    Can you boot into recovery? If so you can flash the backup I hope you made before you rooted.

    After the rom is installed and you reboot. It may take several minutes to boot the first time. This is normal. However as long as you have a custom recovery or have odin installed you can ALWAYS reinstall the rom or go back to stock.

    When I installed Jelly Bean on my OG Galaxy Tab 10.1 it took 45 minutes to boot into Android. No joke. I set the thing on a table after I got bored of staring at it. Came back awhile later and it was fine. But yeah hopefully you can get it into recovery or Odin and fix it.

    Did you fix it? Because I installed System Tuner Pro on my N2 and messed with the CPU (I never did this setting on my Skyrocket), and it's stuck on the Samsung screen now *facepalm*.

    Edit: Okay, I did a battery pull and quickly (I mean, very quickly) got my phone into Download mode so I could fix it with Odin. Good to go

    I'm curious in a pre-root state, what would you back up and how?

    He said he was rooted and it was running fine. I usually make a backup after a successful root/rom in case I do something screwing around.

    For other people who have this issue, you can also use adb to push a rom to your phone and install it from recovery. Adb is a super useful thing to know. I recommend everyone reads on how to utilize this tool, and keeps a reference, if needed, around. If you can get a boot animation, there's usually a way to save it (not always).
