Phone stuck in bootloop and app broken
I just got my NFC ring working yesterday after lots of trouble getting it to register on my phone. As with other S3 users, putting any kind of thicker silicon case on the phone means that the NFC ring can't be picked up. So I took it off, found my sweet spot etc.
The ring was working great until just now the phone crashed. Now it's entering boot loops until I take the battery out whenever the ring is used, or even when the lock screen has just been there for a while.
I assume this is something to do with the wallpaper feature, which worked fine before now.
When I refrain from using the ring and get to the NFC unlock app, I find it's completely had it. Doesn't work at all. Asks me to register my ring, which I've done and doesn't give me the option to put my details in again as it still requests to be unlocked my my existing ring - thankfully I had the sense to put a pin on this as I KNEW something would go wrong that would lead me to be locked out - I don't care what you say, you shouldn't be encouraging users to make this the only way to get into their phones, for something so new and potentially haphazard I can see users very easily being locked out of phones because of a bug like this.
I understand the feature doesn't work and just want to get back to where I was without doing anything drastic.
