General :: Fastboot Flash Boot - Data Transfer Failure Unknown Error
Mar 1, 2013
I used insecure boot and root trying to root my phone, which was a huge mistake as i noticed a few minutes later since i cant startup anymore and only get into bootloader.
Now I'm trying to flash my stock rom back.
My CID is VODAP102 and my Version is 220.127.116.11 so i downloaded the rom and tried "fastboot flash boot boot.img" the result is:
sending 'boot' <8192 KB>...
FAILED <data transfer failure <Unknown error>>
finished. total time: 0.158s
I have an AT&T Atrix 4G and I wanted to imstall CM7.2.
I had the latest Atrix Android version on it. Then I followed the instruction at the cyanogemod wiki for the atrix. So I flashed the sbf (cyanodenmod wiki -> Motorola_Atrix_4G:_Full_Update_Guide).
The rsd lite flashing didn't succeed because the atrix rebooted and the programm couldn't switch into BP passtrougth, or so. At this point the device said something about 0x1000 no bootloader, but I could choose between rsd, fastboot and the other possibilities.
I booted into the fastboot mode and did an oem unlock. Now it says unlocked.
I booted again into the fastboot mode, and now it should be a simple
Code: fastboot flash recovery recover.img
But: Windows) it always says:
Code: sending 'recovery' (4824 KB)... OKAY [ 0.453s] writing 'recovery'... FAILED (status read failed (Too many links)) after that the device reboots and is in a boot loop
so i tried linux) The first time i tried the command everythings worked fine, but after reboot i chose.
Code: android recovery mode, but after a while (secs) the device rebooted.
so went to fastboot again, but now the device reboots after the sending command and then it says writing failed because of no device
I don't know if when I am using rsd lite to flash a complete image the phone reboots again and i have a hard brick.
I returned my perfect working non-defective EVO last week because my friend has a better deal for the monthly cost. So I joined his family plan and returned mine.
Unfortunately, my new EVO are having some problems. My new one has mild light leakage below the menu button. The volume control button is a bit loose, its workable, but just not as sturdy as on my previous EVO. Occasionally it has text messages delay, which never occur on my previous EVO, Im not sure if its related to Sprint or the phone itself. The battery is not as good as the previous one. Even though I can definitely get through the day with 15 hours for each charge, but I got 20+ hours on my previous EVO. Maybe itll get better once I charged it a few more cycle, its not the biggest concern for me. My biggest concern is actually my own stupid mistake! When I was altering the settings for my phone, I accidentally press and tried to active the Hotspot option. From there one, Ive been receiving the Data Call Failure Error 67 message randomly. Sometimes I just dismiss the message and its fine, sometimes I cant use the 3G after dismissing it. Ive tried to update the profile; turn off the phone; pull the battery. Sometimes it works, sometimes dont..
I don't need the hotspot function and didnt sign up and pay the $30 for it. I really dont need it, I just press it by accident ONCE! Is there any cure with this? I dont want to receive the error message randomly. And I don't want the hotsopt feature! I dont want to call Sprint yet before any other possible remedy, its kind of my last resort. Ive read from some other places that they just tell you to do a hard/soft reset and it is not a guarantee that itll work.
My Evo has no data connection all of a sudden and pops up with an error that says, "Data Call Failure Error Code 130. Network error. Sign in failed. Please wait a moment and try again, you may need to contact Sprint."
I didn't do anything weird to my phone or anything to have this happen all of a sudden. I've tried doing a battery pull several times and tried updating my profile, but nothing seems to work. Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone else experiencing such an error?
I am running the CTS on the Arm based phone. When I tried to run the Network related test cases.I am getting the above error in the "android.core.tests.luni.net" test package and due to this error around 179 test cases are getting failed.Please help me out.Is there any environment setting issue in the setting up the target.I have connected the target with the USB to my Fedora system. additionally target have the 3G Sim connected with It.
I have read other tutorials about the fastboot update command, but I do not understand how to make system.img from a zip Rom. How to install a Rom with fastboot? Cwm recovery can't read zip files for some reason.
i have a cheap alwinner a13 tablet (simmtronics xpad x720) from indian manufacturer. It is stuck at cwm recovery it countineously boots to cwm after restart.I have no backup stock rom. But i can sideload zip from adb or external ed. And not able to mount internal sd or wipe cache.
my nexus 5 is stuck in boot loop ( turning on and off by itself and can't get past the Google icon) and i can't access the boot loader for a reset. all system reset/ factory image guides require me to access the boot loader but the problem is that the phone won't stay in the boot loader because of the boot loop, it turns off as soon as i get into the boot loader.
I own a Allwinner A13 7 inch tablet, on which I installed the Cyanogen 10 mod (Due to restrictions I cannot place the link to the mod)
The problem is I probably installed the wrong touchscreen driver, so the tablet boots perfectly into the Mod but I can't do anything. Normally it would be no problem to just put back my backup, but I can't get it to boot into CWM.
