Default Jelly Bean boot up problems

Ok everyone, there have been some issues with the Jelly Bean downloads, after a while, they brick themselves.
the md5's are correct, it is an issue that just happens without warning, and so far there isnt a method that we can tell has caused this. for those of you who have had this issue in this issue we are talking about:

1.) Boot to google logo: doesnt go past the logo.

2.) Restoring a nandroid:
boots to boot animation, and bootloops, no matter how many times you wipe data and cache.

3.) Installing another rom or the same rom: doesnt work, just boots to google logo and will not go past it.

so far the only method that seems to be working is restoring the factory image, unfortunately as of right now you will lose all pictures and saved progress on games. you need to make regular backups, and move *ALL* contents of your SD Card to your PC, and once you have successfully restored the 4.0.2 image, you can restore the contents of your sdcard then. from this point you can either reinstall the jellybean rom, or any of the 4.0.4 roms

here is the link with an easy to use method, you DO NOT NEED TO LOCK THE BOOTLOADER!

Default Help with Recovery from bootloop, etc

Ok, let's see. Been running AOKP for a long time. Loaded JD's v3 Jelly Bean yesterday, and it was running smooth, until a glitch in the GPS caused me to reboot my phone. Stuck in a bootloop. Tried it plugged in or not, to two different computers, and with two cables. Wiped everything in proper order, restored nandroid of AOKP. Still stuck in bootloop.

Tried to follow unbricking instructions in sticky thread, but while the Device Manager recognizes the phone just fine, when I get to the part where I tpye "adb reboot bootloader" at the command line, I get "device not found". I'm all out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just created a thread before I saw this, you may want to delete it or whatever, the conversation may be more productive here. I don't know. Have been trying to follow the guide you linked, but keep getting "device not found" at command line, despite it being recognized just fine in Device manager.

try putting the phone in bootloader menu, and then try the first command
and it will probably work, if not let me know

What's up VS?

It may or may not be relevant but I had a strange issue with my phone prior to JB. I had some water damage while camping (damn condensation in the tent LOL). My phone was still working when I woke up but during the next boot, I could not get past the first few seconds of the boot ani.

I tried everything. Wiping the phone completely, flashing custom ROMs, custom and stock kernels...nothing. tried flashing a rooted stock ROM and still nothing.

I thought I was hosed and after finding a way to get all of my data off of the internal SD (that was fun LOL), I used fast boot and took the phone back to full stock configuration. Haven't had a problem since. Not saying it's the same issue...but I thought it was damn strange.

Ub that problem is a headache! I lost all of my data, its a pain when it happens, I'm glad you were able to get yours back, I will admit I reinstalled jb again, and didn't have any issues, however my phone got very hot all of a sudden and I rebooted it, after almost 5 minutes it went to the boot animation, and boy was I pissed!

Ouch. Loosing all data is the one thing that would have killed me...especially pics and videos. The phone overheating is strange. I just wonder if JB is the issue...or if it is a deeper problem with the phone...it's just strange.

What I found is that there is no way to use a ADB from clockwork recovery and no way to pull the media folder (internal SD card). TWRP touch recovery does support ADB so I flashed it and then pulled all of my data to my computer. I had about 7 GB of pics/videos that I just couldn't lose.

Side note: JB is the shiznit!

Going to try Jellybean soon on my Gnex, but wanted to be prepared first. In the link that describes how to restore to factory image (in case I get stuck in a bootloop), do I have to download and install the entire Android SDK, or can I just install the tools from the MINI-SDK? I'm on a Mac, so I was assuming all I'd have to do is install the MINI-SDK and plug in my phone? Thanks for any clarification.

I rebooted my phone last night, and it got stuck at the Google logo. so I battery pulled and still the same thing. I then booted into recovery and wiped cache and dalvik cache. it then proceded to boot. I'm not sure if i got lucky, or for some reason it just booted. maybe this helps!

I left it there for a good 5 or 6 minutes the second time, but I'm fairly positive it wouldn't boot.

so you are using the TWRP and not the rom manager touch recovery? i may need to try that out, only because i do not want to have to go through that issue again.

you download the sdk, or the mini sdk, and make sure you move it to your C:\ and thats all you need to do

Wow, this is exactly what I'm going through right now. I planned on restoring factory images and this thread just confirms it.

I can't believe none of the nands will restore.

try this one, i had to use it.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kktwgx79ikighst/Samsung%20Fastboot.zip

to use it you have to go to the device manager. right click on computer > manage > device manager

you then have to plug the phone up with it in bootloader or usb debugging on.
unzip the file and remember where its at, then find the device under the manager should be adb interface or something similar, (i cant remember exactly) then right click on it and update driver. then browse for the files you unzipped. select the whole folder and not the contents inside it. hope this helps!!

