    2. flashing a new ROM just reboots into recovery
    3. Flashing all kinds of backup and just restarts into recovery
    4. RomTools

    Are you booting into the stock recovery or a custom recovery? Can you connect to your phone via ADB? If you can ADB into your phone then you should be able to flash a new recovery and get everything running again.

    You need to download the Android SDK to your pc. Do a google search for it.

    What do you do after you download the Android SDK?

    Same thing happened to me. I did the Privacy>Factory Reset and now my phone is stuck in recovery mode. We even have the same version of Clockwork Recovery 3.2.0.0!

    I have tried everything you did, plus ADB but I really cant do anything there because everything useful needs "su" command in "adb shell" and when I do that, I just get "su not found" :(

    Please let us know if you find a solution, it would greatly help :)

    Search android central for oshi brick. READ THE ENTIRE THREAD BEFORE YOU START. This may be able to help. Also in the same forum look for stuck in recovery. Seems like a lot of people are bricking their phones trying to use Rom Manager. It is still fully supporting our phone. The recovery you have loaded is not for our phone even if it is the newest. Always make sure you only install recoveries, kernels, and roms designed for the V. Remember, Google is your friend. Use it, research, read, research some more, read some more, and make sure understand what you are doing before you do it. If you are not sure, ask someone before you try. It is much easier to help someone flash a new rom than walk them through a brick recovery.

    Try this.
    Always use the recommended recovery that the dev of the ROM posts.

    For asopCM7 and other ROMs that are compatible with ClockworkMod recovery, follow these steps:

    1) Download the recovery file to your PC: aospCWMod-VM670-20110531.img

    2) Put this file on your sdcard's main partition using your PC's card reader or usb adaptor.

    3) Download and install the Java SDK on your computer

    4) Download and install the Android SDK on your computer

    5) Press the windows key on your computer and type in command , this will open a command window

    6) Type cd c:/PATH_TO_ANDROID-SDK/platform-tools this is the location of adb.exe

    7) Connect your phone to your computer via USB and turn it on

    8) Type adb shell

    9) If you get a $ sign at the prompt, you are not rooted, see the sticky thread on rooting

    10) If you see a # sign, you are rooted, so type flash_image recovery /sdcard/NAME_OF_THE_RECOVERY_YOU_DOWNLOADED

    11) Type reboot recovery

    Your phone should now boot into your new recovery, and it should have more than 4 options, if you only see 4 options something went wrong.

    Thanks to Jerryscript. Just copied his reply from another thread.
