    Hi, Was running Chevys SS 5.2. Wanted to try another kernel. Directions said I had to use SPR recovery which I HATE!!! Normally use CW or RZ. No Nandroid backup only CW back up. Kernel didnt take. I now have am stuck in SPR recovery with no backup. Any ideas?

    Put another kernel on the sdcard or load another ROM.

    Haven't used SPR in quite a while ... can you mount the SD card while in recovery? If you can, you could try d/l'ing and installing another kernel (or ROM).

    I know with both CW and RZR you can mount the SD card so I'd assume you can with SPR.

    Hope you get it squared away!

    I think he's saying it won't boot into android (bootloop).

    ...got it, get RZRecovery to the root of your SD and flash it, it has the ability to restore CW Backups

    My bad forgot to mention I'm stuck on M via the rename to update.zip I had to use SPR recovery. Kernel didn't take though. I have other kernels and even the SS 5.2 rom on the SD which it will enable me to enable mass storage. So I have to option of opening and viewing the SD card. So from that asppect how do I reinstall the Rom or another kernel. Also has option to wipe and factory reset. Will that take away my root?

    If you have the ROM on your SD mount it in sprecovery then connect to your computer, rename it update.zip and flash with no wipe and see if that corrects the kernel issue.
