Thanks for the reply; I've let it run for half an hour, which seems super long. I tried the reset, but it just keeps going back to the boot up screen with the four dots, and only gets to the second one before it resets itself.
I wish I could get into the actual android screeen. but it loops in the boot menu the whole time.
I wiould like to get back to dingo, if possible and out of this terrible limbo
