[Q] Confused as to what bootloop is...
I have this behavior in my u20i phone that the phone will not boot. When i connect it to my PC, the PC detects the phone momentarily for around 5 seconds and then it disconnects and this will continue until i disconnect it. Does this mean my phone is bricked? Is this what a bootloop is? I read many threads on this forum, and for whoever was facing the problem of bootloop, he was atleast getting SE logo.
Now coming to my problem, i used s1tool to get the present details of my phone and it shows the following:
RUNNING S1_EROM VER "R8A029"
SOFTWARE AID: 0001
LOADER AID: 0001
FLASH ID: "0020/00BC"
LOADER VERSION: "R4A045"
MODEL (from GDFS): U20i
SOFTWARE VERSION: 1235-3411_2.1.1.A.0.6
CUSTOM VERSION: 1238-7170_R4B
SEMC SIMLOCK CERTIFICATE
The loader version tells me that the bootloader is not unlocked. Tried using SEUS update service to fix my phone back, but after completion, i still am stuck with this boot-looping. Any other suggestions? Any more information required to debug my problem? I had installed a custom rom which was working well (MiniCM7Pro_V21) until i restarted my phone which is when i got this problem. (had got a problem like this before but using SEUS had worked that time)
I can enter the flashmode of the phone atleast but thats it (this gives me some glimmer of hope
My last resort will be to give my phone to the SE service guys but i wanna know what the problem is before i give it to them.
