Galaxy S GT-I9000 stuck in boot loop

(1/2) > >>

Ethereus:
Hi,

My Galaxy S keeps having issues and now they've hit their worst. When I try to turn it on it's stuck in a boot loop in the "Galaxy S GT-I9000 Samsung" screen. It'll show up, disappear, and show up again. I tried doing a factory reset and wiping the cache partition but it didn't do anything. However, whenever I reboot via recovery it says "E: failed to mount data (file exists)", and I have no idea what this means.

The phone had been exhibiting strange behavior, like wiping all my personal data such as memos and texts a while back (even made a thread that never got me any answers) and I sent it for repair hoping they'd find a hardware problem and correct it. They found nothing, told me to be more specific with my tech support requests and just installed the latest Android firmware. That fixed it (duh) for a while, but a week ago it started acting up again, with troubles booting. Then, one day it had wiped my personal data. Today it's stuck in the loop.

Does samsung have customer support in Portugal?

Anyway, any ideas? This is driving me insane. Thank you.

Hey Ethereus. Sorry to hear that your SGS1 is acting up.

I would suggest (seeing as you've had your data wiped already) to download Odin and JVT stock ROM (PDA, PHONE/MODEM, CSC) and a 502 .pit file and flash (instructions for this available eVeRYWHeRe!

This will wipe all your data. When the phone reboots after the flash, turn it off and go into CWM (Vol Up + Home Button + Power On for 3 secs) and selecting both wipe options. And then reboot.

Once phone loads up again, wipe and format both SD cards (external optional but is advised).

This will factory reset your phone back to stock but on a more recent, more stable and more better ROM.

See how that goes.

If you fancy a bit more... Get yourself a Semaphore Kernel v 1.9.1 JVT (http://www.semaphore.gr/downloads/i9000). With this, in CWM, you get an option marked ADVANCED. In that section you can WIPE DALVIK CACHE which should also help.

P.S. Flashing instructions  OO):
When flashing JVT 3 file stock ROM, sometime RE-PARTITION doesn't "self-tick". Make sure this is ticked BUT ONLY WHEN USING A .PIT FILE.
To flash a Kernel, load up Odin, load Kernel into PDA. That is all.

No "That is all".
Flashing a kernel via Odin, untick Repartition and don't use any PIT file!

This is happening to hubby's phone.   He won't let me reset it as he hasn't backedup his photos.  He just wants me to leave it looping, as it did this before and then started again on it's own.

Will doing "wipe cache partition" lose his pictures? He doesn't have an external sd card.
