    You didn't kill your phone, it's just in a boot loop. In recovery, make sure that you wipe /system partition and the /cache partition before flashing CM (Cyanogenmod). You did make a backup before doing anything right?

    I think you have the basics down, just have to make sure you follow the instructions to the letter. If you are having trouble send me a PM or post back here, I'd be happy to help. I've flashed roms on tons of different phones over the years. It all seems kind of complicated but once you have it down you'll be flashing roms like a pro in no time. Just remember if your phone still turns on it can always be fixed. Don't get too frustrated, even I have trouble sometimes. There are tons of users on this forum like me that are here to help!

    Well, yes you are correct you have killed your phone ! Well the video looks quite good and I think the problem might be somewhere else! Do one thing try doing the same again and if that doesn't help you head over to the XDA thread and follow the steps they have mentioned. (See more over here). Let me know if that helps you out !

    The official CM nightlies are not made for KK. Even tho they are 4.4, they still run off of 4.2 source code. Install the build from the thread below. It is built off of 4.4 sources.

    If you're using the official nightlies from the CM website then yes. The thread I posted earlier is an unofficial CM build based off the 24a update (official KK).

    Also, check out the Mahdi ROM thread (under the G2 original android development section). I've been running it for a few months now and have never looked back to go to stock. Its stable and smooth

    You have a custom recovery installed right? Like TWRP? Meaning you downgraded the bootloader to 12b?

    I do have TWRP installed using AutoRec! Just booted to recovery to flash this. Then I'm done... I'll have Stock 4.4.2, The G3 Rom and Mahdi Nandroids and I'll not look at flashing again. LOL
