Answer

If you experience such behavior the following might explain it:

  1. Bus Error
    • Description: If bus errors occur during the linux kernel start-up it might get stuck in the so called "Bus Error Trap Handler". This happens only if another bus error occurs which is an extremely rare case
    • Workaround: Power cycling the phone.
  2. Serial Console:
    • Description: The serial console might get stuck in the so called "uboot prompt" while the phone is booting up. This can be caused by invalid communication patterns on the serial interface.
    • Workaround: Update the phone's firmware and bootloader version:
Personal tools
Interoperability
