    Hey there

    Im having issues having my phone boot.

    I was trying to get the APPS2SD to work on the phone and patitioned the sd card. this caused all of my apps to be deleted, not a big deal so i took that as an oppurtunity to start fresh again.

    so i factory reset, wiped the cache and re-flashed Villian10.3.

    now the phone will not boot. it goes to the "Hero" screen then to the white "HTC quietly brilliant" screen and stays there. it seems to cycle, ie the screen will flash off then back to the white screen.

    it will however boot into recovery. now i've tried re- wiping and reflasing and nothing seems to work.

    when i was using the factory wipe, it gave an error about not being able to mount the EXT partition.

    :S so confused.... anyone can help me?

    I would backup any card data, reformat the whole card to one partition and then reflash.

    tried that, also tried a different SD card...

    one of the biggest problems is all my recovery stuff was on the sd card :s guess i had a momentary brain lapse.

    I think i flashed a radio image at the same time as the rom and the apps2sd and think i have royally messed up the phone :S.

    any way to start from square one? or is it time for a replacement?

    I would download the ROM you're flashing too. It's possible you got a corrupt download, which would explain it giving error messages and not booting.

    Worst comes to worst, you can pretty much always reinstall the official firmware. But so long as you can access the recovery menu the phone can be salvaged without resorting to that.
