General :: Stuck In Recovery Boot Loop Midflash Upgrading To KitKat 4.4.2 On DTMO SGS3
Jan 6, 2014
My device details: SGS3 T999, rooted, running Jellybean 4.3 on a liquid smooth ROM. Its a year old and has been a solid performer up until now.
My device is stuck in a cycle where it gives a quick vibrate, then SGS3 splash screen with white letters, then black screen, then tiny blue "Recovery booting..." words in upper left of screen, then black screen with couple vibrations, and around and around it goes in the same repeating cycle.
Just before it started I had taken the following actions: Dumped the following 2 files onto my EXTSD card (cm-11-20131217-NIGHTLY-d2tmo.zip, gapps-kk-20131119.zip) from my PC, booted phone into recovery mode using TWRP, did a factory reset wipe (success), cache wipe (success), dalvik cache wipe (success), flashed the NIGHTLY file (failed), flashed the gapps file (failed). At this point I should have sought some support. Fool! I next did a reboot step still in recovery mode. Without the reboot happening a message came up stating Superuser permission had been broken (the best I can remember) and the option to have TWRP repair the permission. I opted "yes" to repair. Then the loop started that I can't escape.
I have pulled the battery multiple times, tried a regular boot up, tried a recovery boot up (up volume+power+home) dropping the home button after a few seconds. Nothing is working. Prior to the above steps I backed up everything on the device. So I have backups to use if it can be done. My best guess is that I failed to update my CyanogenMod or TWRP to the very latest versions and it caused this hang up.
So just an hour ago I got an OTA update for my LG L9 and of course installed it. It asked me to reboot and so I did, but it got stuck in the Clockworkmod recovery and when I try to reboot the phone it just boot loops in the recovery no matter what I do.
Tried wiping, formatting everything I possibly could, but still the same.Also installed cm10.1.2, but it boots every time in the recovery after like 2-3 seconds after the LG logo appeared. The same was on the stock rom.I was running the stock jb rom which was rooted and with cwm recovery installed.
I've rooted my samsung galaxy mega 6.3 GT-I9205 but I got stuck in a boot loop after trying to change my boot logo using a app called root tools. Before that everything with root worked fine.So I tried recovering the phone by going into recovery mode and wiping all of my data/factory reset and also wiping my cache. Both of these thing did not work.
So after that I went into download mode and tried to instal something I believe CWM. But now I can't even go into recovery mode because when I try, the phone says that it's going into recovery mode and then just reboots... and goes into a bootloop.
I've been running Kangerade since shortly after it came out... And loving it.. Yet today I saw my phone was rebooting - and waited (figured it over heated or some such..) and waited... And waited... That android boot image does stop being cute after a while... Crap.. Just cycling... Go into recovery... Umm.. No seriously.. Go into recovery.... Go on.... Nope. (apparently latest ROM MAnager screwed up CWmod..) So... Can't load my phone... Can't restore backup..
I was running Team Jellybeans V5 No Problem for the last little while (on my T959d)Everything worked great (minus a few glitches here and there of course)Saw the update for V6, downloaded, and flashed with CWM.
Did the wipes, (cache, dalvik and factory) did the wipes again after reboot,Now Im stuck in an infinite bootloop, (goes to samsung splash, then Devilkernel Splash, then CWM where it shows cannot mount e:/ (cycles too quick I can't see it..) then it just reboots and continues, I can't boot the phone into CWM recovery, can't boot into download mode, tried USB JIG, doesnt do anything,I can't adb my phone, can't ODIN..
I had been flashing roms with 4ext recovery since you can just use smartflash but after the last time I flashed a rom the rom wouldn't load and just kept rebooting the phone the the htc screen over and over again
i had a custom rom gingerbread and then i wanted to do a factory reset to go back to the stock room , instead this give me big problems. it is stuck on the lg screen and i try to go into recovery and alit says is do not pull out battery Formatting data , Formatting cache and Factory reset and this it goes right back into the lg screen where it gets stuck . My computer recongizes my phone but i dont know how to use adb commands thing like a pro . i have everything i need in the folder "backup" in the clockwordmod folder .
- 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 126.96.36.199 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 (#).
last night i rooted my phone and it was perfect but today i saw an video on youtube showing how to make status bar transperent like android 4.4 in that video he said it is a app runs on rooted device .the app name was framework some thing like that i opened that app and clicked on frame work it ask me to grant root access i gave it and clicked on install/update and first time it restarted after restarting it once again i opened that app and did the same process .then thhe output was successfully created new partition and restarted and got stuck on boot loop and i cannot do any thing when i connect it to pc for pc companion the pc is not recognising the device.
i tried to do the one click clock work mod on my samsung fascinate with the phoenix kernel on the root of the sd card. everything went succesful but whe it turned back on, it kept looping, first the samsung logo appeared than a samsung.com logo followed and just looped. i cant go to any menu... cant get into hard reset or anything else!!
