Download a new ROM from some other device or computer and transfer it manually then flash it on top. If you still have an custom recovery you're fine but if not figure out a way to root

Go to this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2726868
And follow instructions for downgrading to mk2.
Then root again with saferoot, install safestrap and if you wish upgrade back to nc5.

Step 1 is just telling you what files to download. Don't try to jump ahead.
If you follow the instructions exactly as he had them you won't have any problems.
Also afh has had problems for the past day or two.
Just keep refreshing. I want able to download a rom I was testing last night until almost lunch time today

Probably be best to take that question to the saferoot thread.
I only had to use it once before.

Try using "adb kill-server" before running the Saferoot install.bat. If that doesn't work, post a question in the Saferoot thread with the full error messages that you're seeing.
