Problem is I made it work the first few times around. There was recovery and all was good for the first 3 times ( I had to redo the whole process due to the Rock1zk rom I tried to install kept kicking me into bootloop or boot animation hang) and now I can't get it to work anymore. It keeps having the red LED light and no recovery.

There must be something I did right the first few times or something i did wrong after....
