    After putting in a new SD card in my rooted phone, I decided to completely wipe/flash start from scratch.

    However no matter what reset I try I can't get past the ANDROID 'glass illumination scroll' animation screen.

    I've tried with the old SD card, new SD card and no SD card.

    Any ideas PLEASE

    *Sorted:

    [STEP1]- do a battery pull to power off the device (as this is the only way to do so when stuck in a bootloop)
    [STEP2]- hold the VOLUME DOWN button and the POWER button to boot into the bootloader
    [STEP3]- use the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons to navigate, and POWER to select. Navigate to RECOVERY.
    [STEP4]- select "mounts & storage" and then select the following options
    [STEP5]- format boot
    [STEP6]- format system
    [STEP7]- format data
    [STEP8]- format cache
    [STEP9]- format sd-ext (IF YOU HAVE IT)
    [IF YOU HAVE A BACKUP]
    [STEP10a]- go back to the main menu, select "back up & restore", select "restore" and restore the latest working backup.

    Glad you got it sorted :) I suspect that the nandroid restore by itself would have done the trick too.

    As this thread is about a root problem, I hope you won't mind if I move it to the All Things Root subforum?

    Not a problem, thanks

    I edited the original with my solution just in case someone stumbles across the same problem and this may help.
