Greetings,

I am embarrassed to say I have messed up my S5

I was in Safestrap and evidently formatted an incorrect partition
As a result, it just boot loops to the first splash screen

I have unsuccessfully tried to Odin back to a custom image...except that particular .tar/process is for the developer variety.

Is there any way to get SafeStrap back on or recover through Odin?

My tail is between my legs!

Best,

Landlocked

First....please don't post questions in the Dev section.

Second : grab the tar from here and flash in ODIN. That will restore you back to stock. At least it will be working again.

Howdy! Please post in the correct sections. There's a whole section devoted to questions & the section you posted in (development) has specific rules about what is acceptable. Basically, if you didn't "create it" don't post in development.

Moved the thread to Q&A where it belongs, thanks!
