    So I have a 4.2.1 ROM installed. It is running just great, but I decide to try a new kernel. I download one. I reboot to CWM to make a backup. Backup usually takes a few minutes, so I just leave it be. Come back 5 minutes or so to find that it's stuck at the "Backup space freed up" (or something along those lines) part. I reboot back into CWM, and now I can't do anything. If I try to back up again, CWM goes blank. I then try to reboot the phone. It gets stuck at the Google screen.

    I'm very confused. This has never happened before. Can someone explain to me what went wrong and how I can fix it?

    I get still get into CWM, but it seems as if it isn't reading the SD card...

    Followed the "Return to Stock" guide at the top and got out of the problem. I'm still perplexed as to how it happened though.

    You probably flashed a 412 kernel.
    They are not compatible with 421 roms.

    I would definitely agree but if I read it right he didn't even flash the new kernel, just was making a nanny. Can't say I've heard of this happening before. Bummer. At least you see how this phone is as unbrickable as they get

    The kernel I had on the ROM was definitely for 4.2.1. I downloaded another 4.2.1 kernel to try, but I never got around to flashing it because CWM got hung up making a nandroid backup. It was at that point that the phone stopped recognizing the "SD card" and went into a bootloop when I tried to boot it up. It was really weird.

    Definitely need to be on the latest version of whichever recovery you are using for doing anything 421 related.

    I think this might have been the most likely issue.

    That may have been it. I'm on the latest CWM now and flashed MMuzzy's build and have had no issues whatsoever. Thanks everyone!
