Hi J ....it sounds like you will need to do hard reset.this may be due to the latest app you installed or a failed update from google.
first... Switch off the tablet.....second hold the power button and volume up together for at least ten seconds....third let the tablet do what it does till you see the android robot with red triangle....wait....then input from the menu offered ....usually you will need to reset the tablet to factory install.this is a pain but in future disable auto updates if you can.. Tell it to let you manually install.once you have the tablet back sign into you google play account.that should remember your purchases and help you reinstall .unfortunately you will lose all the private info and pictures.for what it's worth if you do decide to make another pattern draw it on some paper and photograph on another device.please vote if this helps you.have a nice weekend.
So I guess nothing else to do but to get it to boot from a SD card with Android 4.1 on the SD Card, It appears your's is corrupted, there is a number of sites where you can download along with directions to make an Android boot card. Hope this gets you up and running.
A hard reset is a last resort, by doing a hard reset you will start all over (pending your skills) you will loose all aps/ data you may have had. Remember the basics on a soft reset you need to hold volume up button and then hold power on button it takes some time for the unit to boot, this is intentional.
You will likely have to reset your tablet to it's factory settings using the key sequence.. it'll mean you'll have to re-load your data and programs but you'll have your tablet back. Been there more than once... Oh well.. here's the procedure:
Press both the volume up key and the power button key to turn the tablet off completely. Once it's off, press down the power button and the volume key together. Release the power key and hold the volume up key until the "Factory Reset Menu" appears. It looks kind of like a robot with it's chest hatch open. Use your volume up and down buttons to move the selection to "Factory Reset" and press the power button to select it. The tablet will reset itself and you'll be back to a brand new tablet.
