    Hello, I think I have a potentially bad problem. I am currently rooted with Jedix19 ROM. I opened "ROM Manager" since I wanted to backup my ROM, and possibly flash a new one. I changed the settings so the backup went to my Ext SD card, and ran it. The phone eventually re-booted with TWRP running, and is stuck there. This is what it says on the screen:

    Top of screen:

    Team Win Recovery Project v2.5.0.1
    Simulating Actions
    11:40PM Battery 79%
    Running OpenRecoveryScript

    Then at the bottom of screen:

    Updating partition details...
    Running boot script...

    Finished running boot script
    Simulating actions...

    Below that there is a status bar spinning,
    a "home" button on the left, and a return button on the right.

    Phone has been stuck this way since Monday morning. I pulled the battery and tried to boot in flash recovery mode (power,volume down, and home button) the android logo came up and it said "downloading" and never did anything. I waited over an hour, pulled battery, rebooted and TWRP came up with the same stuff posted above. Suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you boot directly into recovery? (home/volume up/power)?
    Clear the cache and dalvik cache and reboot?
    Do you have any nandroid backups to flash just in case?

    I don't know if anyone else would have another idea, but personally, I would flash back to stock (unroot) via ODIN, then reroot.
    But that's just me.....sometimes I'm impatient :rolleyes:

    Now, perhaps someone else will jump in here with another solution :)

    If you Odin, you have to make sure you avoid the 4.3 (latest) version, since that'll lock your bootloader. :D
