yes i did download a system.7z file from xda but i dont know how to use it.


been there, done that with that same file (along with FIVE other system/app dumps) NONE of them had the right checksum for me. The file you have is a 7zip compressed file. you will need 7zip to decompress/extract the needed files for your phone (if they are even the right ones).

no i never installed any recovery apps. i cant boot my phone i cant get passed the bootloops. i got into the stock recovery and erased the userdata and catch but that didnt do me any good. i dont have a rom to install but that wouldt help idont think because i cant install anything using stock recovery.

well you did a factory reset which should wipe any clues that you've rooted. I'd take it to a store and claim it's a faulty device for exchange. Then hopefully if the give you that replacement I'd chalk it up to a learning experience and install a recovery immediately following root. Without SBF or fastboot files I don't see how we can fix that phone.

That's exactly what you need to tell the Verizon rep. Make it look like their fault. Blame the OTA that was pushed to your phone. Just make sure to swap the miniSD cards in the phone before they send it back. you'll want to keep your apps user data, etc.

Did you try a hard reset - hold down the "up volume" key and then press and hold the "power" button.
