Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a YP-G70 US version, was running CWM with SlimKat 4.4.2 and everything was going great. I went to power it on today and it seemed like it wouldn't respond to anything. I can get it into "download" mode, and Odin sees it. I've installed the kernel (both DD_01142012.tar and YP-G70-Kernel-r14.tar) about a dozen times and it always succeeds and reboots, then sits at the Samsung loading screen. Holding the power button for 8-10 seconds powers the unit off.

I can't get into recovery mode at all, just download mode. Another thing to note, when I plug it into usb power, it turns on to show the battery, as soon as the battery appears the bottom three buttons light up and it reboots. The power button will work to turn the device off, but not on. For instance, if I'm in download mode, or the battery screen is appearing, holding the power button will turn it off.

Any ideas what's going on or what I can try?

Thanks!

I've made a little progress. If I let the device charge until it's full, then the power button will boot once into recovery. Now when I try to install the rom I get the following error;

E:Error in /sdcard/Slim-venturi-4.4.2.build.2.5.RC1-unofficial-20140129-1514.zip
(Status 0)
Installation Aborted.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Ok, sorry this is so crazy. After formatting the /system it looks like the rom finally installed without errors.

I still have the strange battery reboot issue when it's powered off and plugged in. If anyone knows how to fix that I'd love to know how.

Thanks!

Did you flash a ROM after wiping the system? That's why it's bootlooping.

I finally got slimkat back on it, but it won't startup, it just shows the slimkat logo and sits there forever.

The battery issue still exists. I have another YP-G70 and I've done all the same installations on it and it's working great. I'm not sure why this one is so wonky.

Thanks again for the assistance.

I flashed the rom again and now it booted into slimkat. The battery still seems to not know what's going on. I know in one of the original boot roms I saw something about erasing the battery stats. Would that help get the battery reading working again? or anything I can do inside Slimkat to fix that?

Thanks!

The bootloop while the device is off and charging is a known problem.

Thanks for the response. I left the device off and eventually it charged and many of the issues while running went away, however the battery bootloop is still happening. Good to know it's a known issue.
