Stange issue : "Android" logo keeps looping at boot

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

It's very stange...

My Metal "profile":

* rooted

* Amonra

* Metalounay ROM from Vache

* 806 undervolted boot from Davidevinavil

* a2sd on ext2

This morning when I wanted to power up my metal, Android logo keeps looping and looping. Not rebooting, but "android" text animation is endless.

I think it was coming from battery. It was on load all morning, but still looping. By the way the battery led seems OK.

I try to go to Amonra and do a back-up before any action, backup started but after few points, display an error and asked to process thru adb.

I try to repair Ext2 part. Error message.

I try to reflash any ROM from Amonra Menu : error (directory can't be find)

All I try regarding SD from Amonra sends an error.

I can switch to Mass Storage, but PC shows a "F:" drive but no access possible.

I try to boot with SD removed : always looping...

I can't check SD right now.

Any idea? Should I try an hard reset? I hope SD content isn't damaged (titanium backup and else are on this one).

Thanks for any help!

You probably has corrupted yours SD card..

Could be died and caused the bootloop or could be after when you try to repair ext..

Now you have to put your SD in a card reader an look on your computer if is good.

If not is best you have another SD like the original one..

Put a custom rom using computer and a SD reader (metalounay or dmd), then put SD into phone and enter in recovery..

WIPE ALL

After wipe flash rom..

This would give phone working..

Then check your old SD using computer..

I think I'm on the worse scenario.

I plugged my sd on my computer and I get message "insert a disk in drive".

GetDataBack doesn't see my card (sd adapter)...

Clear start : KO

Wipe all : KO

Any chance if I reformat the SD card from liquid on same base than before an try to retore data from GetDataBack???

SD is definitively dead: PC can't see it when plugged with adapter (many tests).

I didn't do any special thing yesterday... An I don't know if SD crash caused the issue or if SD is damaged by something I did...

To recover:

I flash 1.100.06 in AMSS mode.

I flash 1.100.24

Root

Amonra Recovery

Metalounay 1.2 + 1.2.1

Restore from Titanium

Happily (...) I had a former backup by Titanium 15 days old...

I could have been worse...

Now I have to ask for SD refund...
