    In recovery mode, try wiping the cache partition. Might just be an issue with the booting of the device.
    That will not delete any user data, so you don't have to worry about backing anything up.

    Is this a Galaxy S5 phone or a Samsung mp3 player? (If it's an S5 phone, for which carrier? You can't flash a CM ROM to a Verizon or AT&T S5.)

    It's the MP3 player.

    Hey thx for the reply but dosdude1 (I should call him ender lol) has helped me. Yeah it was all my fault, the gapps maybe. But I'll keep the clear cache partition in mind in case I mess up again. =) thanks
