With this BETA6 build, I'm on a bootloop.
Here's my configuration:
-Xperia Z1 (c6903)
I began by factory resetting and flashing Beta 6 from SD card through CWM (the one that came with boot.img). There was some complaints with mounting when I factory reset and flashed the beta, but it seems like it did the job (outputted that it installed). I installed gapps and it flashed fine.
After that, the neat boot animation appeared, but it never finished booting. I gave it about 10 minutes and it's still on the animation.
What should I do? How could I report this? Beta 4 didn't loop on me...
Previous ROM just before flashing Beta 6??
Was it Beta 4? if yes then this should not happen.. (Try to do Clean flash again with FACTORY RESET, WIPE CACHE & DALVIK CACHE and in Recovery go to mounts and storage and then Format boot, format system, format catche, format data, format everything u see.. Except SDcard1)
Well I had beta 4 but my screen cracked and I had to return it to Sony. So I flashed it back to Sony and resetted everything to defaults. After getting it a month later, Beta 6 was out. I was eager to try it out, so I downloaded the 2 zips. I re-unlocked the bootloader and flashed boot.img via fastboot. Then I got into CWM. I did a factory reset and there was errors trying to mount the drive, but it seemed like it flashed ok. I ignored it and flashed dalvik + cache. No mounting errors. I then inserted the sd containing the 2 zips and flashed the OS, then Gaps. I restarted the phone and it bootlooped. I went back to CWM and tried wiping dalvik and cache again, but no luck.
I did these steps with Beta 4 and it worked great EXCEPT for my SIM (invalid sim, no network). I did the same with beta 6 and it bootlooped.
I have a feeling that even if it did flash right, the SIM won't work again. Sorry for asking 2 questions at once, but how to solve this?
I guessed So.. this happens when coming from Stock u can try this..
if u are coming from stock to AOSP then Downgrade to 4.2 .534 FW having Root and a Recovery ( but i think if u downgraded to 4.3 .290 FW then also it will do the trick ) and then u follow the instruction in OP with the below recommended instructions -
"After 5th point in Recovery go to mounts and storage and then Format boot, format system, format catche, format data, format everything u see.. Except SDcard1 (ofc).. And then move to 6th point."
If u flash .757 before coming to PA or any other AOSP ROM's then u might have trouble
Yeah I did flash from .757, but according to Sony's bootloader unlock website, they said that "To unlock the Xperia™ Z1 boot loader, you must make sure your device is on software build 14.2.A.0.290 (Android 4.3) or later. Unlocking the boot loader on earlier software versions will stop the camera functionality." http://unlockbootloader.sonymobile.com/instructions
I'll try re-flashing straight from 534. I'm worried though that it might break the camera...I don't know how I went around it last time. Let you know how it went. Thanks
it will work.. dont worry its just for solving the Partition Problems and other bugs.. nothing to do with camera.. when u do this and come to 4.4 AOSP ROM then Camera will work again.. Also if u dont want to downgrade it that much just Downgrade to 290 and do ur thing.. as sony said "you must make sure your device is on software build 14.2.A.0.290 (Android 4.3) or later"
