Help is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for your time. My situation: I have no custom mods, apps, et cetera. I am stuck in a boot loop. I entered recovery mode, cleared the cache, but did not do a factory reset. I get the "OMAP4440 Device Unplugged" error message. As well, I have spoken to a few techies, and have essentially be told that this error happens with the S3, and that there is nothing I can do. What I want: to retrieve my data files, media files, pictures, app data, app file, et cetera.
I have root access on my Samsung Galaxy S5. I have used Titanium Backup to remove bloatware and I have used Xposed framework to install various mods and tweaks. Two hours ago, I noticed that my phone was in Odin Mode and is downloading something. Is it the OTA update for Android Kitkat 4.4.4? My carrier is Sprint, it's still in Odin Mode and I'm not sure what's taking so long. Description: " ODIN MODE PRODUCT NAME: SM-G900P CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official SYSTEM STATUS: Official KNOX WARRANT VOID: 0x0 QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE (CSB) AP SWREV: S1, T1, A1, P1 UDC START Downloading... Do not turn off target!! "
From my understanding the ROM I would flash through clockwork mod recovery is just the operating system including the kernel and all of the applications. I see it like the windows installation disk, but in android form, correct me if I'm wrong. How would a phone be hardbricked through a ROM if it's just the operating system? Wouldn't you need to have an unsuccessful change to the bootloader or recovery partion to hardbrick? Like if windows messes up, I can still fix it as long as the bios is fine and I have an installation disk. Maybe I'm totally wrong on this but I don't know. I successfuly unlocked the bootloader today, it was pretty sketchy and I soft bricked a time or two (as expected) but it worked out. I'll probably just wait for my friend who excells at things like this to help me install CWM and CM7 on my atrix 4g.
