1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hello,

    Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong area or if theres a similiar thread out there already, I'm new to the forums. My issue is that i recently tried to apply a new kernel to my droid, which seemed to be a success until i tried booting up my phone. It only makes it to the "M" logo and wont proceed to even the droid eye.

    I think the kernel i installed may have been defective or something. I can't figure out how to fix this... i tried booting to recovery, from there i cleared the cache, restored to factory, and toyed around with all those settings to see if it would do anything. It didn't.

    Also, I was careful to backup my previous kernel before I attempted applying the new one, but my droid wont even recognize that there are files there. When i select "restore" under the nandroid tab in recovery, i get an error saying "no files found" or something like that. Jeez anyone have any suggestions? lol....

    resolved

    Yeah so i managed to actually fix my phone with some more fiddling. What I ended up doing is using ANOTHER phone to access my sd card so that I could put an update.zip file in there. All i had to do was boot into recovery and apply the update and everything worked out ok.
