Hey I have not used my droid for a long time, months since Febuary, and seeing as how every single has changed I am extremely out dated and it seems like there is no hope for me since the android community doesn't like to help those who are behind the pace.
Anyways, I was running a version of UNOFFICIAL 2.1 bugless beast, as in it was 2.0 with 2.1 features on top, I forgot the rom version.
I also had an overclock kernel from Taz, if anybody remembers him, and it was 900mhz. Phone worked perfectly fine.
Now every single guide on there is for either stock people with 2.1, or people who are already on some sort of froyo rom or whatever, people like me have no solution to the problem I have right now since my phone will not boot nor can I use RSD lite blah blah blah since the battery got killed, want to know why?
I downloaded an update.zip kernel, forgot who's it was but it was from alldroid, from about a month ago, and used sbrecovery to flash it, NOT ADB.
After that the phone got thrown into a boot loop, and the battery got killed.
Now I'm trying to figure out a way to upgrade to SOME sort of kernel or rom that would actually WORK on my phone without having it stuck in a boot loop.
Compatible kernels with compatible roms are out of the question since to upgrade to a newer rom, like let's say bugless beast, I need a bunch of new tools and a bunch of other things, since now everybody seems to be rom developers and they speak their own language that people like me just don't understand, what happened to the simple put update.zip in your sd card and update? Why do I need all these new apps that not only you need to have on your computer that I CAN'T EVEN FIND WHERE TO DOWNLOAD FROM, BUT are meant for phones that you can BOOT into, so how on earth do you guys expect me to install a compatible rom to at least fix the boot loop problem if I DONT EVEN HAVE A WAY TO INSTALL THOSE APPS thanks to my phone NOT booting.
I can't also reflash a new kernel because 1) no kernels these days are compatible with the rom I was using 2) if they're not update.zip, which wouldn't work because of #1, then they would be boot.img files which require adb, which I can't use.
So I am stuck here, and I can't get out, and nobody wants to help me, they point to me irrelevant solutions that obviously have nothing to do at all to what my problem is, and all these problems because of ONE ****ing kernel.
I'm already really pissed at how ignorant everybody is being, after you read this thread, READ IT AGAIN, so you know what my problem is EXACTLY.
I wish I could use rom manager to fix all of this, but sorry, the same problem I'm trying to fix is the same problem keeping me from doing so.
I wish I could use clockword recovery or whatever the heck you guys call it, but I have no clue what that is and it's not like anybody bothers to tell me, but it's not like I could install it anyways, my phone is stuck in a boot loop because of one kernel I flashed that sent my phone to hell.
I wish I could use rsd, but my phone's battery got killed, and it's stuck in a boot loop. I don't even know what that is as well, or what's it's used for, since it's pretty irrelevant to my problems.
