Was posting in another thread (if you're reading this, sorry for hijacking your thread), but basically I have tried absolutely everything. The phone started running quite slowly last night, then when I rebooted it, it went into a boot loop and I seemingly can't get out of it.

The only thing I can access on the phone is the bootloader and fastboot. The phone is still S-On, the bootloader I had to unlock to try and replace the recovery with something that worked (I've tried many different versions of TWRP and CWM) however when I try to go into recovery it comes up with the message "Entering Recovery" and then reboots after about a minute and the loop starts all over again.

I've tried RUU but it isn't working, it brings back assorted errors, none of which have anything to do with flushing. I've made sure to erase the cache after flashing recovery, it hasn't helped. I can't erase system or data either for some reason. Please somebody help me, and thanks to all the members who were helping in the other thread, hopefully you'll pop over here to see if you can help me get this working again.

Please try this:

Download stock recovery: http://d-h.st/0Jy

fastboot flash recovery recovery_4.19.401.8.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader

Does the phone enter stock recovery? Try flashing a couple times and rebooting bootloader.

Hi, thanks for helping. I've done what you've said a few times now and it doesn't enter stock recovery unfortunately.

Can you try another thing. Flash stock recovery from the link above, and then Go into bootloader and then choose Factory Reset - Does this go in to stock recovery.

Nope, it just sends it straight back into the boot loop unfortunately

So I see you have flash 4.19.401.8 firmware as well which is why you are on the newer hboot, and that didn't work for you either.

Your device doesn't go into the stock recovery still. I will suggest to retry flashing 4.19.401.8 firmware again, and without any further steps try entering stock recovery.

There is nothing else that I can suggest.
