Root [Verizon] Screen Freeze after first reboot


So had enough problems with my first gs3 that when I got a replacement I didn't root it for custom roms for 4 months. So now I got the itch back to do it. So I rooted using the Casual root and choosing twrp recovery system. Everything worked fine supersu shows up and I am able to reboot into recovery. I tried the following roms
CM 10.2
OSE Rom 4.3
and Gummy's nightly 4.4.1

All three boot in the first time and i get gapps started no problem.
Everytime i then shut off to reboot I get stuck in boot animation even leaving it for 15 minutes.

I then tried reflashing the boot and unlock zip from this rooting procedure thinking it was a boot issue [GUIDE] Root for Jelly Bean 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 OTA ***UPDATED 5/29*** - xda-developers

That didn't work. Luckily made a backup of my original rooted stock rom I go back to each time and the boot works fine.

Any suggestions anything I am missing i really would love to run some custom goodness on my phone

Are you checking the md5 of the downloads vs. what is posted on the download site to make sure the file is clean?
I'm not sure what other advice to offer to you honestly. :eek:

When you are on your stock, rooted rom, does your phone reboot fine?

Yes once stock rooted rom is loaded boit returns to normal thought cm10 from the site would be md5 but it always said unchecked when flashing in recovery
