    Greeting all,

    I just got my S7 from BB yesterday by a member's tips here and enjoyed it so far. You guys are great and helpful! :)

    But I ran into a scenario of not being able to power off a few times already so I had to remove the battery completely and restart it agian. I search this forum and couldn't find any hints on this. I haven't rooted the device yet. Can anyone help me ? Maybe I got a lemon one ? :confused:

    Thanks,

    JR

    With the screen on and unlocked you should be able to hold down the button on the top right corner for about two seconds and then on the screen should come three options with one being to shut down.

    If that is the case then your tablet is not preforming normally.

    Reflashing a new ROM might fix the problem. It is not without risk though.

    Certainly sounds like your device is defective. I've had my hung to the point of having to remove the battery maybe two or three times in the last three months. This typically associated with connecting or disconnecting the S7 to the charger with the battery in a depleted state. One other thing you might want to check however is whether the issue is associated with an added external microSD card. If you have a defective card then that could possibly cause hangs during the process of scanning and readying the card for use during bootup. If you don't have an external microSD card installed, then obviously disregard. Good luck.

    Chances are that a factory reset will take care of this. Pulling the battery on an running Android system can really screw it up.

    I try to follow the instructions in the sticky and have a question about the following steps. Could you elaborate it more and how to get ADB or Emulator ?

    Thanks,
    JR

    Perform a Factory Reset
    Via ADB:
    1. connect your device
    2. type adb shell reboot recovery

    Via Terminal Emulator on Device
    1. open Terminal Emulator
    2. type su
    3. at the # type reboot recovery

    Never Mind. I found out an instruction from another thread to completely reflash my S7. It's working fine now. It is indeed very helpful. :)

    Performing a True Full Reset


    Thanks,
    JR

    Not sure how pulling the battery will screw things up, as all system files are read only

    Pete, on the move...
