[Q] Stuck at samsung logo... again

Search This thread


Oct 15, 2010

I have a note 3 (SD version) and after a few reboots it got stuck on boot at the samsung logo. Because at that time I didnt to that much with the phone, I just wiped from recovery and everything was fine again.

I installed apps and even tried rebooting several times, which was fine.

Just now, I rebooted because there was a strange problem with the wifi and now the phone is stuck again on samsung logo - after I spent hours reinstalling and reconfiguring stuff.

I can enter download mode, I can enter recovery, for now I didnt manage to boot in safe mode, but maybe I am doing it wrong (I tried this).

Is there _any_ way I can get at my data (apps, settings, blabla) without just wiping again. Why is this happening!

I reset the phone and after first reboot ran in the same problem again.

This time I enabled usb debugging and yes, the phone is already in a state to access it via adb.

This is what I assume is the problem:

Is there any way to disable wifi or work around this to get to a proper desktop?

Go to SamFirmware website and download the Stock firmware for your device.

After, put your phone in Download Mode and flash that stock firmware using Odin.

Good luck :)

What firmware do you have now? The best thing would be indeed to flash a stock rom over the one you have now. This should also keep your data!
