TWRP - wipe cache/dalvik/anything.... soft brick...
So I have been following the unofficial cm-10.2 ROM. I have dirty flashed probably 3 times without issue. I flash the ROM, a pinlock removal zip and gapps. Then wipe dalvik/cache and reboot. I started doing this with twrp 2.6.
So this morning I grab the latest update, backup, flash.l, reboot.... nothing.
Stuck at LG logo to a black screen. I can get into bootloader, blindly vol down twice and into recovery, now twrp 2.5, so I try to recover by backup, reboot.... black screen.
So I try wiping/factory reset, clean flash, reboot.... black screen...
Now I am a little concerned. I read up and find out about TeenyBin, so I setup my machine to flash the standard zip and that doesn't really work, it flashes fine, reboots but is stuck at LG logo and the tool reports disconnected, so the tool fails kind of. So I try the alternate, same sort of thing, but now it says Google instead of LG and is stuck there. I can get into bootloader, can see text now (nice!) and get into recovery, still 2.5. Tried restoring, wiping/flashing, nothing working..... stuck at Google logo.
So, then I went and formatted internal storage. Bingo! Now I can flash/restore/whatever and I can reboot and get into ROM!
Woah, woah, woah... Not so fast.
So now if I wipe anything, cache/dalvik/system/ANYTHING it soft bricks. I have to again format internal, then flash. That doesn't seem right to me. Sure, I have a functioning phone, but updating is a bigger bitch now that I have to completely format before flashing.
So my question to you all, how do I fix this? Do I need to completely go back to stock image and reroot? I appreciate all your suggestions.
