Well I got through the installer but the very last screen where it said I would see the e logo / animation, my phone started just flashing the Galaxy s9+ logo -on for 8 seconds off for 2- over and over again… it just does that and nothing more.
I am wondering what could have gone wrong? Does this sound familiar to anyone and does anyone have any suggestions for me or something I could try ?
update: I can add that holding on and Bixby and Volume UP gets me into TeamWin Recovery Project version 3.2.3-0 … I do not know what to do from here however
update 2: I was able to get the Easy Java installer to see my device after I booted into TeamWin and am trying to go through the Easy Installer screens again…
update 3: OK got stuck at unlock OEM screen because, I suppose, it’s waiting for a signal from Android but since I am in TeamWin and can’t get to anywhere else I am not going to pass this OEM unlock screen (despite the fact that the OEM Unlock has been successfully unlocked during my earilier attempt).
So that’s where I am now.
OK Unless I can get out of this I am pretty sure the phone is bricked. I am only in 1 of 2 states:
Either I press Bixby + Up Volume and On in which case I can only get to a screen which says Downloading: Do Not Turn Off Target
Or I try off the phone and boot normally in which case the Samsung infinite loop appears as described above.
Both appear to be dead ends. I cannot get my computer to see the phone at all.
Any suggestions welcomed!
Upate 4(!) I see I am able to boot to the full TWRP menu, (power + Bixby + Volume Up starting from from phone off now shows me that) so this gives me hope I can recover fully.
Ahh… feel free to just throw anything out there you can think of, obviously I am quite lost !
Thank you !!!
