    Hi all,

    i've recently installed Cyanogenmod 12.1 (Lollipop 5.1.1) on my S3 mini, installed the google apps and everything worked fine so far.

    Yesterday i've performed a factory reset and the device stopped working with a TWRP Boot Loop. The TWRP Screen ist just blinking and i cannot access recovery console. I only can access download mode. So i cannot use odin for re-flashing it since i cannot clear cache etc.

    I'm unsure what to do next to get it working again - is this a known problem with factory resets?
    Any hints on this issue?

    Thank you very much.

    Best,

    Klaus

    It happened to me as well. Do the following:
    - Shut down the device holding the power button
    - connect your device with a pc/mac/whatever
    - boot with POWER + VOLUME DOWN
    - download cwm (clockworkmod) recovery
    - boot cwm with this command: fastboot boot nameofthecwmrecovery.img
    - have cwm complete the factory reset

    If you can access download mode, you can flash with Odin. You don't have to clear anything to flash a recovery or a ROM.

    This is the only solution for me.
    I flashed cwm over Twrp and its ok.
    None of other suggestions work. Thanks mate

    I ran into this same problem and could't find a solution that worked for me. Fastboot kept saying that it could find my device. After some research I finally got it working, so for future reference here's what I did:

    1. Downloaded the (non-touch) .img clockworkmod recovery file from clockworkmod rommanager site (for Galaxy S3 Mini)

    2. Ran this script (can't post links so search google for "[Script][Tool] how to create a tar.md5 file from img For Odin") to convert this into a .tar file Odin could open.

    3. Used Odin with PDA to write the .tar file to the phone.

    4. Restarted the phone inside clockworkmod recovery.

    5. Success.

    Hoje consegui resolver problema acima. Loop no teamwin(TWRP) apos cyanogenmod 12.1. A única forma que consegui colocar aparelho em modo download foi essa. Abaixo no link

    No need to enter the download mode, just leave the teamwin screen loop!

    I had the same problem, here is a help

    1. Download the program "Minimal ADB and Fastboot"
    2. Connect your phone to your computer
    3. Open the ADB and Fastboot Minimal
    4. Type in cmd in the program will open: "adb reboot recovery" without quotes and enter.
    5. Type in cmd in the progam will open: "adb reboot bootloader" without quotes and enter.
    6. Wait, your phone will reboot and see if it worked.

    I hope this helps

    Same trouble here.... Cyanogenmod 12.1 + factory reset= teamwin-loop.

    You can't recovery boot or download boot?

    Try hardware download mode with USB Jig plug. you can buy it at amazon or ebay, or you can do it your own.

    It's really simply. Believe it works!

    No need to enter the download mode, just leave the teamwin screen loop and make the commands that I quoted above.

    I tried this same solution I have seen on another blog. But in my case it did not work .. The only solution that worked for me, is JIG PLUG. But thanks.

    Hi Thankyou so much. The first command worked for me. But the second one did not worked. But thankfully I was able to get into the TEAMWIN menu n I backed up my BOOT and SYSTEM. then I tried bootloader, and I went to HBOOT n REBOOT , it took me to the black screen again.
    Can you give me any solution?
