So upon trying to root and install a custom GPE rom, to be exact, I had succeeded and successfully gotten the rom on, however from the get-go it was stuck in a bootloop on the 4 circles animation. after around 20 minutes of a laggy boot animation (I showered in wait.) I knew something went wrong. I am able to get into the recovery screen, but not into recovery. the device will not turn off (attempts will only lead to the phone powering up by itself and going back into the 4 circles) nor will it go into recovery mode. my computer is still able to pick it up via USB and adb. If I choose the fastboot option will tell me the device is connected when entering the remount command - however I am not able to browse my phone's files via windows. I also do not have a Micro-SD so the rom/root files are stored internally. I did make a Nandroid back up. I used this [ toolkit and tutorial for my rooting, and their adjacent S-Off tutorial to perform that action. This was my first ROM, and I have not flashed any kernels.
Is there any redemption for me, or have I unfortunately bricked my phone? Is there any possibility AT&T will take pity on me and charge me just a smaller-than-new fee for a replacement?
