I finally gave up and wanted to factory reset. When I did, the phone got stuck with the teamwin screen. Switched it off and on and everything was as bad as before (no reset happened).
So to summ up: I can’t factory reset and I can’t enter system recovery. Both end up with the forever teamwin screen. WTF.
Is there a way to just wipe this entire POS?
I restarted my phone, since I ran into a problem (a call would not connect for some reason) and that usually solves things.
However, now the following things don’t work anymore, which used to be just fine, before I restarted:
- my quick access is broken. When I swipe down once from the top it only shows one row of (six) options. I used to be able to swipe down twice, to expand the menu. Now, I can’t access Bluetooth, position, flight mode, etc.
1.1 side note: when I pick “cellular data” for example. Then that remains the only option for quick access and I can’t see the other five anymore, no option to return to “default”
I used to be able to click on the square in the lower right corner and it would show all open apps. Not anymore.
Developer options: when I want to access these, all it says is a white screen with “Developer options are not available for this user”.
I don’t get any notifications anymore
Updating Podcasts works, but the download icon doesn’t show on, as it usually does, on the top of the phone
Updating apps does not appear to work. The Status gets stuck on “Download pending…”
Can’t connect my phone to computer. Which makes it impossible to create a local back up. Great. I hope ANOTHER “factory reset” is not the only solution to this problem .
Not getting SMS. Good bye 2FA accounts…
This is what I discovered so far. Otherwise the phone seems to work.
Restarting Did Not Solve This Problem (DNSTP). Switching on/off including removing the battery DNSTP. Changing from Nova Launcher to default also DNSTP.
System settings: Android 7.1.2
Any help and suggestions welcome.
Edit: Added more problems to the list
