Okay, I have spent all day tearing my house apart for a dell power cord.. lol No luck. But in the time, I also looked and looked and looked for more information on fixing this damn thing. Found something.
My mother in law happens to have a netbook running Windows XP.. I will be using that tonight to run SWUpdate and put CM01 back on the phone. With that, I can properly fix this darn thing.
I also figured out what I did wrong.. CM01 has three wipe options.. After looking at the guide here : [GUIDE] - How to install Custom Kernel/ROM on your Intercept using CM01 Recovery - SDX-Developers Forum
, I found out I was using the wrong wipe..
You said to select "Wipe" and "Format Cache".. I figured you meant to do a Data/Cache wipe followed by "Wipe Cache" - from this text "The rest of the ROMS you need to Factory Reset and Wipe Cache!"..
The guide made it clear.. DO NOT FACTORY RESET.
So, I need to instead do a Wipe Dalvik Cache followed by a Wipe Cache - then install the Kernel/ROM.
I think when I did the factory reset whatever was left in the Dalvik Cache was causing the phone to not boot. Since I still have access to the recovery, I'm hoping that means it isn't fully bricked.
Your thoughts before I try this? The wife leaves tomorrow for a weekend in El Paso, Texas for a wedding.. leaving me at home.. all alone.. I'd like her to have the cell for the trip. Thanks in advance for the help!
