My phone is stuck in bootloop and keeps going to an 'erase' screen

New Member

I tried to root my device trough odin. Odin said it was succesful, but when i turned on my device it said someething like 'vertification failed, you have to reset your device'. So i tapped the button 'reset'. Then my phone restarted and its now stuck on a boot loop with the 'erasing' screen. It just goes to a blue screen with the android logo and beneath it it says 'erasing'. Then after a few seconds, it restarts and turns back to the screen again.

I cannot get into recovery mode, because you'd have to do it with the power button, volume and bixby button, but the second i try to do that, it just restarts. Even when my phone stopped with the bootloop and just shut down, when hold my power button it just restarts the boot loop... I now am waiting already for 2 hours, but it still is in the boot loop with the erasing screen. Maybe i should wait for my battery to die, but I dont think thats going to work, because once it just stopped the bootloop, but when i started my phone again it just restarted the bootloop.


I can only get into download mode, but thats all. I dont know my build number.


My phone is a samsung galaxy sm-g950f


I hope my phone isnt bricked and this can be fixed.

I honestly think your best avenue is to talk with the people on xdadevelopers and look at the help threads and tutorials.


Unfortunately rooting a phone can lead to stability issues @Miley  which also invalidates the manufacturer warranty and typically Samsung won't be able to provide support as Knox may have been tripped.


I wish you all the best with this situation.
