I've had my JiaYu G3 for less than 24 hours and I'm in trouble already! Tried rooting with the instructions In the first post.
Intended to root the phone, install CWM, backup the phone, and wait until there was a official stable JB. Everything went as described in the rooting process until the last step;
c:\User\your user name here>cd \
c:\>cd bin4ry v17 root
c:\bin4ry v17 root>adb \stuff
"hit enter" and a lot of text will scroll past which means you are in the right directory.
c:\bin4ry v17 root>adb devices
"hit enter" daemon will start and numbers and letters will appear with the word "device" at the end. If that happens we are good to go.
c:\bin4ry v17 root>runme
"hit enter" writing turns green.
c:\bin4ry v17 root>1
"hit enter" a screen will appear on phone select restore my data no password needed. Leave phone it will reboot twice i think it is and that's you done.
After hitting "1" for "normal" the phone rebooted one time and then froze with the JaiYu logo displayed. Now it won't power off and my laptop no longer detects it through the usb port. I thought I was pretty safe doing this, since there seems to be many who have successfully done this before me, but here I am with a 1 day old JiaYu G3 that seems to be DEAD.
I've tried an extended (45 sec) of the power, extended press of vol+/power, but nothing seems to effect it. It just sits there with the JiaYu logo displayed, MOCKING me!
I really need some help here PLEASE!
EDIT: IT's ALIVE! All I had to do was momentarily remove the battery and power it back on.
