    I just did the stock undervolted a couple days ago, everything went smoothly, then today while texting my battery died. After plugging it back in and powering up, all the text messages and emails I've received since the install are now gone. The emails I easily retrieved, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if there is a solution to get the text messages back or stop it from happening again. My text messages are important for work.

    Never had a problem here either... I've been using the Hydra undervolted kernel almost since it became available. I really don't think the kernel has anything to do with losing your messages. As far as getting your messages back... no idea, sorry about that. I'd ask if you do any sort of backup, but I suspect that if you did you wouldn't be asking the question you did.

    I do backup. But the last backup was right before the install and I'm scheduled for Tuesday and Friday.

    anytime you clear data you will lose your text messages. Best bet is to get a sms backup app.

    I just noticed my computer is not recognizing my phone, at all. I tried to go into adb shell and it says error: device not found. This must have also started at the same time. And I do have usb debugging enabled.Any idea's?

    are you able to read data at all?

    (I ask this because my phone just started messing up, it will charge but not connect to a computer unless I wiggle the cord.)

    Basically, my phone is acting completely normal, I just lost three days of data. I have everything before the install and everything after the crash. But when I plug my phone into my computer, it acts like it's plugged into the wall. I've tried changing it from 'use as disk' then back, and it still won't register that it's plugged into a computer. I'm wondering if I should do a nandroid restore back to the stock kernel? Are you not reading data?

    I restored, using Rom Mananger, to the backup right before the kernel install and the problem persists. Don't know what to do next. Anyone have an idea?

    Not sure how to get them back now. For future reference, I use this SMS Backup+ - Android app on AppBrain without any problems. It's nice because it backs them up to my google email account. I can go through them all and delete them from there if I don't want them anymore. Every time I load a new ROM on that requires a wipe of data, it's nice to know that when I restore everything all of my conversations in sms are restored as well. Good luck!

    I think I'm going to need it. I'm not concerned about the texts. The problem that concerns me, is my phone not connecting to computers. So I have no access to ADB.

    If you did a nandroid to a time when it was working but it still isnt, then I would get it replaced.
