For those with an SCH-R970 from USC stuck on bootloop
I bought a prototype SGS4 SCH-R970 USCellular on ebay a couple weeks ago, flashed a rooted rom, messed up, nandroid wouldnt work, bricked phone
My phone had been stuck in the samsung logo when starting up the boot sequence, after weeks of reading and searching all the forums I could find, I was able to get it to work. Many phone shops and fellow android developers I know said it was bricked and to give up on it but here's how I got it out of brickmode
I found this epic thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2295557
First: I cleared the cache and dalvik as usual.
Second: I Flashed a stock cricket system and kernel "CricketME4_Unrooted_System-Kernel" google it.
Third: Flashed that loki zip found on the thread above.
Fourth: Cleared caches again and rebooted.
Edit: I was able to fix wifi loading CM http://get.cm/?device=jflteusc
still working on which one has every single feature working, or at least as many as possible xD
Camera does not seem to focus at the moment, I think it might be due to the rom, which is meant to be used with SCH-R970C
Thats it! Took a couple mins to boot up completely but it got it out of brickmode, if anyone knows or has a stock metropcs rom let me know!
I'll check this thread every now and then so if you have questions be patient unless someone else answers, hope this helps anyone else out there
