Root [Virgin Mobile] Infinity Loop


Dec 24, 2013
Alrighty so after many headaches and crash courses I have come to this point.. The Infinity Loop..

After installing TWRP, I created a backup of my Boot.. (No I did not have a backup to begin with)

extracted Stock VM.RAR to SD in TWRP backup folder, and ran TWRP recovery.. WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAME...

Samsung logo..
Virgin Mobile Splash screen...
Samsung logo again flashy flashy blue behind it.. Blue flashy indicator light on top...

Then nothing.. It just stay there, doesn't go past.

All things considered this situation is a vast improvement from the one I was in just 34 hours ago..

If anyone could kindly inform me how or what to do to get beyond the Infinity Loop it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
