    Stuck in Boot Loop! Please Help me fix it please.

    Issue:
    Woke up to phone dead (as in the battery), I plugged into wall outlet and phone started into boot loop. Only get to the "M" and reboots.

    ROM:
    Ultimate Droid 9.8, with the UD Stock Kernel.

    ROM Modifications:
    Changed the boot animation yesterday to "Android peeing on Apple" from this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...animation.html
    Used terminal to install using these commands.
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    dd if=/sdcard/bootanimation.zip of=/system/media/bootanimation.zip
    Reboot

    Things I have tried to resolve:
    I first tried to do a battery pull then reboot. This only resulted in same bootloop.

    I tried to boot into SPRecovery and flash Nandroid backup of UD 9.8. Resulted in bootloop.

    I tried to restore backup with wipe data/ factory reset and wipe cache. Still resulted in bootloop.

    I tried not only my Nandroid backup but the origanal Nandroid I used to go to UD 9.8

    I have tried to flash to a Nadroid of DroidMod. Resulted in bootloop. (I have restored my Nandroid of UD 9.8, but it is still in bootloops)

    Things I am in Process of doing:
    I am currently going to download the SDK so I may use ADB. As I know I will have to use it I am sure. So I have a few questions before I down load.

    Question 1:
    I am going to download from the links in this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...mands-3-a.html is this what I need?

    Question 2: In the Moto USB and Charging link there is to pc charging driver links, what one do I use? (BTW I have XP for a opporating system)

    Question 3:
    On the Android SDK what all do I need to download from that page? There is things for eclipse and so on... do I need that?

    Last but not least once I down load and have everything installed what do I do from there? I hope I outlined my issue in a clear discription. And I hope some one can and will help me get this going. And please only respond if you know what you are doing. I need this thread on topic, direct, and to the point. Thank you in advance for help.

    Also...download a clean version of http://www.regalgs.net/droid/Ultimat...0-Nextheme.zip . right click the file and rename (only change the "UltimateDroid_9.8.0-Nextheme" and replace it with "update" so before you hit enter it should say update.zip (IF you are on Windows 7 this will be different and you will leave of the .zip part I believe)

    Boot into recovery
    - mount options->Enable USB Mass Storage
    - when the drive loads to the PC and you open the folder to explore...you should see everything on your sdcard
    - copy the file named "update.zip" to the root (main) menu of your sdcard.
    - once it has finished copying -> disable USB Mass Storage.

    open cmd promt window on your pc and launch adb shell
    - when it opens you should see a "#"
    - if not tell us what you did exactly and what you see so we can help
    - once you see the # the rest should work... (in each case you should get a response in the following line essentially repeating back what you typed (and in some cases like formatting will tell you it is complete)
    type
    Code:
    su
    sysrw
    format:SYSTEM
    format:BOOT
    sysrw
    exit
    Then make sure you back out to the main menu in SPrecovery

    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition

    *REPEAT ALL*

    Then go to

    Install->Allow update.zip->Install /sdcard/update.zip (depricated)

    You should be good to go!

    forget eclipse and all that other crap.

    the moto driver depends on your version of windows...32 vs 64...you have to figure that out. If you install the wrong one it will tell you and you can just download the other.

    as for what to do once you have shell up and running...

    just follow the instructions from my post above

    No I did not. I did not know that was directed for me to follow. I was thrown off with the "NexTheme" instructions since I have never used that theme nor want to use that theme.

    I only recommended that as with an update.zip...I feel I often get cleaner installs. IF you want the stock..you can apply theme after we get you going.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Yes everything did work fine yesterday. I woke up around 6am noticed my phone was not on the charger, picked it up went to turn it on and it would not turn on. I plugged it in to a wall outlet, it turned on to the Moto logo and immeaditly started into a boot loop. I have left it plugged in since that time. I have accessed the forums first via my wifes bb Storm.. I am currently able to access via a laptop now as I tethered her phone.

    So I assume the phone has been charging all this time and you still get M boot loop?
