It sounds like someone reset or try to flash firmware without removing the lock, if the phone will only boot to the download screen then you will have to reflash the firmware and then enter the last lock screen pin to make the phone boot providing that it has no other issues stopping it from booting.
Hi! Thanks for your reply. No attempt was made to flash the ROM or FR prior to the bootloop issue.
Wouldn't I have to remove the FRP lock before attempting to flash the firmware?
Is there anyway to have the FRP lock removed within this bootloop?
Thanks for all the input! It is most appreciated. I actually bought the Dr.Fone "System Repair" product,but it failed to yeild any results. Do you think Odin or some other site would be able to solve the issue. I am pretty sure that the Dr.Fone product attempted to flash the firmare, but was unsuccessful.
