Hi guys, I have an Ideos x5 u8800 that I got root access to and managed to turn it onto a pretty light paperweight. I just want to know if there is anyway to fix it. I mean it's a mini PC so there must be something that can be done. So here is what happened I got root access and played around with a few of the custom launchers ADW, launcher pro, go launcher etc. They all worked fine and i loved them so I deleted the stock launcher, the phone got stuck in a force close loop that I couldn't get out of and things have only gotten worse from here. So heres what i can get into; - when i turn the phone on it boots up until it says Ideos then just stays in a loop. - if i turn it on with power and volume up I get the menu for wiping cache etc. - if i turn it on with power, volume up and down i get the purple screen. I will be buying a new phone in the first half of 2012 (thinking s3) but am rocking the old school samsung clamshell at the moment. This is deeply frustrating as I love the android OS so if there is anything I can do please let me know i am willing to try anything (would love a custom ROM). The phone cant get much more unusable so I figure it can only get better. Now just to add a twist to all that I use a OSX lion mac (got it cheap) which seems to think when i plug my phone in that it is a CD. My parents run an 11.10 ubuntu PC which we built this year. I can however borrow a windows laptop if need be. If i haven't mentioned it before now this phone owes me nothing so am just looking to try some things. If it works it works.
