I am so(XInfiniti) scared right now...I am shaking my entire life is on that phone. I have the file for APEX and would love to go back to it....since I don't want to root.....so can anyone please help me......Please........
Welcome to AF. Your phone is in a bootloop. It was caused by flashing the CM7 rom which is based on Froyo from Apex which is Gingerbread based. I hope your "entire life" is at least on the sd card
cause then it's all still there and won't be harmed during the sbf process.
If your phone has a good charge, load into bootloader mode (hold down camera and volume down and then press power button) and try using the Linux disc to sbf. It's really easy to use and comes in handy should you ever need to sbf again. This is the link to the instructions.
Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems
There is a pre-rooted version of .602 there or standard nonrooted versions. Whichever version you choose to go with, make sure to check the MD5. That's just a way to verify that the file you downloaded isn't corrupt or anything. There are plenty of free programs that can check the MD5. Just do a quick search.
3 rules for rooted phones:
1. Backup apps and data
2. Verify Backup
3. Backup apps and data
It's a good idea to always backup everything after you've rooted your phone. Making a nandroid is also a good idea. That way, data isn't completely lost should something like this happen. There are many ways to do that. I personally use Titanium Backup.
Hope everything works out for you. If you have anymore questions, ask away.
