I am having trouble booting into Recovery/Getting past the start screen, can I get some help please?
Hey everybody, alright I have a sort of dual problem here.
I did a factory reset on a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (GT-S7560M) and everything went fine... or so I thought. I get past the language, wifi set up, and Time Zone screens, but when I click "next" after that it goes to a black screen. The notification bar is visible, and I can turn it off and on, but the rest of the screen is black. The Home button does nothing, and hitting the back button takes me back to the initial menu. I thought I could solve this myself, so I used Odin to flash a recovery onto the phone (I'm still pretty new to all this, so I apologize if the terminology isn't quite correct.) Everything went well, it all worked, it was able to go into download mode, but now it won't let me boot into the recovery. I installed CWM and it didn't work, so then I also tried TWRP and the same thing happens. It boots up, and over top of the "Samsung" logo, at the bottom, there's a little yellow triangle. If I keep on pressing, everything disappears and when I let go it boots up normally. If I let go immediately as soon as I see the triangle, it does the same.
All I want at the moment is access to the phone, then from there I don't really care what happens with it. It's already reset, so I don't care about data, caches, anything, I just want the phone to be usable.
I've researched everything I can think of, but most things (like installing a custom ROM) require that you can go into recovery mode in the phone, and I couldn't find any .tar custom ROM's that Odin can install.
Sorry if this is a long post, I tried to be as detailed as possible in all of my explanations. (This probably goes without saying, but the phone is rooted, and the SU is something called KingRoot.)
If anybody could help I would really appreciate it.
