    I rooted my phone last night using the kingo android root and it worked but i tried to do some google searches afterward and it would just close. so i figured i would restart my phone so i turned it off and turned it back on but what happened was that the glowing samsung logo thing at the beginning of the boot kept going and hasn't went to the home screen yet. i downloaded Odin3 like i've seen other people use in this problem but i'm afraid to mess with it more so can anyone help me? I'll try to provide as much info as i can but i'm kind of a noob at phones

    It probably wasn't Kingo (I've used it a few dozen times, and it's probably been used a million times). It's probably either something you did after you were rooted (you can destroy the hardware in the phone if you know what you;re doing, and can obtain root) or the phone just chose that time to experience a hardware failure. (I had an S3 working perfectly for months, rooted it and, within half an hour the motherboard decided to die.)

    Under warranty? Boot into recovery (Volume up, Home, Power, until you see the tiny blue lettering in the upper right corner). Factory reset. Bring into the carrier and play dumb. "I was just looking something up on Google and Google kept closing. I turned the phone off, turn it on and ... well, this is all that happens, over and over."

    If they can, they'll reflash the phone (it depends on the carrier and how they have their shops set up).

    Not under warranty? I don't have a Rush so I don't know the exact procedure for reflashing it, but if someone has the files somewhere you can download them, downloading the files will be the most difficult part of the whole process. (Unless you consider dying of boredom watching a computer screen do almost nothing difficult.)

    It's from boost, i've had the phone for 2 years now i think so i don't think it's still under warranty I've tried the recovery but nothing happens i tried using Odin3 with the CVM file thing. It seemed to work but im still in a boot loop :(

    You should check out the all things root forum for the rush. I did the same thing and managed to fix it using Odin and CWM. I'll try to find the link for you. All is not lost
