Hey guys. Need some help. I consider myself to be reasonably competent with handling issues I cause on my droid. So I have been able to correct all my mistakes until now.
Had UD8 running nice and stable for a few days with the 928 BG theme. Was ready to try a CVPCS kernel to see how it played with UD8 on my phone. As usual I made my backups first my SMS, then TI Backup, then SPR full nandroid. Switch to Clockwork in order to make a 2nd backup thinking it was smart to have restore options incase I have a problem. I ran a full backup in CW and walked away for 2 mins to take my laundry out of the dryer. Came back on the phone was off and would not turn back on. Was like WTF!
I think no problem pull the battery and reboot. Well it comes back...but it is sloooow. Nothing is responding, and I start seeing some force closes. CRAP! So I boot into recover and just get that yellow triangle with an exclamation that tells you the phone has not installed recovery. So I reboot the phone again and wait until I can get rom manager to load (it was the only tool I had needed to switch recoveries before this) and flashed SPR so I could restore my one good backup. Halfway through ROM Manager crashes. My ability to download was totally crippled and I was just getting error (although this had started before this problem and I have since fixed this). So luckily I had DM Updater on my SD (maybe in the future BD could preinstall the ability to flash recovery), and used it to flash SPR.
I thought great problems solved. But not really. I did a restore, and continued to have issues like stalls, force closing, phone locking up as well as complete crash and reboot.
So I thought...lets just start over. I flashed an unrooted version of 2.2 with stock recovery and did a full factory reset. Reactivated the phone, let it restore itself as much as google does, and once it was ready I rerooted and installed UD8 clean from the original download file from BD.
Did not fix. Although I have to admit it could be a coincidence none of this happened until I did that backup in CW. And the fact that my actions did not fix...have me stumped. Anyone have an idea? I don't want to have to return this and then have to deal with Asurion trying to tell me all they have are Eris.
thanks guys ... and sorry for the story but figured better to tell you everything I did.
