    Need help! I installed Aloysius 2.0.8 rom last night and now all my phone will do is show red, blue , green and yellow colors the boot animation going back and fourth all night it will not let me do anything it seem like it is suck. Is there anything I can do to puy my old system back on the phone? I tried the hold the power button and volume down key but it just does the same thing over and over and I can't do anything with the phone. Is my phone just a brick now or is there a way to make this thing work. Please Help

    First thing is first....did you make a nandroid backup?

    If you did, yes you can restore it. You need to boot into recovery:

    If you can't get into recovery that way, you can always do it from adb. First, make sure your phone is plugged into your computer and that you have the SDK installed already. Then open a command prompt, cd to your android-sdk/tools folder then type the following:

    adb remount
    adb shell
    reboot recovery

    From there you can do a nandroid restore.

    .......There is an entire guide...Please read it....


    Here is where I would start...I do not think you successfully flashed your Recovery Image. Try again, but this time use the 1.6.2 image instead. Go through the root process again. How did you root your phone originally?

    yep... read the guide...LOTS of good info in there...

    if holding Home doesn't get you into recovery... then power off.. hold volume down and power on phone while holding volume down. if that gets you into recovery, you have an older version of recover (probably 1.2.3) and really should upgrade to 1.6.2

    What happens if you accidentally renamed your nandroid folder to something else? I'm in a similar situation and normally I'd just do a restore from RA, but it says "couldn't open directory /sdcard/nandroid". If it were as simple as renaming it I'd do that but i can't find the commands for and I can't get past the animation screen?

    What do you mean when you say that you can not find the commands? Commands for what, your phone?

    If you connect your SD card to a PC you'll be able to find the folder and rename it.