My Droid Bionic is eating a big bowl of boot loops and i cant get out of it. im rooted and was trying to restore my phone as i had installed android 4.0.3. and during the process i accidentally removed safestrap and im stuck in the boot cycle. it shows the bionic boot logo then goes back to where it says : Droid" and then it repeats. i cant boot into recovery either.
i'm having with my new lg g2. I rooted my device and tried to install paranoid android and when i rebooted the device it just started repeatedly flashing the LG logo and will not start up. I cannot do a factory reset because it just reboots when it starts and i'm back to square one.
I installed Cyanogenmod 10.2 a few days ago, and has been working fine up until about an hour ago. My phone basically locked up while I was using Spotify, so I did a hard reboot, and got stuck in a boot loop. I tried to reboot a few times with the same results. I didnt have much on my phone, so I did the factory reset (using Teamwin recovery), but after that the phone was still stuck in the boot loop. After that, I tried the "Format Data" option.
After going through, It was still stuck in the boot loop. I've also tried to restore backups, but to no avail. I'm not super knowledgeable about the whole inner workings of rooting. I didn't want to do the advance wipe (includes internal storage, system, USB-OTG) for fear of really messing something up. If it completely restores to factory settings, i don't really care, I just dont want my phone to be completely unuseable.
I have an Android tablet (Diablotek D2-721, very cheap I know, but it serves its purpose) that is stuck in a boot loop. The real problem here is that this device apparently does not have any sort of recovery mode and being in a boot loop means it does not get recognized by ADB or any firmware flashing software.
I researched all day yesterday perusing forum after forum but almost every single solution requires booting into recovery.
i bought a android tv type device a few months ago now, but its now stuck in a boot loop. As the device was only cheep theres no way to work the device but with a remote. It does have 2 usb ports and a sd card slot. how to enter the device into dfu mode?
I was listening to music as I always do. I didn't realize it but the phone (Rezound) drained a bit faster than expected and died completely. So I went to to charge it, and left it overnight, off naturally, now when I power it on, its stuck on a boot loop.
It goes throught the startup animation, and once it gets to Sense, in the few seconds before the radios kick in and it finds the cell service, it reboots and starts all over again. Only way to get it to stop is pulling the battery out.
I started to do the hard reset, but when I got to the window for it, all I saw was Factory Reset (I guess they are the same) so I selected the option for reboot.
The light to charge does show its charging, and at one point, when I had it plugged in this morning, and managed to swipe the ring to get to my swipe lock screen, it was saying I was at 99%. then it goes all slow and then rebooted.
I used the factory wall charger, and its drained I think once or twice before, and I have done the FoxKat method of calibrating before this. Not sure if its a battery thing, since it will power up, or not.
I'm stock, non rooted, on GB.
I don't really want to do a factory reset as I'd like to have my messages saved. I did save them last week when I saw ICS was available, but i have some new since. I'm pretty sure my pictures and videos will be saved during the reset. I don't think that folder gets wiped. However I was going to try going to a VZW store to see about a new battery. The phone is new since June.
I'm not sure if this is considered a boot loop but when turned on, after the logo it turns into a blank screen.
Anyway, I was stupid enough to install 3D chainfire when it's not compatible (I neglected the description since it worked on my previous galaxy ace) ...
I've tried going to recovery mode to: - wipe data/factory reset - wipe cache partition (but shows error)
Not sure what else can I do anymore. Since Ace 3 is fairly new, it's quite hard to find a solution with google.. Also, I have zero knowledge about flashing ROM or of the sort..
Extra info: - My phone is Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 GT - S7275R - Rooted with a Chinese universal rooting program - When entering recovery mode, it shows "no command" for a few seconds before entering the menu.
Yesterday i tried updating my android to Ice Cream Sandwich following some tutorial i found but i missed a step and didn't downloaded Clockworkmod Recovery or made any backup , and i think that USB Debugging is off because my pc doesn't recognize the phone ... I tried going into Android system recovery and clearing data and cache , and i tried with odin mode by pressing volume down, home and power but i got stuck on downloading screen for 2 hours so i gave up ... Now only thing left on my sd card is ics aura rom..
