    Default Phone Keeps Restarting after Installing Custom ROM

    Hello All

    I am new at rooting and installing custom ROMS at android.

    I tried to root my android mobile (Qmobile A-900, which is a rebranded version of Gionee Elife E3 Specs and Data sheet) from here and was sucessful.

    I installed "MTK mobileuncle" app from google play store which would reboot phone to CWM Recovery when i select "recovery update" option.

    Next i tried to install a custom Rom and followed each and every step mentioned here
    "For CWM Recovery i follwed steps mentioned here"

    I made by current stock ROM backup file into SD saved in path SDCARD\clockworkmod\backup
    Then in CWM recovery mode i selected Format data/factory reset , then Install from ZIP, Select the Downloaded Zip (selected the custom ROM zip which was 383 Mb, the screen then installed and i recieved "sucessfully installed message while in cwm which then said that i should Reboot my phone which i did.

    But now i just get my old Stock Rom welcome logo when i boot my phone for 3 sec and then it restarts and the same thing happens again and again.


    Please help me if there is any way to solve this problem. "I know its not bricked coz it still displays stock rom logo and starts for a while."

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forums.
    I would force a reboot into recvoery, restore your backup so you can at least get back up and running.

    Then I would redownload the file, and try again.

    Is there any way you can reflash the stock ROM?

    Sorry, I keep forgetting you have a hard time staying in recovery without it rebooting. In this case, I am not sure what to suggest.
