    Hey guys.... My thunderbolt is rooted and I was just getting ready to flash the Bamf Rom when I followed these directions from Vettz first:


    Then when I tried rebooting I keep getting stuck at the white HTC screen? I tried doing a battery pull... nothing

    I also did a sd card pull and battery pull.... nothing

    I have backed up my nandroid and also copied all files to my computer, but obviously cant even get to recovery. What has happend? and how can I work around this?

    Ok think I got this thing figured out.

    Did a battery pull then held down vol while long pressing the power button then I got to CW. Booted to recovery and did a restore on my backup rom now its starting up fine.

    But for future reference... any ideas on what caused this to happen?

    You did a data wipe which cleared off the os. This is normally done in recovery before you flash the next rom. You wiped the os and didn't replace it with a rom. Let me know if that doesn't make sense and I'll explain it a little better for you. Glad you are up and running though.

    Actually it makes perfect sense... Had a feeling that I wiped the OS. Thanks for clearing that up. (Rookie Mistake :icon_eek:)

    So as long as you make a backup with nandroid its nearly impossible to brick your phone with the Thunderbolt correct?

    I can't say 100% yes but it is pretty much that way for all Android phones. So long as you take your time and follow smart practices (doing a backup) you can change things around quite a bit and be reasonably safe.
