Hello everyone.

Im trying to factory reset my MDK Verizon S4 coming from Hyperdrive 16. Every time i try to factory reset my phone reboots back into the rom. I'm able to wipe cache from the recovery. But it just reboots every time i try to wipe data and factory reset. Anyone have experience with this?

Have you tried updating to Philz latest? I have no problems at all with that one.

You're saying your phone reboots even when you're trying this from within Phil right? Not just the option from within the ROM....

If it doesn't get any better you may just want to use the No Wipe Odin file. Something could have gotten corrupt or something along the way.

Another thing to try maybe is flash the latest TWRP using Flashify and see if that let's you do it..

ok just hitting factory reset inside of Philz will of course just reset your operating system that is on there, which will be Hyper 16. If doing a factory reset to install a new ROM within Philz it will wipe everything out of there including the backup TW (HD16) makes of itself. my understanding is TW makes a copy of itself on install so when it does factory reset it reverts back to that.

Exactly that, I hit Wipe/Factory Reset. It starts attempts to start the process, freezes then reboots back into the ROM. Ill probably just do the no wipe Odin file. Thanks
