[Q]Galaxy Nexus RAM has become read only?
The RAM of my Galaxy Nexus (14 months old) has become read only. It sounds stupid, but it's. A factory reset, doesn't delete any thing. A fastboot oem unlock does his job, but nothing is deleted
. No errors. While using it, any action is not saved (preferences settings, launchpad icons moved or trashed ...) No errors while writing, but changes are not saved
I want to reset my phone due it restarts after +/- 30 secs. from booting, in an infinite loop.
I also recovered to stock ROM. As you know, there are some steps, first is fastboot oem unlock. During process, it needs to be rebooted after flashing radio*.img and before updating image*.zip. The weird thing is on every reboot, oem becomes locked again
. This is a symptom of nothing is able to write that memory
Also a wipe in recovery mode, waits for just a few seconds and it's done
. It should took two minutes at least ... and nothing is deleted. All my data is still there.
Can a virus reside at recovery level? This phone has stock ROM and never was rooted. Just apps from market. Last app I installed (the day before nightmare was Fing, a network finding utility.
Next step is buying a new phone, but I haven't yet money for that at the moment
