[Q] Stuck in Bootloop after latest OTA Update - what now?
this morning I got offered a new OTA update for my Note 10.1.
Since I've never fiddled around with the device (no root, no custom rom and so on) this never was a big deal for me, so I just installed it as usual.
After the update my device is stuck in a bootloop.
What I tried so far:
Connecting to KIES - failed
Recovery Mode -> Cache Wipe - failed
Recovery Mode -> Factory Reset - partly failed
Recovery Mode -> Factory Reset + Cache Wipe - partly failed
What I mean by partly failed is the following:
The device boots as normal (with factory settings) but as soon as I plug it in to KIES to sync my contacts it crashes and goes to bootloop again.
Now to the weird thing:
When I'm in recovery mode I get an error which (I suppose, at least) shouldn't be there:
Apllied the CSC-code : DBT
did not match sized '/system/csc/common/system/wallpaper/lockscreen_default_wallpaper.jpg' (No data available)
This error points to the lockscreen wallpaper?! And the REAL weird thing: While in bootloop sometimes the device gets through to my wallpaper, which then is the "old" wallpaper I had BEFORE the reset. How can that wallpaper still be there after I did a factory reset? There is no SD card in my device.
Is there any way to get back to a working version? I guess it botched up the OTA-update and now has a broken firmware or something like that...
I have no experience in Android modding/flashing whatsoever, but I'm pursuing my masters degree in Information Systems right now, so I'm not a total noob for what it's worth!
P.S.: I don't care about rescuing any data, there was nothing important which is not already backup'd on the tab... I just don't want to have a 500$ paperweight laying around ^^
Thanks in advance for any help!
