    Was bored and tired of the constant kyocera update messages, so i returned my phone back to 100% stock, removed root, let the update run, phone reboots.

    Error 8704
    phone needs service please contact provider.

    well pooh

    I doubt you're bricked if it gives you an error message, just reboot. Hold power in until it does or just pull the battery.

    Nah ive tried holding power and volume down to boot recovery, leaving the battery out for an hour even, goes right from the hydro screen to the error message.
    Bummer, wish there was at least a stock recovery you could pop on a flash drive
    dont mind wiping the phone.

    Bummer is it wasnt even me trying to jack the phone around but a darned factory update that messed it up.

    Sure kyocera said mail it to them and they would fix it, but they take forever
    and the boost store wouldnt know how to reflash their ass

    EDIT
    Nope, got the update image that was being sent out, put it on sdcard, tried to get phone into recovery, no soup
    goes immediately to the 8704 error screen.

    Well boost exchanged phone, had it update in store before leaving.
    popped my sd card back in, let it resynch then rerooted it
    back to normal.

    Glad to hear your got your phone situation handled.. By chance are you using PDAnet on this Hydro too and if so any possible way you could post instructions on my thread you replied to if you could? Im stumped on this one.

    Yes i have PDAnet 3.50
    If your phone is rooted, you install PDAnet 3.50 on your windows PC, then get the droid app from the app store

    What trouble are you having with it?
