Default WARNING! Bootloop with latest update (8MB) rooted 4.4.2 !

Let this be a warning, the latest update put my phone in a reboot loop. After trying to apply the update clockwordmod would come up on restart, installation would fail, couldn't see why, too fast, the phone would start up and after 15-20 sec it would shutdown to start all over again.

Don't know what update does as I have a french phone and all update messages come in french. I saw that USB on the go was mentioned and some other bug fixes.


TO FIX:

Enter fastbood mode (VOL DOWN+POWER)

From the PC enter:

fastboot erase cache


Can someone more knowledgeable say why the update fails?

Regards

DONATE TO ME
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I was thinking that you need the stock recovery and not CWM or TWRP.

I had the same problem. You have to go back to latest stock rom before installing the update, and then rooting again. Worked fine for me.

See this guide for example : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219

Stock RECOVERY, KERNEL and NO changes in /system partition whatsoever (including root.)
With some experience there┤s nothing easier than flash stock ROM. Or do it thrice a day if you feel like that
Device: Moto G XT1032 bought from Amazon.de
Current ROM: German Retail 4.4.4
Previous ROMs: almost every stock firmware for XT1032 you can think of
Workflow: 1. read - 2. think - 3. try - 4. goto 1

Useful info: How to restore stock firmware
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219
When flashing OTA updates of stock firmwares:
1. root is not an obstacle 2. XPosed is not an obstacle 3. use stock recovery or Philz recovery only

This is the Philz recovery for the Samsung S4, I'd recommend you fix the link before we have people wondering what went wrong
