    I rooted yesterday and then tried to push some things onto the phone mostly dealing with the boot screen and am now stuck in a loop. What do I do?

    what phone? what did you push? did you have a custom ROM loaded before hand? did you make a nadroid backup before pushing?? a lot of that depends on how bricked it is..

    First, you need to boot into recovery. Being as you are stuck, you'll want to pull the battery then do this:

    Then restore your nandroid backup, which you do from recovery.

    The screen I get when I do that says HercXC some other random stuff. Clearstorage and has little android guys on skateboards? Is that the right screen? Obviously its not the nandroid screen I am used to...

    Odd there are 5 backups there even though I only remember making 2. Are they in chronological order?

    If all else fails, plug phone into computer, open up cmd prompt, cd to your sdk/tools folder, then do the following:

    adb remount
    adb devices
    adb shell
    reboot recovery


    This will only work of course if adb see's your phone, but it should boot you into recovery, if you can't get it the other way.

    ok.. restore.. then use Fresh Kitchen 1.0.5 and upgrade the recovery (or do it manually) to RA 1.6.2.. you have an OLD outdated version

    when are you people going to learn how to read before flashing something onto your phone?

    seriously.....that's the reason why people brick their phones, because they DON'T READ..

    if it's a flashable zip ...no need to push it...you copy it to the root of your sd card from recovery mode ...then you choose "flash from sdcard" ...it's all simple..

    Can you try placing the phone back onto stock RUU and re-root? Im not sure, but it is an idea...I haven't dealt with this problem before...
