Have you run into trouble? Here are some fixes.

1. After installing the ROM, the first reboot takes 5 to 10 minutes. If it stuck at bootloop, enter into recovery mode, and factory reset your device as well as wipes data/cache partition.

2. If you come across any error message or crashed while installing the ROM, it means the ROM package or not meant for your device.

3. If your phone does not boot anymore, enter into download mode and try to reinstall Samsung original firmware using Odin (you can download original ROM for your device from Sammobile.com)
