Stuck in a boot loop after rooting

So i just upgrade from an Epic 4G (the original one) to this phone, and i backed up all my data with titanium backup. I rooted so I could restore data to my apps, and did a data-only restore. I went through the list and made sure to uncheck everything i could find that was system related, but I seem to have missed one or something, because my brightness appears to have reset as low as my old device.

So as it stands, it currently keeps booting and rebooting over and over. How do I get into recovery to wipe my settings or to do a restore? I can't seem to find that info anywhere.


Edit: Nevermind, i figured it out (apparently just hold down during boot up)

Still good post. Yes, you hold volume rocker when you power on. The down volume.

I don't understand how you ended up with a boot loop with just Titanium being used. Have you installed a custom ROM?

Yup, sorry, volume down (didnt notice i just put "down" in my post, intended to put "volume down")

Nope, no custom rom. Stock except for root. I was rooting specifically to use a few apps that require root (titanium being one of them). Like i said above, I think i accidentally restored some system data it didn't like, because I noticed my brightness settings after reboot became exactly like my epic, and I think that did it. I didn't INTEND to restore system data, just app data. After a factory reset, though, i was able to restore data only to my apps and things have been going fine since.
