    Have been using this Mod for several months just fine, but recently tried to install an Adobe program unsuccessfully and now, even though i have been able to stop the d/l and installation of the program, the phone won't boot properly. It stops at the green circle/arrow display, and after a while, goes black, then starts the process all over again.

    Here is my Recovery screen:

    Vision PVT ENG S-OFF
    HBOOT-0.76.2000
    MICROP-0425
    RADIO-26.03.02.26_M
    eMMC-boot
    Aug 20 2010

    i've tried wiping, wiping all, factory reset, reinstall of current Cyanogen 7.0.3 ROM, all to no avail.

    Anybody have any suggestions? Now three days w/o phone.

    Have a great evening! :)

    Did u make a back up of your nandroid with CWM before u installed Cyanogen 7.0.3? If so have you tried restoring that back up? If not see if u can get to recovery on CWM and get on another rom

    Tell CWM in recovery to install zip from sd card not update

    If that doesn't work I have a rooted 2.3.3 if you would like it

    Thanks, Joe and everyone else who has lent a helping hand!

    Finally just stumbled across a simple solution -- found the original ROM, d/l it, placed it on the SD card, booted into Recovery, Factory reset and wipe cache, and installed the original again.

    Then from the original ROM rerooted using the Cyanogen, tedious, adb process. But at least it seems to have worked. i'm ready to start d/l my apps again and configuring it like before.

    Have a great evening! :)

    For future reference use astro (for non rooted) or titanium back up (rooted) and back up ur apps to ur sd card then move to comp so u have a backup incase you run into somethin like this again
