Same problem - Slightly different solution
I put my Admire into a boot loop while attempting to root. Followed the hard reset instructions, but instead of choosing Wipe data/factory reset, I simply chose the Reboot option. Brought me back into the system without losing data. May or may not save time for some. Hope it helps.
1) Pulled battery (*This may or may not have been what actually fixed the issue)
2) Followed Hard reset instructions

all together till samsung logo comes up
3) Chose the Reboot option instead of Wipe Data option
4) Loaded back into the system to try it all over.
Thank you Shinyside, Gelige, and Tokenpoke, for the guidance, confirmation, instruction, etc. etc. Very much appreciated!
I am still a noob that is taking risks for the sake of learning
. I am not saying this is a correct solution. I am only contributing the path I chose to get out of my mess. There are much more qualified members, such as the previously thanked, that will tell you it is your own risk with no one but yourself to blame if you brick your phone.
(Even though you are probably aware of the risk if you are reading this. ...)
