I was on 4.4.2, rooted, with safestrap. In a moment of stupidity I attempted to do a factory data reset from the main phone GUI. The phone powers on, says booting recovery in blue above the custom samsung logo, then powers off, and repeats this process enlessly. I have attempted to get into download mode, but to no avail thus far. What are my options, will a usb job (dongle) help, is there an sd card unbrick.img? What can I do?

I had the same issue a bit back. Pull out your battery and put it back in. Hold volume down and the home hard key while powering on device and continue to hold. Then proceed for download mode. Flash the .pit to restore your partitions should be able to get safe strap back on next boot and flash yourself a system to boot. Unless you never actually erased it (my case). I'll keep an eye on this thread for your progress.

The same standard options of auto reboot and f reset time. Obviously flash the .pit by the pit option.

I had a similar problem... tried to reboot into recovery & has a continual reboot to recovery.

- pulled the battery
- booted to Download Mode
- used ODIN to FLASH .pit - then rebooted

then my problem was completely fixed

Thanks

That post has the new recovery in it which resolves the issue you had. It won't happen again if you flash it. Not full NC4 but baseband and recovery and you will stay NC 2 otherwise. Highly recommended.
