    do you have any kind of recovery?? CWM ?? did you backup before flashing rom?? you have to flash TWRP with ODIN, u have to download ODIN and then you follow steps. i know how you feel i got hard brick from with Beats installer thing but i follow steps that were posted ^^ and i was good to go..

    i take it you ignored my warning about doing a recovery first before messing with your boot animations...... if you were indeed reading our thread about boot animations. if so wow all i can say is try android commander and see if it detects your phone so you can manually push back files you need. Im really sorry for your inconvenience but thats why we always suggest installing some sort of recovery and making a backup.

    I went to a metro store and they gave me a new phone, no questions asked. Without even looking at the old phone lol. Thank God.

    Yep, but it's still surprising that they didn't even bother to look at the phone. It could have been working perfectly and they wouldn't have known.

    Read, Read, Read and find out whats compatible with your phone and also if you plan on experimenting with your phone, it's always pays to have a backup plan. Oh did i mention READ? :D

    Haha quite true, I took instructions from the note 2, which i figured the file system would be the same and well it did work, it just never went past the boot image i added. It wasn't a lack of reading, just a mistake really. I was fully aware of what i was doing, reading wouldn't have prevented much but that is excellent advice in general :)

    So lucky man, my corporate stores are full of sh8t. Even though they knows that the phone is not working they will freaking take two hours to just show off and then even though they have the goddamn phone in stock they will bullsh8t you. And they will order another sh0t that takes almost a month to come. So that was very lucky for you and I am glad your not in my area.
