    Well, with apologies for how long this has been taking, I think we may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. :)

    So, to clarify, when you said that the factory reset wouldn't work, you were doing it from the settings, and when you tried to do it manually it wouldn't work because your phone bootlooped on the M. Makes sense now.

    Go to the market and download ROM Manager. Install it, open it, scroll to the bottom, attempt to Flash Alternate Recovery. If you can't then go back to the top, flash Clockwork Recovery, then go back down and flash alternate recovery. I want SPRecovery on that phone for the next couple of steps. :)

    I can't log into the android market. The original owner of this phone has his email linked to it and it asks for the password which I don't have and of course he will not give.

    Right.

    My apologies, I forgot that part. That's okay, though, because you can download and install ROM Manager from another source, provided you have Astro working. If not we'll have to find you another one.

    Download this directly to your phone.

    Assuming it downloads okay we'll figure out how to get it installed. :) If it doesn't we'll see about getting something on there so we can get it installed. :D

    SWEET! :woot::woot::woot:

    Now, open it, scroll to the bottom, attempt to Flash Alternate Recovery. If you can't then go back to the top, flash Clockwork Recovery, then go back down and flash alternate recovery. I want SPRecovery on that phone for the next couple of steps. :)

    You rebooted into recovery? Good. I was going to try to fix SPRecovery in memory for you, since you're already rooted, but...

    Do a factory reset. Do it three times. Heck, do it once more for luck. Now reboot the phone. You should have to sign back in. Oh, and if you're still rooted after you reboot then you can just enjoy it. We'll get you the latest version, etc, to make sure you're running hot, clean, and loose. :D

    Ah, I see what you mean. Sorry.

    Yes, you put SPRecovery on the phone. Now, to fix it in memory so you stay rooted (you can unroot later if you choose to), or if you are 100% sure you'll never want to tether, etc, we can see about doing the factory reset. If, when we boot into recovery this time, it still won't go we'll have to get back into ROM Manager and flash both recoveries a couple times.

    Okay. Reboot into recovery. If that doesn't work we'll take more aggressive measures. :)

    Once you get into recovery do a 3x factory reset. We want this thing CLEAN.

    Sorry this took so long. If I'd diagnosed the problem earlier we could have tried that route instead of the SBF.

    Do it a total of 3 times, then reboot the phone. You should have to sign back in at that point.
