I have a Samsung Galaxy S2. I factory-reset my phone from the Settings option, but it is taking too much time. It has been 24 hours already, but the device is only boot-looping. I've also tried to boot into recovery-mode (by holding the Vol+ and Vol- buttons while pressing Power), but this boot-looped as well.

How can I solve this problem? The device is rooted, if that's any help.

  • We need some more details to be able to help: any error messages displayed? Anything to be seen on the screen? What's happening? Has the device rebooted, or is it hanging in the boot process – maybe even looping (boot-logo on/off/on/off...)? – Izzy Oct 6 '13 at 14:55
  • Sorry about that . Well no it hasn't rebooted yet , it's just looping as you said , is it solvable ? – Elham Oct 6 '13 at 15:11
  • Plus my phone is rooted . – Elham Oct 6 '13 at 18:12

Get a USB Jig, that will get you into download mode. It's just a 300k ohm resistor that bridges a couple pins on the USB Port. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/221154257373?lpid=82


Well have samsung phones have this bug in which you go to boot loop in almost every reboot session. I also faced so i luckly have an solution and see if it works. Just turn off the phone completely , remove battery and wait for a minute or two put the battery back in and start the phone. this started my phone correctly as it was previously stuck on black bootloader screen and wasent even going to boot animation stage.
