General :: Allwinner Clone Soft Bricked - Black Screen / Reboot Loop And Recovery Corrupted
May 26, 2014
I have an Allwinner A10 clone (Kurio 7), it is designed for kids but otherwise a standard android tablet. After hours of googling I rooted and installed CWM & Gapps (not included in the stock ROM). So far so good. The stock ROM was causing issues with some apps, it needed to go.
I flashed CM10 and it worked but no touch screen. It needed a compatibility flash to make it work. You can guess what's coming. I picked the wrong one and now the device does the following:
Black screen (backlight though)
PWR+Vol up no longer gets to recovery
Vibrates constantly between reboots (due to wrong patch I'm guessing)
ADB picks up the device for a split second between reboots but "adb reboot recovery" does nothing. Even when using wait command. Tried "fastboot flash recovery cwm.img" after wait command, no luck. Is there anything else I can try?
- bought a Thomson QM734-8G tablet (Allwinner A13b clone), running Jellybean 4.2.2; - PC interface worked fine in MTP and large storage modes; - setup Android SDK & Java JDK on PC and communicate with tablet via ADB;
All OK so far..After a couple of days, I decided to replace stock recovery with ClockworkMod Recovery, so I could start messing about with the tablet.
I found the CWM 184.108.40.206 mod supposed to work with these tablets and, following instructions, determined it was indeed running on sun5i hardware and had 10 partitions (nandj) and downloaded the appropriate version.
I used ADB sideload to install CWM and everything appeared to work OK ... until I rebooted and found myself stuck in a never-ending cycle of CWM-based recovery bootloop.All I get is the CWM recovery console, with a few lines of error & the tablet will go no further.
E:can't mount /cache/recovery/command E:cant mount /cache/recovery/log E:cant open /cache/recovery/log E:cant mount /cache/recovery/last_log E:cant open /cache/recovery/last_log
CWM functions work properly and nothing will mount through the 'Mounts and Storage' section, although sideload mode still seems to work.Attempts to use ADB sideload to install a different CWM or other recovery image have all failed, and LiveSuit and PhoenixSuit both have issues detecting the tablet (despite trying various versions of each & following instructions precisely), so I can't flash a replacement ROM to fix things.
At the moment, I just want to rip CWM out and go back to factory recovery mode and have a working tablet again! I think the Bootloader is locked and the tablet is unrooted. Superuser or SuperSU don't want to install properly. However, using ADB, it looks like I can get root access in shell (#).
I've been scouring the internet for the last view months since initially attempted to root my admittedly out of date htc view. A friend gave it to me in exchange for an old comp I built. I attempted through revolutionary to root, went through HTC and unlocked my device, continued to try and root it but found no proper software that worked to do so. Even tried something called mulitool which was pretty cool, but didn't get the job done. After a time I gave up on rooting, and my tablet powered down and I found myself stuck at the recovery screen. None of the options for clear storage, factory reset, or anything else proved fruitful. I removed my sd and was able to boot up fine. This was months ago. Now I'm having a similar problem only now even without SD card it's in a boot cycle where it boots to recovery for 30 seconds or so and shuts down, then back to recovery and like this ad infintum.
my screen reads:
relocked **security warning express pvt ship s on rl microp 0656 hdboot 1.14 0005 radio 1.05.01 eMMC-boot
Basically I ran Livesuit to flash my Chinese Tab, its called a desiretab has an a10 processor. Anyways the first flash was successful, besides the fact that it didn't pick up touch calibration correctly. So, I decided to flash it again with a different firmware image, low and behold it gets about 50% in and just freezes up. Now the Tablet shows no form of screen output, I attempt to flash it repeatedly, nothing works.
When I say I attempt to re flash it and nothing works, I'm saying that it just sticks at zero and the flash command does nothing.
Tablet hangs in Bootloop after installed cm9_nightly_20120721 + protab2xxl_compatibility_1.2.0 startet from cwm 220.127.116.11. Noticed that the "/data" partition only has 15MB of Space with 0B Byte free. I wiped the cache after installation with cwm, i am not able to boot to cwm again because key combinations not work on this device.
Got a T15A Generic tablet which has the same Hardware than protab 2 xxl, Goclever A103, Coby 1042 etc..how to get CM9 or CM10 running?
My Gnex has started to loop on boot screen and then reboot (Slimbean 4.3 update 2). I tried to wipe cache partition , to wipe dalvik cache, to flash the same rom, to flash another rom, to delete all data... but nothin happens.. it seems like the recovery (CWM) can't delete anything! if i delete or format anything , nothing happens! but the recovery told me that the process has succedeed.. I tried using Wugfresh toolkit to flash stock and also Odin.. but nothin happens.. I tried some casual commands on ADB, but i'm no good with ADB.
It is two days now that my GS2 (stock 4.1.2, PhilZ latest kernel + some bloatware removal and little ROM integrations, like androidlost: nothing recent, anyway) after being turned off all night long, boots up to the home: it responds for half a minute than freezes for a minute or two; then soft-reboots and then go all ok.If I turn it off and on, I have no problems: this only happens at first boot in the morning.
I'm not sure, but it also seems that if I let it boot the first time without touching anything, after the screen goes black the autoreboot does not trigger.
I have a samsung s 4 clone,my phone voice call are very soft regardless of incoming and outgoing.but i tried with line,viber, skype it can hear just like normal phone. I just don't understand why is the voice call is very soft, how to boost the volume? I tried upgrading to never firmware but it still the same..
I'm trying to build CWM for the HP Slate 7 Plus, but both touch and non-touch builds coming from the CWM Builder and manually built builds give a black screen with a few white lines when booted into recovery. The stock recovery.img I provided to the builder is valid because people were able to reflash the same recovery.img via Flashify with no issues, which is the same method used to flash the defunct CWM. I don't have the Slate 7 Plus, so I can't test things myself
The best I can do right now is debloat, deodex, and pre-root ROMs, as well as install more system apps.
I recently bought a Chinese Mediatek 'pbablet' phone/tablet combination; running Android 4.2.2 Model: MTK6572. Due to it being cheap, it was ideal so I thought, for flashing and development, however I maybe wrong.
However I cannot get it into recovery mode. It won't display the menu when holding down volume + and the power button when powering on.
When pressing these two buttons together on start-up, it actually remains a black screen, and it won't turn on after doing this, and I have to keep pressing the tiny reset button on the side of this device every time I attempt to enter recovery, to get it to turn on as normal again.
Pressing and holding volume - and power at the same time on start-up brings up "Factory mode" (in Chinese) and has no options available for flashing/ROM/ functions, except 'testing' the devices' hardware. This phone doesn't have any other physical buttons except power, volume + and -
I am able to successfully enter CWR by flashing it with MTKDroidTools and rebooting into the recovery mode (while powered up and in the android OS) however I still cannot get into CWR or any recovery mode at all while powering up with power and volume +
I just want to be able to enter a recovery mode on this device, to ensure no future issues and doubts upon the unfortunate events of a permanent brick. My idea is to flash this phablet with ParanoidAndroid; or cyanogenmod, and I could try doing this with a software reset, but then what if the ROM is incompatible, and totally bricks it? Then I have no way in hell to revive and reflash, because I can't access the recovery mode anyway.
I have came to the conclusion that it maybe due to the filesystem, potentially due to it's fbifs, that is the cause to no recovery mode, but what if it's ext4, does any of this make a difference.
Is there any way to make this device open the recovery menu while powering it on?
When I attempt to enter recovery mode while powering up with volume +, the device is basically a brick, until I press reset. It doesn't respond at all. The only way to enter recovery menu is by booting into android resetting the device into recovery mode via an app.

All TextViews in my app appear like this, including my settings screen. The text do you see are images. The application continues functioning just fine and we are not able to reproduce the issue consistently, it just seems to happen after a long period of use.
So, I flashed .92 hboot from adrynalynes website and it is stuck in some kind of weird hboot boot loop. When I try to reboot it just goes black and comes back to this screen. I can get to clockwork and do and nandroid backup, but I just wanted to know what potentially caused this so I can avoid this in the future.
I SOFT BRICKED my lg e730 while trying to install HarshGinger v3.
I tried to root my phone, and everything was ok until I tried to install the rom. I saw in recovery how the rom was installing, and when all was completed the phone entered into a boot loop. I think that I should install first a stable cyanogen mod and then harshginger.. I think this is what I done wrong. The phone it`s soft bricked because I can reach to the emergency mode screen.
