To solve this problem, simply install a rom that is compatible with CWM 126.96.36.199 and reboot recovery or restore a CWM Backup you made with CWM 188.8.131.52.
This normally happens when one reverts from CWM 184.108.40.206 back to CWM 220.127.116.11.
Once you flash a rom with CWM 18.104.22.168, your phone uses the EXT4 File system, and when you go back CWM 22.214.171.124, CWM can not mount/read EXT4 partitions, only RFS partitions. Hope I helped
hhmm sometimes i just feel like cursing people out on here lol but i dont cause i dont want to get banned!!!! *totally unrelated note to this thread*
so back to the monster thread and go look for post #604 it on the second to last page, your problem has been solved already. do a bit of reading next time around, most of the question peole ask have already been solved.
also dont screw around with Odin lol in my opinion i think Odin should be used as the last resort, there are easier and less problematic ways to fix a bootlooped phone

I did my homework as you mentioned. However it still won't boot? Goes to the same screen and after a few minutes, more like 10 just shuts off.
I will keep searching for the answers. I still get the errors in CWM evertime Recovery starts up. Didn't do that before? Could it be the update from Metro messed with it?
Thanks again for helping out!
I have often gotten past the cache error in CWM several times by wiping the sh*t out of everything but SD card, then flashing the rom. After flashing the rom you want, reboot recovery. If the error is still there, reflash the same rom WITHOUT wiping anything, then reboot recovery again. Most of the time this fixes my problem, but its hard to say with the plethora of problems that people have on this phone, lol.
Edit: Do you know if your phone is capable of running the OC kernel? If so, you might wanna just upgrade to 126.96.36.199, most of the better roms are on that one anyways, and you have EXT4 support
I tried the stock rom 2.3.6 and still nothing. It seems it isn't getting past the boot screen and then vibrate like it used to...
I was thinking of just Odin and reinstalling CWM over again and see if that fixes it.
The phone is been fine for a most a year now. Always had good luck with ROMs being installed until just recently when the errors in CWM showed up and I tried to put on a new ROM and POOF! nothing but boot screen?
I did format the sdcard more than once now, tried a different one too...no such luck?
Maybe someone out there had the same issue and knows how to fix it? Thanks for your help.
