    Stuck on Android is Upgrading: Starting Applications

    I have used the ICS Tool to go back to stock 217 and I've used RSD. Every single time I get past the upgrades (37 of 37) and it then says Starting Applications, it freezes and never finishes. After that if I force a power down and power back up, I get a black screen. Ugh. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I don't know if it's a fluke, but that happened to me once. I just re-flashed the ROM I had flashed and it worked.
    Eclipse JB 1.1.1
    LiquidSmooth JB 2.3.7

    Could it be possible something on my SD card could cause this? Nothing that I know of has changed with regard to it. Here is the skinny though:

    I was running SS3 in Safe Mode and in the main Rom slot, I had AOKP's 10.22 JB 4.1.2 build. In the 2nd Rom slot, I had Eclipse 1.3.4. I kept having problems with Eclipse getting stuck in a boot loop and it was irritating me, so I decided to flash back to stock everything for a clean install.

    I had previously been running 6.16.217 in normal (unsafe) mode, but I never ever used that mode. Anyway, I flashed today around noon and have been battling ever since. Neither RDS or ICS Tools seems to work. I mean they both get through easily, error free, but then I cannot actually boot into android. I sometimes hang up on the black screen after the dual boot logo. Sometimes I hang up on "Starting Applications" I'm honestly thinking, I'm beat and I have to get a new phone.

    if i understand correctly you are not able to get into safestrap either? If you are you can wipe both internal n external from wipe menu. Maybe try booting into recovery and reset to factory...this wont erase sdcards but maybe it will help getting it to boot completely...
    mmaybe enter safe mode because it disables applications so you can troubleshoot. To get into safe mode...power down completely....hold the OOK button on ur qwerty and while holding press the power on button once...still continuing to hold OKK down until safe mode appears. i gonna try right now to verify procedure lol

    I don't have safestrap anymore either. When I installed ICS, I did a data wipe/factory reset from the Motorola recovery screen. So everything is gone.

    And it's officially history. RIP D4. It was charged 100% when all this began, but since it won't take a charge in this mode, it no longer can be flashed. There goes $300 bucks. Awesome.
