Hey guys, Yesterday afternoon my phone crashed with the "com.htc.provider has stopped unexpectedly". After force closing it Android reboots and then crashes, this happens in a cycle and so I cannot do anything. This has rendered my phone completely unusable. Some information: Phone: HTC Hero OS: Android 1.5 with Sense UI I haven't been using a task killer. This is a standard Rom. I cannot access settings as suggested because I cannot actually get into the OS. I don't consider a factory reset and loosing all my apps, messages etc a viable suggestion as that is plain ******ed. I have tried: Taking sim out. Taking SD Card out. Took battery out. Took battery out and left it for about 5 minutes. Click randomly on screen out of pure frustration. Almost threw it against a wall. Raged at HTC. So after all this... I really need to ask. Am I completely screwed? Is a factory reset the only option here? Any suggestions?
