Location HELP, my S3 keeps rebooting after startup, cant wipe data/factory reset from CWM also

Hi,

Please give me some help guys,

After installing an app from a torrent (dont know if its related but it happened after installing and opening it) my phone keeps restarting every time, it boots up normally but after just about 5 seconds in the home screen it reboots again. I need to pull out battery to get it stop rebooting.

I've entered in CWM, but cant wipe data/factory reset, when I choose that option it appears "wipping /data" and it just reboots again. I cant also format /data from advanced options. Also, when /data is mounted I cant unmount it also from advanced options. Can wipe cache and dalvik cache but not data. Cant use the phone!

I have Omega v36 with superSU and CWM touch in it. How can I solve this?

Happened to me once also. Idk which app you installed but I had installed privacy guard and it resulted in a boot loop. The 5 seconds it gives you at start, try to go in settings then applications and uninstall the app which caused this. Took 15 minutes of me trying and I lucked out and uninstalled it. Phone been fine after that

I've tried, but as soon as I hit the "unninstall" the phone reboots. I guess trying to interact with something in /data makes it reboot.

App + torrent = probable malware .


Flash stock rom via Odin is the first step .

Try safe mode.

Safe mode will boot only stock apps, apps which were installed by ROM.

Well, things have gone worst, i've entered in safe mode and choose factory reset from settings, now the phone keeps rebooting, show the green robot of factory reset for 2 seconds and then reboots again. Now cant even get in the samsung logo neither in recovery or download mode.

Now, is there a solution for this? Have removed the battery for about 5 minuts but it stays the same.
