I've looked up and down, left and right, and still haven't seen anyone with this particular problem.
I rooted my phone using RSDlite and uploading the sbf with SPRecovery.
Then pushed the SU and Superuser.
Everything went fine after a few tries. Phone booted, made a simple backup.
A few days later I installed a LV Chevy kernel to overclock, no problems.
A few weeks later I was playing with Themes and I got it locked up. Did a simple restore of the only backup I had ever made (lessen learned) and the phone would only boot to the "M" logo. Tried several times with same result. As I was freaking out, I noticed I still had the Chevy kernel update.zip in the root directory, so I figured what the heck and installed it again. Voila, I'm fully opperational again...backup, backup. Ignore until later
Later: I was playing with the 2.2 nandroid backup, trying to get it to work and found that I still cannot get a restore to take without loading Chevy's kernel. I even tried to restore the 2.2 and install a p3 kernel with no luck.
Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
