General :: Samsung Galaxy Reverb - Black Screen After Flashing Custom Built CM10 ROM?
Jan 9, 2013
My Samsung Galaxy Reverb has nobody willing to build CM10 for it, so I decided to take on the task. It built without error - processed the kernel and all the CyanogenMod 10 files just fine and generated the .zip. However, after flashing the .zip I end up with a Samsung logo, then a black screen.
The compile went through without error, so I'm a little lost as to what I should check next. From doing a little searching it seems the kernel is at fault, but what to do about that. Am I supposed to flash the kernel separate from the .zip that the CM builder outputs?
Trying to get CM10 built for the Samsung Galaxy Reverb. It's building just fine, but no matter what we try it WILL NOT BOOT. We get a black (backlit) screen after the Samsung logo and nothing more.
I've tried flashing the stock boot.img over the rom, building and flashing the stock kernel seperately (that boots the stock rom just fine when flashed but won't boot CM10), and tried modding the ramdisk to boot, but nothing is working.
I've looked at other MSM7x30 devices to find if I'm missing anything, but I can't find anything that I don't have in the device folder.
I have an issue since i start installing custom ROMS. So, is not my first time installing a ROM. I have installed stock ROM's in the past. However, not custom ones. I have rooted my device in the past and even now before installing a custom ROM. I have installed through TWRP recovery various custom ROMS such as Omega, AOSP, ARROW, WanamLite, Google Edition and CyanogenMod but none of them worked fine for me.
In some ROMS I might not have reception (don't worry the IMEI is the same and backed up). However, in EVERY ROM my dialler crashes; for example, when im trying to make a call it freezes and the screen goes black without seeing anything. On the other hand, when I receive a call, screen takes ages to appear and show the caller or even accept the call. In addition, I have NO SOUND at all in every ROM as well.
I believe that the kernel might be the problem. This is because when i am booting the phone I always see the following:
I have tried clearing cache, dalvik, removing battery, installing stock ROMS etc.... and nothing changed!
I have lately flashed CM10.1 nightly on my GT-I9300 and am experiencing high battery drain (twice-three times what I had before), and get over 1%/h over the night when all is turned off.I have read a lot about fast battery drain reasons, but couldn't find an answer to mine.I've downloaded better battery stats to check for any abnormal activity, but it seems normal to me (dump attached).
Note, I've installed the cm10.1 straight from my internal memory and I do not have an external SD card.Also, from the dump file it seems that the phone was mostly in deep sleep mode and I see no reason then why it wouldn't just drain at 1-2% per 8h.
I dropped my phone for the first time ever today, and there are cracks under the screen, and no picture whatsoever. Sounds and buttons still work, and I can turn the phone on and off, but the display remains utterly blank. I've pretty much written the phone off, there's probably nothing I can do for it. However, I would love to recover my pictures, contacts, and music from the phone. Is there any way I can do this without being able to see the phone display?
Today when I'm was coming out of gym my phone just fell to the floor. The battery disassembled but it seemed not a big problem.
When I tried to switch it on, the screen became black, but i noticed that the screen turns on because it is not complete black, i noticed a bit of light change. And the most amazing is that I can ear the sound of the music of boot, and the tactile buttons are also with light.
Maybe I can't solve it at home because i would need to dissasemble it but I look for my guarantee and that's in time, the problem is that the phone is rooted, and with rom enhance 236, and this broke my guarantee, can install stock rom just using usb cable?
Lately my phone has made it a habit of showing a black screen when I open an app. At first it was just one app that I could not open, and now most apps have this problem. It is very difficult as even my contacts and messages aren't showing. Also sometimes it starts buzzing with no reason.
I have tried to re install some of the apps, however this did not work.
i was listening to music on my samsung galaxy sII and then it stopped and turned black , i removed the battery and placed it again , after that it was stuck in the samsug boot logo where it started to show samsung multiple times , i did the same thing remove and place the battery and after that it just turned black and doesn`t turn on again or even charge.
I was following this guide to upgrade my Sanei n10: [URL] In recovery mode I have installed the rom.zip, but after I pressed the wrong button and it turned off. Now, when I turn it on, leave the writing sanei and after few second remains on black screen.
If I try to entry in recovery mode with the vol+ button, it remains with the Android robot lying down with a red tiangolo, with no options.