Flashing back to the JB rom seems to be working for some (and oddly enough, keeping data in tact after wiping)

oh thank heaven. the drivers i installed worked. they just wouldn't work in bootloader. had to go into recovery, then adb.

what a PITA though lol. how come other people were able to flash back and forth between jellybeans and nandroids?

ok, did all the steps and restored from nandroid. thanks for help. i saved all my pics and a nandroid to my google drive prior to flashing jellybean. Also used Wug's toolkit. easier than typing in all the adb commands since i seem to get dexlysic at times.

can't wait for an offical or AOKP jellybean. it was pretty sweet. I'm not a big fan of apple, but my wife is, and Siri is still better than google now lol

Thanks for the heads up. I was getting the eternal boot loop for the third time after wiping everything and installing Jelly Bean V1.6. I did not want to restore my back up again .

So I tried your solution. Once again, eternal loop... At this point I said what the heck and formatted the system and wiped cache and dalvik cache. I installed from the SD card again and rebooted.

Its working like a charm! It actually came up faster than I expected and thought I was still install mode.

i swear i think the jellybean roms are going through some kind of withdrawal, they will act normal, fast and speedy, then they will just completely kill themselves if you try to install anything over top of them. its nuts!

I too got stuck at the google screen for about 15 min. I pressed and held the up vol, down vol, and power button for what seemed like 30 seconds. it rebooted and then has worked (even rebooted fine) since.

i think jellybean is an awkward ROM right now, its not made for our devices yet, so maybe thats why we have so many hard core issues with it

I've not been keeping up with this thread, but I wanted to share my experience. Perhaps this has already been said. I flashed a different JB (Droidth3ry). Something apparently happens when you flash JB with touch CWM. DON'T! I got stuck at the boot logo, then tried to cwm a recovery back and bootlooped. I did everything. I remember reading somewhere that there was a problem with touch recovery and JB. So..

I pushed Yoda recovery (see Scary Alien) in through bootloader mode to recovery as my recovery. Eventually, I reloaded the same JB and found everything as it should be. I hope this helps. DON'T USE TOUCH RECOVERY AND JB!

FYI, Yoda recovery is just the original UnstableApps touch recovery with Steven's (Yoda) mug as the background image.

I'm still puzzled as to what exactly is going on, but it feels and sounds at lot like when everyone tried to originally root with the insecure boot images on 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 and everyone boot looped--turns out it was because of differences between the toro and maguro versions of the boot.img. Wonder if that's what's the issue here...dunno...

everything i flash is with the cwm touch recovery, and i can boot past the google logo (7 times out of 10)
i think it is something with JB on our devices that causes the issues.

do yourself a favor and don't use touch cwm with JB. It's not me, it's a common theme with other jb flashers on other fora.

Default No probes with JB

JB smooth sailing running vicious V3. Took a long time on initial boot but has been flawless so far..running for 3 days. I used regular cwm to install

I used the touch recovery to flash jelly bean with no problems, ran it for a few days, went back to CM9 with touch recovery, no problems. Flashed jellybean again with touch recovery and still no problems. This is the first I'm hearing of problems with the touch recovery. Guess I should consider myself lucky I'll be playing the lottery later.

Same here, x 3, but I have heard of others having issues who are using touch recovery. But I don't think touch is to blame

Haven't played the lotto in ages thanks for the reminder!

it might be the rom downloaded or the device installing it. this jellybean business right now is really troubling, hopefully nothing too major comes out of it

In all fairness to the bean of jelly , it is, after all, a nandroid off a GSM device, made into a .zip, then ported/altered to work on the VZ version.

Wait till source drops and see how we fair at that time. I bet we'll still see issues, inevitable in the world of rooting, but I bet far far less than we're seeing now.

we will probably no longer see the boot issues, and then this thread can be unstuck, that is hopefully anyway

Sorry for the delayed response VS. No, I am not using TWRP. I only flashed it because it supports ADB and CMW on the Nexus does not. Once I restored my phone I reinstalled CMW touch. Keep in mind that my issue was when I was running an ICS ROM.

I've been running JB since it dropped. Using CMW touch recovery and have not had an issue with bootlooping or getting stuck at the boot animation or anything like that. I'm not saying that there are not issues...I'm just saying that after flashing multiple builds of multiple ROMs (all basically the same at this point), I have had zero issues.

One thing I have noticed is that "dirty flashing" ROM updates has led to sluggish performance. Wipe data, cache, dalvik, and system...runs like a champ. Using Jelly Belly 2.4 now with Faux's 019b6 kernel at 1480mhz and it doesn't feel the least bit beta to me.

Quick tip for those who don't know: If you wipe your device to load a new JB ROM and want to restore your Google now info, just restore the Voice Search app data with Titanium Backup. There is not a Google Now application. That gets better with continued use. I'd like to see Google remember this info and store it in the cloud but it just doesn't work that way...yet.

UBR,

Sorry, I missed seeing the above before...

Are you speaking of CWM not supporting adb access just while you're using a JB ROM or at all times?

(I've never had a problem with any of the custom recoveries (any device) not supporting adb).

I'm not even sure it could ever be a ROM-related issue because the kernel that a custom recovery uses is packed into the .img.

Lemme know--I'm curious about this .

Thanks!
