the last resort would be taking the phone to a lab so they can replace my emmc, that would be costly then I prefer try all possible methods before I do that hehe
we're on it and will drop an update @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-439.html
I have breaking discovery
I just realized the 5069 no space error means exactly what it says: there is no space on the emmc!
I clearly remember before my phone died, I ran a disk tool which said 98% full memory (that is when the system apps started to fail one after another, which forced me to reboot, and that is when I entered the boot loop)
now, I remember when I did the factory reset and cleared emmc (from both factory mode and recovery mode), it showed the animated android bot under surgery, and then the phone rebooted itself after exactly 120seconds, back to the boot loop (without going back to recovery screen) it was already then that I assumed that factory reset operatio failed / did not complete (i tried this procedure for maybe 10 times and the exact same results)
now, the breaking discovery, is that when I did the factory reset on my cousin's device, it behaved exactly the same way my phone did (rebooted after exactly 120 sec back to the frozen logo without going back to recovery screen)
but, after I flashed the rom back and everything worked out, I just noticed, surprisingly, ALL THE DATA WAS TEHRE! (and i didn't flash the "usrdata" file, only the raw system files)
from the above, I conclude that the factory reset operation, on both devices, did not do its thing (didnt wipe any data)
that is the reason why, my phone is still 98% full on memory and the reason why i kept getting the no space error!
so the obvious conclusion is that my emmc is still full! perhaps it is also faulty or has partition issues but since I now know for sure the factory reset failed, it might be both full and faulty
is there any way I can clear the emmc on my phone? (the bricked one) maybe using pc commands or something?
