Moto-G not booting/ recovery not working/ not doing factory reset
TRIED AND FAILED
Force restart or reboot:
a) Press and hold the Power button for 7 – 10 seconds
b) Press and hold the Power Button for a full 120 seconds while connected to a charger.
a) Use "volume down" to try options. I finally had to try "recovery" > Android on its back > try the "volume down" and ower buttons again till you get another menu
b) Pick factory reset, and deleted data (then option to reboot. Tried. NO RESULTS. Kept making sound as if twas trying to restart, but stopped each time.
SIM card replacement
It has been suggested on some websites that a faulty SIM card could be the cause of the problem. Actually, that was not the issue in this case.
THIS IS WHAT I GET WHEN I TRY TO RESTART:
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
CPU MSM8226 CS
eMMC: 16 GB Sandisk RV=06 pv = 07 ty =17
DRAM: 1024MB Hynix S4 SDRAM DI=4GB
Device is LOCKED, Status Code: 0
Connect USB Data Cable
