    so i have raptor .1 and i was on droid pirate downloading themes for metamorph, when it rebooted it stayed at the android screen and wouldnt change, when i battery pull, it gets stuck at the same place, is that a brick? and if it is how do i un-do it?

    when it bricks your phone wouldnt be able to do anything at all... have you tried Wiping Dalvik-Cache and Cache, sometimes it takes longer then usual to load up just give it a few moments..

    well deathtoall said its brick when it does that.. i had that problem before it was stuck on the same screen and i kept on wiping it and i factory reset it a few times to try to bypass that screen and it work for me... just keep fingers cross and keep doing it and hope it isnt the deaf of your phone..

    Just try to re flash Raptor that should fix it.

    Good Luck!

    EDIT: It is possible you installed a theme that was not compatible re installing raptor should fix.
