My original Droid is stuck in a boot loop where it won't load past the M logo. It loads up, shows the M logo for a little bit, then shuts itself off. This happened after trying to flash a new kernel using kernel manager. At the time I was running CM 7.1.0 Stable with the stock CM7 kernel.
I've searched the various forums and tried everything that I can to fix the issue, but to no avail. I'm hoping someone here can help me pinpoint the issue and fix it.
Things I've tried:
- Wiping the Dalvik cache
- Wiping all data
- Factory reset
- Nandroid restore
- Flashing different CM7 ROMs
- Flashing different kernels
- Formatting my SD card
- Booting without the SD card
- Flashing the stock .sbf files using RSDLite one at a time starting with the most current (FRG83G) and working my way backwards. None of the stock files worked UNTIL I flashed ESE81. ESE81 works fine and is currently loaded onto my phone.
If I allow the OTA update of FRG01B to be installed on top of ESE81 I get the boot loop again.
I read where someone else had an issue with their internal partitions being formatted improperly and I'm wondering if I have a similar issue. I'm also wondering if the ESEXX builds handle internal partitions differently than FRGXXX builds and that's why the ESEXX builds work on my phone when nothing else does.
I should also note that I have never used sbd shell so if the solution requires that tool, it will have to be explained to me.
Any suggestions? Things I haven't tried that I should try?
