    I was on Stock 905. Did the update. When it finally came up, no radios were working, phone not working, home screen not working. Everything completely slow and lagging. I decided to try to do a factory reset and all that comes up is the dead Android guy with an exclamation point on his stomach.
    Been waiting for 6 months with crappy data for this?? So sick of this stupid phone.

    Press both volume buttons. Perform another factory reset and then reboot system in the same menu. If this doesnt work, you may need to reinstall the update.

    It will not even allow me to factory reset. I hold both power buttons down, choose recovery option and the dead android man just sits there. No option for reset comes up.

    After you choose recovery and the "dead android man" shows up, you have to press both volume buttons again to see the recovery options.

    Mine did the same thing & clearing the cache & data in recovery mode cleared it up & allowed it to boot properly.

    I did the factory reset, but bunch of things funky. google accounts not syncing properly, apps not downloading, etc.
    Very frustrating

    Won't reset---totally screwed after update

    after ICS update today my phone is unusable. apps and gmail working very slow or not at all. Gmail will not sync nor the gmail widget, etc.

    so I move on to start the phone over with reset and then get the ICS update with a clean phone and no apps in the way.

    There is a constant kindle app trying to install or update I can't get rid of...not sure if it's interfering with reset.

    I try to reset and "Erase everything" and nothing happens. I can't even reset the phone after rebooting over and over. the reset will not effect a reset.

    Any ideas on how to get my reset to occur????

    If nothing I'll take it to V tomorrow and ask for help.

    It's an old phone I gave my wife since she lost her phone. But now it's hardly usable period.

    I'm getting the same issue as the OP except I used HoB.

    Followed the instructions in DOS window for the HoB 9 file.


    Eventually Bionic showed green Adroid with spinning blue tetrahedron and a progress bar. Bar filled all the way and phone rebooted with startup sound. Phone is on with a black screen with lit up buttons. Phone rebooted again with startup sound. Phone is on with a black screen with lit up buttons. Screen is flickering but still black, buttons are lighting up and turning off and alternating. Occasionally getting quick vibration feedback. Holding power does nothing.


    Did a battery pull. Powered on. Same thing.

    What did I do wrong? :(

    I'm glad I didn't experience this issue when I finally got my update.

    I am so sorry but I am confused as hell. I believe I have an idea on how to FXZ but I'm missing some details. As far as I know I go into AP fastboot on my phone, open RSD Lite 5.7 and then I'm supposed to open an ICS .246 file within RSD and that's what Im confused about. I have an .exe file I got from HoB called, "SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic_FXZ_(6.7.246).exe" but when I run it it drops a folder titled "SamuriHL_HouseOfBionic" with a bunch of files in it. And from here my brain stops working.
