    Order of things that happened:
    Got 4th replacement phone
    activated
    swapped out CWM recovery (5.x.x.)
    flashed cm7 b.08
    flashed gapps, and OC kernal
    booted into a clean install. I wanted my old apps back (dang angry birds!)
    Restore nandroid, use for 1 week
    Notice wonky battery calibration, and some rarely used apps acting wonky
    boot into CWM, wipe cache, dalvik cache, and battery cache
    now, my phone won't do anything besides sit at motorola logo. What can I do to fix my error, if it is indeed an error? I called VM to just get a new phone, but they don't have any in stock... so am I screwed for a week until I can get a new one?
    Thanks
    PS if there's already a forum about this, I didn't see it. Merry christmas

    Have you tried booting into recovery?

    Yes, I tried that. I mentioned it in my first post but I deleted it before I posted it... I sounded to frantic :p I should add that I've tried recovery mode, and just booting the OS. The only thing it does is sit at the motorola logo, regardless of what I do. If I pull the battery and plug it in, it vibrates, and then shows a full battery charging icon thingy.. then the screen blacks out and shows a dead battery icon. If I unplug it and then try to boot it it shows the motorola logo; the only thing different is if I try download mode for changing the recovery...
    thanks

    when you pull the battery, leave it out. then plug it in w/ the battery out. cause your phone isnt broken, its just boot looping

    Well, I kinda figured it was bootloopin', and not broke... but no recovery option to boot into :p :eek: now we shall see in the morning (It's 10 here, gotta wrap presents :rolleyes: ) if fixing the recovery will help. now just a general knowledge question: why would my phone bootloop if I formatted cache
    and dlavik cache and battery stats? that's the only variable in the situation.
    Thanks, and merry christmas!

    happens sometimes... if the phone doesn't vibrate when you power it on taking out the battery for a few minutes usually fixes it
