    When I try to reboot into recovery with TWRP it freezes and says this app has closed or w/e and just closes any ideas? Even when I try with ROM Manager it says ROM Manager is not responding , would you like to close it?

    If you're using twrp, which I recommend, use the "install" button. Then go to where you have the rom zip located. Also twrp will cancel out rom mgr. So you have to decide which one to use

    NO don't wipe all. only the dalvik & cache after you flash the rom. if you use wipe all it erases the rom you just flashed in. so now you have to reflash the rom.
    but before you reflash it, which rom did you flash?

    Stock I just rooted it as I just got the phone today. Even when I only hit wipe dalvik & cache still nothing happens .. it takes me to recovery and these are the options it gives me

    Reboot System now
    Apple update from external storage
    wipe data factory reset
    wipe cache parition
    apple update from cache

    ok. I'm assuming you didn't make a backup of your stock rom. this is still salvageable. do you have an sd card reader you can use to dl a rom from your pc

    its because you never flashed recovery. you cant flash a rom without having custom recovery
