I think it says something about my lack of aptitude that I bricked my phone using a Newb Proof guide. I followed the guide [GUIDE] 100% Stock Motorola Triumph *Newb Proof* which referenced ClockworkMod Recovery for Motorola Triumph and Default 100% Stock NANDROID backup, and stock recovery. I successfully replaced the factory recovery.img with CWM Recovery 188.8.131.52. I extracted Stock_Triumph_1980-01-06.00.00.34.7z to my SD card. Here's where I think I screwed up: I misunderstood the directions, "look for mounts. First format system, data, cache, and under advanced format dalvik cache..." I didn't realize I was supposed to enter the mounts directory. I selected the options from the main menu that I thought corresponded. I think I selected "wipe data/factory reset" and "wipe cache partition" before restoring from the stock nandroid. The restoration log is as follows: CWM-based Recovery v184.108.40.206 Checking MD5 sums... Erasing boot before restore... Restoring boot image... Restoring system... Restoring data... .android_secure.img not found. Skipping restore of /sdcard/.android_secure. Restoring cache... sd-ext.img not found. Skipping restore of /sd-ext. Restore complete! When I power off and power on, the phone doesn't get past the screen with the red M. However, I am still able to enter CWM-based Recovery. I've tried to redo the process a number of times with the same result. I've even tried following suggestions such as being careful to extract all files directly to their locations rather than extracting followed by drag-and-drop, etc. On the thread Exclamation [FIX]Mobile Partition - Fix For Phone Wont Boot, TheGeekRedneck explained that there are two models of triumph. I have the later model (with six barcodes behind the battery rather than seven). Next I intend to try to install a non-factory rom to see if I can get the phone working that way, but I would prefer to use the factory rom. It looked like a couple people have had a similar issue, but I couldn't find a post with directions on how to resolve the issue. I've read the following threads: [GUIDE] 100% Stock Motorola Triumph *Newb Proof* ClockworkMod Recovery for Motorola Triumph Default 100% Stock NANDROID backup, and stock recovery Exclamation [FIX]Mobile Partition - Fix For Phone Wont Boot Reload this Page [GUIDE] Installing CWM and a custom ROM on the Motorola Triumph I would be very grateful for any help.
