General :: Bricked Rooted LG G2 After OTA / No Download Mode
Apr 24, 2014
I have the D-800 AT&T LG G2, It was rooted with KitKat 4.4.2. After I rooted my phone, I tried several different ways to install TWRP onto it. I tried FreeGee, adb shell, and straight from TWRP App, nothing worked, because when I tried to boot into TWRP it would just come up with the LG Logo and "Secure Boot Error" and "Certification Error" or something like that, then be a blank screen. I then just held the power button to turn it off, and it would turn back on and run fine, no problem. I figured it never installed right, and so I left TWRP alone. I know you are not supposed to take an OTA after install TWRP, but thinking TWRP never installed on the phone, I took the OTA, and now it will do the "Error" messages and blank screen, but my power off, power on trick doesn't work anymore. I can boot into Recovery Mode, but when I do a Factory Reset, the screen just goes blank. I have tried to put it into Download Mode by pressing Volume Up + Power when hooked up to a PC, but nothing happens. I feel as though its a tough brick.
my device is galaxy ace s5830i..i have already rooted my device and used CW Recovery and taken a copy of my original system.i wanted to set up a custom rom i restarted and reset and deleted the cash then installed the rom.i think it was Retribution beta then i wanted to update to that custom rom (MindCR ICS) all i did i restarted my phone of course went into R mode and reset and deleted the cash then installed that next custom rom .
after installing completed when i rebooted it only gave me (samsung galaxy ace s5830i) logo and doesn't open the system when i restart it doesn't go into recovery or download mode it only gives me again the same logo.i used odin v 1.81 and the latest version it doesn't recognize the phone and i can't go into download mode.
Ok so I rooted my LG Optimus F6 yesterday, I used root uninstaller to get rid of stock apps but by accident or careless I must have deleted LG setup wizard.. I later on that day Master Reset the phone and Now I can't get my phone to load up.. It turns on and brings me to LG setup wizard but says it unexpectedly stopped, I've tried hard resetting and I've went into safe mode and it brings up the message at the home screen, Home screen has unexpectedly stopped. Is there anything I can do to restore my phone back or somehow download setup wizard and install on to my phone from the PC. Also my PC isn't recognizing my phone so I can't even get into the files from the PC..
I have chinese phablet mtk8389 hd89 dual sim, 1gb ram, gps,quadcore, wifi,bluetooth,and microusb port problem is that if i connect it to any otg or usb cable to connect with computer it dont show any response but just start charging then i find oht a solution that i need to fix a file insode android system/etc/permissions name of file android usb host .xml i go to file and add the file but actually file not get added even i cannot edit any system file because i dont have permission then i find out that for doing that i need to root the device but how stupid is that if i dont have usb host mode active how i can onnect my device with computer for root?
It does not connect even dont show in computer that some usb device ger connected its very complicated, how i can enable usb host mode with out root device and if i have to root the device how i can root with out usb mode not working because with out usb host me the device will not be connected . i think my device is not rooted but i have acces to android all system files but i am unable to edit any file like it have write protected .
I'm having x10 2.3.3 rooted. and until recently I was able to download from the android market with no problem. But now when I click "download" it show downloading and than it says "can't download due to an Error" but it only happen in 3g mode or GSM. When in Wi-Fi it download normally.
I'm trying to update my phone and it won't boot into download mode :X so I'm trying to do it with adb my problem is I can't get adb commands to work because I don't know what the path should be in the variables :C my location for adb is "C:Program Files (x86)Androidandroid-sdkplatform-tools.adb.exe".
Just FYI in case anyone wants to know: For download mode, with the phone turned off, fold the number 1 key on the QWERTY keyboard and the power button simultaneously For recovery mode, with the phone turned off, hold Volume Down, CAmera, and Power simultaneously. You navigate with volume UP/DOWN, select with HOME, Menu toggles to "Manual Mode", whatever that it.
I have a galaxy samsung s3 and rooted it to download custom roms, etc. Which is all new to me fyi. Anyway, haven't decided on a rom yet, so still got the stock one going. When i get a notice to download a system update, and try to do it, it reboots to twrp recovery that i installed. Not sure what to do at this point or should i just not worry about the updates. Also, my phone doesn't recognize a usb connection when i hook it to my computer.
I'm trying to download Life360 & it's stuck in downloading mode when I try to download it throught the play store. Nothing ever dowloads, I just see the horizontal bar with the download indicator "downloading".
When I try to get it downloaded from my computer to my phone by sending the link, I click on the link & get the message that it is already installed but then it starts trying to download the app with the message "Waiting for Wi-Fi". I don't use Wi-FI and I never knew this needed Wi-Fi to download. I dont' care to be charged for Wi-Fi.
