    hey i have come to the conclusion that i have ruined my recovery image and need help fixing it. my phone wont go into recovery nor boot up completely. it is stuck on the boot animation. my current rom is ONIX 1.2.5

    thanks,

    Even with your phone in Boot (Power and Up on D-Pad)? Well, will it go into the Boot screen?

    see if booting while plugged into usb and computer makes a difference. just try to boot normal and let it sit a few.
    friend and I noticed this worked a few times on his phone. no idea why, battery was full each time.

    know its a handful but i dont know what to do should i redownload sprecovery.

    Read through the 3rd link in my signature. There is a bunch of good info in that thread. Most problems encountered are covered there.

    You've got me confused. I think this is what you want to do
    1) you have Pete's 2.1 stock rom.
    2) you used RSD Lite to get to step 1 so that is already installed and functional
    3) you need sprecovery. You flash that into place.
    4) you then back up your current install incase something goes wrong. You use SPRecovery to do so.
    5) You wipe all your data and cache.
    6) You install the rom of your choice, which looks like it is "even more froyo".

    When you install a new rom you get whatever kernel comes with it. You can proceed to install a different kernel if you want, but you've wiped all your data to get the new rom installed. The previous kernel gets flushed with the rom.

    Your apps are supposed to come back from the market in time. This doesn't seem to work for everyone everytime, including me. Or maybe I'm just not patient enough. Astro is a free method of backing up all your install programs so you don't have to remember what you had nor have to go to the market to install each one. There are paid apps in the market that backup your apps as well. Finally, some roms have built in backup tools, but I imagine that's only good when moving from one version of that rom to another (though I may be mistaken).

    If your nandroid restore was not complete then perhaps your backup wasn't complete. I have yet to hear of SPRecovery only doing a partial restore and having the rom be functional. I imagine your reinstall of SPRecovery probably did not help.

    It sounds like you wiped all your data and did not make a backup before installing the new rom. If your setup is truly messed up then you can use an update.zip or an sbf file to get back to stock, take the upgrade to 2.1 and then start over only this time making backups. It may be just as easy going back into the market and regrabbing the apps you don't have. Going back to stock means you may have to grab them anyways if the market doesn't auto-download them for you.

    I made a simple nandroid backup right before and if I use the sbf file to get back sprecovery does that delete everything in the ram

    Thx in advance

    SPRecovery is one of the boot-recovery apps available that can replace the the stock recovery tool that can be accessed while booting up the phone. It is used to "recover" the phone and in doing so the replacement ones can replace the stock recovery rom with rooted and non-rooted roms that are not stock ones.

    Installing SPRecovery only replaces that stock tool. It does not replace your stock rom, Replacing it also will not replace whatever rom is on your phone. Nothing on your card, where your backups are stored, gets touched in any of the rooting, sbf flashing, rom installing processes.
