On reboot it was on the samsung screen for atleast 20/30 minutes before I took out the battery and put it back in, and now I have it on next to me. It is still on the samsung screen. Any ideas? I have a sch I545. Thanks in advance. I do have insurance and I think I might have to get my phone replaced due to this, which would suck but if that is what this comes down to I have to.
There should be no need to get your phone replaced; users doing that is a large part of the reason why bootloaders are locked.
Follow directions here to enter ODIN/Download mode: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2290771
Download ODIN and the either the Full-Wipe or No-Wipe image here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2578209
(If the no-wipe doesn't work, you'll need the full-wipe, so it may be easier to simply start with that one.)
Follow the directions in the thread to flash the .tar.md5 and your phone should be fully restored to normal working condition.
