    Phone stuck in boot loop

    I will tell the story in full so bare with me, I rooted my phone using nexus root toolkit to install six axis controller...no problems phone has worked fine since. Today i saw on google+ that someone had modded their lock icon and thought it looked cool so attempted it myself at work using metamorph, when my phone re booted it was stuck in boot loop, i wasnt happy but thought i will just recover it when i get home using root toolkit, so got home fired up root toolkit but it wouldnt come out of search for adb, so i unpplugged phone and pulled battery (regretting that now maybe i should of been more patient) anyhow now the phone is stuck at the screen as follows top left in red odin mode Start in a green arrow at top android figure in middle below him in white downloading below that in green do not turn off target then some device info below that in white. If i press power button which the green arrow is pointing to it goes into boot loop....???? I know im a noob but if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

    Looks like you were in download mode. Pull battery and re-insert. Push and hold volume up & down + power. You will be in the bootloader. Use the volume buttons to navigate to recovery. You should now be in CWM recovery. Wipe data, cache, dalvik and system (in mounts and storage). Flash a backup or a downloaded rom that you have on your phone. You should be good to go.

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    When you are in recovery, this where you flash roms, make back-ups. Before you do anything like that you need to wipe things that were left over from the last thing that you did. Wiping cache, dalvik, and system (will not touch your sd contents but don't wipe sd partition). After wiping the above, you need to flash a rom or a back up that you hopefully made to start fresh. You can go to install zip>choose zip and scroll to where you have a rom or backup.

    No that means you actually do not have custom recovery installed on your phone. That is stock recovery. You should try going back to the tool kit you used to root your phone and install custom recovery. The other option is to get back to stock if there is that option in that tool kit and just start over.

    Is there a flash custom recovery? Flashing stock recovery is not what you want at this point. If you can not flash custom recovery it might be better to flash stock image and start fresh.
