I need help getting back to stock rom!
I know that i have posted this on xda forums a couple of hours prior, but I really need this fixed so I'm "branching" out to the droid forums as well.
Dear Who ever the Awesome person is who is helping me,
Before Spring Break, I rooted my droid bionic using motofail for windows. I do not know what the software version is. On Thursday March 28, 2012 I decided to try installing ROMs to my Droid Bionic. I saw that Liberty Rom, Blurr3d Rom, and Eclipse Rom were cool roms. so first, I got Bootstrap. Bootstrap is a .apk file. I also got ROM manager, titanium backup, and one more, but i do not recall what it was. I made a backup of the stock ROM with ROM manager. and i installed bootstrap. little did i know that if something bad happens to the phone during a ROM install, you cannot restore a previous backup. So i cannot get my stock ROM back on. later on, before i had a problem with bootsrap i installed liberty ROM. then i got board with it then got blurr3d. then i got eclipse ROM. that's when i started to have problems. After i installed the eclipse ROM, noticed that i could not get any cell service or data service. I could get data from wifi though. So i freaked out and got liberty ROM. i read up on it and someone said i should get safestrap. Safestrap is like bootstrap but it is safer because you can access the recovery menu from boot and not have to access it through an application on the phone like with bootstrap. So after i got safestrap i installed it, rebooted it and made a back up. Before i made the backup i put plurr3d back on becasue i thought that the radio files from eclipse were not compatible with the radios on the bionic for some reason. This was all on Thursday. well, this time, it took 3-4 hours for blurr3d to get passed the welcome to andorid please touch the android to continue screen. on the screen it said, "please wait... this may take a few mins" after about 20 mins i got worried so I pulled the battery and rebooted the phone. and got back to the same screen. After i got back to the welcome to android screen, i had to go to football practice and dinner afterwards. when i got home, which was 3-4 hours later, I checked on the phone and it was past that screen and i was able to add my gmail account to it. For some reason or another, the cell and data services were not working. so i left it at that for a day or so and on Friday, I tried using what a lot of people are saying on the Internet which is, RSD lite. you can use RDS lite to flash a stock ROM onto the droid bionic. at that point, i thought that if i got the stock ROM back on, the radios would start working again. well, when I put the phone into fastboot mode it said,
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
OK to Program
It also said the same thing when i connected the USB cable to the phone and the computer. RSD lite did not recognize the phone so i tried for a couple hours with the same result. Later on, I read that restarting the computer with the phone in AP Fastboot while the phone was plugged in would get the phone to say,
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
OK to Program
This worked, but RSD lite still would not recognize the phone. So then i remembered that i had a stock ROM backup with bootstrap and i did. so i un-installed safestrap (one of the worst mistakes i made so far) and installed bootstrap. so i booted into recovery via bootstrap to restore to stock ROM. things did not go as planned... for some reason or another, it booted up normally. without going to recovery. then it wont to the dual core screen then the bionic eye screen with someone's ROM underneath it (it didn't say someones ROM but it said some one's name then the word ROM) then blurr3d ROM booted up and it kept crashing. so i ended up staying up to around 2-4 AM trying to fix that. i ended up saying forget this and going to sleep.
When i woke up in the morning, i looked at the phone and i had my data and my cell service back so i was confused so i started texting my friends and when i tried to go tot he home screen, nothing happens. but what i learned earlier is that when i reboot the phone, my data and cell service goes away for a couple of hours. So here i am now with my droid bionic, and cant do anything but text and call. i can only call when i get a text from someone, open up the text, and click on the phone number and click call when it brings me to the contact page for the number. i really need my phone to use email, games, software (learning how to write java code), and for school in some instances. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you for your time,
