[Q] Problems with TWRP 2.6.3?
So I totally nuked my phone this weekend. T-mobile is mailing me a new SGH-T989 because of my warranty so it's mostly good.
I wanted to update to the latest TWRP so I could flash a 4.3 ROM (Simbean) . I Odined in and flashed TWRP 2.6.3 because goo.im wasn't working. I was able to flash the Slimbean ROM but on first reboot I couldn't make it past the Samsung screen.
I can get back into TWRP but everything fails. - typical process. "Fix permissions- Success", then "Full wipe - Success" then "Fix permissions (cause I'm trying anything at this point)- Failed"
In TWRP Restoring backups "Failed" Flashing new image "Failed" In between I've tried erasing everything but the MicroSD card and starting fresh but Noting will install.
I've reflashed TWRP through ODIN but same issue. A couple of times I've got a restore to work and boot up but if the phone sleeps it won't wake up again. I can only get back to TWRP.
I tried flashing back to stock but I hang the pink T-mobile screen.
Eventually I think I mashed the power button and the phone wouldn't even boot.
So I'm getting a new one. I want to root it and replace the stock rom of course but.... Is TWRP 2.6.3 screwed for anyone else? I've heard rumors...Is CWM still a viable choice for modern JB ROMS?
