    Followed sbensons directions to a T I think. Unlocked with no problems, ran install-superboot-windows.bat. It gave me downloading 'boot.img' ...OKAY then booting...OKAY Well now it does that constantly. It never did sucessfully reboot - had to do a battery pull after about 10 minutes. That was when the reboot cycle started. The phone had already updated to 4.02 did that do anything? Also I get constant errors that drivers suddenly are not properly installed (they were bofore! It shows up in device manager as Galaxy. Several weird names drivers appears as missing then go away. Now have dead phone-SOBS LOUDLY. Can I get it back to factory so i can try again? Help! (It will still boot into bootloader with the start screen.

    PS - on each reboot it goes to google screen than the flashy colored stuff then says upgrading android 6-6 then new screen starting applications then -reboot

    That is stock recovery hit the hour glass or search key if you have one and then hit apply update from SD. I am not sure at the moment but seems your needing to reapply or update from SD...try that ...may be different button on that device..

    Quite Sharp indeed....

    i had a similar situation happen to me earlier today. see if this works, boot into recovery you will see the "dead android" press the volume up and power button at the same time to reveal the recovery. do a wipe data/factory reset, it takes a while to run through so be patient. once its done the phone will reboot its self let me know if that helps you.

    okay try this step by step:

    1. Hold Power+volume up+volume down
    2. Use Power down to scroll to Recovery then hit power
    3. Use the power+volume up to get into actual recovery menu
    4. wipe your data/factory reset.

    let me know if this helps any.

    I think it will now be a lot more fun. Not sure I will attempt to root it at least tonight. It is getting late here.

    I recommend downloading the superboot files again and placing the newly downloaded install-superboot-windows.bat file in the root folder on your C:/ directory. You may have a corrupt file, this was the case with others having issues with rooting. Glad you got everything else sorted though.

    OK I doubt many will see this but I have an additional find. After the factory reset and successful reboot it was still unlocked (did not surprise me) but I was testing all my apps for compatibility with ICS and hit superuser - and it worked! Apparently I am rooted and it didn't fail! Root apps all work as intended. I sure am happy I don't have to risk that again :biggrin: but was sure the factory reset would wipe it out (if it did ever work).
