    i was trying to flash my recently rooted 621 to MIUI. after it installed it rebooted and now is in bootloop. i don't know if i skipped a step or if something else caused it.

    i don't mind doing a factory reset- i don't have anything on the phone aside from some paid apps which i backed up with titanium, but the factory reset didn't work. it brings the boot loop screen again.

    Remove battery
    Put it back in
    Hold the home key and press power and hold until it boots
    Release the power key
    then release the home key
    Press volume up and down when you see the exclamation point
    Wipe data
    Wipe cache
    Advanced - wipe davlik
    Reboot
    It takes at least 10 minutes on your first miui boot so grab a beer or watch some TV
    If that doesn't work check your zip download with win zip on desktop

    thanks, but i got impatient and started trying other things. =p i was able to get it running by sbf to milestone x. although this is good to know for future instances. i didn't do the "advanced - wipe davlik" when i was trying it so that's probably a reason it wasn't being reset. now i have to go in, root it and try again.

    i just want to get the wifi tether and get rid of the bloatware- is there an easy way to do the latter without flashing a ROM?
