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?
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?
-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.
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.
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 tried installing Tranquility and must have screwed something up because now my phone won't boot past the Motorola Logo. It's been sitting here like this for about 15min and I can't even boot into recovery by holding the power and home buttons. I don't know what else to do now. Idk if my phone is bricked but even if it is don't I need the SBF file to unbrick it and I can't find that file any where. I did a nand backup or whatever before doing any of this so hopefully that can help me. What should I do now?
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.
i have looked through the forums and can't really find what i'm looking for.If somebody knows that its posted some where that would be great! If not, how much can you delete of your sdcard without screwing up the phone? I have gone into root explorer and looked at all thats on it, some of it I don't even know why it's there so that makes me a little worried to delete.
So messing around with Froyo I noticed that if you go into application management there is an option to "Move to SDCard". The problem is that none of my apps allow me to move it to the sdcard. Does anyone know how to get this working?
I followed steps 1-3 in the Rooting & Romming for Beginners thread. Everything seemed to go well. I believe I am rooted, and have successfully flashed ClockworkMod Recovery onto my phone. Was in the process of trying to download a new ROM when I noticed that I kept getting error messages that my download directory didn't exist. Then tried to look into my sdcard directory, and it says "empty."
I lost all my applications which I guess is ok because I only paid for two. My questions is can I totally wipe my sdcard to get it back to stock as well? It has a bunch of stuff from my 2.1 before I wiped it.
I used the option in batching Titanium Backup to move apps and data to my sdcard to save some space. I've decided I want to move it back so that it's available when I press the Launcher. I know where it's stored on the sdcard and I have root explorer, but I'm just not sure which folder to move it back to in the first place. which folder houses all the apps that are currently available via the Launcher?
I replaced my original sdcard with a sandisk 16gb card. Everything went well until I started getting these blasted read on errors. Earlymon suggested a fix from another board but I don't have a stand alone card reader so I couldn't do it that way.
I was wondering if I just backed up all my stuff from my sdcard to my iMac and then just reformatted my sdcard via the phone, would that solve my problems?
I've got some code that downloads mp3s remotely over a streaming url connection... This all works fine but my problem is once the file is complete and I pull up the music app it's not there. A reboot of the phone and it now shows up... anyone know how to force this refresh to occur from without my code?
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?
This is to change the motorola logo that you see when you boot your phone to a custom image. This is separate from the boot animation seen afterwards.Tools/files you will need: 1) RSD Lite 2) droid sbf 3) SBFCodec 4) Photoshop (or paint, or whatever drawing program) 5) Hex editor (frhed is free and very easy to use) NOTE: I do not use sbf-recall because it complains about needing version 1.3, so I use SBFCodec instead.Steps: 1) Run SBFCodec and open up the sbf file. This will extract all the smg files and header files. 2) Using photoshop, create an image that is 480 pixels wide and 182 pixels tall. Each color should be assigned 8 bits (1 byte), or in paint, just make a 24 bit bmp file. Mirror the image, making the left become the right, and the right becoming the left. Save as a bmp file (photoshop method). 3) Using a hex editor, open up your image and erase the first 54 bytes of data. (and possibly the last 2 bytes of data if you used photoshop. the number of bytes remaining should be exactly 262,080) With the remaining data, reverse the bytes. (using frhed, the option is in the edit menu->Reverse bytes) 4) Using a hex editor, open up the CG42.smg file created in step 1 and erase all data except the last 64 bytes of data (these 64 bytes of data should be FF's in the file). Then paste in the remaining data from step 3 to the beginning of the file and save. Your final file should be exactly 262,144 bytes large. 5) Go back to the SBFCodec window and save (this creates the sbf) the sbf file and name it whatever you want. i.e. boot.sbf 6) Using RSD Lite, flash this sbf to your phone. It may take 5-10 minutes for the flashing to complete. (after the 10 minutes, it might say "failed", just click on the show device button once that happens and you'll have succeeded)You now have a stock phone with a custom boot image. Go ahead and root your phone and stuff. Sorry for the difficult instructions, this was the only approach I could think of to edit the boot logo.
I installed a custom bootlogo a while back, but my phone is giving me hardware trouble (keyboard and audio jack) so I will have to eventually have it replaced.I was wondering if anyone had the original "M" bootlogo, or could direct me to where I can find it.
i'm a long time reader but first time poster. I got my droid on launch day and have had no problems until today. I recently replaced Power Manager with Toggle Settings, but forgot to switch profiles while i was fishing so I ran out of battery really fast. I put it on the charger and it worked for a little, then i took it off before it was fully done and now it won't stay booted. It always goes back to the droid, then droid eye before the screen turns black and repeats. the green LED is blinking, and sometimes it shows the lock screen for a second, but just keeps trying to reboot.I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't seem to get the SD card out of the phone and I think that may be the problem because I was charging through my computer from a fully dead battery.
