    Long Story. SP will not allow me to do a factory wipe. All my backups are in CW. If I can get to my SD card, and my backups, can it be restored that way? I need my phone desperately in like 15 minutes.

    You can mount your SD while in SPR, that much I know ... maybe do that then go to one of your CW backups and try renaming it to update.zip and moving it to the root of the SD card, then try installing it that way?
    Not sure if that's doable being I have never tried - just throwing ideas out there trying to help.

    I installed the Rom on the SD card as "update" then used SP to install it. It took me back to factory new, but after signing in, I flashed Clockwork and installed my latest backup. Thankd for your assistance! I really appreciate your efforts.

    You know, if it were happening to me I probably wouldn't have thought of it either :laugh:

    Yeah, I was too busy deciding if jumping off the roof was the best option:)
