Cry Stuck on boot animation screen

My Photon has been rebooting itself at night, and getting stuck on the boot screen (the one where the contents of bootanimation.zip are displayed). After the first time, I was able to start the phone after a couple tries.

But today, it just won't start. I get stuck at the boot animation screen, and that's that. I've pulled the battery and tried booting it dozens of times, but it's useless.

What can I do?

Everyone has their vices. Mine is extreme impatience.

There's a whole backstory here. I've been screwing with my phone--or, more correctly, trying to unscrew it--for days. Nine days, to be exact. It started when a crappy BusyBox installer app decided it would be a great idea to delete the BusyBox binary on my phone, then fail to reinstall it, and not back anything up.

Anyway, I've been feeling like I will probably be buying a new phone anyway, so I threw caution to the wind. I just flashed derpunlock.sbf. Now, I'm unlocked. To my surprise (because it goes against what I was told), my phone has been completely reset. It boots now, but everything is gone. Every single one of the apps I had installed. It's fully reset.

I was going to do a reset anyway. I have also had visions of smashing this phone with a 5-lb sledgehammer, so I don't really care.

Anyway, I guess my boot issue is solved.

By the way, thanks, Lokifish.
