    My phone is doing a loop thing on boot up. Samsung galaxy s 2 (t-mobile).
    I did a factory reset on it and then it started the loop. flashes the samsung then it says the logo with galaxy s 2, then it has the android guy flat on his back and it say verifying internal MMC block. checksum configuration -> check (0) no need checksum configruation already executed.
    #manual mode#

    What does this mean?? I am at a total loss.

    can anyone help me please?

    Welcome to the forum Huntzmax :hello:

    I did some looking around for that error and it may be that your internal storage has failed. If you have a warranty, you probably need to get it replaced.

    The only thing I can suggest trying is using Odin to install the stock rom. I have my doubts it will work, but you could still try it.

    I remember reading somewhere at one point, depending what firmware your on, there was a emmc bug that bricks the s2 during a factory reset. Can't remember the exact details (for non root users)

    I'd try Atma's advice with odin, if that doesn't work I'd definitely have it replaced.

    Yeah, I remember the brick bug now. Caused by flashing a certain kernel on a phone with the defective EMMC chip from what I understand.

    From what I read, I think this emmc bug, even if you factory reset being a non root user, still a brick.

    Was up on sammy's support s2 site.
