    Hi!

    I got a message calling for the KitKat-Update. Didn't think much and just accepted, let it run for a bit. The tablet shut down, and started updating. After a while, there was an error that it was unsuccessful (sorry, don't remember the exact wording). Nothing else was going on, so I restarted the tablet. Now it is just stuck for ever on what I'm guessing is a startup screen. I looks like a few colored blobs dancing around in the center of the screen. Looks like a bootloop to me...

    I'm guessing this is not part of the update-procedure?

    I don't want to wipe all my data if I can somehow avoid it as I still have non-backuped files on there.

    Any suggestions? =(

    Thanks!

    PS: My tablet's bootloader is unlocked, but it's not rooted.

    The colored blobs are the new start up screen, they can take a while the first time to boot up but it should eventually go to a screen showing optimizing apps then boot fully to the launcher............

    Thanks
    I had it running all night, still on the blob screen. Also, I cannot access the device from (linux) terminal. Even a factory reset did nothing. Bringing it back today...

    I accepted the update also. Not sure I know about the blob screen, but once my boots I end up with the little green android robot laying down on his side, stomach open with something (dont recall here) coming out and the words error. system reset didnt help. I didnt want to to factory reset either, not yet. was thinking about connecting up to wugfresh as that is how I rooted, but not sure if it will help.

    was actually hoping to find some solutions online today.
