    So after rooting my phone and it worked fine, i went to do a back up. I turnd off the phone got to the white screen, went to back up and clicked that, it went through sucessfully. i went to reboot and it went to a black screen and nothing happened. It is stuck at a black screen with a green light blinking on the top. I waited a while then took the battery out. It seemed to boot up fine, i got to where i could interact on my front screen then suddenly shut down and went back to the blinking green light on the top...any help would be great thanks

    do a battery pull and press and hold power+vol down. this will get you to recovery. what recovery are you using and what did you use to back up your rom? was it rom manager by chance?

    that is just hboot scanning for an img file. that is normal. from there you should have an option for recovery. select that.

    You could wipe and flash the rom again. And might want to put the phone on the charger for a bit.

    well ok so sounds like something happened with your recovery. you can get into hboot(bootloader) which is a good thing. so what we need to do is now get you a working recovery. here is what you need to do:
    1.download this file; PC36IMG_RA_2.3.zip
    2.just delete the "_RA_2.3" part of the name so that is named PC36IMG. do not add an extra .zip as windows hides extensions
    3.transfer the file over to the root(no folders) of your sd card. in this case you may need a card reader
    4.power off or pull the battery
    5.press and hold power+vol down.
    6. this will get you to hboot and it will scan automatically for the PC36IMG file.
    if all goes well you should have a new recovery. from there you should reflash your rom and make a nandroid backup.

    cyaniarb? whos dat? the tiamat dev? anyways, im just a proponent of whats been working well for me. Ive tried tons of roms, let em run for a couple days, and i always revert back. Besides the time spent on making my phone exactly the way i like it, it just seems to work better than the alternatives, albeit verly slightly in some cases. Its just that i have yet to fine something thats superior. I know results vary from phone to phone, but still... I guess i dont hafta be such an advocate of this combo since others also seem to be, but i like to give credit where its due. SO THERE!!!! LoL and its my cash sow, YOU CANT HAVE ANY!!! jk ;)
