Issue: Woke up to phone dead (as in the battery), I plugged into wall outlet and phone started into boot loop. Only get to the "M" and reboots. ROM: Ultimate Droid 9.8, with the UD Stock Kernel. ROM Modifications: Changed the boot animation yesterday to "Android peeing on Apple" from this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/36447-new-droid-peeing-apple-boot-animation.html Used terminal to install using these commands. su mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system dd if=/sdcard/bootanimation.zip of=/system/media/bootanimation.zip Reboot Things I have tried to resolve: I first tried to do a battery pull then reboot. This only resulted in same bootloop. I tried to boot into SPRecovery and flash Nandroid backup of UD 9.8. Resulted in bootloop. I tried to restore backup with wipe data/ factory reset and wipe cache. Still resulted in bootloop. I tried not only my Nandroid backup but the origanal Nandroid I used to go to UD 9.8 I have tried to flash to a Nadroid of DroidMod. Resulted in bootloop. (I have restored my Nandroid of UD 9.8, but it is still in bootloops) Things I am in Process of doing: I am currently going to download the SDK so I may use ADB. As I know I will have to use it I am sure. So I have a few questions before I down load. Question 1: I am going to download from the links in this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-help/30464-how-adb-why-i-love-adb-commands-3-a.html is this what I need? Question 2: In the Moto USB and Charging link there is to pc charging driver links, what one do I use? (BTW I have XP for a opporating system) Question 3: On the Android SDK what all do I need to download from that page? There is things for eclipse and so on... do I need that? Last but not least once I down load and have everything installed what do I do from there? I hope I outlined my issue in a clear discription. And I hope some one can and will help me get this going. And please only respond if you know what you are doing. I need this thread on topic, direct, and to the point. Thank you in advance for help.
