Hey,

I installed TWRP as I have done many times before using the links from here and Odin, now all that happens is TeamWin flashes up every few seconds if I get into recovery, if I do adb reboot download, it just goes to the samsung splash screen and sits there forever. All I have access to is adb recovery, so I can open a adb shell, but from there I can do nothing.

I feel it is bricked, unless anyone knows what I can do from adb, any help would be greatly appreciated. It's not so much the issue twrp I need help with, I assume I did something wrong and that's caused the brick, but more the possible things I can do to fix.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help

So did you backup the original boot partition? If not, maybe just use odin and flash your rom back. The term 'bricked' means the device is completely unresponsive, that's not your case. It's not 'bricked'.

I 'think' I've sorted it, turning the device of in this state just don't seem to do anything or is too quick not sure.

If I get it into 'recovery' I can then do adb reboot and as soon as I hit enter hold both volume buttons and it makes it into download.

Currently reflashing the stock rom so thank you :)
