i just bought an HTC EVO 3d GSM x515m few days ago. After unlock from htcdev and instal custom rom my phone was working with a bug in 3d video. By trying to solve it by instaling some custom ROMs download on the net my phone cant boot any rom now even the one working before and cant stop bootlooping. before doing all those things i made an OTA update so my boot became HB 18.104.22.168.7 . i didnt do even one weeks with the phone. I want just to go back to my stock ROM but i cant coz the phone is not booting any ROMs
I have an Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" (the 2012 one, not the 2013 one), and I am trying to pre-root the stock software for it (version 7.4.6). I downloaded the update in a .bin format, renamed it to .zip and de-compiled it with 7-zip. I put the su and busybox binaries in "/system/xbin/", and added CWM's Superuser.apk to "/system/app/", and added a couple of more tweaks to it as well.
I adjusted the update-script file accordingly, and re-compiled the ROM. I moved it over to my Kindle, rebooted into recovery, wiped, flashed, and... bootloop and eventual TWRP.
I have an AT&T Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (SGH-I727) ...I flashed the CM10 Superheavy 5.0 ROM, but I did the Hercules (T989) by accident. Now my model number is (T989). I tried to flash the stock .tar file for I727, but I just kept getting the AT&T boot screen looping. How can I go back to I727 so I can reflash the correct CM10 ROM?
Just wanted to ask if there are any apps or utilities for android 2.3 devices that can autoplay a video on boot and loop it forever until the user closes the app. (Preferably if it will let me re-start the loop on restarting the app). Its for using a tablet as a display unit.
Im having a problem with boot looping on my rooted and rom'd droid. I dont know what happens to make it occur but sometimes after just running the phone it will start and I cant get it to stop.
What happens is: 1: Anytime i re-mount my SDcard 2: any time i boot
It will sit there and boot loop. Remounting the card causes the phone to crash to boot animation, and when it trys to start it show 'scanning SDcard" or whatever and then crashes... on the 3rd or 4th time it finally will get working. But it extremely annoying when your adding appps or working on the phone during a call. Does anyone know why this happens? Somethings i know DONT affect it:
Rom im running - ive had it happen on chevy, pete and adam and stock (FML) Overclock - Had it happen on stock kernal and OC Re-Root - Ive SBF'd and it will still occur but randomly SDcard errors - Windows shows no errors on disk
I'm using the ROM Manager but I have had this issue too when using the nandroid methods.
When I install just about ANY ROM other than the Cyanogen ROM I have issues with boot looping. Its very odd. If I am running the Cyanogen ROM I have no issues at all. I get the boot loop immediately after loading the ROM. No applications have been installed yet, and I have not even had the chance to do any restores using Titanium Backup.
The latest ROM I attempted was the Steam Dark Edge 1.2. Before that I have tried the Bugless Beast (Prior to 1.0) and with both I have boot loop issues. Also the same with the latest Ultimate Droid and Smoked Glass. So it must be something I'm doing or not doing.
If Im in the ROM manager I choose the option to allow the wipe. I have also booted into the Clockwork Recovery and manually wiped 2 times and attempted the update and again, boot loop.
When I am doing the ROM install from ROM Manager, the phone is running Cyanogen at the latest version. I don't remember ever installing a custom kernel but with all of the ROMS I have messed with over time I may have however that should be cleared with the wipe correct?
-power off -press and hold home -press and hold back -press and release power
This will bring you to a menu that gives you the option to erase user data or not, choosing yes will reset firmware to factory and you will lose ALL settings, including wallpapers, ringtones, etc, but your sd card will remain untouched... if you brick your hero this should help, but im not claiming responsibility if it doesnt.
My Galaxy S3 is frequently getting into hotboot looping state for no apparent reason. The only way to get it out of this state is to wipe the phone or restore a backup of the "data" folder only. After that, it might work for a week, but it might not work for a day (not work = start to hotboot loop). It happens when after the phone screen is locked, it doesn't wake up anymore. It doesn't answers to any calls (like if it's off) or notifications.Forcing a reboot (by holding the power button) or removing the battery able me to reboot it, but enter in hotboot looping state. I can make it go thru the whole booting state and I see the homescreen (And that's weird because I'm supposed to see the lockscreen first). Some widgets animation works but the device doesn't answer to touch (two softbuttons vibrates when touched, they do vibrate but don't render anything on Android) and then hotboots. Keeps doing this forever. Booting into safemode USED to work, but it doesn't work anymore, I don't know why.
After wiping the device or restoring the Data backup, device turns on as expected (restoring data takes it back to working state exactly like it was before the backup, even the same lockscreen pattern). I've tried to leave a terminal running logcat to catch the error, but it doesn't write in realtime, so when the bug breaks out, the logfile is empty.
