  • Gab Real

    Can u please help me? After restoring a back up ROM through CWM I tried to repartition the internal memory of my Lenovo A800. But when I reboot my phone it got stock on boot loop.. I tried to fix it but it just doesn’t work. I tried to go to the recovery mode but I can’t (maybe the CWM that I flashed was erased after I restored the back up ROM). When I pressed Volume + and Power button for a few seconds the screen prompts “Have been in factory mode, long press power button and normal boot”.

    How do I fix this? Can someone please help me? :((((

  • Anecia Hurley Price

    My Sister-In-Law asked me to help restore her rooted Galaxy Note 2, (from AT&T,) but I’m not sure that I can. She was attempting to do a factory reset when the battery fell out and now the phone is stuck in a boot loop… So, is the phone “bricked” or is their any hope of restoring it? Neither Best Buy nor AT&T would touch it.

    *Thanks for your help in advance! -Anecia
