You are getting there. I know how nerve wracking it can be.

How would I check for damaged components? I ordered 2 ANKER batteries so I should be able to test to see when they get here.

Some things you can't know until you know. What is broken is sometimes one of them.

Did the phone get dropped or take a bath? Some other misadventure immediately prior to the device getting squirrely?

No nothing like that. I take really good care of my devices since I always sell them. Screen protector and UAG case on the phone.

Which recovery again and were you using something to interface with it (eg. Rom manager)? Were you changing android versions?

Man. I just got the e: error /data/data/blahblahblah for the second time. I attempted to flash a kernel and when I went to wipe cache and dalvik it failed with the e: error message.

Again it was in TWRP 2.7.0.1 going from KoT to JMX2 and I ended up not being able to recover via a BMD1. I hit it with UVALJ1 2x, then factory reset, and booted up. After that I Odined TWRP and restored from a backup. Took about 20 min all told. Then it was just updating apps and restoring SMS/MMS. Only bit I messed up on was remembering that the modem on ALJ1 is most definitely NOT LTE capable. That was simple and painless to remedy.

YMMV

Red face Yes, it Lives !

Got My new Anker Batteries today and low and behold the phone booted up. Im charging it know. SO I guess it was a bad battery that affected the boot up. Going to do some diagnostics and check the phone out lol. The ROM was rooted so i used Goo Manager to flash TWRP. Was wondering since I saw you posted about TWRP, is TWRP having problems right now ? Should I use a different Recovery ?

Hopefully all the data and partitions functions well since they were giving me errors before. Maybe that is due to the battery as well. What do you think ?

Awesome!

I'd say that when we are doing things in unintended (by Samsung) ways that things like battery condition and voltage matter greatly. The battery likely didn't allow the recovery/device/ROM to work properly.

I use twrp. I like twrp. I have a had two file system corruptions that had three things in common: 1) Me, 2) my phone, and 3) TWRP. I don't know enough about it to say one way or the other. I haven't heard anything about this involving other recoveries. Then again TWRP is the most common recovery for our device and will see more exposure to problems.

I have a hunch. A gut feeling. That's all. I still use TWRP though.
