    HEy everyone :)

    a couple of days ago i was changing my boot animation and sound, everything went fine up until i changed it then i got into a infinite boot loop, i searched the forums for awhile and found this:

    Stuck in infinte boot loop

    1) i installed sdk and adb
    2) went into command prompt
    3) type
    C:\users\yourusername/cd\
    C:\> cd androidsdk/platform-tools/
    C:\ androidsdk/platform-tools> adb devices
    and im stuck at "list of devices"
    (blank)

    but i cant seem to get my device to show up in adb as a device, anyway i wanted some help with this and possible help others who are in the same position i am who have ****edddd up their phone doing this lol

    I just wanna switch my boot animation with the stock animation that i know is okay and isnt corrupted

    I know i used adb to root my phone from androidinvasion so i can actually possibly unbrick my phone

    anyway i wanted know if anyone knew any common commands that could help

    might want to try it a few times again, that have solve others issue's like that, but for some same problem still exist,also when the phone is booting up does it show any animation or just the lg, if it doesn't show the animation on the one you install, take it back to metro, but if it does show a portion of it, metro will not warranty it. Please for future refs be careful on installing and un installing apps that you are not aware of, but i hope your phone will be back to normall after trying to factory reset it, keep us updated.:confused:

    There is a post in the "all things root" section that explains all about it. I would link you too it but I am on the phandroid app.

    It should be one of the top 5 posts

    I'm just wondering exactly what you told Metro about your phone. Mine is doing the same thing. A boot screen from Absolute System Tools is stuck on loop. I try and boot into recovery, tell it to delete everything and restart but it doesn't do anything.

    And also, what exactly would you push through ADB?? I can't even get my computer to realize I have a phone plugged in to it. It won't find the drivers anymore either. It did once boot all the way back to the actual phone with all of the metro apps and everything unrooted but said I didn't have network coverage so I restarted and it's stuck in loop boot again.

    Any help would be amazing. I'm completely lost and really bummed out :/ Thanks guys!

    I'm so lost and sad. A boot screen from Absolute System Tools is stuck on loop. I try and boot into recovery, tell it to delete everything and restart but it doesn't do anything.

    I would be willing to try ADB, but I don't know what to push to fix this problem. I can't even get my computer to realize I have a phone plugged in to it. It won't find the drivers anymore either. It did once boot all the way back to the actual phone with all of the metro apps and everything unrooted but said I didn't have network coverage so I restarted and it's stuck in loop boot again.

    Theres a couple other boot animation boot loop/brick posts go check those out.


    Also people reeeaally need to just stop playing with the boot animations. I think literally everyone that has attempted to change the boot animation has screwed up the phone rebooting properly. People really need to pump the brakes and do MINOR things since we have no stock recovery, CWR or roms.
