Default Rooted phone not booting

Got my U8800 a week ago, but now I have already destroyed it? It will not boot up, when I turn it on it just shows the Android name blinking randomly.


What happened was I rooted it with z4root because I was pretty satisfied with everything but the battery capacity, so I uninstalled the usual apps that always start an restart over again, using the “Temporary root” button.


But last time I pressed the “Permanently root” button without realizing it before it was to late. So now it just lies there blinking “Android” randomly when I start it up. What – if any – can I do? Is it totally destroyed? I cant get it to do anything, but when I connect it to the PC I at least can see some files there, like Autorun, drivers and document folders.


Thankful for replies!


-But as a pretty newbie I will need a pretty detailed guide, or at least links to different steps.

Well, I made it myself! Looked and looked around the web and finally understood that what was happening is well known as a “bootloop”, and after more looking and reading I understood that I had to reinstall (and how to) the firmware from the SD-card. The only problem was that I had no SD-micro adapter. Bought that today and everything worked out. The phone is now fine, and that is great, because yesterday I was prepared to throw the phone in the bin and buy a new one... Pretty panicked huh?

If of interest, this was the pages I found most help:
