00:56 SageForce joined #motoactv
00:56 SageForce here's to day 3 I think of hanging your irc chat room alone
00:56 SageForce lol
01:20 CEnnis91 SageForce: hey
01:37 SageForce o damm
01:37 SageForce you there
01:37 SageForce lol
01:37 SageForce shit I missed yea again
01:37 SageForce FML
01:37 CEnnis91 no im here
01:37 CEnnis91 sorry
01:38 SageForce haha
01:38 SageForce it's all good
01:38 SageForce I figured at some point I would run into someone
01:38 CEnnis91 so lets see, 4 days? later; is your motoactv charged?
01:40 SageForce I got 2 kids. I have plenty of patience. Well for my kids not their mother hahaha
01:40 SageForce but that's a different story
01:40 SageForce let me run upstairs and see what the charge is on it
01:41 CEnnis91 if it's in a bootloop, im guessing it's not going to charge, in order to charge it in recovery or bootloader mode; you'd need a factory cable
01:41 CEnnis91 also, lol
01:42 SageForce actually it's dead. I tried the images from http://forum.xda-developers.​com/showthread.php?t=1534073
01:44 SageForce I have been able to get them to each load but after it restarts it hangs at the M logo with rings flashing
01:45 SageForce it will change and after a bit I can get it into the bootloader fastboot screen
01:47 SageForce If I use root tool 2.0.1 the dos screen displays the following message http://postimg.org/image/d0nj3xxmf/
01:48 CEnnis91 everything seems normal in that case
01:48 CEnnis91 how long did you let the watch try to boot?
01:49 CEnnis91 after wiping a device, it can sometimes take a little longer to boot the very first time
01:49 CEnnis91 also, if you know how, can you check the md5sum of the downloaded zip that you have
01:49 CEnnis91 and compare it with the ones on http://forum.xda-developers.​com/showthread.php?t=1534073
01:50 SageForce actually once it reboots it just keeps flashing the rings around the M logo untill the battery dies
01:50 CEnnis91 but how long is that?
01:51 SageForce last time I think about an hour
01:51 CEnnis91 okay, that's definitely a boot loop though
01:51 CEnnis91 then*
01:52 CEnnis91 i never used the root tool, i designed the zips to be used without it, and someone else built that tool afterwards
01:52 CEnnis91 maybe something is messed up with that? -- but the fastboot output that you posted appears fine
01:53 SageForce I have tried the 8gb NA, 16gb NA, 8gb EU and still it just hangs there
01:53 CEnnis91 yea they're all the same they just have little bits of code differences
01:53 CEnnis91 so just use the one that is what your device is
01:53 SageForce yea I used your standalone images with the flash-all.bat
01:54 CEnnis91 okay, and it still happened?
01:54 SageForce I have tried all three
01:54 SageForce and it will just hang at the M logo with rings spinning
01:55 CEnnis91 did you previously play with different things at some point?
01:55 CEnnis91 or was this the first time you tried rooting
01:55 CEnnis91 or rather, is this you going back to stock?
01:57 SageForce I bought it on ebay, and this is the state I got it in. I have rooted before and usually never ask for help. since the forums are so indepth
01:57 SageForce I can usually figure it out
01:57 SageForce but this time I'm stuck like Chuck
01:57 CEnnis91 wait so you got it in a non-booting state?
01:57 SageForce yea unfortunatley
01:58 CEnnis91 was it listed as such?
01:58 CEnnis91 (i don't know ebay much) -- do they still have the page up?
01:59 SageForce I looked through it and didn't realized it was listed in the details. eck I though it was suppose to have at least the wrist strap but no such luck
02:00 SageForce I'm kicking myself in the butt on this bad deal
02:00 SageForce do you think a factory cable will really help?
02:00 CEnnis91 there could very well be filesystem/hardware issues
02:00 CEnnis91 factory cable will allow it to charge in recovery and bootloader mode
02:01 CEnnis91 so it'll allow you work on it for longer periods of time if anything
02:01 CEnnis91 SageForce: how much do you know about linux and adb?
02:01 SageForce enought that I could cause some serious shit to go down lol
02:02 SageForce If the intructions are there I should be abe to get through them
02:02 CEnnis91 well that's the problem
02:02 CEnnis91 there's not going to be instructions for this lol
02:02 CEnnis91 because we don't know what the issue is
02:02 SageForce great
02:02 CEnnis91 but, i can somewhat help you
02:03 SageForce well Linux I have some experiance. I can complie and install and make my way through directories
02:03 CEnnis91 you won't find this on the forums because it doesn't work 100% and is really only used for debugging
02:03 SageForce as for adb very little. I have read how you guys push files and send commands
02:03 CEnnis91 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5849​675/android/f100/reboot-recovery-adb.zip
02:04 CEnnis91 the public recovery works, but it doesn't have adb because the motoactv is really crappy with that lol
02:04 CEnnis91 the link above DOES have adb working, but some basic recovery functions don't work
02:04 SageForce okay i'm downloading it. yea I have seen some other guys having issues.
02:05 CEnnis91 if you flash that (in the same manner as the other files) you will get into recovery with adb
02:05 CEnnis91 there you can poke around to see if anything looks odd
02:05 CEnnis91 maybe test if you can even mount the filesystem and what not
02:05 SageForce is it any diferent that MArebootrecovery\
02:06 CEnnis91 yes
02:06 CEnnis91 it's a different recovery
02:06 CEnnis91 that's the only difference
02:06 CEnnis91 so yea, you flash it the same way
02:06 SageForce okay. any suggestions as to what to try once I get it into this recovery?
02:07 CEnnis91 last_kmsg is always a good place to start
02:07 CEnnis91 you'll need to try booting into android first though
02:07 CEnnis91 so let it loop a few times
02:08 CEnnis91 boot into bootloader
02:08 CEnnis91 flash that
02:08 CEnnis91 adb shell
02:08 CEnnis91 (from your computer)
02:08 CEnnis91 cat /proc/last_kmsg
02:09 SageForce that should hopefully tell me the error it's getting locked at correct
02:09 CEnnis91 right
02:09 CEnnis91 it may very well point to something that is hardware related
02:09 CEnnis91 at that point, you're pretty much done =/
02:09 CEnnis91 another place to look is to see if you can even get into /data/
02:09 CEnnis91 see if anything looks funny
02:10 CEnnis91 if he's around maybe [mbm] can point you to some random places to look at
02:10 CEnnis91 [mbm]: tl;dr - he got a non-booting motoactv off ebay, trying to debug why even after flashing stock images; he has adb access from recovery
02:11 SageForce yea you may be right that even since I can get into recovery there is another issue that is not allwoing be to boot it
02:14 SageForce I'll go ahead and try that and save the dos output results
02:14 CEnnis91 good luck
02:14 CEnnis91 and like i said, stick around, even post the results
02:15 CEnnis91 im always around, but not always around to help debug, so i can look at what you got in passing and then catch you when i have more time
02:16 SageForce most def I'll post up what I find.
02:16 SageForce if I can help someone else that would be cool
02:19 CEnnis91 and for reference, the stock images that i posted; im very confident that they work
02:20 CEnnis91 so if no errors pop up when you flash it, it means its not an error on your side
02:20 CEnnis91 99.9% of the time
02:20 CEnnis91 and it's the device itself
02:22 SageForce yea I have a funny feeling this thing might be toast. Cause I have been on XDA for a while and rooted for years. and Never been in a situation i couldn't recover from. But this might be that one time I'm hosed
02:24 SageForce I did have issues when I 1st got it that it would fail the image install
02:24 SageForce it would say too many links
02:24 SageForce but after I used the fastboot -w command I didn't receive anymore issues
02:49 * [mbm] scrolls up
02:50 SageForce hey mbm you there?
02:50 [mbm] not het; wait until I scroll back down to present time
02:52 SageForce okauy I'll wait for you in the future
02:54 [mbm] so the motoactv is now running fully stock with no errors?
03:02 SageForce I wish
03:03 SageForce actually I have been trying to load a stock rom into it
03:03 SageForce I can run the images CEnnis91 has posted and they all run
03:04 SageForce without error's and reboot my motoactv but after the reboot
03:04 SageForce it hangs at the M logo screen with the pulsing rings
03:05 [mbm] hmm .. you'd need to rig an image with logcat support
03:06 SageForce so does that mean that reboot-recovery-adb isn't going to help
03:07 [mbm] be easier to just hack up the stock root image to support logcat
03:09 SageForce is there an image I can download that will have the logcat hacked into it that I could use to get the boot logs to see what;s happening to my actv
03:10 [mbm] anything I have is on http://wiki.opticaldelusion.org/wiki/Motoactv
03:12 SageForce I have seen your site before
03:13 [mbm] you could probably drop the image tjat enables adb and then reload stock and use adb logcat
03:15 SageForce so then when I get into logcat do I use logcat -d
03:16 SageForce to dump the log to the screen
03:19 [mbm] adb logcat > log.txt; pastebin log.txt
03:22 SageForce okay any ideas what I should be keeping an eye out for?>
03:24 * [mbm] gave up on the motoactv over a year ago
03:28 SageForce hahaha yea I can understand. I was only rooting my Galaxies for wifi tethered but since I moved to AT&T not muc use anymore
03:28 SageForce not much use anymore that is
03:30 [mbm] battery life is about 6h max; got sick of leaving it on the charger
03:31 SageForce what?
03:31 SageForce 6hrs?
03:31 SageForce are you kidding me?
