I have a cheap generic Android tablet (a Groupon special) that won't boot.
My theory is that the storage is full because this happened to two different tablets after installing apps. update: I learned how to use adb to remove apps and this problem persists.
It gets to a Android logo screen in the boot process and hangs there. The only hardware buttons available are the Power and Volume buttons. I have already tried holding down the Power + Vol Up + Vol Dn buttons, and that does not reset the device.
adb reboot recovery, but that only reboots the device and then continues to hang at the same screen.
recovery --wipe_data. This causes the screen to flicker a moment, and then I get a Segmentation fault.
I'm stuck. I'm not a big Android guy so all this is from searching online and I don't quite understand what all is happening. Any other tips are GREATLY appreciated!!
