    1. Get SD card out of phone.
    2. Put it in your computer, if you have the adapter, or put the SD card on another device.

    Thats how I did it :)

    This is worth a BUMP-Seems a few have been needing this lately(You testin'-flashin' Foos:eek:
    Always a good idea to download to your esternal SD right after root and leave it there just in case.
    Props to Shiny for the OP and MT for the creation:cool:
    Here is a video(Sorry if your neck hurts after watching it-will flip it in a few):eek:Last part was good for a laugh for sure:p

    LG Spectrum - Rooted. CWM recovery 5.8.2.0

    Put exitrecovery.zip on root of SD card. Choose it, applied it, Installaton Complete. You may now reboot your phone.

    Reboot goes right back in CWM recovery. Tried 3 times, same results. :thinking:

    Help,

    Dude, this saved my butt, THANKS MUCH. Now I get an error message saying that I need to have a METRO SIM card. Small problem compared to being totally screwed, if anything I can get one from Metro but is there a work around to this?

    Also, as long as Im rooted, I was enjoying playing with different ROMS. Any suggestions so I dont have this cataclism again?

    Take look in your settings-about phone-what does the prl say/phone number is still there also? Let me know pls.
    As for the choice of ROMs they are all here dependent on the version you are on:

    You'll just have to do some trial and error(hopefully more trying) to see what works best for your phone:)

    the PRL Version is 3029. this is all new to me so I have no idea whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, or any thing :rolleyes:

    As for the sim card issue .... it turns out that a spec of dust can go a long way in screwing up a perfectly good droid!

    thanks,
    paul

    3029 is the latest Paul so that's good:thumbup:
    I was asking as a lot of esteem's seem to magically go into "test" mode(prl would say 40000:eek:)
    What happened with the card:thinking:

    Another thing I've done when stuck in a boot loop is remove the battery, and hold down both volume buttons and the power button simultaneously for 5-10 seconds. That has worked for me in the past.

    I pulled the sim out, figuring I would see if I could do something before trekking to Metro, and there it was, sitting there like it was on a dinner plate, a tiny dog hair. How it got there I have no idea, but once I shooed it away, the sim worked fine.

    Im just glad to be up and running again. Its midterms for me and I was torn between writing about 'the exclusionary rule of evidence' and the three exceptions or trying to unbrick my cell. seems both will work out now.

    We've all been there ;)
    And galaxy player? What's it doing? Maybe I can find something that may help you, no guarantees though.
