I'll check out that thread, Scotty. I haven't tried those things. But I'm must be missing a fundamental point. If I can't get into the phone at all... can't establish a data connection... and the menu items do not work at HBoot, how can I install anything or run anything? Is this something that can be done if I remove the SD card and install on it?
I'm sorry for being so dense! I'm going to go back and read the thread you mentioned above.
