    First I have always had usb issues,I bought this second hand and it worked fine before rooting, it charges fine, but no computer in my house, no cords and no software has helped me read this phone via computer.
    Secondly, I rooted with Framaroot, it was working fine, I deleted some bloat and froze a few apps that were seemingly worthless (kinda funny in retrospect) and now the phone boots up fine, but freezes at lockscreen and then just restarts, boots again, goes to lockscreen over and over until I battery pull. I can still get into dl mode (kinda worthless seeing as how I cannot use usb) I can get into recovery mode just fine, but don't know where to go from here as in, I have been looking everywhere for a solution but cannot find one for this situ anywhere. Any help would be awesome, thanks if advance. I have been trying to use recovery to flash a stock rom but every time get what looks like the installation I get my poor little andro on his back with the red triangle above him.

    Mercadescage, I took the liberty of moving your issue to the Epic 4G Touch "All Things Root" Forum, so that more experienced eyes can see the problem and help you with it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask :)

    EDIT: In reference to your issue, can we safely assume that you didn't make a nandroid backup in recovery before removing system apps and files? That would have saved you a tremendous amount of heartache...

    If you DO have a nandroid backup, just restore the backup and all will be well. Then we can take it one app at a time.

    I tried several times and cwm didn't take, I did have a few back ups, for some reason they did not take :( Oh yes this has been a few weeks without a phone now so its definitely frustrating

    are you familiar with flashing roms?

    next step would be flashing a stock rom if you wanted to stay stock which would get you back going again.
