boot loop

so my phone is boot looping, no idea why. I was just sitting watching tv and then I noticed it boot looping. I've tried safe mod and it still did it. I tried to clear cache through recovery and I can't get the stupid menu to select recovery.  I'm starting to get angry with this because I have to work in a few hours and I need my phone for work. Anyone got any ideas on how to get this to stop.

Re: boot loop

Did you try a Hard reset? Power button and volume down for 10 seconds.

Re: boot loop

Does the simulated battery pull work?  power button + vol down button for 10+ seconds

Re: boot loop

If what those two said doesn't work, try removing the memory card and trying again.

Re: boot loop

If you can get into recovery, why don't you just do a wipe data?

Re: boot loop

You won't lose anything on the SD card or internal memory. Those shouldn't be formatted. You really only lose your set up. It can be a pain to set things back up, but you should have a working phone. Hope this helps.
