So I finally decided to try out a ROM. I made a backup using Rom Manager. Then used Rom Manager to install the Rom. I wiped everything, but forgot to put the Rom on the external sdcard so it failed. I decided to just restore my backup, which seemed like it worked fine until I got:
Invalid Flash Mode (S) (Boot Failure)
OK to Program
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop): Invalid SP Data
Invalid CG HAB (CG: webtop, status: 0x004E)
Invalid CG OTV (CG: webtop)
I know how to unbrick my phone. The question is why did restoring a backup brick my phone? I am on 5.9.901. This really makes me miss my D1, things were so easy then. I used to flash things and restore all the time.
