    I'm pretty sure there isn't. What were you doing that bricked it? You have had a brick scare every few days.

    Don't root/flash roms if you don't know what you are doing or feel comfortable doing it.

    Don't take this personally but I don't think you should be flashing roms or kernels anymore. You seem to almost brick your phone everyother day.

    Yeah your right. I don't think I should have look for a solution for the 50% bug so I wouldn't of ever known about rooting

    There is a tenp fix for the 50% bug. I found it on this very forum.

    Dial *#*#$4636#*#* then hit call
    Go to phone info
    Go down to cdma auto prl and change it to gsm/cdma auto prl

    I found the fix I use the airplane trick. I was just saying I don't think I should have looked for the fix, because if I didn't I wouldn't have found out about rooting and if I wouldn't of found out about rooting I would have never almost bricked my phone every other day

    Maybe you should just read before you try...

    I have done everything people have come up with and more... Never came close to "bricking" the phone

    If your having so many problems your not doing it right

    Yeah, pretty much. Only way to learn, but I should probably give this up soon, before I get completely screwed

    Why can't you recover from a brick? Don't you have a custom recovery installed? Are you flashing roms without a custom recovery?

    Just curious, I've been "bricked" numerous times testing roms, and have been able to boot into recovery and easily restore the phone.

    Does the clockwork recovery have keybindings to hold to boot into it? Just really curious how you can brick with a custom recovery, that's the entire point of flashing a new recovery on the phone. To be able to recover from a bad boot.

    Send+Menu+End

    If you power on with these buttons (all the buttons the phone has other than home) you get to recovery...


    Skater95: Is this why you have been having so much trouble? Did you not know the correct key combo to boot into recov?

    I never booted into recovery from the brick state. I brought it down to verzion and the person took the battery out and held the power button for about 20 seconds, put the battery back in and it booted normally