I even thought it could be the S3 memory issue with firmware, but I'm using the "fixed" kernels. Also, it is recoverable, and not permanently dead.
I suspect of some rogue app, but I have too many apps to just go through installing one by one (and waiting even weeks to install the other one). Is there any way I can get a postmortem logfile or make logcat write in realtime?
I have to give a 20x20 presentation tomorrow and I'm looking for a timer app to help out. 20x20 means that each slide auto-advances after 20 seconds. I'd like to have a timer on my phone that would give me a quick glance of how much time I have left for each slide. Start it at 20 seconds, have it count down and when it hits zero, start over at 20. Seeing as it's just a timer app, I really would rather not pay $2 for StopWatch & Timer, which is the only one I've found that offers a looping timer. Does anyone have any ideas?
I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).
My understanding of the boot sequence is now:
A) normal boot: 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img -> 4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my customROM.zip -> 4b) data-partition, where i unpacked google-apps.zip and installed all the apps -> 4c) cache-partition with user data
B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery): 1) Power ON -> 2) bootloader -> 3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.
Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?
So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:
I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:
# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-04.18.49.55/ d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 . d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 .. ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5 ----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img #
So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.
Instead of seeing the boring old Android logo or my service provider's logo, I'd love to see the standard text-based Linux boot screen that shows the status of all the hardware and configuration info as my phone boots. My current phone is an HTC EVO 3D running Cool ICS with Sense 3.6 and Revolutionary CWM.
I have a cliq the was returned to our store that is looping even after an attempted recovery. being familiar with rooting would i be able to make that a working demo by rooting the device and flashing a stock rooted rom?
I am testing my wifi application with android and I need to test a lot of traffic over a long period of time. I need at least 24-48 hours for a stress test. I am wondering if anyone knows if I can get a youtube video to loop and replay.
I went to reboot my Droid because it was lagging a little and when it came back on it go stuck at the Cyanogen boot screen. I pulled the battery, put it back in and held the X to boot in recovery and my recovery won't come up either. It just skips right to the Motorola M and if it doesn't get stuck there it goes back to the Cyanogen screen.
I haven't made any changes to the phone at all so I am completely puzzled on why this is happening. I obviously can't take it back to Verizon since its rooted so if there is a way to fix this I really want to because I love my phone and my wife will kill me if it is screwed up.
How easy is it to make an application that's just a wrapper around the browser? Can the Android OS boot directly into that application so that only a certain application launches after boot. I'm building a client some custom software and I'd prefer to use one of those Archos 5 MIDs than a Linux netbook.
Is there a way by either an internal file or maybe an app to be able to track the boot log sequence of an Samsung Epic Touch (4G) Sprint (Or any other Android phone for that matter) . so if I have an error or an app is acting up I can tell which app or where in the boot up sequence there is a problem and what is causing it.
Now I have to uninstall the latest apps until I find the one that is causing a problem.
Also is there a way to for lack of a better word to (safe mode) or similar?
I recently just rooted my evo 3d sprint with the the boot 1.5 and everything went well. I decided i wanted to overclock my phone so i followed zeemaxs way. Before going into the overclock procedure i decided to do the the RCMIX Evo 3d kernel v. 2.2.3 first so i would have better results when done with the overclock procedure.I boot-up the kernel through the recovery mode on the phone butit failed to load so i just rebooted. After that my wifi and 4g stopped working. So i downloaded an app on the market called "flash image GUI" which lets me flash the kernels through the app. I flashed the RCMIX kernel and rebooted and now im stuck ima boot loop. I COULD just go back and back up to my old rom and settings etc but the problem is i dintmake any kind of back up or recovery i think.
I just did a system update on my phone this weekend and found that after the update the phone will not boot, I have tried everything to get it to boot but it just won't boot, I have also attempted to plug it into my computer to re-install the OS but the computer won't recognize it as it doesn't fully load the OS.
I have a new ace 3 LTE S7275R. I tried installing CWM recovery found here: URL....I tried with odin 3.07 and 1.85Every time, odin shows success, but when trying to boot into recovery, the phone gets stuck at "recovery booting...."The phone is otherwise working...getting CWM to work? how can I return to stock recovery at least?
I rooted my Samsung Galaxy S4 (SCH-I545), then I decided to install a custom ROM since the default TouchWiz rom is slower than a turtle stuck in a pile of wax. I installed Safestrap 3.71 (TWRP v22.214.171.124) and by mistake flashed my stock rom. Now my phone won't boot into any ROM since that is corrupt, but it still boots into recovery (that's a good thing I suppose). I have tried a number of Safestrap compatible roms (omni, cm, beanstalk) but they either end up giving me a black screen or a very weird looking pixelated blue/cyan screen. I have to remove the battery to reboot my phone. I tried using adb to wipe the data aswell but nothing works beyond recovery. I have to rely on adb to push and pull data to and from the phone.
