Thank you, it was a silly incomplete ota update to Android N preview from Google and the main problem was the settings app crash. I got the solution from other caught in users: update from ota image provided by Google special for such problems. Unfortunately all data got lost before!

The obvious solution to having no operating system is to add one. That's why what you can do, is to re-flash the custom ROM you are having, or a different one (maybe even a stock ROM). You can go on their page, and find your build there. Once you download the ZIP, you put it on your SD, through the computer, and flash the ZIP from there, or you can use ADB ...

Hope it's not too late... You should try another button instead of power button. The power button doesn't work on my phone either, but in my phone, it makes me press "Home" to make a choice.

Before you flash the recovery, untick the Auto Reboot option in ODIN. Then flash the recovery. After flashing in done, reboot your device directly to recovery mode from download mode bu pressing Vol up + Power + Home button together. Now you will see the CWM recovery is booted in your device. Now you can reboot normally and your CWM will be installed.

Per this page, WARNING: Do not boot into Samsung's ROM without first applying our Root .zip. Samsung's OTA updates install /system/etc/install-recovery.sh and /system/recovery-from-boot.p, which cause Samsung's ROM to replace the recovery image you had just flashed with the stock recovery. Our Root .zip removes these files, thus preserving your custom ...

No, it is not possible to remove the app from bootloader. ADB daemon is not running in the device in that tiny environment when the device is in fastboot mode and stock recovery doesn't offer shell access. Your best bet is to flash a custom recovery, such as TWRP, CWM or Philz Touch from fastboot/download mode or from a tool using PC (if at all possible ...

First off I'm assuming that the device is already flashing unlocked since you said you tried to flash the update from recovery. You shouldn't need a backup but make one anyways because recovery might be flashed over. Read everything first before you get started. Download current image (the one you have now, you can try 29X or latest 30D), it's best to ...

Okay, I add another answer because the protocol I am attaching differs from what I posted above. This worked for me, I cannot tell if this will work for you; please don't point your finger on me ;) This is meant for all who have a CM CM12.1 Nightly build 2016-01-19 or later installed - including Cyanogenmod's recovery which IS NOT ABLE to install Zip Files. ...

Root - means having "superuser" or administrator access to the OS. Bootloader unlock - means allowing the device to boot a custom OS. Custom recovery - allows you to make a complete backup of the internal storage as well as flash ZIPs. ROM installation - is actual process of installing a custom OS.

I was a bit wrong, it appeared that i had no system and no bootloader (through which I used to launch recovery). I held both volume buttons and sticked usb cable during this - and it helped.

One way that might be possible is to connect your phone to the computer using usb. I'm not sure in kitkat but you can then safely transfer your most needed files to the computer. You may need to have usb debugging options enabled however. Also, if you have a removable case then do it and remove the sim card (and the battery if you can). I had a similar ...

I am still puzzled about how the recovery issue is so stubborn. However, after reading through a blog post on root-your-android-device-without-flashing-custom-recovery, I understood that you can boot your phone temporarily on a custom recovery and install root binary. Being lazy and already downloaded the Nexus Root Kit, I just clicked Root which exactly ...

It was simply a problem of line endings. Somewhere along the road I modified the lpm file and the line endings of the file were changed to Windows and they were supposed to be to Unix line endings. When you edit a file in a text editor make sure to the correct line endings. Next is a picture of how to do it in Sublime Text:

According to the source code available on GitHub, the recovery performs a whole bunch of operations aside from simply launching the daemon in background, copying the su binary to /system/xbin and changing its permissions. As can be understood by examining this install-su script, what the recovery does, is to initially perform a cleanup operation for root ...

As a first step, you will need to merge the various .backupN files into one by using the following command: cat userdata_yyyymmdd_HHMMSS.backup* > userdata_yyyymmdd_HHMMSS.backup It looks like the header size of 512 bytes is the same across many devices, so try to extract using the following command: dd if=userdata_xxxxxxxx_yyyyyy.backup bs=512 skip=1 ...