I have a Galaxy S (GT-I9000M) which doesn't boot past the start-up splash screen and sound effect. Eventually it will just switch to a black/blank screen and do nothing more. The back and menu buttons still light up if tapped.
The history how I got it this way, was I was using the app web-sharing lite to transfer some files through wifi without the need of a usb cable. I was transferring a large movie file when the phone locked up. I reset the phone, and upon boot every app and service was crashing. Tried this a few times, then pulled the battery etc, still the same. Then I booted into recovery mode(vol up+home+pwr), and applied wipe data/factory reset, then rebooted. This is when it started to only boot into the black screen.
This is a Canadian phone, service/bought through bell, the phone had the one click root applied to it so TI Backup could run on the device. So I think I'm out of luck with any warranty service.
I can get into the phones recovery mode and download mode, so I think there is still hope for this phone to be recovered. What I don't know is what firmware version Bell ships with these devices, and where I can download it?
I installed custom ROM on my Lenovo S890 phone, which works great and has all I need. But there is this problem (similar like in this post [URL] .....). When I try wake up the phone from standby mode, all I see is a dark screen with vertical stripes of several colors all over it. I can however set volume and even the display responses after pushing buttons it vibrates. So it works, but the screen is broken.
When I install original ROM, everything works fine. But when I install any of these custom ROMs found on [URL] .... I have the same issue with the screen.
I'm currently trying to fix this problem with software jBART v0.7.9 - I decompiled the original ROM that works fine and also decompiled the custom ROM I want to fix. Then I'm trying to copy files from original to custom ROM, hoping somehow I overwrite possibly broken files and everything should work afterwards.
I wanted to create a simple bootanimation for my HTC Desire. I found a couple of websites explaining pretty much everything from folder structure to the contents of desc.txt, so I started playing around a little bit.
However after pushing my first customized bootanimation to the phone, all I get is a black screen after the initial HTC logo.
I already tried using desc.txt files from different bootanimations that I found on the web. I even extracted and re-zipped a downloaded bootanimation so I could see if that could possibly be the problem. But none could solve my black screen.
At least I think I have narrowed down the problem to the png files I use. My last guess is, that I save those files using the wrong settings.
I use Photoshop CS 5 using the following workflow:
First I create the frames that I want in my animation (just like build a GIF file). The I opened File-->Export-->Render Video. Then I select "Image Sequence", choose PNG, disable interlacing in the settings and finally choose a 480x800 resolution. Alpha channel is set to "None".
After that I use IrfanView to change the image color depth to 24bit and save the files in the part0 folder. None of my files is bigger than 30 KB.
I installed ADW.Launcher today on my Galaxy S, and have ended up with a black screen. I'd like to fix it without a factory reset, if possible.Galaxy S, Android 2.1, bought in Singapore, SingTel settings but bought it unlocked. Currently in Indonesia. (Can't look up Baseband Version, Kernel Version and Build Number on the phone now for obvious reasons.)A short while after installing ADW.Launcher, the Home button became unresponsive, and a minute or two later the phone restarted itself (the way it's done by itself a handful of times since I bought the phone - without going through the whole power down and power up sequences of sounds and graphics). Then I only had a black screen with date and time at the bottom, and the menu and back buttons lit up, and now I can't get the display back. It seems to start normally, with the logos and sounds, but just returns to that black screen with date and time.
I know something's going on inside because I can swipe to unlock the screen (giving me a purely black screen). If I then press and hold Home, I get the haptic vibration that normally goes with the "recently used" menu. But if I randomly tap all over the black screen, and try to use the menu and back buttons (guessing where the menu items are) I get no response, and no haptic vibration.Holding down the power button gives me the usual power menu - I can select "Power off," but it restarts. I've removed the battery a couple of times, waited and replaced it - but no change.
At first I thought it was related to my SIM card, as it did the self-restart thing yesterday about 20 min after I got a new SIM card. But doing a google search suggests that this problem is sometimes related to launchers. And I removed the SIM card and restarted (removing battery) and it didn't help.The closest I could find to an answer to this problem was in the Droid X forum: HELP! I uninstalled launcher pro, and now have a black screen! - The solution there was to do a factory reset. I'd really rather not do that, but may not have a choice.
