Hi I got a solution to endless bootloops (at least working for me ) every time I flash new ROM I got stuck with bootloops so I experimented little bit and this solution seems to be working ...

I am using CM10 with Semaphore JB

You will need fixrecovery.tar and Odin (I used v1.83) you can download them in attachments.

For those who don't have flashable kernel on Internal SDCard can skip step 5 and second half of step 3.
1. So first of all you have to remove SIM and SDCard.
2. Flash fixrecovery.tar with Odin and uncheck Auto Reboot
3. Get into recovery and wipe only cache and flash kernel you want
4. Flash normal kernel with Odin and again uncheck Auto Reboot
5. Get into recovery and again flash kernel of your choice
6. Now you should be ready to switch your phone on

Maybe this excessive flashing of kernel is not necessary but I did it this way

Hello there,

Thanks for the guide. This hasn't worked for me?

I was upgrading versions of aways ROM (from ICS to Jellybean) and once I had flashed the ROM and GAPPS the phone rebooted. The link for the GAPPS was broken on the ROM website but it found me a replacement that I used. The phone does boot but FC on setup and no longer boots into recovery and is stuck in bootloop.

I thought this would fix the issue as I could still enter download mode but I still have the same problem? Phone won't boot into recovery and just loops...

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance : )

I do not know exactly what causes it bootloop, Before bootloop I edit files and install Tweaks build.prop through the application My pimp and when I restart the device bootloop ensued, do you think this is file damage build.prop or else. So that my device bootloop
