What Software Version are you on? And any more details about how it acts?

Is the issue persisting after reboot?

Hi,

there could be 2 issue for the above problem:

1. You have to run Odin3 as Administrator.

2. Phone USB drivers aren't installed. (Install drivers as administrator too).

Let us know!
See you ;-)

I see, it happened to other persons too, there must be a settings conflict.

To fix the problem follow these steps:

From recovery go to download mode, then using Odin3 flash the stock rom, you can find it here:
https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=8.0

Once on stock rom save your important data to a PC so you won't lose nothing, then do a factory reset, then root it again, this time it will work for sure.
See you ;-)

We have just uploaded a newer root kernel.
Hopefully it will solve the issue that a few have had with it bootlooping. Factory reset from stock has fixed the problem some had with the previous root, but this one hopefully takes care of any bootlooping from here on.

:)


If anyone has issue with this one please let us know asap.
Thanks!

Hi. I purchased earlier tonight and am experiencing the same bootlooping that is mentioned above. I have followed the instructions for the fix; loading a new stock rom, doing a factory reset, and re-rooting and unlocking again but my device still ends up looping after I do everything again.  FWIW, I am using Unikernel-v9-G920P_ALL_5.1.1.tar.  Any advice?

Thanks

Ok, if you have ran the unlock once the phone will remain unlocked even after reflashing stock and doing a factory reset.

I wish we could reproduce this bootloop issue but unfortunately it isn't happening on any of our devices. I flashed v6, v8, and v9 unikernel to our test SM-G925P here and all work.

Is it only bootlooping after root? Or after using a option in our software for you? I have ran all options here, rebooted, powered on manually to recovery menu and still I can't get my device to give this issue. It would be helpful if I could.

Let me know which step/action is done immediately before the bootlooping starts.
Thanks.

Also I see your email so will reply to it also :)

So i have an odd situation here. I recently purchased an S6 sprint that had been rooted and unlocked. Oh, i live and purchased it in Indonesia. I saw ur idoneapp on my phone menu, but i decided to unroot it and and took it to original setting since im just a normal user. After unrooting, the unlock worked just fine and im able to get connection etc. Now the problem is  i just got 3g and every time i pushed it to 4g lte, it came up with empty bar. Oh after unrooting, ur app was gone too. So d u have any idea what i should do. I saw ur post in xda forum, that made me realize it was ur app. Im ready if there should be a cost 😊😊. Thanks
