Im stuck in a boot loop. please help me
So I was planning never to root or mess with my S4, but I did.
I found this torrent and have only used that. here is a link to that torrent; thepiratebay. se/torrent/10104919/
It came with Odin 3.07 and the stock rom for metropcs but at 4.3 this other thing called UVUAMDL, ODIN3 v1.85, openrecovery-twrp-18.104.22.168-jflteMetroPCS.tar file, and also three roms called kitkat 4.4 v5, v7 and v8.
So I went ahead and used odin to install openrecovery, essentially the twrp. Afterwards my phone was fine and i used root checker from the app store to see that I indeed have root access. I then installed goo manager and even bought the rom toolbox pro. The goo manager specifically pist me of because every time I searched for roms it showed nothing, an empty list.
I then got a popup i believe from goo mangager telling me i didn't have a running script? so i installed that or I believe I installed that. That didn't help my problem and was still unable to use any roms.
At this point I used the roms that came with the torrent and that ruined my phone. The first rom was called kitkat 4.4 v5. After "flashing" it thru twrp recovery my phone would reset itself everytime the screen went black. It would boot, I could use my phone mildy normally but everytime the screen went black and I pressed the power button it would reset.
So I had two choices, try to take back all the modifications I had done or keep going. I chose to keep going and proceeded to flash the kitkat 4.4 v7 rom that came with the torrent and that finally bricked my phone.
I've been trying to install the stock rom 4.3 that came with my torrent and that doesn't work. I thought it worked but every time it gets to the metropcs boot animation it just stops there. I don't know what to do now.
