    I have lots of questions.

    First, when you say stuck on bootloader, what do you mean? Can you not get out of the bootloader menu? Can't get into recovery? How about Odin mode (download)?

    When you say, I tried everything, what does that mean exactly? What have you tried exactly? Have you tried reinstalling the ROM? Have you tried flashing a different ROM? Can you restore a backup? Have you tried flashing back to stock, and starting over? .....tons of different things to try, but without more information on what you have tried it is hard to help.

    I'm a tad confused myself. Stuck on the bootloader? You mean when you boot it up, it freezes and takes you into fastboot mode? Or are you just getting "stuck" on the Google logo? Note that sometimes JB has a long boot time due to a file system check. Give it a few minutes if its simply stuck on the logo.

    Also, if you plan to go back to stock anyway, why not simply fastboot TWRP recovery and then adb pull what you need from your SD card? I know you said you don't have computer access, but running Wug's requires a computer as well...

    My advice is simply to return to stock. Just fastboot the stock images either manually or through Wug's kit. If you can get access to a computer earlier than that, I can save your photos.

    You can't...it's important when flashing ROMs to make sure you leave debugging on. Are you sure your debugging is off? Does it not show up with the command "fastboot devices"?

    **Does ODIN require debugging being enabled? If not, you could try that, but I'm pretty sure you might be SOL. Try booting your phone up normally and leave it alone for 20 minutes. If it still hasn't advanced past the Google logo then there's not really much you can do at this point.**

    Well that's good. That means your debugging is, in fact, ON. Which is good. Where are you trying to download the factory img from? Might I suggest here if you haven't already tried it?

    I was trying to download mysid imm76 from wugs tool kit...but it seems to be giving me a problem...I'm trying to download the factory image from the link that you just provided..hopefully it downloads..so as long as my device is seen om fastboot devices I can most likely flash it back to stock? Any other problems I might could run into?

    How long have you given it at the google screen? As mentioned Jellybean has a filesystem check at boot, which can lead to some long boot times. Folks have hit ~30 minutes before. This shouldn't

    It downloaded fine for me. It is directly from Google, so theoretically it should be fine. Does it time out on your end, or do you get an error?
