I successfully flashed a stock ROM on my Galaxy Note 4 using Odin 3.13.1 but, unfortunatelly, the bootloop is not gone.

Device info:

  • SM-N910C
  • unrooted
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Bootloop sequence: Samsung boot screen —> Android is starting... Optimising Apps 2 of 2. —> Android is starting... Starting apps. —> LOOP

What are my options to restore my personal data from now on?

Hoping that you have not wiped your data while flashing firmware using Odin, the process of data retrieval can be variably difficult.

The best way I can think of is to flash a custom recovery on your device then mount desired partitions.

PS I have no information whether your phone is rooted or not, so just providing the most workable way.

  • Wouldn't flashing anything other than the stock ROM wipe out the data anyway? Or custom recovery is something different?

    Custom recoveries, when flashed correctly, only overwrite the recovery partition. Commented Oct 28, 2019 at 17:06
  • I see. Do you have any recommendations?

    @Rayhunter Recommendations regarding recovery? TWRP. Commented Oct 28, 2019 at 18:10
  • Will unlocking the bootloader wipe out my personal data? I was left under the impression that it actually did. If so, is there a way to install TWRP without unlocking the BL?
