I had 4.4.4 and decided I'd like to try out the L preview
So I downloaded the img from Google and flashed it via fastboot, worked perfectly fine but not as stable in apps as it was on kk.
So, I downloaded the latest factory image from the Google Developer Site, extracted it and ran the flash_all.bat
Seemed to flash ok, no errors, rebooted and started to boot but it only goes as far as the spinning boot logo. No further.
After leaving it a good hour or so I decided it clearly wasn't going to boot I went back into the bootloader and tried to get into stock recovery mode but after rebooting it just stays at the white Google logo..
So, I tried to flash TWRP via fastboot. Again no errors, successful flashed but just like before it sticks at the Google logo and never boots the recovery..
I even tried the "fastboot boot recovery.img" but then it just freezes on the bootloader.
I've also tried the 4.4.3 img.. same happens.
Now if I reflash the L Preview img via fastboot it sticks at the Google logo and didn't even reach the boot logo!
Sounds to me like the partitions have gotten corrupt? Though the imgs are flashing successfully without error so I don't think it's that..
But.. recovery partition is broken as I can't get into recovery at all, and it freezes if I try.
Anyone any idea what could have happened?
All I did was flash the KK factory image over L, just like I flashed L over KK and it worked fine.
All the guides online do the same thing to downgrade L to KK.
Is it bricked? Can it be recovered?
I still have bootloader access with fastboot..
Any help is greatly appreciated!
