After any of those things happen, the phone will no longer boot. You have to go into recovery (I use twrp) and not only factory reset, I have to wipe the partition, then reboot into recovery a second time, then reinstall the rom. It does not matter what rom is on the phone this happens every time.
As the phone has had a small crack on the screen for eleven months I filed an insurance claim and have the replacement device but it has nf3 on it which I hear is extremely difficult if not impossible to root.
Prior to the software failure at every reboot I was quite happy with my loki phone and hate to give it up but I can't think of how to fix the crash on reboot requiring reformat and reinstall issue. Any ideas?
