Question [Q] Caught in boot screen

Hello,

I am running Slim Bean 4.1.1 on my Galaxy S2 for almost one year now. I never had any bigger issues with this rom until yesterday. My battery died so I plugged the charging device in and re-started the phone but the booting animation won't go away. I am caught...I can still get into the recovery but that's it.

Any ideas how to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance

Let the battery charge a bit until you boot it up, then see if you can boot into the rom. If you can't, boot into recovery and wipe regular cache and dalvik.

Best practice is to never let your battery die - these older devices (and some new ones as well) sometimes don't respond well to a complete discharge.

Thanks!! I tried wipe cache and dalvik. Now I was stuck in the "android is upgrading starting apps" loop. So I just decided to do a full wipe and re-install everything...

If you're going to do a full wipe why not just upgrade to KK? The JB Slim isn't supported anymore, but @cyril279 has a few options for you, should you chose that route:

SlimSaber: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2772468
SlimKat: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2760074

That makes sense. I just upgrade to SlimSaber...and I love it. This morning I was soo p*ssed because of this whole thing but sometimes it just needs an event like this to try out new things

Thanks again!