I just plugged into Kies and performed a Firmware update, which I assume was the Froyo update. It all ran it's course perfectly and the phone then went to reboot. Following this, it hung on the Galaxy S animated screen before simply going to a black screen (I know the phone is still on, because the two bottom corner buttons will light up if pressed).
I realise that this black screen is quite common, and that people suggest booting into recovery mode. The problem is, I've never been able to get my phone into recovery mode. I turn the phone on and hold down Power + Home + Voume Up for a couple of seconds and then let go... it does nothing, it just goes onto the Vodafone screen and then carries on booting.
I also tried holding down these buttons for a little longer, but all that it does is pushes the phone into a constant restart loop (as obviously I'm holding down the power button).
I am using GAOSP B2 and when I make try to make a call it dials out but the screen goes black and the only way to get out is to remove the battery. Strange the first call I made with this ROM was fine. Anyone else have this issue?
After buying a HTC Desire in August, I've been very happy with it. The best phone I have ever owned. And after rooting it and installing LeeDroid's 1.9a ROM, I've been enjoying the tweaks and a2sd+. Anyway, I have a Telus Desire which I unlocked and am using with Fido. I followed this guide to root and this to install the LeeDroid ROM.
Ever since then, however, I have not been flash any new ROMs. When I flash a new ROM using ROM Manager, it goes to the white screen with the HTC in green then the screen/phone just shuts off becoming unresponsive until I take the battery out then in again. When I open ROM Manager, it gives me a pop-up that says "Recovery Failure" with three lines which say:
- Recovery mode is "broken". - ROM Manager doesn't reboot. - Other.
I tried to reload the clockwork recovery using ROM Manager and Unrevoked. Didn't seem to fix the issue. There is an official OTA update that I couldn't install due to the same issue. If you have any input as to how I should fix this issue
first of all let me just say that beta2 is superb i just have one problem with it whenever i'm in a call (reciving or dialing) the screen goes blank and i cant wake up the phone not the end call button and not the open (side) button the only ways i can wake it up is by getting another call or rebooting any way to work around it? i have tryed several screen on pogs from the market but no luck there without it i would use it everyday, its much much better then galaxo.
How to disable the baked-in power saver feature in some Samsung Android phones? the one that dims the screen, turns off the keyboard backlight, and doesn't let you use the camera once you hit 15%(or 10%) battery left? can't stand that, for my own needs anyway!
i figure it might be an edit to the kernel source code, or something like that. i just don't know where to do that. I know it can be done tho, because i remember having some ROMs on the Epic 4G that had that junk disabled. guess i'll also see if some of those old devs. are still around.
I flashed a rom then i went to flash gapps the bar was loading then it went off the screen and it didn't do anything.i waited about 5 mins and still nothing.i hit the power button and it shut off i go to turn it on and all there is a blue light where notifications show.black screen nothing else...
I recently rooted my Sprint Galaxy S3 (4.12) but decided unroot it yesterday using Odin 3.07. I flashed a stock rom from Team Epic, but ended up with a black screen with a blue led when I tried to turn it on. I have access to both download mode and stock recovery mode (no CWM or TWRP).
Is there a way to block or remove built in applications on an android phone. I want to limit what you can do on the phone e.g. only call, text, email and use one or two third party applications. Is it possible to do that without rooting the phone?
I have HDC Galaxy S4 exynos. I have a problem, when I call out the screen goes black, and I charge my battery full, but it very fast discharge or when I restart my phone, it show my battery percentage 10-20%.
II would like to flash my Samsung Galaxy 3 (right now Froyo) to use it with Kyrillos' ROM v7.5 under Mac OS Lion.
The only program capable of that I found (in this forum) is the Wineskin'ed version of Odin (v3 1.85). But that does not detect my phone in download mode and also has other buttons than the version Kyrillos speaks of in his manual (there you are asked to "select ops", while the Mac version of Odin only lets you select "PIT"s or chose a .tar-file for one of "BOOTLOADER", "PDA", "PHONE" and so on).
So, three questions:
1. How can I get that version of Odin to recognize my phone?
2. What do I have to select in that version of Odin after solving question 1?
3. Otherwise, are there alternatives to use (except a Windows computer or a virtual machine running Windows)?
