Android Tablet Stuck in Boot Loop



  • Any Android guru's here?
    I've got a tablet from a friend that's stuck in a boot loop. I think he's tried flashing the recovery image with something like clockworkmod as he wanted to try a custom ROM.

    All this seems to do is load the android icon and reboot0_1492700047461_android boot.png

    I also can't seem to get it into recovery mode using the normal Vol+ + Power button combo.

    The other problem is ...... It's a cheap ยฃ50 china tablet from Ebay so it's not branded. I've opened it up and found it's a Allwinner A33 processor and the board has GA10H-V1.1 in a few places.

    Any ideas how to re-flash or recover ๐Ÿ™‚



  • @hobbit666 At 50 pounds, it's cheaper to replace it than attempt to fix it.

    How much is your time worth?



  • It's not hard to brick android devices when you flash them if you aren't familiar with the process. Even if you are familiar with the process, it is still a risk every single time you try to flash a custom OS.



  • @IRJ that's why I posted if I can find a quick solution i.e. and hour or two i'll fix it. If it's going to take most of the day it will go to the skip ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yeah that's one of the reason if I was buying it would spend the money on a branded one so others would of do it already and posed guides online lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    With common phone brands you could probably find some more information. Getting a random bricked chinese device to work is very difficult because they change models like underwear, and most people won't spend the time and resources to do custom fixes on them.

    does fastboot.exe devices respond to the device if you attach to your computer via USB device.

    and download Minimal ADB and Fastboot tools

    And run adb.exe devices or fastboot.exe devices

    does it discover any devices or shows null

    That will be starting point. also note when its stuck in boot loop it will be hard to get it to recovery or fastboot mode cause the device is restarting instead of shutting down and then powering on, and some devices can only reach recovery from shutdown state only and not reboot state cause it skips the possibility of booting to recovery for faster startup, can you remove the battery of the device and then put it back in and try :

    Vol+ + Power
    Vol- + Power

    ALL BUTTONS + Power



  • Maybe ask over on XDA.



  • Was there any success? xD
    Cuz mine have the same problem!! ๐Ÿ˜•



  • I experienced quite a few reboot loops as an avid Android user. I've tried Safe Mode and everything works ok.

    Wait for the manufacturer name to appear on the screen while itโ€™s booting, then press and hold โ€œVolume Downโ€œ. This should place the device into โ€œSafe Modeโ€. If the device starts successfully in Safe Mode, you may have to uninstall problematic apps or undo a setting that may have caused the issue.



  • To be honest i'm not sure how i fixed this one.

    I think i used the Minimal ADB and Fastboot tools for this tablet and flashed the latest firmware



  • @Kylynx
    What make and model tablet have you got? Have a look online to see how to get into Safe Mode.
