[Q] bootloop with no access to int.sd. no flash, no backup.
Ok Id like to start with the fact that I have searched for this on google and the forums. I did find a modded recovery img but still not much as far as why/what caused this. Heres the details:
decided today was the day I was gonna flash from stock 4.1.2 to PA 3.99. I revisited the thread to make sure on the development, and to see if there was any special instructions. Just to be safe I also stopped by the TWRP thread and found that update info as well and did what was needed in Goo Manager. So with updated recovery a fresh backup, I went forward with flashing. Wiped everything, flash PA then Gapps, then BMS well....no issue. Booted to system like normal setup google and went about my way tweaking with visual preferences. I then had to reboot, because PA_Gapps needed to be flashed in the PA udpater, so I let it do its thing....this is where things turn bad. Rebooting to recovery went fine as it flashed the new gapps....but after the reboot it just STAYED at the samsung logo "booped by BMS"....nothing else. left it for 10 mins, still nothing happened.
I then try to recover with my backup...nope i couldnt see anything in TWRP file manager. It said eMMC, sd-ext, sdcard, root, boot, data, cache, datadata and usb-otg were empty directories. I cant do anything right now. I've really never had to deal with odin or ADB and its lookin more and more like Im gonna have to go that method.
Does anyone have any insight on this issue? Thx
