    So, I got the ICS update yesterday and I was in love with my phone again, but when I turned it on after charging it was stuck in the boot animation. Looked up the problem, most people had it fixed by using the Recovery mode. Did that, phone got stuck in "Updating Android Appliations" or something like that, and now it gets stuck right after the Moto "M" comes up, and I can't get past the Droid text. I'm not quite sure what to do now. :icon_eek:

    You're not the only one with this problem. Turned my phone off, tried to turn it on and it was stuck at the "Droid" screen. I popped my battery out, took out the SD card and SIM, replaced them and tried to power on once more. Still stuck. Did a reboot, same thing happened. Did a frickin' factory reset and it started downloading ICS, but now it is stuck at "Android is upgrading...starting applications". It's been like that for over an hour. I'm so frustrated with this phone, I don't know how something so basic as powering a phone off would result in this.

    I used RSD lite and tried to flash the update. Seemed successful, but its stll stuck on the Droid screen. I'm haven't a clue what to do, and I can't get a replacement as my phone got wet back in August.

    It's not a long process at all, 10 minutes maybe.

    battery have good charge? phone should read "battery ok".

    low battery not good for flashing.

    I used HoB and it went to the end (I think) when it says the radio is installing and the phone will reboot.The phone didn't reboot, and I only have the AP Fastboo flash mode boot failure now.

    Edit: Yes, Ok battery

    okay, got the Boot animation to work, but still stuck there. Followed all directions. I'll re-read and try again (that won't make it worse, right?)

    I'm sure you know, after an update like ICS it's gonna take like 10 mins to finish... just in case you didn't know..

    No, I'm here:


    SamuriHL's House of Bionic 9.2

    FLASH MODE: RSD

    Ready to flash FXZ...

    WARNING: RSD may appear and disappear several times during flashing.
    DO NOT PANIC. This is normal.

    NOTE: Your phone must be in AP Fastboot

    Continue when ready to start flashing
    Press any key to continue . . .
    Flashing HouseOfBionic_FXZ.xml
    1 file(s) copied.
    erasing 'cache'... OKAY [ 0.018s]
    Flashing HouseOfBionic_WEBTOP.xml
    1 file(s) copied.
    Flashing HouseOfBionic_RADIO.xml
    1 file(s) copied.


    But it reboot my phone and it's stuck on the droid screen again. HoB hasn't done anything in about 25 minutes.
