[Q] Reboot loop issue around 1-minute in any mode. Is there a fix?
This is a year-old Galaxy S3 i9300 (Intl) which came with a stock 4.something, which I replaced after a couple of months with CM10. After that, I've tried plenty of different ROMs, but I mostly stuck with CM. There were often problems with some apps FCing and plenty of random reboots, but it was still mostly usable. Until recently, that is.
After a few more updates with the more recent CM11 builds, the phone just went into this boot loop that seems to trigger around the 1 minute mark regardless of what mode the phone is in. In most cases it's the CM11 boot animation, but even if I manage to get it into recovery or download mode, it still reboots. As a result, I'm unable to perform any repair via recovery (no fix permissions or wipe) and I can't get it to stay in download mode to send a different image.
Is this a hardware issue or something that can be fixed via software?
