I hope one of you good people here can help me because I am at my wits end with my phone which seems to be caught in a constant bootload loop. I’ll try and keep it brief.
I am not a complete noobie and have rooted my device and installed several roms without having any issues. My phone had been running very slow and malfunctioning so I decided to flash the latest version of Cyanogenmod. I had TWRP and CWM installed as recovery options. I backed up my device using TWRP and when I had done so it unexpectedly shut the phone down and entered into CWM recovery. I was perplexed by this as I had never used TWRP before and was only using it for the initial backup before I went and performed a reset.
Once booted into recovery I followed the normal method of flashing the rom from the zip file after having reset all data and cleared the delvik cache. There were one or two issues I can’t quite recall but the message said install complete so I restarted the phone expecting it to boot into the rom. Instead it keeps on going back into the bootloader, no matter how many times I have tried it and with different roms it always goes back into recovery.
I tried using the adb sideload method but the screen just hung on installing, after literally being left on all night so clearly something wrong. I also used this method to try and flash the stock firmware but again no success. Same result when I tried flashing it from the sd card.
I formatted the sd card prior to trying this last step as I heard this sometimes could be an issue. However the result was still the same.
I have looked extensively online to try and find a solution to this problem but it appears I have pretty much exhausted every option. Surely the device can not be “bricked” if it is able to boot into recovery?
Is it something really simple and obvious I am missing? I am hoping somebody can point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance.
