    I rooted using Framaroot, went fine.

    I reinstalled all my apps and app data from my old phone using Titanium Backup.

    Status bar said to do reboot, which I did.

    My phone is freezing on the lock screen. I can't unlock it, I can't get in at all.

    I've tried restarting again and doing a battery pull. I don't know what else to do. Can anyone help me?

    How do I reset without being able to get past the lock screen?

    Okay I found out how to do a hard reset. It froze (temporarily) on the Virgin Mobile boot animation. I'm going through the steps to re-set up the phone now. I'm really sorry if I sound like an idiot... I rooted my Triumph and Evo V 4G with no problems and I've never felt so much like a newb.

    I don't even know if it was Framaroot or Titanium Backup that caused the issue. I would try a test but I'm coming down from a panic attack and I don't want to cause another problem.

    I think I'll just restore my apps from the market without their data. Everything important is synced with Google.

    Edit: Unless someone knows of an app and/or data that would cause this? I'm coming from the Evo V 4G and was trying to save all of my app data, especially my games, like Flow Free and Lazors. I'm going through the list now and see that some of the stock apps from the Evo got in my list of backups (Clock, Mail). Could one of those apps have caused this?

    The easiest thing I would do is download the rooted no data restore from rjwilco12 page and put phone in Odin mode and run that you would be going back to jb rooted stock its all in the op thread for midnight ROM thedakman :))or the brittons guide is sticky at top thread..

    I don't think it is possible to keep data when doing that either think it might mess with things I always try to do fresh installs.

    I was very confused by the posts, which is why I used Framaroot, which is a simple and straightforward solution for root. I was able to root my Triumph very easily thanks to agentc13's clearly written method-by-method instructions (but then, you were able to root the Triumph using Android Terminal Emulator, and that was a breeze).

    I need to be told specifically what to download and what to do with it or I get confused, unfortunately. Which is why when I have time to do CM 10.1 I'll probably be posting my checklist to make sure I have my required downloads ready and necessary steps correct.