My Samsung Galaxy Ace (S5830) running under a custom ROM The Ultimatum (I've been using this custom firmware for a few weeks now, with no real problems up until now), is bootlooping with no apparent reason. On a rare occasion, most apps on the phone stopped responding and would crash upon opening, and would require a restart before they worked again. Well this happened to me a few hours ago, so I decided to reboot my phone. After coming back to check my phone, I had found it was still booting. This has gone on for several hours now, and I've tried turning it on and off, removing batteries and everything. It's stuck in boot loop. I found this was odd, as I have had no dramas with the firmware I've been using. I have not made ANY recent changes to the phone whatsoever, so I can hardly believe it would be my fault.
how do I fix this without wiping all data and installing a clean ROM? I have a lot of stuff in the internal storage I can't afford to lose, and it's really important to me.
My brothers a7100 was running low on internal memory, he ignored the warning messages and kept playing games, the phone then started to slow down he turned it off and when he has turned it back on its stuck in a boot loop. I can put the phone into download mode.
I've been working on this phone from start to finish about 9 hours, over two days..I've Google just about every combination of words to do with the title and everything in between but nothing seems to come close to what i actually need to do as nothing works.
i have an LG Optimus 2x / p990, it had ICS on it but was far too slow to handle this, it needs something a bit less hardware intensive to run smoothly, so i went ahead an found cyanogenmod stable...7.2 i installed sdk after an hour of finding out how it works i finally got adb and fast boot working.
to cut a 9 hour story short, I've managed to get myself to the point where i wiped the phone of everything but CWM partitioned for ics via the AIO software but CWM will not let me install any ROM onto the phone. to be more precise it says i have installed CM 7.2 successfully! (I've tried this via the CWM via external SD card and side load) i reboot the phone it's as if I've never done a thing, no trace or suggestion I've even attempted it on the internal card... nothing
i'm at the point now where i'm quite happy to just have my phone back now and install ICS 404 but can't use the LG kdz install software as the pc doesn't see the phone as an LG p990 because it's recovery and i can only get it to come up as internal and external memory cards.
Can get my phone working will do, preferably the CM 7.2 if not back to ICS 404? i should have backed up but i had no idea it could be so complicated just to put an OS on a tiny computer. I've tried that exit recovery.zip thing and it did nothing :/
I bought it from Etotalk, so it came rooted, and with their custom version of the Lenovo Stock ROM and their custom version of CWM 5.5 installed.I tried formatting my SD card and then doing a factory data reset from within the operating system. (I was intending to install MIUI V5 after rebooting into recovery).
However, on rebooting, the device is now caught in an infinite boot loop, and I am not able to boot into recovery mode (by holding down power and both volume keys). It loads the initial splash screen, then shows a few seconds of the Android character and some whirring cogs before rebooting.
I am able to boot into Factory mode (power and volume up) or Meta mode (power and volume down). Factory mode has a number of options, but they are all in Chinese characters, which I am unfortunately not able to read.
I did notice that my SD card seemed to be write protected when I tried to format it in my computer and to copy on the new ROM - I solved this by putting it in a different phone and reformatting it. I wonder whether the factory reset process has write protected something it shouldn't have?
I've got the latest Android SDK Tools, MTK Droid Tools 2.4.8, SP Flash Tool 3.1312, some additional ADB drivers (120827 v3.7) that I'm not sure how to install, the latest MIUI V5 ROM (3.8.16), and the latest stock Lenovo ROM (S118 from Need A ROM, just in case I need it).
I have a stock arc s. which is having official ICS update. I tried to turn on bluetooth and the fone froze and then it restarted. It shows the sony logo and then xperia logo and then again goes back to the sony logo. it is not rooted.
I tried to force ics update to my phone and it is stuck on the big Motorola M screen. ive tried to flash the update just like you would a rom and it didn't work. it was my only option cause the guide i was following was for a pc and I own a mac so the utility provided wouldn't open on my computer. after it didn't work i tried a factory reset but that hasn't done anything. what can i do? the sd card wont mount on my comp so i cant put anything on that.
I have a Galaxy Nexus with the volume buttons spoilt (not functioning). It is rooted and running on AOKP's 4.4 rom. I accidentally installed the wrong kernel and while panicking, I wiped the data and davlik cache. Now, I am stuck in boot loop. Also, when I plug it into the computer, the phone is UNAUTHORIZED according to adb server.
Is there any way to authorize my phone without booting into the OS itself? or Is there a way to boot into bootloader/recovery without authorizing the phone and without using the physical buttons of the phone?
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 have a Lenovo A516 rooted. I deleted some Lenovo pre-installed files that made my phone unstable and now it's stuck in boot.. I can get into my Android System recovery but what can I do from here? Can I try loading a custom ROM or should I find Lenovos factory ROM and load that?
This is my first time using Android System Recovery.
