After installing CM9 on my Samsung Galaxy S+ (Plus) it gets stuck in the "SAMSUNG" screen whenever I restart, the very first screen (I guess). I have to press the Power button 10 seconds to restart when I come to that point. Did someone discover that kind of problem before, how can I solve the issue?

  • I have experienced something like this when I first flashed CM10 on my vibrant. I thought it was stuck so I pulled the battery, then rebooted in to recovery and reflashed (wiping data and cache) then rebooted. The screen was "stuck" there for some time again, but I let it go for a bit and it did eventually boot past it, it just took longer then I expected. Commented Aug 30, 2012 at 17:42

This is a common outcome for many possible problems. If you can get in to clockworkmod(or whatever custom recovery) try reflashing cm9. If that doesn't work try doing a factory reset from recovery (clear data/factory reset) and then reflashing cm9.

On the international SGS you always had to flash cm-roms twice (on first flash it sets up the partitions and on the second flash it finaly flashes the rom).

If you still can't boot, flash a stock ROM with Odin (I think it is Odin you use for flashing stock ROMs, since it is Samsung device, if not use whatever is recomended on XDA-developers under topic named something like "restoring a stock ROM"), and check that it boots that. After that install root, recovery and cm as before.

If you still can't get it to boot after that, let us know.

  • My SGS+ is running correctly with CM9. I can boot (if phone was shut off) and shutdown correctly, only when explicitly restarting the problem occurs.

  • If everything else works ok, than this is most probably a bug in cm, or just a wierd conincidence in your particular configuration. Either way I would not worry about it since there is a simple workaround. If you want to restart it power it off and than back on. The whole thing is to small to lose sleep over it.
