My phone has recently given up and freezes on the Samsung logo screen. Having tried all the soft reset options I knew of, I have decided to wipe the data/ factory reset.
The steps followed are outlined here but should be pretty similar for most Samsung Android phones.
I have initiated the reset process, but now my phone has frozen on that too. My screen displays
-- Applying Multi-CSC -- -- Wiping data... Formatting /data...
And what appears to be a fully-loaded progress bar (just a guess) - but that's it.
Any idea where I should go from here, as the phone's beginning to overheat so I may have to remove the battery again!
