    While going through a day of flashing Lollipop ROM's I was about to try the Biftor 4.4.4 ROM for the i9505 INTL and (stupidly) used a CWM wiping script that I used for my S2 (originally came with Biftor ROM S2 i9100) .

    During the wipe process it hung. After an hour I had to pull the battery and try flashing a ROM. I tried to flash a couple of ROMs using TWRP and also Philz CWM, they install just fine but after the reboot to system it always stops just before boot animation with two vibrations and keeps looping. I even tried to restore from a CWM backup but the same thing. Pic of error message in standard recover attached.

    My phone was purchased from T-Mobile in the UK and is the old bootloader without KNOX and I would like to keep it that way. Will flashing an official UK EE stock 4.2.2 firmware without KNOX fix this?
