    Title says it all. I altered a boot image but can't get it past the initial AT&T screen. Will formatting the boot partition fix this or make it worse?

    I used cygwin to alter the stock boot image, to rewrite part of init.rc in an attempt to move the dalvik to an empty partition (I've been using a script so far). Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    The boot "partition" contains the boot.img which is needed to boot. Formatting the boot "partition" removes the contents I.e. the boot.img

    You need to replace the broken boot.img with a know working one

    Sounds like a bad idea then... Know any programs that can check my modified image for errors? i'd like to get it working

    Not really. What did you put in?

    I unzipped the ramdisk gzip and changed the part that dictated init.rc. I also tried adding a modified init.rc to the "out" folder from the ramdisk. Neither attempt booted, getting stuck at the AT&T screen (it's first in line).

    I've got a dormmate here that has computer programmers in his family, I may have them look over the boot image I modified.
