    To clarify...

    A Boot Loop is when your phone just continually keeps trying to boot.
    The only cure, the dreaded battery pull. And then ... you run to the nearest computer trying to find out how the heck you're going to UNdo what YOU just did to your precious little baby.

    Or...

    A Flash Loop is when a geek obtains an Android phone, roots it within mere hours of ownership, then combs the internet forums each and every day trying to find a new ROM to flash to their precious little baby! :eek:


    Hint: There is NO fixing the second condition. Sure, there are support groups. But they only offer temporary help. And then ... sooner or later ... y'all just find yourself flashing ROMs like a bunch of heroin junkies lying in the gutter in some poorly-produced foreign film. :eek:

    Doesn't the second condition cause the first one.

    I've already flashed 3 times with my Bionic, and there's only one ROM out anyway. Just wait till there are more...

    I'm checking myself into rehab for flash addiction. When I get out I am trashing all my smartphones and buying a jitterbug.

    I have a "friend" that flashes almost every Rom possible. I..opps I mean he did not want to give up his DroidX because he did not know what kind of development would be on the Bionic. So far I...I mean he is very happy with his choice. He is waiting for the new UNL3ASH3D 1.3x to drop so he can get it on his phone.

    And I've been phoneflashing-free for 6 days now. (Only 5 of which are with the Bionic.) My hands are only shaking a little. I keep reminding myself that it's fast on it's own, and I've already gotten rid of the bloat. I keep telling myself to explore the stock stuff before wandering off to newer pastures. I think, I should wait until there are at least two compete ROMs before I flash anything...oh who am I kidding. WANNAFLASHWANNAFLASHWANNAFLASH!

    Ahem....OK, I'm back. I just turned on my OG and looked at all the nandroided ROMs that I uselessly kept on there. I can wait. I'm sure. Well, pretty sure. Fifteen percent positive?
