    Help Tab 4 speaker is broken

    Happened a few days ago. Headphone jack still works. Running a tab 4 rooted, with the last build of the Prism rom from xda. Also running a kernel that overclocks CPU speed to 1586.

    My battery was not lasting a day, so I replaced it. But now it will not boot up. I tried to reinstall the op but that little green robot has been starring at me since yesterday afternoon and it still has not finished. Is there a way I can download and install the op through my computer?
