I can boot into twrp and go Advanced, Adb sideload, but then it doesn't seem to 'complete', and I can't find the device from my computer, despite it showing in fastboot when I am in that mode; it does not in adb.
I know I can wipe to factory image, will that COMPLETELY wipe my device? As in, all my downloaded files, titanium backup etc.? Or just /data? I'd like to backup my internal sdcard if at all possible.
To sum up, wiped /system, but no .zip currently on device. Can I remedy this without losing pictures/titanium backup?
A factory reset wipes the data and cache, any changes made to the system will still be there after a factory reset. Flashing the complete factory image will also wipe everything. The userdata.img inside the factory image is what wipes everything. You could flash all the images inside the factory image separately except for the userdata image and your data will stay intact.
If you can see it in fastboot just fastboot flash the system.img and the boot.img. Get the "correct" system.img and boot.img (you have to extract the images from a factory image
) and put them inside the platform-tools folder of the sdk, manually put your device in fastboot, plug it in to the computer, shift-right click from inside the platform-tools folder, choose "Open command window here," type fastboot devices
and you should see your device, type fastboot flash boot boot.img
, hit enter then fastboot flash system system.img
hit enter. Type fastboot reboot
hit enter and your device should reboot normally! All of your data will still be intact. This might be useful 15 seconds ADB Installer v1.3
, I personally have the full sdk installed but I did try the ADB installer on my brother's laptop a few months ago.
