I've owned 3 Samsung devices and never had an issue. I downloaded the cf auto root and tried flashing it as instructed through Odin 3. I had already installed twrp before all this. It wasn't rooting properly and now it won't boot and isn't recognized in Odin anymore and I can't get into twrp. Please help!

dont you still have TWRP installed?
Can you get in TWRP?

Try to hold power button until it turns off. Then turn it back on

PS: OFF TOPIC:
You can root using TWRP, I was able to root mine. I think thats in the advanced settings option

How did you install TWRP before you obtained root?

Used the gooim app. I actually got it booted now. Left in the charger for a while and tried Odin avian and it surprisingly recognized it. And oddly enough... Now I'm rooted. But now I wanna know how to go back completely stock and wipe the flash count. Any advice?

You can not remove the warranty bit 1 count.

I think you can get them if you install stock recovery.

Check out the CF-AUTO Root posts http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2490805 Rooting Instructions

It has been rumored that Samsung will not warrant the device if it is bricked but if the power button breaks they would most likely repair it.
