[Q] Any ideas on unbricking from a bad bootanimation?
I have one of those Chinese waterproof S09 W63 phones and today I installed Chainfire's live-dmesg and live-logcat onto the thing - I have this on my Motorola, my Samsung and my HP tablet, and have never had a problem with it; but it has sent this 4.2.2 device into an endless boot loop. I get the android turn on screen, then a black screen, then it reboots. And repeat until the battery dies.
adb detects the phone for about 1 second, before it reboots. So I can't get a shell onto the thing.
The only recovery I have on there is Android System Recovery 3e which in theory allows me to apply an update from the sdcard, but I have tried downloading a couple of flashable bootanimation's and they just say:
-- Install /sdcard ...
What I would like to do, is to delete /system/bin/bootanimation I think - At least I think that's what live-dmesg/logcat fiddles with.
Anyone have any bright ideas? I am starting to reach the end of my knowledge on this now.
