    phone won't boot - did wipe / factory reset via recovery mode, stuck on red eye...

    quite depressing...


    had the phone for two weeks and i already have to do a wipe and reinstall everything? this morning i uninstalled the facebook app because it was just sucking all the life out of my phone, and upon doing so, it completely bricked me and now i'm unable to get past the droid logo on boot, regardless of what i do.

    now i'm wiping and starting over...


    not. a good. sign.

    way ahead of you.

    already did a wipe data / factory reset, AND a wipe cache partition.


    now what? won't make it past the red eye!

    ok. it finally made it past the red eye, and i'm back to starting over with a fresh wipe of the phone (which is a pain in the ass)...


    any clue what might have caused this? will this happen again and i'll end up punching someone?
