Exclamation Boot Loop

I have a MetroPCS Galaxy Indulge..
I woke up to see my phone rebooting over and over again..
Last night I did wipe it clean to factory settings..
I've tried taking out the battery and sim card a few times, holding the power button for a while and then putting it back in.. and tryed to turn it back on again.. but that didn't work.. tried that a few times actually..
my phone is rooted.. and umm... i don't know what else to do..
lil help please..

I found the above quote here http://androidforums.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=4632190

Since that didn't work.. -supernoob12- has been helping me fix it on the low.. we've been talking through emails..

basically he's guiding me on doing the procedure noted here
How to get the Samsung Galaxy Indulge (R910 and R915) Back to Stock - TheUnlockrTheUnlockr

but that hasn't worked..

a whole day without my cell phone and I feel so different.. in need of texting..

if anybody out there has any ideas.. please.. by all means.. Im not giving up on this phone just yet..

What happened while trying to Odin flash back to stock. Did the operation fail? Did it succeed and not fix anything?

Use the indulge files. I took a peak at it and it is using a video tutorial for fixing the epic to show the process. It's the same process for all samsung phones, but different files for each device.

tried it... no go.. someone told me on facebook that something similar had happened to her and it was because the flash was messed up.. I showed her a video of my phone going through the boot loop.. too bad she has a different phone.. she couldn't tell me where to get the files to fix flash..

I was able to fix the issue thanks to SUPERNOOB12.
He forwarded me the correct files and told me how to use it..
I placed the files in a single RAR and uploaded it to 4shared for everyone to use..
just extract and read the instructions..
