    Ok I had the Virtuous v 2.6 with clockwork recover and S-off. I was using the phone today and it just froze so I rebooted and it stayed on the splash screen so I rebooted to hboot and then went to recovery which wont open it just goes to splash screen. So I did the downgrade back to 1.00 radio and .77 HBOOT to try and start over and it still gets stuck on the flash screen. Please someone what do I do?

    Wow, that's a serious stroke of bad luck right there. So I'm assuming you followed the .77/1.0 radio thread from XDA? Meaning you are now back to stock and unrooted?

    @Adabow:

    I believe iwobowtech is asking you this so he can better know EXACTLY where you are and possibly tell you what to do next.

    I think it would be wiser to use the 2.2 ruu not the 2.1 ruu. We are a 2.2 device now (we got the update in late august) and it may be beneficial to use the2.2 ruu

    Ok I am at the complete stock radio which is 1.ect and the 2.1 android but like I said earlier I cant get past the splash screen. Hboot works fine but the recovery wont start it just goes to the splash screen. Any suggestions for the next step I should take. S-Off is still set. Is there any way to put it back to S-on and just take it in since its still under the 1 year manufacture warranty?

    so you were able to downgrade radio and rom but it still won't boot?
    How do you know you are on 2.1 if the phone won't boot?

    Were you overclocking?
    Did you have set cpu to start on boot? My first guess would be an unstable kernel but what do i know.

    i would try factory reset from hboot and see what happens.

    like i said, load up hboot and do a factory reset.
    see if that helps. if not we will try something else.

    I'm on .92 hboot so it may be different. at the bottom it has a factory reset option.
    so when you select recovery it does the same thing?

    ya I would appreciate it and the steps on how to do it. Thanks for being patient. I had no problems rooting my phone and it has been running fine for a month and it just crapped out on me so I really dont feel like having a $200 dollar brick laying round.

    In the midst of all the things you have been doing, did you ever format your sdcard to FAT32? (I copied everything off mine, reformatted it, and then recopied everything back) Try removing the sdcard and booting up without it.

    Well all is solved I took it into Verizon showed them it just gets stuck on the splash screen he pulled the battery out and tried it again and no questions ask, said he was sending me a new one. So that solves the problem. Thanks for your patients and help.

    haven't heard of anyone else having this problem so it must have been a hardware issue. glad they hooked you up.