In the first place I rebooted into CWM to instal the mod by adding the following command through the "terminal app" before rebooting,
I have tried holding down the volume buttons and power button several times the past three days and nothing. The device vibrates and nothing happens. If I continue to hold the buttons then it vibrates every 6-7 seconds. I also tried to get into fastboot using a toolkit in our development section with no luck. The toolkit says I'm in fastboot when connected, but nothing is on my screen.
At this point I am at a complete loss. If I can't get it to work is that a valid reason for replacement by Google?
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.
I deleted /system folder on my nexian cosmic journey. And now my nexian is stuck...
I try to using fastboot mode to flash recovery image, but my device seems not detected. I already installed the android composite driver, but when i use "fastboot devices" command, it shows (?) So how the heck to get my nexian back to normal?..
Or perhaps, if i just be able to put back the /system folder to its place again, it would be more easy to recover it... But how access the root when phone is like that?
Sometime in the last couple days i've not been able to install any apps from the market or amazon. They show they are downloading just fine, but Installation always fails. I click on the details and get the "unknown reason -110 " The only thing I've done different is buy aThrive tablet and log into all my gmail and market stuff.
I tried to root my One X by doing the on first for not losing my data and installing BusyBox and SuperSU. But my problem is, when I ejected my USB from the phone all these weird data appeared on the top-right side of my screen.. and it keeps changing.
i recently installed open etna which was awesome (great job guys) But then stupidly i plugged it into my computer and LG update popped up saying their was an update stupidly i clicked yes. God knows what i was thinking. now my phone wont get past the default android loading screen. I have left it on for days and the animation just keeps replaying over and over again. I can't access fasboot either to re-flash it back to open etna or whatever.The only thing i can get access to is emergency mode is there anyway i can get my phone working again?
I ran into this with my corporate e-mail this week on a Google I/O Evo. The setup of my exchange account was painless. Just need to plug-in my e-mail, password and a device password. Exchange syncing works fine until you turn off your phone. When you power the phone back on, it boots up to the point where the Sprint intro video plays. At that point, according to Sprint tech support, the Exchange syncing hits a snag and causes the phone to restart indefinitely playing that same loud, annoying intro video over and over. The only workaround was to open up the bootloader (power+volume down on power up) and erase all my data. I went through a simple setup and a simple setup + exchange again to confirm that it was indeed the Exchange account that introduced the problem.
Imagine the situation that Any data plan is not activated and as soon as u enable the data connection hundereds of thing in android want to connect to internet and when u disable the data connection again . Ur money is deducted.
Now u will ask me if i dont have a data plan why i enable the data connection.?
So here is the thing I want the data connection to be enabled so that i can open free site like facebook on Opera Mini.
So is there any way so that i can enable the data connection but my phone does not connect to internet to itself but i control which app connects. In my case opera mini.
My Problem: Was using the HTC Desire bought in India. I rooted with Unrevoked 3.21, S-OFF with Alpharev.
I was thinking of taking my phone to HTC to show an LED burnin problem, and tried to unroot by flashing the RUU for Asia_India: RUU_Bravo_hTC_Asia_India_1.21.720.4_Radio_32.36.00 .28U_4.06.00.02_2_release_127705_signed. I thought that was the correct RUU.
I booted my phone in Fastboot, applied the RUU, and it rebooted my phone into RUU. Then it flashed an error message saying the RUU version was incorrect. Being the idiot that I am, I rebooted the phone..And got stuck!
The phone does not boot. On pressing Vol- and Power button, it vibrates, and then nothing. Screen is blank. It wont boot into Fastboot, Recovery or the ROM. If I connect it to USB and do the Vol- and Poweron, it detects my device as an Android 1.0 device.
I have tried the following: 1. Went to Android SDK, tried flashing Clockworkmod recovery image with the command: Code:........
So after being dumb and installing the 2.1 leak I finally got root! Yay! But now of course my trackball is acting up really badly and I want to unroot to try to get it swapped out at Verizon. I've followed jcase's instructions successfully up to the fastboot command section. I'm getting and error "Failed (remote: not allowed)". Obviously I am in fastboot mode on my phone. Phone's screen shows PB00100 XC SHIP S-ON HBOOT-1.49.0000 (pb0010000) MICROP-0111 TOUCH PANEL-MELFAS_45_17 RADIO-18.104.22.168.09 Feb 8 2010,00:08:56 FASTBOOT USB <VOL DOWN> HBoot Mode I am still able to access Anon's Recovery. Any thoughts?
I have an Orange branded Hero and just tried to upgrade from build 22.214.171.124 (Firmware 1.5) to ROM Version:126.96.36.199 as I believe this is necessary in order to get the latest version of Android (2.1). Right at the start of the upgrade process I get an error message saying
Error  unknown error. The ROM Update Utility cannot update your Android phone. Please get the correct ROM Update Utility and try again. I rang Orange and they couldn't help. I managed to speak to someone who understood the information I was telling him but he was not able to help other than do a Google search whilst I was on the phone to him. The suggestion was that the internal phone storage is insufficient to handle the 103MB image size of the upgrade file. I have now deleted all my apps (after backing them up) and have 123MB internal phone storage available space which should easily be enough but I'm still getting the error.
