Yesterday I woke up and my phone was at a locked TWRP screen with “swipe to allow modifications” or keep read only.
Because I did not know how I got there I chose keep read only, then reboot, then system.
Everything worked fine again.
This morning I was working on my computer when my phone suddenly lit up and displayed an “e” with a bouncing dot under it. This remained lit up like this for about 5 to 10 min then booted into TWRP again. This time it said “swipe to unlock” I did and rebooted.
I am not sure of the exact time this happened yesterday but this morning was about 9:30 to 9:45.
I was a 65% battery after selecting reboot from TWRP.
I have had e os installed for a couple weeks now and yesterday is the first time this has happened.
for the last 5 days I have not installed anything new.
the last thing I installed was battery alarm to set charging reminders.
I did enable battery saver at some point a couple days ago but nothing else…
Any Idea what could cause this?
This is on a Samsung A5 (2017)
I did it again this morning at the same time.
If I select power off then restart or select reboot the phone boots normally and does not enter TWRP.
It is like there is a setting that causes it to reboot every morning now.
I have seen a couple people talking about going through the recovery process several times in a row to fix a similar issue but their phones just went into TWRP every time they restarted them.
This seems different as my phone worked fine for weeks and only does it by itself; not when I initiate a restart.
is there a setting somewhere in the phone that might do this?
As you had no reply … my first thought was might this be a hangover from the last installed OS or firmware ? Firstly were you sure to Format data at install ? This last point especially if you did not come from Stock ROM.
I think most builds contain Bug Report within Developer options, this might work for you.
While R builds are marked beta, (may be due to lack of a test device at time of launch, idk) Q builds are end of life and no longer receive updates, so an Upgrade to R is probably a thing to have in mind in the fairly near future.
I am unsure what is happening here but something must be very wrong because since I have enabled logging my phone will not properly lock. I can lock the phone by pressing the power button and if I try waking the phone using the power button it works… but if I press the home button it just bypasses the lock screen altogether.
I am going to re-flash the phone, use the latest e os for my phone and assume this is the correct solution, thanks to anyone who tried to help.
