I am sorry I missed this note....Linux was the answer...thank you for all your help last week
if your boot animations keeps playing, you are going to need to wipe data. which is done by pulling the battery, holding power and home button until the boot logo appears, then releasing power but continuing to hold home until a ! mark appears... then hit search and pick wipe data (or factory reset, same thing).. so you did successfully sbf with linux? if so then the data wipe will fix ya good as new =P
