Hey, guys. I posted here a while back that I've been having some major problems with my phone. It randomly reboots, does not properly wipe in recovery, will not properly install ROM's or recovery updates.

I think it all stems from me seeming to remember deleting a lost+found file that I thought was a dupe. Anyway, I assume that restoring the phone to factory is the only way to fix it, but I'm hoping somebody has another idea because I use a mac and Idk how to root it again if I have to do that.

Thank you for any help or suggestions.

I had the same issue until I formatted my internal storage. Make sure you back up everything from your internal storage first.

So all I need to do is a wipe? I won't actually have to lose root?

Not wipe. Format internal SD card. I think its from the advanced wipe settings. You will have to type the word "yes" to confirm

And again, this may not fix your problem. But it fixed mine

Okay, kool. I'll give it a shot. I spent most of the morning backing up my phone. It's kind of scary. Lol