Question: I can do a reboot from ADB or I have to use KDZ? KDZ looks like the type of program used by the smart people and I`m not really that smart. I am looking for a simpler solution, like a combination of buttons or something.
i installed flyrom v4 in ma htc explorer through clockworkmod... When i tried to reboot it stucks in the htc splash screen..Still not coming to home screen. And i partitioned ma sd card ext2 using minitool and i linked it thru link2sd... But it doesnt mount in clockworkmod... But flyrom instaled perfectly...
last week i decided to install cyanogenmod on my phone.Im using international version of Galaxy Note GTN7000.
I saw there was a windows installer on cm website..but wanted to make a backup of my current rom.. i rooted my phone using kingo android root..installed rom manager..flashed latest clockworkmod recovery.. but on booting into recovery,i found stock recovery was being forced..i read somewhere it was because of unlocked bootloader..
on cyanogenmod wiki page,i found installation of clockworkmod recov using heimdall..everything went fine ...blue progress bar was shown in the download mode...and when i rebooted into recovery mode i saw the first danger sign..there was a yellow triangle beneath galaxy note logo..
and then it booted into clockworkmod recovery 5.8..Foolishly i did a system backup..rebooted...surprised to find phone went into black screen after displaying a note logo with yellow triangle beneath..tried recovery from clockworkmod without hope but that didnt work as expected...
All i need now is to install cyanogenmod 10.1.3 stable on my device..i dont want a custom rom backup anymore..'
I installed CM using CWM onto my HTC Deluxe. I tried 4 different nightlies and the 10.2 stable and after installing any of them, I get this... it reboots into the white htc screen with a quick vibrate. Then it goes black for a second and reboots again. No CM screen or anything!
I've tried flashing it multiple times, doing factory resets, clearing cache and dalvaic cache. I am at a loss as to what to do next. with the 10.2, instead of rebooting it just gets stuck at the HTC white screen!
Dropped my E4G, and I suppose in the impact the continuity between the card and socket were broken, and, well, I now have a useless sd card until I format it.
Problem is, I have very important photos on this card I would REALLY like to get off because they are not able to be replaced. Pictures of my daughter.I have tried EaseUS and Minitool, which did not work. Tried chkdsk, but the card is listed as RAW, so no go.
I went through the long process of setting up my new Evo LTE yesterday. Basically, installing and configuring a bunch of apps. Everything was looking good and working well. So the last thing that I decided to do last night was to give it a reboot. I saw it reboot (and was nice and fast) so I walked away. When I came back I noticed that it seemed to be rebooting again. So I watched it. The phone starts up and I can unlock it. I see items in the notification bar starting, I see a message right above the bottom menu bar appear stating "Content update error. Try again later.", and then about 30 seconds later the screen goes gray and then reboots. I have time to get in and look at settings and uninstall things - about 1 minute. But I really do not know where to start.
Is there a way of preventing apps from auto starting at boot? The phone is stock (no root).
something strange happened today on my tablet got cyanogem 10 installed and running on the tablet, when i go to market and installed the ebay application tablet reboot, and now will not start, I tried to format the partition / data tablet and after a few seconds Reboot....,
My Android phone is soft bricked it is an VS870 LG 4G Lite Lucid II.
This is the second time my phone becomes bricked due to my last incident with my samsung. It has nothing to do with it being rooted, but uninstalled some apps in the phone which I thought had nothing to do with the system. IDK last one I uninstalled was zappos. I know how to un-brick my phone, but my only problem is getting the phone to be recognized by my computer. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers, removing the battery from the phone, using different USB ports still no luck . Could it be that the battery percentage went below 75%? if so I have no way else to charge, it does not seem to charge anymore?
How to install cwm recovery,to flash rom and any available custom roms for this phone...
my phone is a galaxy s3 clone

I rooted to BB 0.4 and I am using ROM Manager. Tried to boot to recovery using Power X and would never reboot stayed on M screen. Then I looked at ROM Manager and it mentioned "Reboot into Recovery" so I tried that - notta. Just went into hang mode and then eventually did a normal reboot to home screen. Am I missing something here?
I rooted a friends phone and when I try to get to the recovery reboot screen it freezes on the HTC screen, I have to remove the battery and boot normally, and it works just fine. I have rooted two other hero's with no problems. I've tried a wipe and doing the process over again and the same thing happened.
