I'm this close to just tossing it over the edge and getting a new one.... it's a flying piece of **** and **** samsung!

You might have to start from scratch and determine if it's a hardware issue. Do you know what firmware you're on? Also back everything up because if you start from scratch, we'll that's the what you'll have.

Thanks, I managed to get it on again, made some calls uninstall some apps, but then it ****ing freaked out again. I have the firmware that was on when it was released. I got the first batch of 32gb's S4's haven't changed the firmware since... to prevent this type of ****. UGH! So after a phone call my phone just bleeped again and ****ed up. So I don't understand anything anymore.

Well you might have to to see if it's a hardware issue. I would suggest flashing the firmware you're currently on through Odin

How am I supposed to do that if the phone just won't be recognized by anything? it's ****ing dead now. It shows me the Samsung Custom lock and logo and then nothing. I press the power button and nothing, I have to remove the batter and put it back in to see that screen.

Ok now it randomly is charging and now I can turn it on again, no problem, after I forcefully press the power button and some other random things... could I have an issue wiht my power button staying pressed? why would it do that? how can I fix this? I'm willing to open it up. I'm currently doing a backup in titanium backup and so far it seems ok. Recieved a phone call, phone is charging and everything is ok. how do I boot it into safe mode?

Thanks, I believe the cause was a stuck power button.