How can I get this downloaded and why would I get a message that it is installed but get the above happening (i looked everywhere on my phone & it's not installed)?
I have been running varying versions of cyanogenmod 10.1 and 10.2 for about year on my T-Mobile Galaxy S3, but today I tried to update it to a version of 11 today without a computer, just on my phone through the standard Cyanogenmod built in rom updater. It downloaded fine, but when attempting to install it it had an error and stopped. Now the only thing my phone will do is boot into clockwork mod recovery mode, and download mode. The download mode won't be recognized by kies or my computer, though my computer does make a beep sound when I plug it in. I have tried a lot of things, but nothing at all will work so my phone is essentially bricked right now.
i had ICS installed in my Galaxy S2 by myself using Odin.
I tried to install Jelly bean , but failed and now its in Downloading mode. i dont know what to do know. i tired to install GB stuck which got stuck on Cache.img. i even dont know which stock rom i need. and where i can download it from ?
its in download mode which show on top left
ODIN MODE PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9100 CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: YES (1 COUNTS) CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL
I have a major problem, because I can't use the recovery mode, because something is removed on the system level, that the recovery mode needs to start. (it isn't knox)
Also I can't boot up the system, because of an endless loop, when the device booted into the system, because there is also something removed.
I have now tried to install several other roms, all 4.2.2, but It still has the same errors, because the system doesn't get wiped and the bug remains even on a fresh rom. Stock or Custom. The Aroma Installer would work, but there isn't a rom with it, that is flashable via odin, only cwm.
Only download mode can be used to do something with the system.
So here are my questions:
What can I do, to erase/wipe the system only using the download mode (with odin/?/heimdall/ ?
Bonus: What exactly does the recovery mode needs to start...? Bonus: Is there a flashable rom for the s4 that has the aroma installer ? Bonus: Why most rom recently only use cwm to get installed ? (I guess it has alot more options and is easier to handle..)
Today I've bought a lightly used gt-i9082l for about 100 bucks.
I did check b4 buying that it will go into recovery mode and it looks like a real thing there. In the past I've seen s4 clones that won't do that, or if they go into recovery mode, something looks fishy in there.
This one goes into recovery mode.
It has two sim card slots. I did verify online both IMEI numbers - I used imei.info - it correctly identified the phone as Grand dous something. If it is a fake, then it's a pretty damn good one!
So, I'm pressing vol-down, home, and power.... Samsung lettering appears (no logo), and then it boot straight up....
Following different tutorials on how to root my device, they all begin with instructing me to enter "download mode." They all seem to say that I need to press Power+Volume Down+Home and, when the warning screen appears, press Volume Up. Well, I hold down Power+Volume Down+Home (I check a video to make extra sure I was holding down the correct buttons) and all that the device ever does is continually display the initial splash screen, the reboot again. If I let go, the device goes into "manual mode" in which it prompts to reboot, update the device or factory reset it. Am I missing something?
I have a samsung galaxy pocket (s5300). Once upon a time I rooted it without using odin and it worked
After I tried some custom roms. But in the end I used my CWM Backup file to restore my original rom. But the damn thing just doesn't wanna connect to kies any more. Now I wan't to reflash it's stock firmware with Odin and I'm using a nokia cable (i know that I should use the real thing but it isn't sold in my country + in the begining I didn't have any trouble with the cable and my father flashed an android 4.0.4 on his Samsung Galaxy Nexus using this same cable). So when i put my phone in download mode and connected it gives me unknown usb device. I downloaded the drivers installed them tried again, but the damn thing just doesn't associate with them.
Than I showed it the proper drivers manually ( you know device manager-->update driver-->sellect driver; you get the picture) and still nothing. And i really use Kies and want to fix the problem. What should I do.
So I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 X (GT-7560M) and basically I tried to flash CM11 on it, and when after the reboot, the phone was stuck in a boot loop and I can not access nor the Recovery mode nor the Download mode. I did try a USB jig and still no luck.
I tried to do a cyanogenmod update, but something went wrong and now I can't boot into android. I've tried going back into the recovery mode to reflash the rom, but it freezes there. I've also tried flashing clockworkmod recovery through ODIN and download mode, but the download back never moves at all, so I'm not sure if I can't use download mode or if it's just that ODIN isn't doing anything.
So the other day I rooted my phone and it just keeps restarting on me. Cant get into recovery mode or anything. Now I gotta send this phone back to Verizon and I don't want to send it back with it being rooted cause I don't want to get charged for the phone. Now my question is how can I mess up my phone so Verizon don't know that I rooted my phone. This may sound dumb but I kinda need a way to fry it or something like that.
