    Hey guys. I tried to ota update my cm Rom for my gs3 and now I am stuck in a boot loop. How can I reset my device so I can flash a new Rom to it to fix the boot loop?

    Which do you have installed? I don't know samsung phones that we'll but if you pull the battery, replace it then press whatever button combo is needed you should.

    Or use Odin to get back to stock.

    Hopefully someone with more specific knowledge will chime in soon.

    Volume Up / Home button / power button should get you to recovery

    I can't get into recovery. When I hold volume up/home/power it just stays as a black screen and when I release it just reboots again and goes back into the loop.

    Okay I restored the phone to stock but I can't enter recovery. I hold home/power/volume up and I see a "recovery booting" text I'm blue in the top left of the screen and then it stays black until I let go of them and then it boots regularly.

    I can get to stock Rom but I can't flash a custom recovery or Rom. I'd like to use the phone but I can't with a stock Rom.

    Edit: I also can't boot into recovery.
