    Explain futher on what happened. I looked at the app and out doesn't require root permissions which makes it impossible to damage the kernel or system. If what I'm gathering is right, all you had to do was factory reset without logging in to your google account.

    The dev is baffled as well, but it happened to me and two other users, so something happened.

    How is a factory reset not supposed to wipe out my data, which is what I'm trying to avoid? "Just do a factory reset," is so easy for some to say; they must not actually have any apps and data on their phones. And then not log in? Um, why? You're telling me to erase my phone and then never set it up for use again. Yes, very helpful suggestion.

    You've missed my point exactly. First, a factory reset would erase your data and apps , not anything on your sdcard , so you could've just downloaded an app to backup your sms, and apps you can just reinstall from the Play Store unless you got them from another source .

    Not sure why the fixing tips are all erased, but OK, I'll figure it out myself, I suppose.

    I was able to slip Agat's recovery on via Odin 1.85 and make a nandroid. I then nuked the phone with a full restore+root and used Titanium to restore the apps, etc. It appears to have moved back most of my stuff, but a few odds and ends, especially the discontinued LWPs, didn't make it back. There's be some more cleanup needed, but at least it's not a paperweight.

    Awesome to hear. I just restored my friends ancient Samsung Captivate yesterday after he soft bricked it trying to update via Kies. I spent the better part of a day trying to get it working. I couldn't get Odin to recognize it. Then realized after much searching that Windows 8 usb drivers were the culprit. Plugged it into a windows 7 machine and I had it restored in 5 minutes. :banghead:
