    Odd Boot Issue - Liberty Gingerbread 0.8- Bad situation

    I was running the latest stable Froyo Liberty release and I installed GB via the toolbox and all went well except I'm stuck at the boot screen and then after awhile it goes to bootstrapper. At this point I don't know what to do. Luckily I did do a full back up and I saved it to my SD card so if I install that and try GB again will it hurt anything? Also what is SD:Card:Update.zip I noticed it in bootstrapper. Also thanks for your help I've been installing liberty pain free the last couple of releases and I haven't had any experiences troubleshooting.

    Thanks.

    I went back to liberty 2.0 and SBF'd and now when I boot up I get the "M" logo and the then it goes to the liberty logo and doesn't do anything after that. Any advice?

    If what you're saying is that you tried to install Liberty GB over Liberty 2.0.1, you can't do it like that. Please read everything below before you actually do anything.

    How to go from Liberty 2.0.1 to LGB:

    What you'll need (google these if you don't have/can't find them):
    1. z4root.1.3.0.apk
    2. Droid 2 Recovery Bootstrap v1.0.0.3.apk (Note the Droid 2, not Droid X.)
    3. RSD Lite 4.9
    4. VRZ_MB810_2.3.34_1FF_01.sbf
    5. TBH's 2-part Rooted GB .596 (You'll find these here: http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/d...-everyone.html - find File Part 1 and File Part 2.)
    6. Liberty GB 0.8
    7. --A 100% CHARGED BATTERY.--

    1. Copy the apk files, TBH zips and Liberty 0.8 to your SD card.
    2. Install RSD Lite 4.9 on your PC (Windows only. If you don't have Windows, let us know.)
    3. Put your phone in bootloader mode by turning it off then holding down volume down + camera button + power until you see white text on black background. (You might have to release after a few seconds and click the power button once really quickly to get the screen to come up.)
    4. Connect your phone to your computer via USB.
    5. Run RSD Lite 4.9.
    6. Select your phone (it's the only item in the table), then select ... to choose the SBF file you downloaded, then click Start. Wait for your phone to reboot.
    -- Problems: 1. If your phone doesn't show up in RSD Lite, let us know. 2. Your phone may get stuck in a boot loop. If it does, hold down the home key to get into stock recovery then wipe data/factory reset. If your phone gets to this point, the SBF was successful whether RSD Lite tells you it was or not.
    7. Don't activate your phone. Press the 4 corners of the screen from the top left clockwise (bottom corners ABOVE the on-screen buttons) to skip activation.
    8. Enable unknown sources in applications and USB Debugging in applications->development
    9. Install and run z4 Root, should reboot your phone. If it doesn't do it yourself.
    10. Install Droid 2 Bootstrap, then Bootstrap Recovery, then Reboot Recovery. Phone should reboot into clockwork mod.
    11. Install Part 1 of TBH's rooted GB, then Part 2, then LGB 0.8.
    12. Wipe data/factory reset.

    Let us know how it goes. :)

    An SBF does not delete your data. After performing an SBF, you need to go into stock recovery and factory reset.

    Thanks for your post!

    All was going well but after I installed parts one and two I went to go into bootstrap to flash liberty 0.8 and bootstrap wont load it just comes up with a blank screen and I need to battery pull.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT- If I download Liberty 0.8 via the tool box or boot up while plugged in I still get the same result.

    EDIT2- NVM got it to work and I am finally on Liberty 0.8 now I know exactly what to do in the future! Thanks for all your help you guys really have a lot of patience!
